Elinchrom gear

I hate to do this, but I have to sell my lighting gear. I purchased this gear in November 2009 and have used it on average of a couple gigs a month since. It’s in excellent, A+ top notch shape. This is what I have:

1 Elinchrom Ranger RX AS 1100 w/s portable power pack
1 Elinchrom Ranger Free Lite “A” head (short flash duration – “A” is for “action”)
1 Elinchrom Ranger Free Lite “S” head (normal flash duration)
1 Elinchrom standard reflector, 60 degree
1 Elinchrom 13’ Free Lite extension cable
1 Elinchrom Carry case for two heads
1 set of 7" honeycomb grids (10 deg, 20 deg, 30 deg, 40 deg)
1 Creative Light speed ring
1 generic speed ring for soft boxes
1 Creative Light 5’ Octa Soft Box

B&H is selling everything listed above except for the generic speed ring and the Elinchrom case for $3330.24. The generic speed ring was $40 from Penn Camera and the case was $62.00 from Adorama. So, all said and done, I paid over $3400 for this rig. It is awesome. The quality of light is amazing. You can run two heads at once, and when you do it’s asymmetrical with a 2:1 ratio. Or you can overpower the sun and run one head at 1100 w/s. The battery lasts forever. I’ve had to charge it twice since I’ve owned it, no joke. The 5’ Octa is sweet. If you want to see a video of Jensen Walker demoing it, go here: http://creativelight.com/content/softbox-rf-octa

This is a dream rig, and unfortunately I’m in a crunch (literally, my car…) and it has to go. I think $2700 is more than fair for everything here.
