As to the double-arm hot shoe mounts, why would that be better than two off-camera speedlights? Seems much more awkward.

I have no objection about the choice on TT350s (small, cheaper than the Meike)

But regarding position, for my needs, they have to be fixed on camera (cage), as vast majority of my macro shots are on areas I can't position the units where I want to. Most of the bugs are on a branch or somewhere I can't just place the flash units and take the shot (someone would have to hold them whilst I take the shot)

So an articulating arm is a must for my needs. I was considering a cage plus this: https://www.amazon.co.uk/SMALLRIG-Adjustable-Friction-Monitor-Rig-2066/dp/B076HLBZDX

Which commander do you use for the TT350s? The Meike will set me back 300EUR (and I don't need the ring mount!), so perhaps the Godox combo could save me some money
