my buddy norcalhal is running those and the air cooled hoods with the Philips double ended bulbs. He has the head space and keeps them at least 3' above the plants and still sees some beaching. He said a good 20% increase in weight.

Wasn't aware of the Philips .....
Will have to look...
A production shop a friend runs just blew up with the gavita ....seriously added weight....we just trimmed like 28 packs on 12 lamps.........but his temps are on top end and quality has reflected the stresses .....
Butchers in LA still offered 2300.....
Thus me asking around .....

I just upgraded my lighting as well, but not those..
I bought 1 of these for my flower room. https://fluence.science/store/spydr-series/spydrx-plus/
and 1 of these to put in the veg room. https://fluence.science/store/spydr-series/spydrx/
so far i am loving the X, as i just ran a flower cycle with it. dont have a total weight on it yet. But i did do some research before i pulled the trigger, and seems some commercial growers are using them in the legal states and are loving them...

got me a friend using them in a warehouse veg room---put out a huge footprint---yes they do get hot hot hot---no doubt more bang for your buck in lumens/foot candles---gavita recommends replacing the reflective metal at a small charge on occasion to keep them working at top reflective capacity---if i were in the light market---i would buy them with a plan to control temps---later surf
