    Whelen is the only way to go as far as strobes are concerned. The FD has mostly Federal Signal for Halogen stuff.

    Nothing wrong with Whelen, but Tomar has way more power and better light dispersion or diffusion or whatever the word is. Point of fact, I rebuilt an older Edge one time, it was an eight head with four linears on the corners and four non-linears in the centers. I ran the outers on a Whelen 90w comet supply, and the inners on a Tomar supply. The Tomar had a five flash pattern where all five flash bursts were equal power, and the Whelen Comet was four flashes with only the first flash being full power. To compare them side by side was unbelievable, the Tomars practically blew the Whelens out of the bar. I switched them around, but eventually settled on leaving the Whelens on the bigger linears because the Tomars were too bright for plowing on the linears, and the Whelens weren't bright enough on the non-linears.
    I think Tomar would have had a lot more popularity if it weren't for their ugly lightbars. Edges are far better looking. And if you remember before Tomar made their own ugly bars, they used to build them inside of old Federal Signal Aerodynic bars.

    In order of Preference:

    1 - Whelen
    2 - Federal
    3 - Code 3
    4 - Tomar

    The rests for the most part are spin off's but not all that bad.
