Mark and Rick,

Thanks a bunch for taking the time to respond so thoughtfully. I do agree the best "wrap" comes from getting the light as practically close to the subject as possible. My choice would be a large source through some level of diffusion on large frames, or bouncing light back through a light diffusion. However, this specific use is for those situations when I'm in a 10x10 office/closet. I'll stick with the Chimera because upon some research, without additional stands and accessories, it's look is somewhat softer than the Rifa. I was using a D-light but am switching to a tota. The other case against the Rifa is the absurd cost of the egg crate. I use that all the time on the Chimera and setting up stands to flag is not practical for this. By the way Mark, did you check out to see if you can get their egg crate cheaper for the Rifa?

Thanks again. You guys really helped me work this out.
