So you're sure this is the right one? (The last ebay link you sent me) I'll be buying it right after you confirm :)

This laser will be a nice starter laser. It's focus able ,comes with everything, and WILL be overspec. But by how much i can't say. I can say it will have a nice beam, and PROBABLY light matches and pop balloons, cut tape etc. so for that price, you can't expect the world, but you will be happy with what you get.
Up to you. But after you get this one. THE ADDICTION STARTS

If your planning on lighting insane amounts of matches, you will hurt your eyes from looking at the spot so close. But as far as pointing at the sky or watching the beam you should be fine. Just don't look at the spot to close. Trust me, you will know when you've looked at it when you shouldn't have. And obviously be very aware of where the beam is going. A direct hit even from this laser will do damage to your eyes permanently .

Ok thanks. I'll do some research for some good eyewear so I'm ready if I want to upgrade to something bigger later. I may just stick to lighters and magnifying glasses for my pyro side for now haha.

The guys here would really respect that statement. So many ask for a death ray for their first laser. Glad to see someone with sense. Makes me feel justified to have helped you. :beer:

Ebay is not treating me well at all... I ordered the one that said it could ship to Canada, and today I get a message from the seller saying he doesn't ship to my province. (Ontario). *Face Desk*
Is there yet another website I can buy this on that will for sure ship to Ontario Canada?

Since it doesn't seem like this Ebay situation is working out, what's the best name brand green laser that is close to this one. Preferably under 100.

Damn man. If you want a similar one from eBay that ships to you, then search eBay till you find one that works.
This isn't a laser finding service. Lol I think if you go back and read this thread , you will find just how many suggestions we made for you. Good luck.

Just go with sci fi lasers when they get stock in. That will be one of the best options for your price range.

Or those jetlasers titanium , but those are a bit over 100mw and $100.

Contact hakzaw1 for those.

eBay is just such a hard place to look anyways. Sifting through junk to find some........decent junk lol.

I'm telling you man, it won't be long for sci fi to get stock. Till then, learn about lasers. Safety , the wavelengths, the mw( power) and then you can make an educated decision, instead of rolling the dice on your first purchase. There is a lot to learn here, so take advantage of the time you have until sci fi gets stock, and really learn what you want :)

Ahhhh!!! JetLasers, those are great quality and have many safety features, but like Tmack said... $$$ will add up fast on those.

What laser are you trying to find again? I may be able to re-find one?
