Default Optotronics RPL-225 review

ok i lied - the review will b posted here later tonight so just watch this space
well the wait is over, i finally got my laser today havent really tested it by any means as of yet. i will give u my 1st impressions tho -
the laser came in a box with quality padding/foam inside, the actual case for the laser is a very nice sleek quality plastic finish. when i opened it, it contained a few bits of paper with instrucutions/power out confirmation etc which is good for reassurance.

the laser is slightly bigger than i expected(not that its of any concern) but u know its pure quality when u hold it.
put the battery in, put the level to 2 and pressed the power button -
OMFG ;D easily the most brightest/powerful/quality build laser i have ever seen!!!! it blew me right away, i still cant get over how bright this thing is - the beam is clearly visible in daytime, absolutely no fog/smoke whatsoever. that was on level 2, i switched it to level 4 or 5 and im not kidding, the brightness was doubled stings me skin instantly(the sting from this laser is like a burning sensation and not a measily sting u get off most cni's.
im yet to try matches or balloons but i shouldnt even need to think what the output of that would be ;D. im yet to witness its true potential, this laser really kicks a$$!
before i got this, the most powerful handheld i owned was a 125mw fusion from wicked - let me get 1 thing straight, the power/brightness of this rpl on level 2 is easily,noticeably "twice" as bright as the fusion this really makes the fusion look non-existent!

id like to shout a big thank you to Jack for making this dream of mine come true, and thanx for a mega discount and all the optics/accessories u threw in. thanks again to Jack and Optotronics who manufacture such amazing lasers, i knew these lasers were powerful but to actually see it for urself is completely another story - no pictures/comments can justify this laser u gotta see it to believe it.
pics/vids more to follow later.

They don't manufacture their lasers. Their primary sales are manufactured by Viasho (RPLs) and also CNI

crystal fun- http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=K0wC_3hjfnc

4 meter balloon pop- http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iLV4mXb-UtE

a weird tunnel- http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=B4e9pTqeFo4

another strange tunnel- http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vUF7XzKBJyk


erm the last time i tried a tunnel it turned out perfectly with a big tunnel and the circle projected on the wall was massive atleast 24".
what was the reason behind gettin these odd results?

well to to be honest i dont really know yet - visually level 4/5 r the brightest. i have had the laser on for about 2-3 minutes on level 5 cotinuously without reaching the auto-shut-off point.
