Default How far can I pop a balloon?

Assuming a single diode laser and "off the shelf" optics, what diode would pop a flat black balloon at the longest range?

I'm debating a Phaser build.

My guess is a NUBM06E

But maybe with the better divergence a NDB7975 would be better?

Well when I was into burning I had a blue ray 16x diode build I liked. With a tripod and proper focus I think I made to over 80 feet!

My guess would have been the NUBM44 just because it has the highest power.

The 6W NUBM06E puts that six watts on a 20% smaller spot than the NUBM44

Following that logic is why even at just 3 watts a NDB7975 might be even better.

I'm just wondering if anyone knows for sure.

Is that size of the spot for the NUBM06 with the ball lens or G2 lens? Where are you finding the sizes of the spots at?

With only an off the shelf lens the BDR-209 would be your best long range balloon popper, with fast axis correction and an expander the 44 can out range it.

With off the shelf lenses does the BDR-209 win hands down over the 44 or is close?

Hands down, the BDR wins. Though the 44 will pop them much faster at close range.

I guess I may have to PBS combine a pair of BDR-209s at some point.

How compact could the fast axis correction and beam expander for the 44 be made?

Hmm looks like I need to get me one of these BDR-209s put it in a micro pen build and whip it out just in case I see some balloons in the distance
