Anyone have these and can explain the differences in results?
Thanks

I have the sunlite/soft silver Lastolite and I love it. The soft silver is 50% silver and 50% white, so you get a little more light than just white but it's not as crazy bright as silver. The sunlite is 30% gold and 70% silver so you get some warmth without being too strong (I always thought pure gold was way too much). They also make sunfire which I believe is 70% gold and 30% silver. (I think "soft gold" for other brands are similar with about 50/50 gold/silver but it depends on each brand). The build quality of the Lastolite are nice too.

Lastolite has a soft gold and I wondered what was different to lastolite sunlite.

They don't have soft gold for the circular ones but they do for one of the tri-grips (but they never say what combo it has on their website). I'd guess it's 50/50 but I don't have one to tell you.

Trigrips are what I'm looking at.

I just looked the the detail view for the soft gold on B&H, it's 1/3 gold, and 2/3rds either silver or white (maybe white which would set it apart from sunlite).
