    Im interested in that same led beacon ... I couldnt find anyone that uses it and wanted to hear some opinions first. I have the code 3 quad flash led beacon with the clear lens its bright at night but im not impressed with it during the daytime.

    I have three mini phantom's and they have good coverage even in the day to me.they were the primary on one of my vehicles while my primary rig was in the shop. moved traffic just fine. I know use then as secondary and lower priority lighting.

    I like the concept of the LED beacons, but I have yet to see one in person that really has the reach out and slap you kind of effect. I think they are too directional maybe? Maybe they need to design one that has the diodes point in all kinds of angles and directions.

    Thanks for the videos though, it always good to have people go out and spend THEIR money so we can all see whats out there. :D

    I have never been impressed with any light that used 5mm LEDs with no spreader optics whatsoever. Extremely unimpressed with the mini phantom.
