Does anyone know any alternative to Elinchrom Suqare Reflector EL26146?

The build quality of EL26146 is excellent. Saddly, It was discontinued.

BTW, I have rotalux 70x70 diffuser, and I don't want to buy the grid attachment. I need something fast to set up. Setting up two 70x70 rotalux takes time to me.

Had one and sold it. It is excellent and very versatile. They are long gone, but there's someone willing to make a good penny off of one on ebay.

Also at Helix photo in Chicago I saw one sitting in a pile. They had adapted it to fit something else for their rental dept, which isn't a big deal to switch back, but sadly they no longer had the grid for it.

I have one, and it is an excellent modifier.

If you are using it for commerce, buy the one on eBay it's worth it if you consider the alternatives out there.

Yes, I've seen that one on eBay. If it is new, I might consider it.

I am thinking about beauty dish + grid combo, like this one below.
What do you think about it? A good alternative to EL26146?
