What cob is compatible with 1150w gavita? How well does it penatrate into the canopy? How efficient is it compared to an hps? I’ve seriously been thinking about changing my lights. I’m just waiting for the technology to catch up. But there are so many different opinions it keeps me confused.

There’s always room for improvement. COBS are proven time and time again to produce dank bud. Seems to me anyone running hps in a commercial setup, and is not looking at new tech. Will not last long. Not when a competitor can do it a 1/3 cheaper bro.

When you compare the upfront cost of led over hid is what turns a lot of folks away. They aren't looking and thinking outside the box. For a large operation yes indeed you need deep pockets for the led tech, but in the long haul the

( bigger picture )it is an investment that will pay for itself over 5 years time. Think of the cost of electricity, maintenance, bulb replacements, cooling costs for a 1000 light operation. It is easy to see that led will be the better way to go. In todays world LED is making more sense all the time. There are 600w units that will pull damn near the yields that hps are pulling.

To add...A few yrs ago, I bought a Nextlight Mini for over $440 (list over $500). Since then I have added QBs and am happy AF..

Sure That was a lot of cash, but as @jumpincactus said..It is an investment and I would do it again..(5 yr warranty on that one tool)

Why don’t you guys go get married to some mafukin cobs since you love em so damn much. I’m going to custom make a dildo cob unit to represent how boned up everyone is for em. The extra light won’t hurt neither

I mostly run some bad ass halogens with some prime 9 watt cfls hooked up all sketchy. That’s what I find optimum. I grow the dankest of nards my brothers. I have some sick incandescent sidelighting. Soonefficient, so crisp

Using a combo of hps and COBs. Not even the best COBs. Some cheap ass citizen chips. Only difference I can tell from using 2 400w hps vs 1 400w hps and around 400w of COBs is the heat. Lot cooler with the COBs.
