Just out of curiousity, would you recommend PW over Odin. I only ask because I seriously haven't heard one bad thing about odin, but, have heard many complaints with PW's....
Despite my perceived bias against Pocket Wizard, I've used both and I'm not an evangelist for either.
Pocket Wizards are incredibly popular amongst the pros. They're pretty much a standard so you'll see a ton of people using them. When a lot of people use something there's more chance of a negative comment here and there just based on sheer volume. For example, if 1% of compnay Y's triggers are bad and they have 36 million users, then you have 360,000 complaints. If you have 10% of company X's triggers go bad and there's only 100 people using them then you only have 10 complaints even though you are ten times more likely to have a bad one with company X. I'm not saying that is anything close to the failure rate of any brand, just the reality of having a metric craptonne of users out there with internet access. The flipside to this is also that you have a ton of people troubleshooting them and a ton of options to buy or sell them within that ton of users. You can pick them up at most decent camera stores, which means that you can always buy another unit or a replacement without waiting for shipping. PW also tends to be backward compatible so that the ones you buy today should still work with the ones from ten years ago and hopefully with the ones made ten years from now.
My own experience with PW has been that with the PlusII's I could really push the range on a good day and still get consistent performance, but then blow shot after shot at half the distance. That doesn't mean that they were crap, just that the conditions at that time weren't favorable and I couldn't tweak them to work. I haven't had the Odins for long enough to vouch for them in the same conditions, but so far so good. Another benefit of using PW is that everyone else does too, so you can always borrow or rent in a pinch.
Pocket Wizards are good, and I'd say better than most, but like everything they're not perfect. The reason I bought Odins this time was for the convenience of being able to dial in settings remotely and have reliable HSS. If I didn't need HSS or have to make lots of adjustments to hard to reach strobes, I would have bought more Pocket Wizards. As it was I just didn't like the PW flex system so I figured I'd take a chance on the Odins. YMMV.
