    I have 2 of these and they work great! I was going to get teh able 2 that is the next step up, about 400 as opposed to 220, until I saw them side by side. They look good and work great both at night and day.

    mike...so the real question is would you buy any low profile light that was covered up buy a little snow?

    groundbreakers, I tend to disagree I can shoot a vid of mine 360 deg if someone can tell me how to post it I have no problems. this is not going to compare to a huge dollar bar but for the money I will be buying another.

    The bar being asked about by the original poster is pretty much the the bottom of the list as far as mini-LED bars are concerned. The light output is minimal in comparsion to other mini-led bars.

    If I was really on a budget, before I purchased the cheapo Sho-Me LED I would purchase a double rotator halogen lightbar. At 1/2 the cost it would be just as effective as the more expensive gen 1 Sho-Me lightbar.

    If you are not quite so limited by a budget, the best thing out there right now for mini-LED lightbars is a Whelen Responder LP. About $300 and it is one of the brightest/most effective mini-LED bars out there.

    Not when it's about 2 inches from the body...I cant be wiping the snow off every hour and putting myself in danger. I use a whelen duel strobe and works great....low-pro isnt always the way to go..I would like to see a video in action in a storm?????

    I went with this even though my budget was tight, and I am glad I did. It is real bright as night and does pretty good during the day. This would be the cheapest one I would buy becides a cheap dual rotator.
