LED lighting for my portable

10 posts in this topic

I was looking at best hon- kon- led ropes has anyone compared the white leds to the warm white leds? The information on there web site says they put out the same amount of light. Is there a better alternative?

I haven't compare the warm white to the white, but I am guessing the white is the way to go.

I like warm white because it projects the lighting in a bit more natural and "warm" color. White is nice and BRIGHT and I'm not sure how they are side by side (I think Harvey Lee has both as he's mentioned before). For someone like myself that is confined to an office full of fluorescents and unnatural lighting. I can't stand the whiteness of that color of light when I'm fishing. I have a 48cm strip in my Clam 460 and it is plenty bright. Good luck

I thought I had heard that the warm white wasn't as bright. I have two 48 cm strips of the regular white and they are nice, though they definitely have a touch of blue tint to them. Not bad - still mostly white, but I could see the warm white being much nicer if they had the same brightness.

I'm not sure? I know mine are bright to the point that I'm installing a dimmer switch because it's too bright at night. Buyer beware, people have had bad luck with packages showing up with bulbs not functioning and the return policy is non existent. If you do buy them reinforce the stock cable with a heavier duty cable that can withstand the cold. Good luck.

Has anyone ever tried the rope lights from Cabela's?? Seen them last night. 3 foot long for $34.99.

Guess I'm asking, if they are bright or not.

The GM ones are about as bright as Christmas lights...I use mine for a hole light.

    • Hey @rl_sd who had the meat on sale? Looks great btw
    • chicks maybe exploring what the beak is for
    •   You can also be a little creative with the leftover meat.  For example: The wife and I will whip up a spanish rice mixed in with the pork and make Enchiladas or heat the pork on the stove top, mix in some BBQ sauce and make quesadillas (the grandkids love them).   There's more to pulled pork than sandwiches.  
    • that is great!!!!   good for you guys!!!!
    • Your right rs_ld,  a full smoker is the way to go, leftovers can always be frozen and re heated..good eats.
    • 195 degrees on these butts. Like they say, if you are going to spend 9 hrs smoking 5# of meat, you just as well spend the same amount of time smoking 45#. The local grocery had these on sale so had a few friends take the offer to throw a roast on for them. Took two off early for slicing  Pulling the rest cost them each a beer though!
    • Very good stuff, kinda tasted like ribs with this recipe,  I'll keep at it til I find the right one!! Good luck moon lake!!
    • It will be interesting to see how the Warriors react in free agency.  Will they be able to keep the team together?  It seems like all these guys value winning above a paycheck so they might be willing to sign deals that will still allow the team flexibility to keep good role players around them.    
    • That's too bad.  The fish were ON FIRE up there.  I went out with my dad and uncle with our tiller walleye boat, and hardly a clue what we were doing, and we crushed them!  Ended up with 118 pounds of packaged salmon fillets.  I think I can honestly say it was the most fun fishing trip I've had in my life.  Here's my biggest of the trip, 25 pounds.    
    •   It's amazing to see a thoroughly talented team like Cleveland just get dissected like a back alley pick up team. I agree--GS will be THE team to beat for several more years if they keep their nucleus. I think we can make them sweat a little bit now, though, so that's pretty exciting for a change!
