'You get a lot of strobe for your money, and in terms of overall performance for a wide-angle flash, the KS160 holds up very well against much more expensive competition' - Matthew Sullivan - Dive Photo Guide


'The Kraken KS-160 strobe is certainly an absolute powerhouse of a strobe. Its wide-angle capabilities, ample power output and very impressive battery life make it one of the best—and most competitively priced—higher-end strobes on the market.' - Sam Glenn-Smith - Dive Photo Guide
