LED vs Incandescent
 
I was wondering why so few folks use LED flounder lights.:nerd: They are extremely bright, use very little electricity & last a very long time.

I have not tried gigging yet so I'm not familiar with the light systems used.

Up until of lately....They just didn't have the candle power.

More and More guys are rigging their Bowfishing boats with them as they have gotten better.

If you want to know more...Go here.

We go gigging Flounder with LED lights and they work great.

All of the better/brighter LEDS are big money compared to incandescent,I just built a light set up on my boat using halogen Starfire's for less than a 100 bucks.Just one LED is that much or more.IF I could afford LED I would have went that way.

I have a source for 20watt leds for about $35 each. I don't know how they compare to the halogens. I know if you look at one for a few seconds you will see spots for an hour.

How long do the batteries last with the hologens?

US source cheaper shipping higher prices

Chinese source is about 40% cheaper but shipping is more & they have a min $ order. Also you need to speak Chinese. I have a friend that speaks Chinese that helps when I want to order

You can go on E-bay and beat the hell out of those prices and most of the china shipping is FREE. The only bad thing is it takes sometimes over two weeks to get them. Most of the LEDs and flashlights are made in China and resold here in the US.

I have 3 50w bulbs and one GP 27 battery lasts about 6 hours.
