p.1 #1 · p.1 #1 · White Lightning X1600 keeps drooping


I have a WL X1600 and I am having issues with the softbox dragging the light down.
I think the Large Octobox I have is heavy for the light
When I disassembled the area with the tightening handle, there is only a felt material there.
I dont know if I am missing some sort of anti sliding plate.
Can anyone post a photo of that area so I can see if I am missing any parts
I tried to google it but the photos are all tiny
Thank you in advanced

Your best bet is to ask buff tech support.

Having said that, my WLs will take a largish modifier without moving. I see any anti-sliding plate or such. Just the "felt", or whatever the fibrous disk is made of.

The White Lightning has two umbrella slots on the top. However you mount the heavy modifier, you can mount a rod with a counterweight in the other, going the opposite direction. I haven't seen a "real" one for sale in years, but they are too expensive anyways and it's easy to cobble together something yourself.

I like to use 84" softboxes when there is room. This helps a lot.

Per request - washer on one side, felt pad on the other.
