    I was gonna say don't waste your money and when for that price you can get the same setup with Whelen products and a strobesn'more plug and play switch panel.....but oops I guess its too late seeing as you posted, after you ordered it. :rolleyes:

    The strobe tubes in that kit are very low quality, the plastic bases are inferior, and the tube itself is shorter than usual, so you won't have as much bulb in the actual housing to reflect and produce light.

    Oh well. :rolleyes:

    Well then fair enough. Not a bad deal then, but keep an eye on those bases.

    Any idea if a Whelen bulb will work with the RECON wiring?

    Most likely, just make sure the wires are in the same order in the plug. Red-Black-White

    That is an AXIXTECH strobe supply in that kit. Been around for years. Very good quality if they are using AXIXTECH strobe tubes. There is a good chance that they may not be. The control switch is also AXIXTECH and has been around for a long time. RECON is far from an industry first.
