Where is the best place to get Tota lights and Matthews 20 x20 grifs in UK? or is it maybe better to order over web from US - since the US$ is so weak at the moment

Any ideas?

I have looked at prolight and some others...

thanks

Tony - you should try Lowel's Rifa lights. They're the best thing since sliced bread.

Dear Adam

for a softlight do you prefer the Rifa 88 or the octodome by dedo - The breise is great but I would only ever rent from Mike at Sola - no point buying something that expensive

thanks
