Default Best 473nm Buy?

So... my journey tracking down a Spyder III 473nm went sour, so back to square one...

Anyone's opinions on where to get a nice 473nm handheld? I'm thinking that the JetLasers GB option is appealing, anyone yay or nay? I've seen the two reviews on the JL PL-E Pro 473nm's, they are very positive. Opinions appreciated, thanks so much!

EDIT: Oh and btw... 473rd post

Default Re: Best 473nm Buy?

I have the JetLasers PL-E Pro 10-30mW 473nm and it is absolutely amazing. I highly recommend it.

I added my review/comments to Speedy's thread here: PL-E Pro 473

There is another awesome review here: JetLasers 473nm PL-E Pro [Pics]

The lasers are fantastic, but dealing with JL and Gray was a top notch experience.

Check it out.

I've got a CNI 473nm. Sold as 80mW, peaks at 120mW.
Never heard a bad thing about jetlasers though.

Beam specs on CNI's will be amazing from the 589nm and 561nm I have. Maybe 1.1mRad?

Default Re: Best 473nm Buy?

I can't give specs on mine (haven't ran the numbers yet) but the beam is insanely tight.

I was looking at both the CNI 473 and the JL 473 and ended up picking the JL for a couple reasons:

- Warranty JL 1 year, CNI 6 months.

- CNIs' PL-III-C host (what my 589 uses) is nice and hefty but the PL-E Pro from JL is a ***y beast.

- The service provided by Gray was top notch. Emails were answered within 12 hours which is awesome considering the time difference. In fairness I've never contacted CNI directly so I can't give a direct comparison.

- Price. To get one in the same guaranteed power range, 10-30mw would have cost $75 more in the recent CNI GB.

Honestly whichever company you buy from you'll end up with one helluva sweet laser.
