I have received the Calumet Genesis strobe kit I talked about. Because it's so much more reasonably priced than most studio gear, I'd half expected that for example the stand would be crap quality, like a cheap microphone stand. But it's really not, it's solid quality, and even air dampened so the strobe does not drop like a bomb if you loosen a wingnut too suddenly. Great stuff.
I have to admit, I'm a quality-gear fetichist.
