Not happy about this, I contacted the retailer who spoke to his distributer. The answer I got back was that, after 9/11, companies were asked to make infrared slaves much weaker, so they couldn't be used to trigger things that go boom from very far away.

Somebody's telling porkies !

Even the best Bowens IR receiver - or any other for that matter - even from a VERY old flash equipment won't match a Wein SSR cell, and they haven't been 'clipped' in range.

I suggest you contact Bowens directly and request that they sort this out for you.

Theres only one sun. Why do I need more than one light to get a natural result?
