    Thought some of you might like to see a comparison between the two. I recently bought both, I've been running the pinicle for a few years and wanted to try something different so I sold my used pinicles and bought one of each.

    The building next to the truck is 10ft away
    Van truck box is 50ft away
    The far building is 135ft away
    There is another building to the left of the far building 250ft away (I can see the flash on this one from the responder but I don't think it shows in the video)

    Looks like Whelen to me. Glad that's the one I chose, too!

    I recently bought one of each also. I think the Whelen is bighter. But, for the money the Sound Off is a very bright bar. We also have a few FS Mini Highighters, which are pretty comparable to the Mini Pinicle.
