“There are three major benefits to the Sunbounce system for me . . . 1. The stretch fabric creates a reliable lighting pattern and can throw light across a long distance if needed. 2. The quality of light they produce is amazing! 3. They’re very durable and will last you a very long time. I own the Micro Mini (2×3) the Mini (3×4), the Pro 4×6 and the Big Sun Swatter. Just bought the 3-D Raindrop 4×6 fabric and love the punch it produces especially on cloudy days! Bottom line . . . It’s more expensive but WELL worth the price!”Eric Stoner
