    I've recently gotten my first 240 after years of Ike strobes and am happy to have made the switch.

    Been using the Z240’s pretty much exclusively for about 5 years now. Just had my first one fail for reasons other than my own stupidity. I use a pair for macro and wide angle for most lenses up to and including the Nikon 18mm. I add a third or forth when I use 180 degree fisheye lenses. They are among the most reliable, robust, and effective tools that I’ve ever owned.

    Reef Photo in Fort Lauderdale, Florida is a dealer, and they do repairs in house.

    I had the YS-250pro a year ago, it was very bulky, the sync cord sometimes doesn't work with the TTL connector, it misfired several times missing my shots, and I just sold it and never looked back.

    I have used the Ikelite DS strobes for years and have just recently bought two Z-240 Inons. While the ikelites never missed a beat it is really easy to fall in love with the Z-240's. My only niggle was the smaller knobs and using them with thicker gloves made things a little tricky. So when I too saw this post I just bought a few from Backscatter!!! job done!


    Enjoy them.

I'm also curious if there have been any issues with repairs for US owners since Inon america closed it's doors, where do you get them serviced now? I have sea and sea ys 250 strobes and am happy with them but am wondering if I shouldn't consider the Inons instead while the 250's are still essentially brand new and resalable since the Inons are rated for the depths I am beginning to dive.

    I have 3 Inons but would not recommend them to anyone, they are heavy in Saltwater, had issue with Oring stretch, which Pinch on the battery compartment, and controls are made for midget fingers. This is a major issue as you change batteries each day. I also have a Sea &Sea strobe which is a far better system.

    I've been using both my Inon Z-240s for the last 5+ years, and I do re-charge the batteries before each dive - My replacement o-rings are still in my spare parts kit, because the original o-rings are still in perfect condition.
