Biggest non PLM I own is the big Chimera but regardless of the brand of light I'm using with that large of softbox (54x72 inch) I use Chimera C-stand grip head adapter to let the speedring support the weight of the head and the mass of the softbox. Why put unnecessary strain on the head's stand mount as they aren't really designed for that kind of torque? This is true regardless of whether you use Profoto, Elinchrom, Hensel, Speedotron Blackline, Dynalite,or Paul C. Buff lights.
Will they hold it? Sure. Is it a smart idea to use a flash head's stand attacment as a highly levered fulcrum? No.
