    I'm male Jack.
    And the "eye" photo is not mine either.
    And yes, its a female's eye. Didn't know you can guess the gender of a person thru its eyes. You must be a CSI or something............... LOLs

    You're welcome, Helene. So you've noticed the bleeding of the lights, too, on the Honl grid. That was considered also when I thought on how to make a flash mount on the honeycombs/grids. And I did say to prefer black closed cell foam instead of other colors. My next project will be making more gobo's and snoots. I also have the Honl gobo's and snoots as my templates. Now, if only I know how to use a sewing machine. LOLs

    I saw a tutorial where David Ziser made a snoot by attaching a thin magazine to the flash --he did have to take the cover off and wrap it around the "bare bulb" . My problem with the Honl snoot is that it's difficult to manage -- sometimes I want more of a "funnel", and maybe a little more feathering?? I guess I don't want much. lol

    LOL...thanks, Ranie....just wanted to make sure. And yes, I knew it was a female eye. That's why I asked.

    The thickness of the honeycomb controls the angle of the light output. The thicker the grid, the narrower the light and vice versa as seen/explained (in degrees) on the picture attached.

    I was thinking of giving this a go using a Pringles tube as a combo "funnel and grid holder" as they are silvered inside and from experience using them as a rough and ready snoot slip over a speedlight head really easily.
