I bought a broncolor pack and head and haven't had the chance to pick up the radio trigger yet, seeing as i shoot with a 60d (which doesnt have a pc sync port) is there a way to use my speedlight as a hotshoe to pc sync port adapter so i can fire my strobes wired without the speedlight going off?

No - the pc-sync port on speedlites are input-only. But you can get an adapter to do the job. From memory, Pixel TF-321 is one such.

If you are in USA, FlashZebra has great products and service.

I tried retiring, but gave it up - it's a dead end

There are many such adapters available. (external link) They're common flash accessories.

Thanks for that guys, i knew there was already an adapter just thought the speedlight might be able to do it.
