Wouldn't that light be inferior? 1127µmols/s compared to 1762µmols/s. I appreciate the help. Vero 29s don't look too bad but I'm actually getting the cree for $27.50/piece so wouldn't be saving a substantial amount of money with vero.
I got my vero29se COBs (Qty: 20) from Future Electronics for about 21.50. May be cheaper for the quantity you're looking for.
