Nah dude - don't get what the record holder got - you can get something that'll suit better for much less money. WickedLasers (the company that makes the record-attempt guy's laser) overcharges and is outperformed by better lasers from other manufacturers.

Best for that challenge will be something with a nice tight beam with 1+W (1000mW+) of power. Make sure you also get some appropriate safety goggles, as this amount of laser power is easily enough to permanently blind you. Something like the Eagle Pair goggles from SurvivalLaser in the US is recommended. In terms of the wavelength (in nanometres, or nm), this determines the colour, with blue lasers from 450-490nm, green from 500-560nm and red from 600-700nm. This is a personal preference that you can choose - though the best for the challenge will no doubt be Blue lasers (455nm) as they have the best bang for your buck.

Perhaps something like the JetLasers PL-E Pro with 2 or 3 watts of power? Other forum members might have a good suggestion or two.

I hope you find what you're looking for :) Good luck.

Yup didn't mention the 532's as at anything around 800mw is going to be expensive..
I still can't find the challenger with a 535nm at 800mw??

Make sure to wear some good quality laser safety glasses that attenuate the wavelength you are working with, you only get one pair of eyeballs.

Here's a link below where many of us get ours and they give you good protection but you have to be wearing them .........Duhh I know, but seriously please do protect your eyesight, I don't want to hear about anyone here getting wrecked.

I have used those cheap Chinese glasses before but when doing wood burning art up close I doubled them up by gluing two together, but then I bought a pair of eagle pair from survival at that link I posted and not only did they do a better job ( zero blue visible ) but the visible light transmission was also better, so those are better than nothing and will likely be sufficient but some of those cheap glasses are better than others and they simply use a stock image, so what you get may be ok or may be from a poor dye lot, but the eagle pair at survival are going to be good every time.

So something is almost always better than nothing but our eyes are important enough to spend the extra money.
