I have a 5mW 589nm Aurora & 50mW 589nm Spartan.
yeah, I dont buy it unless I see it on a professional LPM like mine. Its not unreasonable, but not likely either.
Yeah mine hangs out at about 100-120 range typically. Pretty hard to get much higher than that, so anything higher id be treating with scrutiny.
Your PGL-C 589 I assume you're referring to? I finally got my hands on one and a PGL-M 25mW 593.5nm. They just barely cleared customs from Canada. Scheduled to be delivered next Tuesday. The old flashlight declaration trick they are onto.
The PGL-III-M is the Spartan host, correct? If so, I think you're the first & only to have a 593.5 in that host! Did you purchase directly from CNI? :yh:
Yes, 50mW 589nm does produce a wonderful beam. Depending on where you get it from, they are usually overspec anywhere from 80-120mW on average. On fragility, i have a Spartan and it has a tough host. It also comes with a screw in lens cap. If you have the money, go for it. No regrets for me.
