Not to hijack or anything but the bulb on the coralvue kit can be subbed for a 14K or 20K.

They just never shipped me the lights, not for sure what really happened but they never charged my card either., On the Coralvue lights their a nice set up other than 2 of the bulbs are getting a build up of brown gunk on the inside bottoms like something is melting off from inside the bulbs. I'll see how that goes but as far as the kits go their first class, I think i may have just got a couple bad bulbs but I'll keep you posted.

A little browning of the filament is normal. The bulbs have a 30 day manufacturer warranty so you may want to inquire with dave at coralvue if you have any concerns.

coralvue is a name brand and stands behind there product. There stuff did have some problems awhile ago but have since been re engineered and are very dependable. I would not sell them if they were not.

Do you realize that most of the lights we use come from the pacific rim. Even some that claim to be german or japanese!

I'm not knocking Coralvue by no no means. I love them, Just curious as to the bulbs. I'm going to call then right now and I'll let you know the results.
