Temptations: Flash units, HSS, summer sale

I rarely post sales deals, unless I am seriously tempted to buy it myself :)
this is too good to pass up, I am currently using the Flashpoint FPLFSL360, pictured above, manual (non TTL) version, and it works producing serious flash power in HSS mode at reasonable shooting speeds without overheating, all the way up to 1/8000 on the A7rII (1/4000 on A6300). You will need the newly released Flashpoint R2 TTL 2.4G Wireless Transmitter For Sony Cameras to work with the Sony multi interface hot shoe. The beauty about this strobe – you aren’t limited to one camera brand, if you happen to shoot multiple systems, you can get additional triggers for Pentax, Canon, Nikon, Sony, M43 and Fuji and get high speed sync on all those cameras and remotely adjust power output down to 1/256. VERY IMPORTANT: To make this work you will need the newly released GODOX XTR16 2.4GHZ USB receiver (HSS will not work with the older 433Mhz receiver/transmitter bundled with the flash). The Flashpoint version of the XTR16 should be out soon, in the mean time you can find the Godox XTR16 USB receiver for a couple bucks here on eBay. Image below: Godox XTR16 USB receiver plugged into USB port, make sure you get the pictured USB version, there is also a non USB version available (rectangular)
One more thing: To get perfectly lit images at all shutter speeds, you need to turn e front curtain shutter off, otherwise you will see lines at higher shutter speeds and you need to put the unit in HSS mode by pressing the MODE and SET button simultaneously.
