    Anyone have the Whelen Responder LP minilight bar? Looking for opinions on it. Magnetic mount or permanant mount.

    As far as mini-lightbars go right now they are the best thing going in my opinion. They are affordable and have great light output, better output even than some of the more expensive mini LED bars (and I have owned a few different ones now).

    You can buy the CON3 style for $240 or the Linear will set you back around $300. I purchased the linear version but for the average guy I think the CON3 is also a very nice light and puts the low-end Sho-LED bar to shame (and they are about the same price).

    go with the linear version, in my opinion its worth the extra 60$ you will have more of a light spread, the con 3 head is more of a directional lighthead, and whelen linear lights are extremely bright

    Here is a video comparing the CON3 (on the left) to the Linear (click the picture to play). They are both red but you get the idea of how much more intense the Linear is.
