Cactus flash and triggers

If I understood correctly the TT600 has the receiver included as well. TT600 + godox x1c costs not more than 90 pounds, more or less the price of a cactus v6ii and 60 pound less than a cactus flash. I am not saying I am going to buy it, but if one uses the cactus because of the HSS feature, this could be taken in consideration, until the cactus actually releases the automatic metering firmware. The only drawback is the bulkiness and the complexity of the setup.

Sure, there's an initial saving. .... But you do feel the future TTL option is important, so I'd personally prefer to pay the extra up front and get the gear that is going to serve me in the longer term.

The Cactus only system is the neater option ....trigger stacking is always going to introduce more variables, more settings to manage, more potential communication failure issues etc. With the Cactus you'll be controlling both power and flash head zoom from the V6II on camera and just dealing with the one device.

The future TTL upgrade, for free, will easily he worth the extra expense, more like a bonus really, plus you have the advantage that you're already used to the interface and working with the system.

It's your decision, but I'm just laying out how my own thinking process would be.
