    Should I get it. $58.90 for the tx and 2 rx. I figure since Im going to have 2 flashes I can use these when I dont want a mounted flash. Should I wait for those other ones, i forget the name but they were Jr something. The one everyones been raving about.

    Oh if I get the cactus' I would need to do that antenna and battery mod which is an additional 30 or so. :greddy:

    minus well get the cactus ones now

    the radio popper jr's look like they are going to be awesome, but I don't think you'll miss your $60 if you buy the cactus triggers now, and then get the jr's when they come out

    I was looking at these and thinking about them too. Do you guys know if they're safe to use with studio strobes?

    I have the cactus triggers.... no mods.

    They work awesome. The only complaint I have is that they 'fall asleep' pretty quickly... So I end up test firing the strobe pretty often to make sure everythings awake.

    do the battery mod. Instead of the cr123a battery use 2 AA batteries.

    What are the advantages of the JRs over these?

    Well them not being released yet no one know if they'll suck or not, but the assumption is range, reliability, AAs, design and some sort of ttl iirc.
