The Canon 580EX II which has a guide number of 45 at ISO 100 & 50mm..  This flash claims "Guide Number: 164' at ISO 100 & 50mm".

Like they say, if it sounds to good to be true then it probably isn't.  This is most likely the greatest exaggerated guide number I have ever seen in print.

I think the apostrophe after the 164 means feet rather than the industry standard meters. This would give the Bolt a more believable GN of about 50.
