Here's a link for the Chinese Para FB knock-off:http://bbosasi.com/shop/goods/goods_view.p...category=006002
It's available through the Konova store on ebay. I had to email them, as they don't have it listed in their ebay store. They are based in Seoul, I believe.
I went ahead and ordered the 220cm model at about $1k US delivered. There's also a 180cm model that is slightly cheaper.
Less than a week later, a huge oblong box, over 2m long, arrived.
It's a very nice light for the price, and comes complete with the rolling stand, 5kg counter weight, and an empty sandbag. It is not as adjustable as the Bron -- the head can be extended out about a meter from its set position at the outer edge of the umbrella. The umbrella has one fixed open position (as seen in the pictures) and can also be closed a bit by sliding the central tube forward.
I've only used it for a couple shoots now, and need to experiment more. The light is very nice though -- punchy, constrasty, very flattering skin.
