I've adapted a Bowen's S-Type mount but putting a thread in one of the spoke holes that will accept a large tripod stud. A flash can be mounted using a clamp.

    It's all sex, sex, sex with you isn't it. Studs, holes, mounting. It just never stops. Take a cold shower mate.

    The adapter looks good though.

    A more elegant solution I have yet to see. Bit sceptical about using trad studio systems with small strobes but the video put my mind at rest; even I could have a go at that. Is that a normal Justin clamp you use to attach the strobe through the ring?

    The clamp is from Maplins. I dare say a justin clamp or superclamp would work. ISTR David Hobby used ball bungees.
