These strobes are brand new, never been used, I took them out for taking picture of them and I had to power test them to make sure they work 100%, after testing I am stoked with the quality of these babies.
They are made in China, but what isn’t these days? They are retailed mainly in… of course China, Indonesia and Japan and very well known in South East Asia region, so not just some cheap random eBay items, why spend big dollars on Bowens or any expensive brands when you can have something on par for a fraction of the cost? These strobes really give the big guns a run for their money.

(1) One of the reflector hood has a flat spot as shown in the photos due to rough handling when shipped to me, but this can be fixed easily as the hood is made of light metal (may be aluminium), no marks, scratches or whatsoever, but I’ll let the buyer to fix this. I will repack them to ensure this will not happen if shipping is required.
(2) On one of the FT-600D, the clear light dome on the back panel has a hair line crack (see photo below), this is purely cosmetic however, most people I shown it to didn’t think it matters, but I’m a picky bastard, and I’m sure some of you the same, so I make a point here.
(3) These strobes were imported from oversea, so you will need an Australian power adaptor for each, and they are rated at 240v Australian standard. Adaptor like this can be found at local electronic shop for cheap: http://jaycar.com.au/productView.asp?ID=PP4020&keywords=travel+adaptor&form=KEYWORD
These strobes are absolutely awesome, excellent for shooting portrait, catalogue pictures… actually I’ll let you imagine the use of these lights, they produce very natural and well disperse lighting on the subject, may be I should let the pictures do the talking. From pic. 1 to 14 are taken using one of the strobe, pictures are straight off the camera with no re-touching (except I cropped a few of them), pic. 15 to 20 are taken using the in-built camera flash:

16. Now the family shot, gotta hand over the lighting job to the in-built camera flash. You know there’s always a time you take pictures of your family at some place, when it is your turn to be in the family picture you would ask some stranger to take that for you and that photo is always the worst one out of the lot, this would be it:
