Thanks for your reply.
First of all, I guess you will probably agree with me if I say Broncolor Paras are generally not a cheap equipment - in means of build quality and their price tag. And that's probably what makes them one of the most sought after light modifiers.
The price - £2,800 - is including tax. That would be approx. £2240 before tax, which if you compare to £3400 of new in Your Homeland will give you over 30% off price for literally almost-new umbrella. And so, I recon that's a very good deal!
I wouldn't give up on this Light...
Why don't you just PM me and make me an offer.
I hope it helps.
