    Check the batteries on the 580. I notice that the reliability falls drastically with the juice on the flash.

    Interesting. Those batts are probably close to dead but it was flashing fine when i hit the pilot button? You are saying that it affects the triggers though?

    I need some rechargable batts

    did you try the flash with the other triggers too? other flashes with the misfiring trigger? if the batteries are low in the trigger, that can cause misfires.

    Then it's definitely the batteries in the flash. A known problem with the cactus trigger -- if the batteries are low in either the flash or the trigger, you're going to have more than normal misfires.

    Did you order the right ones. They are different version for the 580
