message Hi Larry,

The 160 worked great! Easy to use on the Ikelite arm that came with the package (you probably already have experience in that area...), but this is my first strobe and arm. The strobe was always ready to shoot (I think the recharge is something less than 1.5 seconds - unless you've done a full dump) and it is super easy to check the charge level during a dive. Coverage was good too - I used a 28 mm and a 17-40 mm and the 160 covered the scene(s) just fine as long as I was close enough. Lastly, the modeling light probably could be used as a night dive light - it certainly worked great for a short (very short) cave dive to shoot sea turtles in!

Anyway, I'm thrilled with it. Best of luck in the Philippines!
