    It's pretty new. There is the DIY snoot system for speedlights using black straws. Strobist has some articles on fitting a snoot and a grid to a speedlight flash. Honl has their Speed Grid setup for about $29.95, or roughly half of the price of the Fong system. The Fong videos are not very good sales tools--those sample photos just don't make the light coming out of that thing look all that compelling to me.

    Black craft paper celotaped into a cone - fits all of my SB's, my vivitars and my metz's. Cost pennies. Size of the light is very easily modified.;)

    To get really fancy, use black craft foam held into shape with tiny rare earth magnets.

    That's sounds like the kind of product name that should have a a body builder or a WWF wrestler on tv selling it and yelling the whole time.
