I had a 7" combo on a fourwheeler that lit up good but LED on water seems to fade fast unless there's a backdrop like trees to catch the light... Just want opinions and hear what everybody else has. If they like it or not, etc.....
I got a spot/flood combo and like it a lot. On big water it does get swallowed up but I ran it this year with the Seelite handheld spotlight and it worked great for keeping track of the bank and the next curve in the river. When you get in the woods you can drop the handheld and just use the bar on the front. No need for anything else.:thumb:
I've got a couple of each, I prefer the spot pattern (using on vehicles, can't speak for boats). On the cheaper bars, the optics aren't that great and there's enough light scattered around even with the spot it lights up very well. Here's a 30" double row combo (left) and 30" single row spot (right). The combo has double the LEDs so it is brighter, but notice the diameter of the pattern on the spot.
Fog's one of those things that SUCKS. The brighter the light, the worse the fog droplets reflect that light back to your eyes, and you see nothing but white. Kinda like the time I put HID kit in my old F150 Lightning. Got into a foggy spot and they SUCKED. Put the silverstars back in and scrapped the HID kit.
