I was surfing the web about a month ago and came across the site of a manufacturer that made a softbox with rod/s for mounting to the umbrella holder on the light stand, rather than to the lighting fixture via the good ol' speedring. It also seems that you could mount the softbox so that the fixture was inserted through the bottom, rather than the back and if you wanted further diffusion on say, a fresnel, you could turn the fresnel toward a reflector in the back of the softbox and spread the light some more.

I was really intrigued by this device, and since I have a set of Peppers, I thought two or three sizes without the need for multiple speedrings for each would give me some economical flexibility.

Unfortunately, I can't find the link that I had bookmarked. I'm sure that the company had a familiar name - not as familiar as Chimera or Westcott, but familiar. Anyone know what I'm referring to and have a link?
