    Hey guys. Fishstreet has these 15k 150w mh globes. They say its purple blue. Has anyone seen these or have them? What do you guys think of it? Here is the page
    HQI Light 150W

    How are the quality of the globes. Want blv 20k's but this seems cool and will work out cheaper, but are they worth it?

    Thanks
    Tre

    Please let me know when you have decided-I think I would like to get one as well. My globe is is about 18 months old now and the blue is sort of weak now.(20000k BLV)

    the BLV 20k is one of the best MH globes you can get hey. With these cheap globes we are taking a risk
