Maybe it is not an issue with the transmitters, but the fact that your batteries aren't recharging fast enough. I know i have to wait a few seconds on my vivitar 285 and my 430ex to have enough juice to fire again.

zelseman,

you might be rigth that is the only thing I can think of after posting here...I will slow down and take a shot then wait a sec , then fire again...
I might try to set flash to llike 1/128 the shoot faster to see if I can get less mis flashes.
it could be recycle thing...
thanks,
Joe

While Cybersyncs are great, they will not improve your flash recycle time.

If that's not it I would look for a loose connection/fit at the camera hot shoe or in the cable between the flash and the receiver.
