Mounting my litedome on a Jinbei strobe

I own a Medium Lite Dome , and would like to connect it to a Bowen type strobe.
I have seen two connectors reference for this purpose, the 8017TR ( that I haven’t found on the web site) and the 9017TR.
What is the difference between those two references ? I can buy one or another without consequence with my lite dome softbox ?

  Thank you for this interesting forum

The 9017 series connector is an OctoConnector, which replaces the earlier 8017 series which could only work with rectangular softboxes. The 9017 OctoConnector works for all the Photoflex softboxes. The rectangular softboxes use every other hole of the connector. The 8017 series is not in manufacture any more.
