Yes the Zeus fits the bill 11 lbs, recycle of 2.5 sec at full, small and dropable,

BUT it is 120v 6ohz and if they made a Zeus with 220v 50hz then I have gotten what I need.

But I called Paul Buff and asked them and they said they only make the Eienstien in 220v.

So If the Zeus could run at 50hz  with a transformer then great but it cannot.

OK, I saw you were from Chicago, and didn't realize you needed 50Hz equipment.

Have you checked with PCB to see if they can modify the Zeus or White Lightning X3200s to work on 220V/50Hz mains?

I live in Thailand and like much of SEA we have 220V/50Hz mains.  PCB was willing to modify AlienBees for a small price, but required order from and delivery to the US so as not to compete with their Australian affiliate.

It is also possible to use some types of 110V/60Hz studio strobes (i.e. ABs) with a 220V to 110V transformer, but it does slow down the recharge.  Check with PCB for that info on Zeus or White Lightning X3200s.
