I am thinking about getting 2 of these for my X45. Anyone have a review of them? Are there better lights in that price range $350-400 ea?

Thanks

Here's the link for those who don't know what he's referring to. I had to look it up myself. Needless to say, I don't have any experience with them, but they look like they will be very bright. 3400 Lumens is no joke. I have a 500 lumen flashlight and it literally makes night into day, you can see it brightly in the day time.
If the water is clear enough, I could see you using that to look for dropped goodies in a party cove at night time lol

I would also like to hear a few reviews from someone. I wa thinking of 2 blues ones. They appear to be bright at 2.6A and 3400 lumens. I like the size.

SeaBlaze3 has something out there at 2.5A. About the same price point.

I've also looked at OceanLEDs and Shadow Casters. They get great reviews but are more $$$.

GET THEM!!!! I had the Abyss S800 series and they are very bright so I'm sure these will be even better. On my new boat I'm getting the mini starfish in blue as well.

Lumens is an unqualified spec within the underwater light biz and very hard to compare from brand to brand. It's almost meaningless.
Look at the amperage draw. The efficiency of underwater LED lights run fairly consistent. In my experience, the amperage draw and brightness ran parallel.

I have the MC stock ones, and I love them. They are beautiful at night, and really add an atmosphere that I dont want to ever give up. Its a little hard to surf with them on if you arent weighted properly, as the lights wont always be underwater and shine and your eyes. I will say I wish I could change the colors on mine with a switch or with my onboard computer (the technology exists... common MC get with it).

I will say, I know for a fact that it makes me more visible at night. Which if anyone has ever driven a lot at night in a boat, knows thats a good thing, as people get a bit tipsy, not always pay attention, etc. So I find people give me a lot more room when I have them on.

I can't speak for the Abyss but I have (2) Lumitec Seablaze 3s in blue and they are amazing. Probably not quite as bright as the one listed due to slightly less amp draw but you can almost get two of them for the price of one Abyss...

Nice pic.

The regular Starfish Abyss are $639ish @3.8A.
Mini Starfish are $369ish @ 2.6A. Hard to beat the small size - 3"
SeaBlaze3 are $250ish @ 2.5A. Two good lights for $500 is pretty good.

Since the boat is in storage, I'm not sure what is going to fit under the 2007 Supra 22'.
Could probably do any of them.

Have you looked at the Lumitec Sea BlazeX? They're a little larger (4") and draw 3.6A but you can get them for about $$290.
Lots of color choices too.

I put in an order for a couple of the Sea Blaze X light's. The price is hard to beat. the shadow casters @3.5 amps the Abyss starfish @ 3.8 amps and the Seablaze X @ 3.6 amps made it an easy choice. I got two lights for $630 with shipping.
