    im not sure if the 285's are enough juice for me. so im thinking about getting a different flash head. are there any other flash heads that offer more power, but in the same price bracket (upto lets say 150 a piece)

    What are you trying to light? The Vivitars are some bad maama-jaamas on full power.

    I did a mountain bike race with a few Vivitars this summer and had plenty of light. You could light nearly anything with 3 off camera 285s.

    I'm pretty sure the Vivitar is going to be the best light for that price
