You could try this with the metz, but be warned, I'm not sure it has full overheat protection, people used to complain of burning smells from the 58AF1..

I had a AF1 that did this

End of the day, if doing heavy usage, especially at full power, then you should look at the proper portable strobes, e.g. Quadra RX or any of the other popular ones, these are just better on every level, and great for this kind of usage..

I´ll probably be going this way. My problem is that most times i work alone so i´m trying to keep equipment weight to the minimal and i´ve been getting excelent results using only the F58 with A77 / 16-50 combo
