I have the 500W britek kit and bought an extra softbox so I have 2. Initially they are difficult but now that I have put them up and down quite a few times it's really not that difficult or time consuming. They just take some practice and willingness to try a few different ways to assemble them. Here is my trick to taking them appart. first take off the diffuser and place the hood on the floor face down (mounting ring up) then push down on the ring next to one of the slip joints just enough to take the tension off the slip joint then slide it out. the rest come pretty easy after that.

Considering the price I think they are really great. Also, I have only one slightly bent support rod, the rest aren't bent at all, although I don't think it really matters. Mark

I agree, the first several times it was a TAD difficult but I can get them up/down in under a minute now. The Arri softboxes I have are just as hard. Lowel are the best but, as mentioned, are much more costly.
