Default I ordered a new Alpha 125!

Hi, I'm new to the forum.

Well, I finally earned up enough money to get an Alpha 125 from Nova! I bought the Alpha 125 because it seemed to have the best bang for your buck ratio. I've heard that it usually tests well above 125mW, sometimes even around 145mW. I used to own a Wicked Lasers Evolution 35mW, which I was very disappointed with. It had a whole variety of problems, the least of which were mode hopping problems, button malfunction, and cheap build quality. I heard that Nova sold some really great lasers, so I went with them. So far I've talked to the customer service once about shipping, and they were very gracious and helpful. So, I wondering, would the Alpha 125 be able to light matches and pop balloons from a distance? I know it can do both up close, I'm just wondering about distance.

Once I get it, I'll be sure to write a review!

Thanks!

It should be able to light matches from a couple of feet and pop balloons from a bit further. Btw I hope you bought some safety goggles for burning with it.

Cool! *Thanks for the reply. *Yep, I bought the "NOVA Shields Sport" goggles with it, it would be almost suicidal not to. *

thanks

Thanks everyone! I'll be getting it tomorrow, so I'll be sure to post pics! Unfortunately, I don't have a power meter so I can't do power testing, but I'll definitely still do a review. Maybe unboxing pics too!

thanks!
