    I've never had haw strobes in any of my trucks, however I have ran 4 Whelen Vertex and was happy with them and they had very little flashback off things. I'm looking to put 6 clear strobe heads in my truck with a 90w power supply. Will the flashback from 4 clear strobes up front be to much?

    I have clears on my Chevy, and the flashback from just the two fronts off the blade was bad enough to keep me from using them much unless the blade was down. I can't speak to the flashback of LED HAW's, but I do really like the Vertex's and wouldn't mind getting a pair of them for my plow headgear.

    The led's didn't flash back hardly at all in my old truck, I havn't put them in my hd yet to see if their any different. I just didn't want to spend the money on strobes and then barelly use them.
