Re: Cheaper Alternative to Westcott 1x3 Rapid Box?

If you're experienced with softboxes and speedrings, yes.

If you haven't used a strip box before, practice a few times at home. Make sure you get a speedring that can handle strip boxes, the holes for the strips are usually labeled 'S' on the good speedrings. If not, use some nail polish.

The Rapid Box and Aputure's Dome have terrible assemblies, I never understood the need to depart from the simple and reliable speedring.
