The interior of the softbox is lined with a specially engineered pebbled silver material, a Cheetah Stand exclusive. Smooth silver material can produce significant hot spots in the light output making it difficult to use the box without a diffuser. The unique design of the pebbling in our softbox diffuses the light, resulting in more consistent light while maintaining maximum output. This is especially important when shooting in bright sun when you need to get the most power from your lights.
The exterior is a tough, flexible material that is tear-resistant and water-resistant. It comes equipped with 1 layer of diffusion that can all be easily cleaned - especially important if you are going to take it on adventures! Combined with the best grid in the market measuring at 4cm x 4cm x 4cm, you will have extreme control of your light spread.
Speed Ring Selection:
The Cheetah MAX-20 comes with 6 options for speed rings: Make sure you choose the correct speed ring for your light.
Bowen: Fits lights and accessories fitted with a Bowen S-Mount and Godox AD-B2 (Not the same as a Low Profile Bowens - see below)
Low Profile Bowen: This insert is designed specifically for the Godox AD-600B, AD600BM, AD600Pro and AD400Pro (also sold as the Cheetah CL-600X, Flashpoint XPLOR 600 HSS, XPLOR 600 HSS TLL, XPLOR 600Pro, XPLOR 400 Pro). Important: Do not order this mount for the Godox AD-B2 Dual Flash Adapter for the AD200, it will not fit. For the AD-B2, select the standard Bowen mount. It is not recommended for other Bowen mount lights because the low-profile design may cause the flange on the insert to contact the frame of the light before it is fully installed into the light. It could become jammed.
Einstein, AB, Balcar: Fit lights and accessories with a Balcar mount, which includes all lights produced by Paul C. Buff, Inc.
Elinchrom: Fit lights and accessories with an Elinchrom-style mount.
Photogenics: Fit lights and accessories with a Photogenics-style mount.
Profoto Screw Type: Fits lights and accessories with a Profoto-style mount. This insert has a thumbscrew that is used to tighten the insert around the light.
The 4 thumbscrew design makes it easy to change speedring inserts to your needs quickly and without tools.

I've purchased multiple quick soft boxes from from Cheetah stand over the years and I continue to love them. The max 20 is no exception. Lightweight, very well-built and ready to use in seconds.
IÃ¢â¬â¢ll start with the build quality which is exactly what IÃ¢â¬â¢ve come to expect from Cheetahstand. Every product IÃ¢â¬â¢ve purchased from them has been superior to any other brand I own.
IÃ¢â¬â¢ve used the Max20 twice so far and was surprised at how versatile it is. IÃ¢â¬â¢ve used it as a closeup beauty dish and a backlight for headshots. Lightweight and travels easy. IÃ¢â¬â¢m sure it will be a staple in my gear.
Great Cheetastand quality .
Beautiful light output.
I love the MAX20! Price: great value for the dollar! Setup: easy! Sturdiness: like a rock! Light quality: outstanding!
The MAX20 is quickly becoming one of my favorite light modifiers.
