The two big problems I see are the 700$ price tag and the lenghth. Yeah you guys build great lights but you want to market to duck hunters and that price is a long ways off IMHO. Why the single row of led's 30" wide. double stacked you could fit the same emitters into a 15" bar that would be a lot more protected.
This is what I run on my airboat on the Colorado river delta. Total cost for this setup is about 350$ two 55 hid converted halogens. And a 20" bar, both from ddm tuning. So far bomb proof and at a fraction of the cost
thanks for the response.
There's many other factors to take in account. A 30" like Shawn is running on his boat is over kill for a boat.
We all know how the cost of chinese goods to high quality American goods are be it lights or many other types of products.
Also with high end lights like Baja Designs
because of the many unique features that Baja Designs
uses to build their bars our smaller bars will outshine larger competitors even double row. One small factor is Baja Designs
uses the highest quality latest technology Cree bulbs where as many competitors use a very old bulbs that were introduced in 2000-2005. More LEDs does not at all mean it will be brighter. Also lumens is a very innacurate measure for example take your standard 35w HID light, most common sizes 4", 6" and 8". The bulb itself puts out around 3200 lumens but we all know a 4" light puts out less light then a 6" light and a 8" even more. Whys that? Its because the optic or reflector design. This is a great affect with small/ shallow LED reflectors. Alot of light is lost.
I do agree the cost is higher on American Made lights, but they don't compare in overall brightness, distance, build quality and lifetime warranty. Baja Designs
has been in the lighting industry for over 20 years and always strives to offer customers the highest quality product and is very reasonably priced to other US made lights and lights similar in brightness and will often save the customer money going with smaller high quality bars and still outshining the competition.
Ill post a night photo to show the difference between a double row competitors bar and our new OnX LED light bar.
Let me know if you have any other questions
Sorry about the long post
