I have used the zeon 3-4 flash per second strobes for years, but have always used Christmaslightshow stobes. If you were going to order zeon strobes today, whose brand would you use? I am not interested in led strobes. I have been looking and searching for strobes this morning. I see a lot of the I tube strobes, is anyone using these? If so how do they compare to the what I would call the round tubes of the lightshow strobes for brightness? It seams I lose 15-20 of these strobes every year and trying to see if anyone has had better luck with the others that are out there. I am looking for the clear lens. I also seen a couple of these with a 6 watt rating this morning. What does 6 watt mean in the strobe world? Is this average for wattage? or high, low, normal?  

Thanks

Thanks ebrown for that info. I am still looking and found these that they say are 6-8 watt xenon tubes : http://store.3glightingcreations.com/products/C9-Strobe-Clear.html

Has anyone used these?

These as ebrown mentioned above from: https://thechristmaslightemporium.com/collections/c9-strobe-lights/products/c9-strobe-light-clear-xenon-incandescent

They say 5 watt and just as bright as u tube strobe. Has anyone else used these?

ebrown have you compared these to the u tube style strobes by chance.

The only reason I am asking about these is about 4 years ago I bought a case of strobes and when I got them they were about half as bright as the u tube ones I was using.

Thanks

Wayne

I do not have any of the U tube style ones so I cannot comment on the brightness of them. The ones I have do appear to be very bright. If you want super bright ones go with these https://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/684069-REG/American_DJ_MEGA_FLASH_DMX_Mega_Flash_DMX_800W.html lol. I a will actually be using 2 of these this year in my show along with several 5mm strobes.

Those might be a little over kill for me lol. I did order 10 sample ones to try from http://store.3glightingcreations.com/products/C9-Strobe-Clear.html

I will see what they look like when I get them.

Thanks
