315w CMH. They work fine and dandy.

Interesting reading, especially the last few pages here. 

 

Just hung a focus remote up with a 942 lamp for vegging. More than impressed how well it puts the light down and how the lamp sits without an adaptor. I have been using the Dimlux alpha optics 98's with the PGZ18 adapter for flowering last 10 months and the reflector inserts are starting to go cloudy and one or two are visibly degrading and look like they want replacing, think I read somewhere that Dimlux recommend doing this every 12 months anyhow. 

 

The alpha optics insets are 30 quid each, cheapest I can find them. The focus brand new is 50 quidish on a multi buy. I have got a Light scout meter coming next week and think I will compare these 2. If the focus is up there with the Dimlux, they might be getting ditched.

Only slightly off topic. Any recommendations for a quantum meter. Links by pm if anyone spots a bargain. 

Surprisingly no one really  on the bandwagon in the uk yet with these, grow shop wise etc. best prices overseas and you will be waiting a little while with the shipping.

stu, have you tried giving the panels a clean ?

 

I've just took a dimlux out of my small tent & noticed it was a bit dull looking so gave it a clean with some pledge & gave it a polish, it came up great.

Had mine a few years now. People are tight and idiots (for the most part. Some of us just can't afford one, especially some apogee ones) is why not everyone has got one - apogee next for me or I might save up and get one that comes as part of a weather station.

First grow under 315 w CMH but I think it can match a 600W sodium.

 

 

I dont. In fact I know it can't especially if grown in the right environment. They might out yield a 600w for some but that only tells me them folk are not doing it properly with a 600w 

 

I and many others can do 20oz + with a 600. You couldn't do that with a 315w

How are people using agros and dayights lamps? 

I have (after seeing what others have done) always swapped the agros out in the last couple of weeks for the daylights, but I've forgotten this time (only got a week left)

 

Has anyone actually done a "scientific" test of this yet?

Thanks mate I didn't think of doing that.
