    Its just a personal thing but i find anything with a battery usually has trouble with sea water and connections at some time, i used to buy the isotope ones that lasted 10 years but now buy the starlite type off ebay the chinese ones about 2-3 quid for 20 they are bright enough and i have put them in the freezer before and they have regenerated themselves, i cant stand looking at those ultrabright ones

    I love them, best I've come across for a very long time. But as they say, horses for courses I suppose.

    Wonder how they would fish in cloudy water on a shad after a bit of swell, at that price might be worth a shout, waterproof to 250 metres

    mine lasted 3 casts then flew off... the second one I have put on with tape as I was finding the line was catching it. I do like the fact you just put the battery in backwards for storage.
    the are a lot cheaper from the the manufacturer in tiawan.... but then.... they would be.:)

    funnily enough its on a firefly rod as well

    Funnily enough scrubbs I have had lads testing them and doing write ups for the lights, and they had no probs with them coming off. I supply 2 sizes of holders to ensure no probs, and of course cheaper if bought direct from manufacturer, the same as 90% of fishing tackle sold I would think but without the hassle of Custom & exise & the dreaded VAT. But everyone to their own as they say. Out of interest how much did it cost you for 2 lights from Taiwan with postage? :)

    I didn't buy them from manufacturer, I picked them up locally last year I paid about £4/5 for the 2 but there was only 1 size holder.. but the manufacturer was quoting 50 mm LED fishing rod tip light: US$5.0 in july last year and minimum order of 50. I think the 37mm was US$4.50

    You had a very good deal then mate at that price without doubt. One company is selling at £9.99 plus P&P of about £2.5 on their website. another guy on Ebay is selling on there at £6.99 plus over £2 for P&P but sells them around the forums for the last 2 yrs at £5.99 plus P&P, now dropped his price to match mine. The 2 holders have solved the problem of fitting to rods or appears to have. I have got the manufacturer to provide both holders in the packs now. If that was the price last year then the manufacturer has certainly altered his prices. lol. Thanks for the input. :)
