I'm looking to pickup some strobes.

I'm currently shooting Moded Cactus V2s with 2 Promatic FTD5600's and my canon 420 EX.

I'm eying up RPS strobes, Cybersyncs, and a vegabond.

I'm not in need to crazy power, but i woudl like a decent setup.

Alienbees are alitlte out of my range.

Ideas? :)

It really depends on what you're shooting. If you want to look more professional and do it for a living, you might want to look into bigger strobes. But if you're just learning or starting out for fun, just buy some cheap flashes like the vivitar or a nikon sb24 and some cheap syncs like cactus triggers. Read up at Strobist.blogspot.com and you'll learn that for many applications, small flashes can deliver a surprisingly powerful pop!
