They may or may not be still selling---the main SKY marketing company laserbtb just stopped taking orders on the 24th March see:laserbtb

Sky-lasers prices are too high anway--the last official price for the 100mW 532nm at laserbtb whch has been the factory owned retail sales outlet was $132.01 not $199

Why take a chance ---have a look at JetLasers --- they are the best of the best, professional level, high quality lasers with best customer service in the business --look at at the PL-E Pro series and the PL-E Mini series--see: JETLASERS.ORG, find a selection of high power handheld lasers, dpss lasers, diode lasers and laser dazzlers - JETLASERS.ORG

Agree with Encap. I have the laser you mentioned in the highest power version. I think the Jet Lasers have better beam specs for their PL-E Pro.

Green Laser Pointers : Dragon Lasers

At least you are after green which has a few good options. Dragonlasers has a 300mW for about $300 shipped. There is also 520nm to consider however the higher powered ones are those pesky multitude diodes.

I'm sorry but what do you mean by "Way too unstable" ? Does that mean the output would go up and down a lot or something else ?

Started at 52mW and within 15 seconds, dropped to 25mW and kept dropping. TEM mode was so bad I could see the beam split into 2 separate beams. So back it went.

I got a 200 mW green years ago from Sky. It never
put out 200 mW and if the temperature wasn't just
right, I got about 50 mW just like right now.

589 is a hard wavelength to fit into a handheld as im sure you know but that's a pretty bad unit indeed. Good thing you sent it back!

The issue here is much more likely to be related to alignment/thermal problems. DPSS can be fussy even at 532nm, 589nm is even more fussy and way less efficient.
