GoLight Stryker

I'm looking for a little help on making a decision about GoLight lights. I know that some of you out there already have these lights on your rigs. I was considering the GL-3067-M which is the HID bulb with the magnetic base verses the same style light only with the Halogen bulb.

There are several differences right off the bat that I see. The bulb wattage, amp draw (1/2 that of the halogen) & candle power to name a few.
Those of you that have these lights, what do you think of them? What pros & cons have you noticed? One thing I'm wondering is if there would be too much light with the HID to use while working around your van. My main consideration for it's use would be for setting up a camp site at night or having to disassemble my or a friends glider if they don't arrive until after dark to retrieve you. I guess the same would hold true in deciding about HID verses Halogen driving lights.

Thanks for the help!

Sam

Go Light

Sam ,
I have two of the Halogen Stryker series light's and while I am very happy with the fit and finish I would opt for the HID 's as they are a superior light source .Maglight told me that they would be available some time this year and I opted not to wait as the date was iffy . I think that you will appreciate this light especially when you experience the color rendition quality and low amp draw .

Greggde:

Thanks for your input! I was leaning towards the HID bulbs for the reasons you mentioned.

Greggde you're welcome. According to Magnalight's website, there is a 4 week wait period once you order the lights. You might have to wait a while for the HID bulbs. It's good to know that they aren't trying to make you buy new lights.

Greg, well....I guess you better sharpen your pencil & get a bigger tablet.

Do you both agree that the HID's are the way to go with driving lights as well?

Thanks guys!

Sam
