Default Which laser should I buy?

Hello guys!
I want to buy a new laser with good quality, I've only owned weak lasers before. I've read around, and I've decided to go for a green one.
So my question to you guys are:
Are this a good laser? Spyder 3 Krypton Green Handheld Laser
Please come with recommendations on other lasers, so I get a big list of good quality lasers.

Also... Lasers are illegal in my country, any tips on how to get it through customs?
If it gets caught, I need to pay a fine of about 600 dollars.

Greetings!

This is your first post, and you're asking for a big list of quality lasers?
What country might you be living in? I see your fine would be in dollars.

Yes, that is probably the best laser you can buy and make sure the seller does not mark it as a laser, ask them to send in two pieces or more and NO BATTERIES.

That definitely isn't the best laser OP could buy. WickedLasers don't have a good reputation, even if their products are OK not to mention being flagged by a bunch of countries.

There are reasons most folk on here avoid them.

This is coming from the guy that received a free Spyder to review when it first came out.

OP, do some searching on the forum. Look at some reviews of products from LaserBTB, Sanwu Lasers and Jet Lasers. Alternatively you could look at custom builds by members here.

There's a thread in the companies section about all the different companies and who to buy from. Regarding who has the best chance at getting through Norwegian customs, I have no idea.

Try BitLasers. I believe Grix is based in Norway, so this would be perfect.
