What I was most impressed with is how they packaged the tube from the factory. I had to destroy the styrofoam to get the bulb out, it was that well secured in the foam. As fragile as flashtube can be, they way this was packaged I would have no concerns with having this shipped.
Don’t anticipate needing to use this anytime soon but I definitely feel better knowing I have a spare in my kit
The flash tube comes very packaged, maybe too well. No complaints, everything was well done. I actually wish the packaging was not as padded so the box was smaller and fit more easily in my lighting kit bag.
