Cheetah Stand Exclusive!

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.

Designed specifically for the Godox AD-600B, AD600BM, AD600Pro and AD400Pro (also sold as the Cheetahstand CL-600X, Flashpoint XPLOR 600, XPLOR 600PRO and XPLOR400 Pro.  This mount will not fit on the Godox AD-B2 Dual Strobe Heads.  The Low Profile Bowens Mount may cause interference with other brands Bowen Mounts as the frame of the light will jam with the softbox flange.  Please make sure your strobes will work with this.

Measure Your Speed Ring: 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").

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.

Bowen Speed Ring for Buff Softbox

Installed easily; seems to hold the 47” Octabox securely on my Godox Wistro Ad400! Thank you!

Excellent service, and Product very happy, it fit my Paul C Buff softboxes Thanks


I ordered this product to convert the speed ring for my 47" octabox that I used with my old Alien Bees to be able to use it with my new Westcott FJ400 lights. It worked perfectly and I'm now able to use my octabox with my new lights and I don't have to go out and spend a bunch of money on new lighting modifiers. The shipping was also super fast!
