Polarion Korea is still in business and all their products are available for sale in the USA (Polarion-store, Polarion-sales). As noted in this post, wattage or lumens is not the end-all. Quality of the reflector is a critical factor that is often missed.

The PH50D is the latest civilian self-contained HID light. Under $2,000, dual mode (30-50W), water resistant to 20 meters, will throw close to 1 mile. Compatible with all Polarion filters including IR. 5200 mAh Li-Ion.

Looking to add a few more over the top self contained, factory made HID Lights to add to the fleet.Anything new out that I am not aware of anyone..? Only want the ELITE TOP Dogs to add...

The Maxabeam of course. It's very well known. It's also the farthest throwing portable light you can buy.

yes it is, and only beats them all by a measly 3 miles :huh::laughing:
would be nice if it pumped out around 7k lumens though
then you would have something:thumbsup:
they got lights you carry in your pocket, that have more lumens than the MB

Well not quite. The xevision superpower throws almost as far and produces 7500 lumens. It is much larger though and he brighter spill reduces effective range. On the other hand the spot is much larger.

Definitely nice to know, I still have my PH50. Anyone interested in buying it just PM me! After selling it I hope to pick up the new version probably in the very near future.

Your eyes are the problem. It's difficult too see small objects (people for example) in that large of a distance. So from a practical perspective the Maxabeam doesn't go that much farther.

yes, but at say 1000 meters, it will still put twice the intensity, or more, on a subject, with 4 times the lux
am i right there ?

As PolarLi described above, similarly, in a 900 Yard beam shoot with an 85 Watt, 1 degree beam Gen3 MB and a 175 Watt, 2 degree beam Megaray, the hotspot from the MB was indeed brighter than that of the MR however I could not tell that I was illuminating a large tree until I hit the same target with the dimmer but larger hotspot of the MR. So in this long-distance case, brighter was not better.

Nativetexan,

I tried replying to your pm but your inbox is full. The PH50 is still available since you're interested!

Sorry, bulb. I read through the posts here and saw that there was a scarcity of currently produced factory offerings. The one I mentioned has a lot going for it: The one-off factor, gorgeous machining, and pretty much a full set of spare parts that are from a well known, high quality manufacturer. I must inquire, what on earth is a worm wrestle?
