I'm looking for a flash bracket I can mount at Pocket wizard. I would rather that be a cold shoe but would like to see some setups and hear some recommendations.

Thanks!

I use a Custom Brackets flash bracket for my 1Ds Mark III. Speedlight mounted as usual with Canon off-camera cord.

The Custom Bracket has pre-drilled 1/4" holes running down the vertical bar. I threaded a 1/4" bolt (no head) into the PWII tripod mount, feed it through the bracket above the hand-grip. Rubber gasket on both sides protects both the bracket and the PW (hey, I'm anal, okay?) The gasket also keeps the PW positioned where I want it without slipping. Hardware stores carry knobs that look almost identical to the custom bracket knobs. This attaches to the opposite side of the holding bolt. Mini-phone sync easily threads around to the camera, allowing simultaneous triggering of the speedlite and studio strobes.

This is a very clean set-up and looks like it came stock with the bracket----works great!

Really Right Stuff, wedding flash bracket with an extra FA QR CS2-allows my off camera cord to mount my fill flash and the pocket wizard or CST from Paul Buff to trigger my off camera main speedlight-(connected to camera through the pc connection)

Which PW are you mounting? I am using Stroboframe 350 bracket with PW Plus 2. I mount the flash straight down near the left handle on the flat bar the camera rests on. They have a hole there already. I have a Manfrotto cold shoe screwed into it pointing downwards and the PW slips into it. Otherewise, there is no place to put the PW and a flash on the bracket at the same time.
Here are two pics. It is on a tripod because I could not hand hold this as I took a picture of it. Otherwise, I hold the bracket with the PW pointed down.

Thank you for posting that Ken. It looks a bit more involved than I want to get.
