    Update! So we now have some issues with the Cooper fixtures!

    Spec sheet rates the fixtures at 24000 lumens,

    But the DLC listing only recognizes them for 19000 lumens output.


    So instead of the expected $200 each rebate, they will only qualify for $140 rebate.


    Pre check the DLC listings before you purchase anything! Bullshat false advertising has some expected rebate money up in smoke!

    We have used 24000 lumen visioneering fixtures. The dlc listing on them was over 25000 lumens. They were actually a bit cheaper and I was getting a price match on the coopers to be equivalent. We were only buying Cooper because they where in stock at a different wholesale vs waiting for them.

    No more coopers for us at the moment. Waiting for a reply from Cooper and our supplier.

    But as I said before, as a business that is selling and installing these we need to purchase these fixtures from a source that we know will still be around in 5 Years for warranty purposes. Most manufactures donít cover our expenses of time and man lifts to warranty the fixtures, and our customer relationships are very important to us and we make things right for our customers. Warranty of a dud fixture is already done at a loss and we cannot afford to eat the price of these expensive fixtures as well.


    We have learned the hard way a few times that the import fixtures, or small fry store front LED shops donít work out for our business. They may work out fine on a personal level where you have limited number of fixtures and itís only your personal time and the cost of a fixture to deal with duds.



    If there was not a massive rebate program to make prices equivalent, and everyone having an LED dinger in there pants, I would be using 6 lamp T5 fluorescents!

    Will look this weekend and see what I have available. Don't get caught in "brand names"

    I had some truck lights built that came out of the same factory that night rider comes from. I got them at half the cost and a better mounting bracket delivered to my door
