You might need to move that 11" forward and backwards more than you will that 16" to get the same light.

Or maybe the 11" gets you more variety as a result.

I have the Maxilite and HP. Not a huge difference

I'm thinking from 8 to 10 feet back it may not matter when using as fill.

11" sounds pretty handy for hauling around.

Then get the Elinchrom High Performance Reflector, 10-1/4", 50 Degrees, for Elinchrom Flash Heads MFR # EL26137

Yup, that's what I've been thinking.
Thanks.

I received it the other day! I love it! Only tested it indoors so far, but it's amazing! Can't wait to use it outside tomorrow.

Light was about 10Ft from clients.

Really blown away that a CL-360 can do this in this type of light. This Mod ROCKS

A nice update on a look made famous by the band from the 70's and 80's - Devo

Scott,
Just to satisfy my curiosity, what was the power setting on the 600x. Based on my settings Friday night with a big PLM soft silver at 12 ft, I'd think you must have been at 1/64th or lower.
