    Standing ovation for this invention!!! Wow!!

    I'm guessing I can address the GI lightning issues on two of my pins for 1/3 of the cost of ONE set of mounted light strips......so glad I waited and did not buy those overpriced retina burners!!!!

    Quoted from Whysnow:

    This is not some crap that floods the pf. It is just like a regular bulb but allows implementation in the perfect spots where you want to remove shadows and increase visibility.
    I am really looking forward to trying these out once available. Small ammounts of light cast in just the right spots is all that is ever needed on even the dimmest game, like TAF. Bonus that it is color temp selectable, does not wash out al, the art, and appears as easy to install as a regular spot light.
    I love when someone addresses an actual problem at the right level rather than saying something is too dark and just flooding the crap out of it.

    AMEN Brother!!!! I can't wait to try these either, my BM66 is in dire need of these. One set at each slingshot, then 3 spread around the left G-A-D-G-E-T targets and 2 around the right TV targets.

    I will happily be the guinea pig for my BM66 compatriots, and coming from timebandit we know that these are premium quality products with fantastic customer service!!!

    Can't wait to order these once you have all of the different varieties available, to save on some shipping costs....

    How will the Sniper version mount if you put it between standup targets? Will it include some kind of mounting bracket?

    Quoted from TimeBandit:

    Yes. Brackets are the bain of my existence. You would think they would be easy to find, but noooo. I am getting some quoted to get made. I have a few trial versions like these below. But I'm not 100% happy with them. They work, but aren't what I really want to be shipping.[quoted image][quoted image]

    Marco has these (amongst others).....a little pricey for a small piece of bent metal!

    TimeBandit: what's the latest on availability on these???? My BM66 needs some Slingspots and Snipers......

    #80 3 months ago
    Quoted from TimeBandit:

    They are currently powered directly from the GI circuit. I initially built an isolation unit to run extra LEDs off the 12V extension header, with switching from the GI circuit, but I really don't think it's necessary. 8 LEDs won't kill it. Each board at full cool is 150mA. 600mA for the four of them is ok. 3 watts.
    I can always provide isolation units, but doubt people will want the extra spend.

    I'm thinking 8 LEDs for my BM66: 4 SlingSpots at the Slingshots, 2 Snipers in the GADGET targets, 2 Snipers in the TV targets....too much for the Spike 2 GI??

    Quoted from TimeBandit:

    I would start to think about isolation if you're getting up to and over an amp. I might revisit and put one together.

    Thanks, I’d appreciate it. Maybe make it available as an upgrade, as I’m sure I won’t be alone in wanting to add that many.....

    Cool!!! Order has been placed for 2 Spike sets!

    #93 3 months ago
    Quoted from TimeBandit:

    For node isolation purists (me included) I am also putting together a power/isolation unit for spike that will power off the 12v aux power and trigger off the GI.
    It’s not really necessary but for a few bucks it will be a peace of mind thing.

    Count me in for those as well, as well as Spike Snipers when they become available......

    Quoted from TimeBandit:

    Slims are a couple more days away.

    Count me in on Slims/Snipers and the iso unit as well......but I'd appreciate them being made available at the same time to help defray shipping costs (if at all possible)
