Correct me if I'm wrong, but the Rovelight is almost twice as bright, right? And also, the CL-360's portability is compromised by the battery pack. I love how the Rovelight needs no cables at all. My primary use for it will be to overpower the sun, so the portability is very attractive to me.
Its considerably more than twice as bright in most modifiers. I get 1.8 stops over, in a Phottix Luna octobox.
And 0.8 stops over the Godox RS600P.
(Its similar in other softboxes, using the Luna a number of people have been able to confirm similar results with exactly the same softbox/modifier though).
And not only that, the HSS mode is more usable than the AD360 because there is no limit to shots, and you don't really need to worry about turning the HSS mode off, as it only looses 0.2 stops if left on (full power is no loss or change).
Here is a direct comparison between the RoveLight RS-600, Godox RS600P, and Godox AD360, at x-sync and in HSS at 1/1000th.
Its not easy to see like this, but I was getting 0.8 stops between the RoveLight and RS600P, and a further 1 stop down to the Witstro (1.8 stops total).
The AD360 is still considerably lighter and easier to handle (weight wise) than the RoveLight, so they are quite different. The considerable extra light from the RoveLight makes the extra weight well worthwhile though if power is what you need.
So I wouldn't like to have to choose one or the other there, as they both have slightly different purpose /advantages.
Its a killer light for the price at the moment though if you want power and speed / portability. Especially if HSS is of interest.
