    I bought the small one to play with, I had to mod the shaft to fit my elinchroms, but I love it.... insanely efficient... He's coming out with a V2 in a few months that has the 7mm shaft to fit the elinchroms, so I might pick up the 86" then.

    Thing is huge! Oh, noticed a typo on your blog...It’s an 86″ Parabolic Light Modifier from Paul Cl Buff (www.paulcbuff.com)

    yep, the flash tube is supposed to be bare so that it'll fill up the PLM,

    using the 7" reflector basically just makes it a normal umbrella

    Yeah, weights won't do a thing for this I dont think if it's windy at all. Need someone to actually hold it.

    A friend of mine actually had it. He picked it up from a liquidation somewhere in florida. Told me he had it. Picked it up for $50 bucks shipped.

    if you remove the reflector, wont the light just go everywhere?
    or do you have to move the umbrella closer?

    You're going to want to line the edges of the PLM to the edge of your light... you'll get a little bit of spill out of the PLM, but AB makes a "spill kill reflector" just for that.
