alternatives to White Lightning 7" reflectors?

->> I seem to have misplaced my 7" reflectors for my White Lightning strobes. White Lightning charges $30 for each. Are there any cheaper alternatives (e.g generic brands that also fit) than buying them new? I haven't found anyone selling used ones.

You might look for used hoods. Try lensandrepro in New York. I bought used Balcar/White Lightning speedrings from them about two months ago. Maybe they have some used Balcar hoods. Balcar and White Lightning have the same mount. FYI, you will have to drill a hole in a Balcar hood if you intend to use an umbrella.

->> Cardboard, tin-foil and duct-tape. $30 isn't that bad for reflectors...

->> I remember looking through Adorama's site for reflectors 'cause I thought $30 was too much. Turns out that $30 is about the norm for a standard 80 degree reflector ... if you can find one that says it will fit your WL or AB.
