I have a 24x24 kit (as they measured it, then). Use a Nikon SB900 & FlexTT5. I find that the "lollipop" length an issue. (it is a model that supports the SB900 speedlite. In emails to & from Lastolite UK & on there website in a specifications area there is a listing of a "lollipop" (153 cm IIRC) for use w/PocketWizard (FlexTT5 not mentioned specifically) . But, no picture comparison between this and (what they call "standard"). BUT, I'm also interested in the new "Strobo" kit for Ezybox. I'd like, and hope they've made the length longer for ALL of their product.

Most Canon flashes (including the 580EX II) generate RF interference which affects the performance of the FlexTT5.
Pocket Wizard's fix for this is a "sock" (AC5) to shield the flash. Unfortunately, this requires a 1" hotshoe extender between the FlexTT5 and the flash unit which raises the flash head higher than the Lastolite bracket can adjust to.
So far, I've only found do-it-yourself fixes which involve changing the length of the bracket. Another possibility is replacing the entire bracket assembly with another one but that is more $$$.
I've tried using the FlexTT5 without the AC5 sock and found the reliability to be erratic with the flashes only 25 ft away.

I hate to disagree with Mark since I have learned so much from these vids on the learning center but... I have a Flex TT5 and a Canon 580EX II and was able to set it up on my Lastolite Ezybox. It takes some creativity but works great...I will post photos on the review section of the Lastolite Ezybox.

I have a question on this. I'm still very new with photography, and I don't have a Speedlite 580 or anything like that yet. But in the video, while someone was holding the Lastolite Ezybox, and the photographer was taking pictures, I noticed that there wasn't a cord connecting the camera to the flash. You mentioned that the flash doesn't fit a pocket wizard, so what did you use for a wire free setup like that which is in the video?
