So, it seems that 125mW Viper and the 125mW Hulk has the same price. Which one I should choose? I really like that Hulk-series has double warranty and it seems to be more durable. But how about burning abilities and visibility of the beam? I heard that Viper laser has more burning abilities because diameter of the laser beam is smaller.

I also noticed that some other company are selling exactly the same CNI 125mW laser pointer (a.k.a Viper), with price over $100 less. Would it be still better to go for that 125mW Hulk from DL?

yea the viper series definitely burns better than the hulk because of the small beam diameter
long story about the $399 price tag on the 125mW viper

I would strongly suggest the X-105 from novalasers
i have bought the hulk, viper and xseries before
I still think dealing with nova was a more enjoyable experience

I second me_too_lazy's post and so will most of the people on here. Nova has been proven to be a good company, and Dragon Lasers has been known to send out underspec lasers at the 125mW level.

Will the visibility of the beam also be better if the diameter of the beam is smaller? (so Viper would also have better visibility of the beam?)

OK, but how much better the X125 model would be? Company called TechLaser has this same 125mW CNI laser but with much lower price (only $275 with 5% discount). Anyone having any experience about this?

another long debate
whether fat beam or thin dense beam is more visible
i like thin beam, but some of the more experienced users prefer fat beams

DONT BUY FROM TECHLASERS PERIOD
you can get 5% off novalasers too if u use the code "warp5"
x105/x125 you wont be able to tell the difference b/w the two without a meter

Why's that? I mean the manufacturer is the same so where is the difference? Their live chat was also actually very good.

which reason do you prefer
underspec lasers
or non existent support when you have a problem

OK. That seems to be enough for me. I just placed an order for that 125mW Hulk. I chatted via live chat and the sales rep promised little "over-powered" model. He also said that bigger beam diameter means greater beam visibility.
