I'm using the Universal Cloud Lightsphere on both of my SB-900s.

Yes, I am also using the Universal Cloud. I know that Gary shows it as fitting easily to the SB 900 but it is not a good fit, especially when you compare to the fit on for example, the SB 800.

I really think that they need to make a bigger fitting for the SB 900 but maybe SB900 is the only larger flash unit around. But if the trend is for one manufacturer to follow another, I am sure that in time another manufacturer, say C***n may develop a larger unit and then maybe Gary will manufacture a lightsphere which will be a better fit.

I personnaly have that set-up and I found that the 'size 2" is the perfect fit for the SB900........

Per experience - Size 2 and Universal fit the SB900.
