Just confirming my noob findings. I have a few pocket wizards and a few Canon speedlites. I will need a connection between the PW and the lights. Is Flash Zebra the best way to get that connection??
I have a 580 ii, 580, 550 and 430. (yea what a mess of differences). I just want to make some sense out of what I am trying to do.

You will need a PC cable for the 580's and a hotshoe mount of some sort for the 430's and 550.

I usually buy cables that I need on Ebay, but Flashzebra should have what you are looking for if you do not want to go the ebay route

Just get the hotshoe with the cable attached for all your flashes.

Why worry about a shoe for this and a cable for that. All flashes have the center hotshoe connection that fires them. Slide them in this adapter, plug the cable into your PW and start shooting.
