Just got my 35" Octagon Softbox from Paul Buff, It is so easy to put together onsite, and creates very nice light....Does anyone else use their equipment?

They're a very popular brand. Scan through this forum and you'll see lots of threads about PCB. What strobes are you using?

I used White Lighting for the first few years when I got started and loved the quality of light.
I now have two Starflash units and they are awesome. I use Alien Bees for the background.

I use Einstein strobes and am very happy with them. Search the forums and you'll find literally hundreds of threads about Paul Buff products.

They're likely the most popular brand of lighting equipment in the USA....

You're getting criticism because you're equivalently going to a car forum and ask if anyone has ever heard of Ford Motors.
