I've used Bowens themselves in the past and was very happy. Mainly because then (maybe 5 years ago), I was able to talk to the actual tecnician who was in the repair department

I also recall it was sent back as i requested, rather than by a courier

You can still talk to a technician, but they do not stock spares for old models unless they still happen to have it on the shelf.

You did some of the old ones for me one time David and the knackered ones you had for spares ;-)

No spares for Monogold, tell me about it.
