    I've put some work into exploring the frame coverage by various flash diffusers and reflectors. I picked 22 images for the review (some diffusers are in more than one configuration).

    Hope this is helpful: Flash Diffuser frame coverage test

    That wide spread is just one of the reasons I freaking love the Vertex. ^.^ (You can get more vertical spread by turning the panels up a bit more.)

    You gotta be careful with the angle though. I figured that if you start changing the angle to get more vertical coverage, then you lose the width (in the "wide spread" configuration only).

    Did you happen to test the same setup with a stofen omnibounce pointed at the ceiling?

    Ah yes, but hey, I'd much rather have the extra flexibility.
