For mounting my shoe flash to a soft box, when do I use the Basic square plastic connector & when do I use the Basic Metal OctoConnector?

The basic plastic connector only works with the 4 sided soft boxes. The metal OctoConnector has more holes and is necessary for the OctoDomes. The metal Octoconnector can also be used for the 4 sided boxes and is recommended for sizes larger than the medium or any HalfDome. The metal connector is more durable, but for the 4 sided soft boxes it requires that you use our new Adjustable shoe mount 2 with the 5/8 stud to mount the adjustable shoe mount to the ring.
