Yeah John, that was awesome stuff, especially the sunlight head. I still have an ad from Helix touting the greatness of that sun head.
I still have two QC1000 packs that are like new and four of their striplights which are nice units. Just excellent, simple strobe gear. I use pigtails to also use heads from my Speedo gear with the Ascor packs when needed, that works great as well. To this day good Ascor gear still does a great job. Obviously it has limitations but it performs well. Just as good as my Speedo Black line stuff.
I worked for the Helix when they were still renting that stuff. One day we had a bunch of caps to be tested and someone decided to find out what happened with 'em all hooked up. 96k WS through the sunlight. Made a lot of light.
