Cactus on k3II?

HI,
I'm using some Cactus triggers on my K50. I'd like to buy a K3II but I'm not sure they can fit. That's because the K3II is taller on the top and I'm affraid my trigger can't be mounted.
Do you have any experience about that?

Sometimes a photo really is the best answer.

Go for the Cactus V6ii. It will give you HSS.

They have just as much headroom as a standard flash. Well-designed product! I'm sure they thought of it!

I'm still using my V4 on my cameras. Cactus flash triggers are really dependable.
