Headlamp question

12 posts in this topic

Its kinda hard to explain but I'll try. The princeton lamp has a steady beam and surrounding light. You can point the beam almost straight out and still have plenty of light shine close to your feet to see to walk. And it is very bright light. I like to say that its similar to those really bright car headlights. So yes it does have a steady beam, but also produces light 170 degrees around it.

Bright light? I buy the brightest LED's made and I'm sure they are the same suppler Princeton and Petzal uses. There nice but if your looking for Bright White light, LED's cant give you that. Think of a flashlight in the fog and thats what you get with an LED. So ya there good and are easy on batteries but still not as bright as a krypton bulb. I buy LED's separately and the uses are endless.

Eh..Surface Tension

I have been kicking around the idea of rigging up some LED lights on my Vex, I like the low amp draw deal.

Have you tried this and where do you get the components. Can you get the goody's at Radio Shack?

Thanks,
Ed

Surface Tension,
I disagree with your flashlight in the fog statement. The Princeton Tec Auroras are much brighter than that.

These babies are bright and white.

The Princeton Tec Aurora LED Headlamp- does it have a focussed enough beam of light to satisfy my needs or is it a more diffuse
beam of light so as to not spook fish, etc?
I'd like a headlamp that shoots a relatively focussed beam of light- will this one make me happy?

    • Its a whole new world down there with SI and DI.   After you learn what the picture is showing you,  you'll wonder what took so long to get it   I was a Lowrance guy for years and made the switch to H'bird this year with the new Solix with Mega chirp.  Very happy with it so far.  Amazing clarity and images.

I call it the Mother Of All Backups or MOAB for short.   https://www.sumppumpsdirect.com/SUMPRO-SUMPROGOLD-Sump-Pump/p2565.html  
    • Has anyone been on Clear yet this season? Thinking about heading that way in a few weeks to try for some walleye and yellows. 
    •   Well wasn't cheap but you got fixed and it would have been a real mess if she blew out on the lake.
    • Congrats looks like a beautiful and productive lake! Nice work. 
    • Ended up being the clutch dog and reverse gear were wore out... 550 for parts...I almost ended up getting a whole new lower unit, but a buddy was able to find the parts...The shop said they discontinued the parts Yada Yada Yada, but some shop in Hackensack was able to find them I guess...just want the dang boat back ha...
