    I am looking to purchase a couple of holders for my SB800's so I can place them on lightstands, I need the umbrella attachement as well, I have some cheapo ebay ones (I neve learn) but they are too flimsy and I don't trust them with my speedlights.

    Any recommendations?

    I've purchased several from this site. Great service...nice adapter:

    It's the same adapter B&H sells. I've bought this one from B&H too in the past. No difference between the two. Flashzebra ships faster.

    The above are plastic. The Bogen is aluminum if you need pro sturdy:

    The 1st umbrella adapter I bought was the Photoflex one but after a week of use it could not hold the umbrella anymore so I exchanged for the Bogen one and man was I glad..... The Bogen built is so solid and it holds the umbrella pretty well with no problem.

    My suggestion, go for the Bogen one. its a little bit more expensive but its worth it....
