I would like to point out my personal experience in this issue.
I have been using Radiopoppers for over a year now without issue ( both JRx and PX systems ) , they have never damaged my flashes and my flashes had never had any functionality issues... until recently.
A friend bought into the new Pocketwizard flex system. We tried using it while he was assisting me at a wedding. For the first hour it was fine... and then, my 580EX II started going haywire and doing full power dumps everywhere I went. I eventually had to give up and resort to borrowing a flash from another friend and finishing the day with my Radiopoppers. My flash was pooched, had to send it in to CPS to get it repaired. $130 with my discount.
A week later, my friend was playing around with them more, and had been in conversation with pocketwizard to work out the interference issues and get the PW "socks" sent to him. He got the socks, and after 2 days of use, his 580 EX I flash blew up and started doing the same thing. He bought a new 580 EXII, and within 2 weeks of purchase, it also "blew up" and would only do full power dumps, even when not connected to the pocketwizards. Canon replaced this flash as a manufacturers defect under the warranty.
When my friend contacted Pocketwizard about his concerns about breaking the flashes, who up to this point had been very responsive to his emails regarding interference and the "socks", they suddenly stopped responding. He has not heard a response since.
We subsequently stopped using the pocketwizards, and I have gone 100% radiopopper JRx. They have given me ZERO flash issues and 100% firing reliability. My Radiopopper PX system, which like the pocketwizards gives E-TTL wireless capability, was bulletproof, and also did not damage the flashes, but I found I was shooting on manual all the time anyways and didn't need the more expensive system, so I sold it.
I am 100% convinced based on my own personal experience with THREE 580EX flashes ( 1 580 EX I, 2 580 EXII ) that the pocketwizards are the issue and that they are not taking responsibility for this situation. I will never deal with them again. Radiopopper has not only been completely reliable, but very communicative and helpful, I would encourage all of you to look in their direction when it comes to Radio based flash triggers.
