Re: Pocket Wizards dont fire consistently

You're correct that they're a work in progress. The easiest testament to this is that Joe McNally -- Mr. TTL if he can with his speedlghts himself -- worked as a beta tester but doesn't yet carry them in his kit bag (he opts for PWIIs and PWIIIs). His rationale (or who he said in November, when I was in the audience at a seminar in Tampa) is that they still have reliability issues.

I own the Control TL system, love it for my Quadra -- lets me shoot via hypersync as fast as I want. I also use them with my SBs. But I also have Skyports for the bulk of my Quadra work (and to control the power when I use the Control TLs) and a PWII and PWIII for times when I'm shooting along with friends who use PWs.
