    Thats very cool. Seems like they are very reasonably priced as well, may have to look into the 16 incher.

    I'll be interested to see one in action. The price seems to be a good deal.

    I only had a sample in my hands for 20 minutes and very nice lights, just not enough time to shot a video plus it was raining. completely redesigned modules in this bar, really bright, and very solidly built. they have a winer here!! Louis

    They look like tir6 modules, is that what they are? Or are you saying those are what they redesigned? I too would like to see one in action!

    I am surprised how reasonably priced they are, I noticed on strobes and more that it says amber dome... clear does it justice, IMO

    They use the same optics but are a brand new module just for this bar as it the corner module. I personally think they hit it out the park on this one.

    Can anyone clarify if the outer lens is amber or clear?

    Louis- Do you have all sizes available? I am anxious to see a video.

    Outer lenses will be in all amber to start. They had mentioned clear being available but I think they are going to push all amber dome and amber LEDs out first then slowly add the clear dome and then possibly other colors. Sounds like other colors will be a ways down the line.

    Especially in the sunlight?!?! They probably shoulda done a better job of making that look better!
