I bought a QBox 24" at the tail end of Nov back in 2010. I used it maybe twice before I became very ill in Jan of 2011 and was not able to resume shooting again till around Oct of 2011 where I might have used this box on two to three shoots. In 2012 I would guess that it has been out on shoots maybe 25 - 30 times making the total use for the box less than 50 times so far. I like to mount this box on painter pole using a Kasey adapter to take with me on engagements and senior shoots.
What has happened is it looks like the fabric has pull loose from the frame stitching on three of the four sides where the box attaches to the mount. When this happens there is not enough tension to hold the box to the ring mount so the box flops around and falls off if tilted. Has anyone else experienced any issues with their box coming apart after a year or two of shooting?
I love this box, but at this rate I will have to be changing one out every year to year and half of shooting. Not sure if I should stay with the QBox or look for another portable box similar that might be more durable.
