    Well, 3 out of the 4 that were tested were sourced from China and they all had different measurements. So each company must be using different Optics from what I can tell.

    Yup, had to quit cold turkey for a while... :smokin:

    LSU,
    I think he was asking about different size lights within the brands. Each company will have their own optic design but I think the question was say a 20" Rigid vs 40" Rigid.

    Ah. Didn't think of that. Makes sense now. I don't think each company makes different optics from what i can tell. For example, Rigid hyperspot is the same no matter what light bar you get. Only difference is output.

    I would be interested to see how the E-series compares to the E2 and RDS. On paper looks like they are killer but would be interesting to see how much better they really are.

    Me, too! I don't recall seeing any E2 lights at TRR, but maybe I could get a chance to test some next year.

    Is the M&R bar really accurate? It puts out less light than KC cubes?

    I measured it the same way I measured all of the others. It is all tied to the optics.
