    I recently got another YS-D1 to round out my kit. The first one I got included a ball mount as shown on the left strobe. I prefer this as it is less bulky and shortens the length of the light from top to ball clamp. The new one I got is setup with a combination of the YS mount and a YS to ball adapter. I'd like to replace this to match the one on the left, but cant seem to find one anywhere. It seems they may only be available as a part of a new strobe purchase as it is included in new strobe purchase items list. The closest I can find is and adapter like this but seems to be geared toward a tray handle and the dimension look different.

    does anyone know the part number of the adapter that comes with a new strobe kit, or does anyone want to part with one that is not being used?

    I don't believe they are sold separately, we've tried to find this part before.

    Well that sucks. Thanks for that info though. Off to find a different solution.

    Get one of their ball mounts for their strobe arms or the one from beneath the sea and bolt it to the strobe.

    alternatively get one of your local grad students to 3D print you one. Put in a helicoil to mount the ball and you will be good to go.
