Thanks for the info Brian. That's really helpful. I guess like anything else, you get what you pay for.
do the photoflex strip lights have true 40 degree grids?
They have the grids with the square openings. They could be 38º x 38º or 43º x 43º, but close enough.
Not that louvers aren’t handy. They are generally lighter and cheaper than grids, and I wish that more manufactures offered them as an alternative.
If you want to see how it is at the top end, look at Chimera: they offer grids in 20º, 30º, 40º, 50º, and 60º; louvres in 20/60º and 30/50º, and cloth barndoors for the sides of softboxes to further reduce spill. Also silver or white interiors, and recessed front or flush front for combining two lights and two boxes to make one larger box.
