no no no. i understand how the optics concentrate the light and what-not. what the question for the seller was which LEDs (blue, white, red, etc) have the 90 degree optics and which ones have the 120. i never planned to get a 60degree optics but the seller's response didn't make sense to me. the listing has it at 90/120 mixed optics.
