    I haven't found a namebrand yet that has the side/corner angles covered like the mini Verve appears to (without spending BIG bucks). It's also GEN 3 leds. I certainly appreciate the suggestions though. That's exactly what I'm looking for. The more options and opinions I have to make an educated decision, the better!!

    Thanks a bunch!!

    Nope never used this bar; but I can tell you that Whelen makes a very good product that is known to last, and last for years. One you may want to consider is their Mini Liberty with the 4 Linear LED lights. Great light, day or night... -Or their Justice mini. For me the Whelen Mini Liberty with the four corner Linear LEDs work great, best light I've ever owned, very good 360 visibility. JMO! -Good luck in your search. ussmileyflag

    Do more digging. That company is a holding company of at least two others - all owned by the same person. That light is imported from china after his original lights got him into trouble with code3. I had made a purchase from them and even though they told me they were in stock ..... it was actaully dropped shipped from china, then to an importer, then an assembler ... all about 14 weeks from order to delivery and still they got the order wrong.

    One of the traffic cars at the sheriffs office has the full size lightbar. I must say it is bright at night but you put it in the direct sunlight and your screwed. The flash patterns suck too. I would spend the money on a Whelen or Federal Signal product.

    For that $ you can get like the other guys have said... A SoundOff..., Whelen or a Federal and have a longer lasting bar that you can get repairs done on it if needed. That bar your looking at isn't worth that much. 2 year warrentee..Right it will be gone for 2 years with them trying to figure out the problem then your SOL.

    Get a trusted name/model. You'll be alot happier. IMO!

    Personally, I wouldnt buy any of that knock off junk. I am not going to put knock off strobes on $30,000-$40,000 trucks. Whelen is the only name in my book.
