Hercules is a popular unit that many people have bought and loved them, Laserglow has been time proven to have good units. Nova is known to have great service for their lower powered units but I don't know of anybody who has bought one of their bigger ones.

Hi Nik,
Both companies offer quality products, in fact they may even be the same company, I don't know this for sure; but I had heard they were.

Maybe Justin will chime in and give us the scoop 1st hand.

If you want to go with a higher power, I would also consider the RPL-260 along with the Nova 250 and the Herc. The power level of the RPL model is always understated on our web page as it's best to over deliver on the product, we give the most conservative numbers output power so the customer will always be pleased with what they receive.

First you need to decide how much "portability" you want in your laser. If the size of the laser does not matter, then keep the Herc. on your list. If you want something that is easily carried around in your coat pocket, then the Herc is not for you as it's rather large and not easily toted around.

I don't have any 1st hand experience with Nova or it's product, except that I did own a CNI PGL-3 at one time and the Nova-250 is very much like the PGL-3 and made by CNI I believe.

Our RPL-260 is the smallest and easiest to carry around of the 3, but is only about 1 inch shorter than the Nova 250.

Other considerations:
If you live in Canada, it would be a plus towards the Nova or Herc as there would not be transit through customs or possible customs charges for either the purchase or if it needed return for repair. Another plus if live in Canada would be that buying a Herc or Nova 250 would be supporting a business in your own country and helping your own economy.

If you live in the USA, it would be a plus towards the RPL as there would not be transit through customs or possible customs charges for either the purchase or if it needed return for repair. Another plus if you live in the USA would be that buying an RPL would be supporting a business in your own country and helping your own economy.

Jack , that post speaks bucket loads of Credibility for you and your company. The fact that you compare your products to those of another manufacturer , with crystal clear information , without playing them down in any way shows the confidence in your products and provides the correct information to any potential buyers.

Well done sir, I take my hat off to you.

laserglow makes nova's units under contract.

As someone who has both a Herc and a rpl..

The herc is nice becuase you can plug it in and let it run forever. it never gets warm. It does have a HUGE beam, that's very pretty and the divergance is fantastic. It has lots of raw power, and goes well above it's rated power for several minutes, like 500mw+ until it settles down. The herc has ttl and external power, it's more like a portable lab laser than a handheld.

The rpl is much more portable. It also feels sturdier. The aluminim is not quite as soft, and the finish feels good. the beam is unbelieveably small and tight. about 1/3 the size of the herc. It does not have the runtime, mine's only good for a few minutes tops at maximum power, but if I drop it down a level or so it'll run until the battery goes dead. It does get very warm/hot.

I'll post a picture comparing them, the rpl is tiny compared to the herc.
