A retired commercial Qantas airline pilot agrees 5000K LEDs are not ideal for driving lights...
Hi Paul and David, I am taking delivery of a new VW Amarok V6 Tdi, this week and am looking to fit an ARB Summit bull-bar, soon after. I am most impressed by your FYRLYT models – the theory and the user reports and reviews – makes perfect sense. (I've read everything published on them, on-line).
I am a retired Qantas B737 captain and am fully familiar with the wide vagaries of night vision – especially in rain and/or very much reduced visibility, like taking off in 300m forward runway visual range and the diverse and often inadequate range of aircraft and aerodrome lighting.
My first question is whether you think the 5000 series would best suit my needs? I live in Porepunkah, in NE Victoria, in the alpine region, near Bright. My night driving is mainly on the Ovens Valley country roads and at least once a month down the Hume Freeway to and from Melbourne. Often in rain and sometimes in foggy/misty conditions.
The 5000's seem to better fit the purpose, without going over the top (and I am aware of the issues of bad reflections off road signage). Second question: If the Nemesis 9000 is better suited?
Finally, as an innovator, myself, (see www.jacobsonflare.com) I commend you both on your work and your products – even before purchasing and using them – which I look forward to doing. The hype around LED's, etc, is ridiculous and I applaud you for having had the insight and knowledge to be able to produce a great product, right here in Australia.
