I just ordered a new softbox today, because the one I have will only work on an Alien Bee, and I need something to use with my Novatron lights for an upcoming job. I was concerned with the weight since lightboxes can be pretty heavy and the Novatron heads don't have a huge mount. I found that Photoflex makes a series of speedrings that work with just about any brand heads. The one for Novatron (and other similar heads) actually mounts to the light stand so that the bulk of the weight from the softbox is going into the stand, and not into the head. Here is what I ordered...
