How about ...what ISO do I need when I use my Ws AD's shooting at f11 and using a white shoot thru with the closest point ft from the subject.

Now flip it to a silver bounce umbrella with the furthest point ft from subject
...or Softbox or beauty dish etc etc etc

Point being, most current camera bodies can shoot higher than lowest ISO, and when your comfortable shooting other ISOs, the power of your strobes (modified or not) increases!!!
