WTB - powerful 635nm diode?

Why is it that I cant find a 635nm diode stronger than 7mW? I figured if you can get a 660nm at around 300mW stronger 635nm diodes would be around too. Is it just because they have no real uses? I really like the color of my 7mW module, so much that I refused to sacrifice it for a 660nm diode :p

Am i just not looking enough or do they really not exist?

They exist in powers up to an beyond 300mW.
Expect a big price tag and a c-mount multimode diode.

Alright, where would I find a 9mm laser module to mount a 9mm 635 diode?

Pontiac, I've got one, doing ~400mW -- it's a sight to behold, but don't expect single mode TEM00.

That said, you turn it on... "it's a helluva drug".
