look for a used Iron Z240. You can find them for around $350 a piece for used and would be your best option. I've read great reviews about them. I've got Ikelite strobes now and they work just fie but are bigger and bulkier than a Z240. Do not get Sea and Sea, they have had many issues with strobes and I've had one flood the main part of the housing and it took them several months after returning it to tell me there was nothing they could do and it happened 2 months after my warranty expired so they wouldn't replace it. So unless you want to spend a bunch of money on a piece of garbage in my opinion, stay away from Sea & Sea and go for a used Z240.
