I've been into laser pointers for a while now having bought a lot of devices from the major laser companies out there and of course I check this forum for info, reviews etc.The challenger II is really good, I have two of them and I highly recommend getting one. Also for 300 euros u don't need to look into other companies and buy trash from wicked or zeus I would take the 4.5W 470nm in Challenger II from Sanwu and some Eaglepair goggles OD6-7.
However l've been noticing some hostility towards wickedlasers and zeuslasers on this thread. I have to ask why though since both companies are established and offer great products for the price.
Why does it feel like this is a promotional website instead of an unbiased forum?
I have bought stuff from wicked, zeus, sanwu and laserpointerstore. All of the green 520nm lasers that I have from the above companies are of similar good quality as all of them use exactly the same diode as I noticed when I tried to disasemble them. So the differnce between company to company is the customer service, the prices and honesty of the merchant.
I know you won't like this but zeus and wicked do offer unbeatable customer service and that is non negotiable.
I'm not trying to promote anyone here but it really gets me when you try to promote some specific websites and
discredit websites that are actually well worth ordering from.
