I have a job coming up where we are looking to use Flash packs and timed strobes going off in-frame while shooting at frame rates between 500-1000fps. I am wondering if anyone out there has any advise for what strobes/flask packs to use for this. If flickering can be an issue? Any advise on the matter would be greatly appreciated!

What sort of frequency are you looking to fire the flashes at? if 9-11 times / second is good enough, the simplest solution I could think of would be to use speedlights at low power setting. I have photographed skateboarding sequences in this way, and you can get 9 fps at 1/32 power with Nikon SB 28 flashes (and certainly with the sb 800 and 900). Hook the flashes up to pocketwizards and use a camera capable of that fps with another pocketwizard to trigger the flashes.
You need to provide more specifics about the effect you're looking to get.
