CheetahStand Exclusive!

Convert your Paul C. Buff softbox to work with Bowens mount flashes. IMPORTANT NOTE: Please measure the diameter of your existing insert to make sure it is compatible. The outer diameter of this insert is 139mm (5 1/2"). Not all Paul C. Buff softboxes use this insert. See the video for details.

PRODUCT UPDATE! We have confirmed that some Paul C. Buff softboxes are now using a 144mm speedring insert. If your softbox has a 144mm insert, see this product instead. 144mm Low Profile Bowen Speedring Insert

This ring does not work with Godox AD-B2 and Apture LED light

This Low Profile Bowen speedring insert will help you make the most of the light from your flash, especially with the Godox AD600, AD600 Pro, Flashpoint XPLOR 600, XPLOR 600 Pro. It is designed to fit softboxes with interchangeable speedring inserts. This allows you to use your existing softboxes with different lights.

The flash tube on the Godox AD600 and Flashpoint XPLOR 600 sits very close to the head. With a standard Bowen mount, the base of the flash tube is covered by the speedring, which may lower the light output. The low-profile design of this ring extends the flash head further into the softbox, distributing the light from the flash more efficiently and evenly.

On the Godox AD600 Pro and Flashpoint XPLOR 600 Pro, the standard speedring can cover a portion of the heat sink. This speedring insert covers much less of the heat sink, allowing more air flow to keep the flash cooler. A cooler flash tube will last longer and produce more consistent light.

Although it was designed for the flashes listed above, it's use is not limited to those flashes. The low-profile insert can be used on most flashes with a Bowen mount to improve the quality of light versus a standard depth Bowen insert.

We carry two other sizes of this speedring insert, in addition to this 139mm (5 1/2"):
5 2/3" (144mm) - Fits Jinbei softboxes and any other softbox with a 5 2/3" (144mm) speedring insert
6" (152mm) - Fits Cheetah Quick Series and Quick Silver softboxes and any other softbox with a 6" (152mm) speedring insert

Make sure to watch the instructional video below on how to measure your softbox to make sure you order the correct size. The video also shows how to install the insert on your softbox.

Installation Notes: No mounting screws or washers are included. Simply use the screws and washers from your softbox. If any thumbscrews are used in your existing mount, you may need to replace those with a standard phillips head screws because thumbscrews may be too long and won't allow the ring to be fully inserted into the flash.

5 of 5 Works Perfectly August 12, 2020
Reviewer: Robert McCullar from Santa Rosa Beach, FL United States  
With this simple and inexpensive speed ring I am able to use a couple of Paul C Buff light modifiers that have been living in a dark corner of my closet, saving me a considerable sum of money.

The build quality is excellent, and the fit is perfect. The conversion took me no more than five minutes.

5 of 5 Speedrings fit perfectly for my PCB modifiers March 20, 2020
Reviewer: JLee  
The low profile Bowen Speed Ring fit perfectly for my PCB modifiers. I have the modifiers with the 139mm diameter and these speed rings fit exactly.

5 of 5 Paul Buff to Bowens Mount March 18, 2020
Reviewer: David Suarez from Chicago, IL United States  
Great product.  Well made.  Saved me a lot of money not having to sell my Alien Bee Modifiers and buying all new ones for my Westcott F400 lights.

5 of 5 Works great but needed modification March 8, 2020
Reviewer: Richard Sundmacker from BUTTE, MT United States  
The only problem I had with this insert was using a Godox S bracket. The Buff softbox (30x40) has 4 thumb screws that were too tall and I couldn't get it to mount. Fortunately, I was able to find nylon washers that were half the thickness of the Buff washers and that gave enough clearance to mount the bracket and still use the thumb screws.
