My Minolta Spotmeter F does reflected flash, and so does my Gossen Starlite 2. The Minolta is dated, the Gossen is brand new. My Pentax Digital Spotmeter does not read flash, but it's my favorite for the Zone System. My Gossen Gossen Lunastar F2 does, but it's not a spotmeter, however, it's my favorite in the Studio.

I suggest to go to a local camera dealer or camera club and look at a few meter. As others have said, people recommend what they use, but that also means that all brand name meters are good. It comes down to convenience and the way you like to work.
