Hey everyone. I happen to see a story on a website about the arctic and it had me intrigued. I was about to order it, but I decided to hold off due to my inexperience with lasers. From there I started reading the other forum and then came across this one. After the price drop on WL, I ordered the sonar lunar, and have also ordered a few cheap green lasers, and another cheap blue laser. Once I feel more comfortable I will order the arctic. I have yet to order any protective glasses. I would like a recommendation to a pair if you can think of one. Hopefully for $30 or less. Hopefully something that will protect from the arctic and from the sonar as well. I have always been fascinated with lighting in general. From the red pointers when I was a kid, now to led flashlights, and also hid retrofits for cars (no the crap pnp hid kits). I haven't made my own flashlights or pointers, and I doubt I will. I really enjoy making my own headlights though.
