1) The deep octas are as deep as you could want.

The deep octas are too small, 100cm is an 8.8 ft2 area, a 6x4 softbox is about 3x that, 24 ft2. Heck, the deep octa is smaller than the 3x4 I call the "small" softbox.

And the biggest Rotalux, period, is the 100cm square,

I'll stop there while you get your facts right.

Why? I gave you the courtesy of responding when you went on and on and on with your near total absence of facts.

The fact here is very simple.

Other brands of light support a standard Chimera, Plume, Westcott, etc. deep 4x6 softbox, without needing what Elinchrom describes as "The featherweight box", because other brands have a more robust attachment system than the Elinchrom.

You've made numerous attempts to distract from that fact with comments about how easy they are to mount, or questions like "Have you ever broken a genuine rotalux speedring with a rotalux softbox on an elinchrom light?"

That's flat out not the issue, and you know it. That's a fact, and I've certainly got it right.
