FL-BKM03 twin flash bracket questions
Mar 27, 2012

I'm considering getting one of these but detailed information about it is a little scarce. I'm hoping someone out there has one and can answer a couple of questions.

If anyone has one and has used it a bit, can you tell me how is it holding up? I've read one report which indicated it was a little loose and tended to creep in use (although that was an isolated experience).

Also, I have only one RC flash (a Metz), but also an Fl-36 and FL-50. I'm considering using manual or auto with optical slaves, but am having trouble finding optical slaves with lock nuts which would allow them to be locked on to the bracket shoes. Can the flash shoes supplied with the bracket be substituted for an optical slave with a standard 1/4" threaded hole in the base?

Thanks

Mario
