The word "great" Doesn't come into play when we are talking about Wicked Lasers. Sorry.

Pretty much any laser from DragonLaser is most likely going to be a good one.
However I would recommend THIS LASER
It's top notch and it looks good

EDIT: I thought I read dragonlasers.... I failed

Depending how much you use it, you may want a more powerful one later on
in which case I suggest lazerer or O-like for a decent 50mW or 100mW laser that is still inexpensive

Remember to always wear safety glasses when using a laser over 5mw!!

I bought a core, laser glow is 39 + shipping about 70-90, ( I live in Auckland) and core is free shipping. I know core is bad but some ppl said WL is bad but it is the only laser that under 50 plus shipping. Thanks for replying!

The core is one of the best quality <5mW greens as well as one of the cheapest.

iEven at such a low watt output, I'd make sure it has an IR filter to be completely safe.

Ill second on the core. Its the only thing WL has had going for them, really. I had one for a year and a half until i dropped it and muffed up the crystal alignment. I believe the Cores are actually true 5mW greenies. Or roughly 5mW 3-5mW.

Not a real 200mW Green laser. Many sites will have 200mW lasers for under 30$, but they will be FAKE.
