I managed to lose the UCLS standard clamp I had attached to my focus light - fortunately I grabbed the light before it too went to the depths...
(Let me know if you find the clamp - it's probably near the deep end of "Sand Chute" just south of the Kittiwake.)

Now I'm looking to replace the clamp, and there seem to be several options:
- Standard UCLS clamp [AC-CS] (therefore interchangeable with the other clamps I have)
- Long Clamp [AC-CSL]
- Slightly longer for the buoyancy arms segments [AC-CSB]

Does anyone have any "real world" experience with the longer clamps?
Are they worth the extra $10 USD?
Or are they too bulky/ difficult to use/ etc?

Thanks in advance.

I have the long clamp, I needed an additional clamp and used the opportunity to get the longer clamp.
If the question is, is it really a necessity? the answer is no.
is it too bulky? I don't think so.

I like the longer clamp better over the regular clamp because when I fold my focus light (Sola 600) to the back of the housing I like the way the light rest in the housing. But is just a personal thing.
