Looking to buy a 75W BarnBurner HID or 50W Xeray. 50W Xeray has to be 2nd generation not 1st generation. If the 50W Xeray is a 2nd generation upgraded to BarnBurner then thats fine. I am just interested in the switching mechanism used in the 2nd genration as opposed to rocker style on the 1st genration.

Dan decided a while back not to sell the 75 w model to the general public. I got mine from another CPF member. Check the B/S/T Forum as one periodically comes up for sale. Mine is a daily user, and is a very practical light, unlike many of the "wow" items that run for 6 minutes then need to be recharged.
With time, something brighter and practical will be developed. New battery chemistry and better ballasts make this highly likely.
Patience is tough, but it really avoids buying into the "light of the month" club.
Speaking of which, do they not make the 75W anymore?
They only offered a one time Group Buy on the Barn Burner 75W ballast spotlight using the Philips DL-50 FatBoy bulb. Then there was an opportunity for those who bought the preceding 50W group buy a chance to upgrade to the 75W parts...but the available numbers of these are extrememly limited.
Based on how well they perform, it is a prized light to hold onto. I'm not sure that there will be a better performing bulb & ballast combo to come along. Dan from XeRay is in a better position to know more about what the future holds.
Your offer is really tempting, but I ONLY have one and it took me months of waiting to get it from another CPF´r. It´s a delight and don´t want to let go. I´m sure if you´re patient you´ll end up with one. Be sure to check custom BST often. I´ll also keep you in mind and alert you if I can. Good luck!!
