Looking for a nice 1W-1.2W Blue 445nm Laser

Recently I put up a thread about looking for a decent laser for between £60-£70, preferably a 532nm green lasers at around 200mW and after a little bit of searching on Lazerer I found their 500mW Blue "Stick" LZSK. This was maximum budget but perfect, maybe not green as I initially wanted but I've always wanted a blue laser around 600-800mW (or more), which this apparently peaks at.

However, I just won a Customer Services case on eBay and a refund of just under £20 has been issued back to me, boosting my budget to £90! Now the only problem is, I don't know what laser to get out of these:

1W Blue "Cyber" LZCB

This is my favourite host that Lazerer has (well, the rifle is but this is my second favourite :shhh:) and it's perfect; gives around 1W and is blue! The only problem is I hear a lot about the plastic thing in front of the lens. I often read that people that have the cyber model replace the front plastic thingy and I'm not much of a DIY person, so might have to give this a miss...

1W Blue "Stick" LZSK

This costs a bit more but only a tiny bit, and is pretty much the same. I think the host is a little bit boring and very similar to the LZCS Classic host which my 650nm laser is in (I would prefer to have different hosted lasers) but otherwise more or less the same laser.

Of course, I would love to get the rifle but I haven't got the money for one of those, even if it is £10 difference. Which is also why I'm settling for a 1W rather than a 1.2W (I'm no genius but I don't think it makes a helluva difference).

If for some reason though I was shorter on money or couldn't afford anything above, I'd settle for a Green 150mW Rifle (pehaps the 100mW if I really cannot afford it) or more likely the Blue 500mW Stick which actually has an output of between 600mW and 800mW as stated on their page.

Any advice/opinions?

Yep,,,1W Cyber, Stick and Rifle - all the same internals, just set in a different host.

Ok, I might have to go for the 500mW blue - I just won an eBay bid half unintentionally so I'll have to pay out £10 -.- Any other good lasers around the £50-60 budget mark? Not red as I already have a decent red and I'm not a fan of violet.
