Has anyone tried this CONONMARK parabolic that comes with the adjustable arm?

Now I am thinking I will just but the Cheetah Chopstick Reflective Focusable System and one of their paras... or save more and later buy the Parabolix 45.
Anyways, I was not able to change the thread title or delete it :/

hahaha I always count on you to provide your valuable feedback about which is and is not true para, etc. So no input on either of those options (Cheetah with arm and parabolix)? :D

Not yet, but I am interested to get one :)

About the ricebowl, their design and shape are similar to the rime lite I have.

For most, the Parabolix can be costly (I know that it's relative) when you include the grid and diffuser with the combo package.


Canon Forever! 5D III, 1DX, L Primes & Zooms, Kino-Flo, Einsteins, Diva Ringlight, Phottix Indra 500 TTL, Interfit S1's..... Full studio....
