I believe it's spelled Britek. You might find answers in the photon section on this forum, you should get better results posting there. I have not used them, wish I knew the answer, it's a good question.

I did a search and came up with all these from this forum listing this company name. - http://www.dvinfo.net/conf/search.php?searchid=1085239



Good luck with that one.

Peace!

I bought two 1K softboxes from them and they lasted less than 6 months with normal wear-and-tear shooting conditions. Poorly constructed. They did work great before they fell apart, so if you maintained them set-up in a semi-permanentt studio situation, they may suit you fine. But putting them up and taking them down every week, and then transporting them in my lightkit box, they just kinda...fell apart.

Brian:
Thank you for the info.
most of the comments were neg. on the softboxs
most were because they very hard to assem.and take down
I guess the old saying you get what you pay for holds true with these softboxs.
Now i know what i'm not going to buy
thank you
Joe
