    Talking Pfo 13k

    Revieved my 13k lamps last night along with my large order!thanks IJO! All I gotta say is WOW! I LIKE IT! very impressed.
    I realize I need burn in time but I'm very happy! I'd post a pic but I do not own a digi. If anyone would like to drop by and check em out fell free to PM me. On the side of the IWASAKIS
    they are a bit brighter and were not as green as I thought.
    I wouldn't hesitate to use IWASAKIS again on another tank but I'm fairly impressed with the PFO'S on a standard ballast. M58[the lamp was designed for this!]

    who makes these 13K pfo lights? Sounds suspiciously like the AB bulbs they just stopped carrying, that are also "13K" but sold as 10K. Are they available as double-ended? Will give me options in a year or more from now when I need new bulbs.

    interesting.. explains why they stopped carrying the AB bulb just before they came out with these. Right when I bought the ABs.. had to bug them to get a third bulb for the kit I got from them!!

    I doubt they are making them, they are just silk screening them. Cool though!

    Hopefully they will make a DE version.

    They still carry Ushio DE. I'll have to find another better source for AB bulbs in the future. Champion's is too expensive as a supplier for up here, might order direct from US places.
