The rovelight is twice as powerful at full power (and more powerful again in HSS), but the streaklight is the better light, and definitely part of the better flash system.

Rovelight and transmitter just have too many issues. Rovelight is powerful but you need a another radio system to do HSS because the Rovelight transmitter is not HSS capable. You also need a transmitter, such as the Odin or Godox X1, with flash sync timing to optimize the flash exposure when in HSS.

SL360 is thermal protection limited to only 10 1/1 pops in HSS and 20 @ 1/2 and around 40 @ 1/4 etc... If you need full power in HSS your best to go faux HSS and use a transmitter again with flash sync timing to optimize the flash exposure.

I wouldn't recommend either of these flash units but rather the Godox AD600BM if you don't need TTL. I have a couple of Rovelights that I will be selling and I still have some CL 360's (same as Streaklights) as backups to my AD360II's and AD600B's.

AD600BM's or AD600B's (TTL version) and an XT32 transmitter is a great combination for Manual flash and HSS.
