Sorry to pull up a zombie thread but are these extenders available anywhere online still? I don't see them anywhere on Cheetahstand's site.

If you are talking about the extenders to move the bulb farther out, there were never any officially available units. a couple of people fiddled around with building them but nothing was productized.

Same is true if you are talking about the cable that moved the light off the unit.

Cheetahstand does offer a low profile Bowens speed ring insert that moves the tube further into the modifier (in most cases). They come in 2 diameters.

Something else I was reading on the forum led me back to this thread, (Holy Zombie Thread Revival Batman!)

In all the time that has gone by, and all the advances since,. I had completely forgotten that in essence, the Godox dominance of the affordable and mobile strobe market, with everything ranging from speedlites to 600WS strobes on batteries and all the amazing wireless connectivity, started here with an affordable alternative to the "big" Quantum Flash. Reading this thread, one can watch first hand as those helping guide the development of the "CL 180" AD-360 etc. disussed it all in real time.

It's quite a piece of history, and resulted in THE system that all others had to struggle to keep up with. The Early distributors and support have been replaced with Adorama and Amazon etc. CheatahStand is back to selling stands, not strobes.. fascinating history to look back on.

Yup, pretty amazing. It's worth a read for anybody getting into flash.

Besides being fascinating it was also very expensive as I recall, especially for those of us who tried to keep up with the latest and greatest. The CL180 and CL360 were the gateway for the most innovative time in flash history. Godox definitely set the pace for years to come with some really great products in a fully integrated system, but it was also interesting to see what other manufacturers were bringing to market as well. Godox made a few bad decisions with product development that still have me scratching my head to this day, but when comparing product support with some other manufacturers, Godox was fairly proactive in solving issues with their products with either firmware updates or component updates when necessary.
