You haven't given any setup information, as in what locations you are shooting in where CLS failed. So far the only place it has failed me was shooting in a mall with a large open space. Line of sight was needed to make it work and I had to position my flashes (3) so they could see the commander. Sometimes the umbrella I was using blocked the sensor port on one of my speedlights.
PW is nice and I hope to have a good setup with them, but for now it's too expensive. Yes, the AC-3 is cheap, but at $200 per flash for the mini TTs, plus one for the camera, it gets pricey really quick. I suppose I could build up slowly, getting one at a time. But for now I don't need them in my small studio. CLS works very well for me and I like the control my SU-800 gives me.
