Just figured I would throw my opinion out there. I bought a badass 1000w bulb to run saved 20 bucks vs my usual hortilux bulb. Im running it side by side with a hortilux eye that had 1 harvest on it. I use 2 nextgen ballasts and I will have to say I'm not impressed. The packaging is nice but I will be switching back to hortilux buds just don't seem to be swelling like my hortilux side and I even swapped a few plants and the hortilux side is doing better. Now I'm no advanced hater I use a ton of there products. But my opinion is unless you saving by buying a badass bulb and really need the cash I wouldn't buy one.
