Default The Spartan Or The Artic?

After doing a little research I have gotten down to the Spartan and the Artic. Various things such as customer service should be considered. So in your opinion give me list of the pros and cons of both or if you may have even a different suggestion.

Both dragon lasers and wicked lasers are shit companies. Dragon lasers blatantly scammed RHD, and wicked lasers has a lengthy history of bad business practices (such as selling their 1W lasers with goggles that will not protect you)

Either way they are both shit, but in my opinion dragonlasers is the less smellier shit.

I'd recommend Blord if you want a custom laser or if you want one from a company then Lazerer, Skylasers, ... Check the companies subforum for more information on good manufacturers

For cheaper sellers(but not bad): Lazerer or O-Like
If you are going for a high end company, try laserglow or optotronics

Why not just go for one of Yobresal's 1.4W blue ice laser? It's half the cost and stronger and not to mention it is focusable unlike the arctic and spartan.

Though if I were to choose between spartan or arctic I would take the spartan any day.
And I own one.

you can always look around here and ask for someone to build you one. I actually bought a Yobresal 1.4W blue ice a few days ago from another member. If I hadn't bought that, other people were willing to build me one and for a much cheaper price than any (good) website.

I would recommend buying from established LPF members. The lasers are build with pride and the after service will be second to none.

Plus you only have to wait 2 days to up to a week. Buy from China and it could take over a month
