Speedotrons aren't that bad. I've assisted shoots with the Brown line and Black line Speedotrons. They're bluish compared to Broncolors.

The worst are Normans. They're just plain dangerous. I've seen their packs blow up and arched some plugs. I'm lucky while assisting photogs using them that I didn't shart my pants.
