I just received a couple of foldable Octagon Softbox from Amazon. They are well put together and less than the PCB boxes I have bought. They are gridded as well.

I did it! I am jumping ship. Just sold my Elinchrom Ranger kit locally and bought 2x AB1600's along with light stands and AC9's. Also sitting in my shopping cart right now is a WL X3200.

Now here's what I need help on. Do I buy PCB modifiers or try and save money and go 3rd party? If 3rd party, which brand? I want 2 large strip boxes, gridded, and 1x 47" octabox. I haven't decided whether or not I want the grid for the octabox yet. Hoping for lots of input.

I ordered a fotodiox softbox from amazon. The build seems about as nice as the PCB ones that I use at my school. I asked a similar question last week and they suggested another brand. Now on the grids, snoots, beauty dishes, and parabolic umbrellas I have not seen enough of a price different to try something other than the oem.

Hey, could someone suggest a couple of light modifiers (I can really only afford about $100 worth, give or take) for the AB800? I'm doing family/military/senior portraits, some pre-wedding photos, and maybe some more model-esque stuff.

$100? Umbrellas.

I'll have a bit more money from clients. I just need something to start off with. Shoot thru, or reflective? Any other suggestions?

You could get a few umbrellas and be under 100. Check youtube for videos comparisons, someone had one where they show the difference between the light you get with different types.
