Does this softbox work with Godox S-Type Bracket?

The Godox S-Type bracket for speedlites:

How does that work/fit with this softbox, for example:

That one is for a "speedring"

That Godox bracked will accept Bowens mount modifiers. The softbox you linked below is made for PCB (alien bees, einstein) mounts. If you check the "What's included" tab it says: "One (1) Speed ring for Alienbees strobe lights".

If you can find one of their softboxes that comes with a Bowens compatible speedring then it would work with the Godox bracket.

I just realized Godox also has the same bracket for Elinchrom - is there any reason to pick one over the other? Is one more popular/easier to work with?

One reason could be the case, where someone already has Bowens or Elinchrom modifiers and they want to use their speedlites with their existing modifiers then they would need the matching bracket.

Another reason may be that even though one currently has no modifiers, one type or the other is more readily available to them so they would make the choice based on that.

That Cowboy Studio softbox is terrible quality as with many of their branded products. Better to order a Godox softbox off eBay. Neewer is another brand that is economical.

As mentioned, most often the choice will be dictated by what one already owns.
If starting from scratch, the only advantage the E version offers is that the Elinchrom adapter has the speeding closer to the bracket which means that the flash tube is easier to get into the modifier for better coverage. This is most important when using the bracket with bare bulb lights such as the Cheetahlight 180 or 360.

Since I do not own either existing items, does that mean I should just head down the elinchrom route, then?

If you are getting it for a speedlie just get a speedlite softbox.
