I have perhaps 10 differing brands of speedring and they are all within a few millimeters of each other in overall diameter - I do have one softbox which is no longer square - but thats due to a bent rod and nothing to do with the speedring.
Yeah my softbox looks eff'd up.

This is the speedring that comes with the 26" portalite softboxes.

That is way smaller than the speedring that I got. Anyplace where I can find this? All the speedrings I saw online where the type that I got and does Elinchrom even sell these seperately?

That does look smaller than the speedrings I have which would suggest that the OEM Portalite softboxes can't be used with third party speedrings without madification. Whenever I've had to use Elinchrom lights I never use the portalite boxes (in the kits) as I don't like the quality of the light, I just pull out a speedring fitted with an Elinchrom adapter and use my Multiblitz or other softboxes.
Hi Ted, what makes the quality of light inferior on these portalite boxes? I might just end up scrapping these and get better ones if i need another speedring.
