GE FS4 Starters

Apparently, the latest version isn't plastic, it's actually metal again! Found these at Fred Meyer, picked up a couple packs since I've got several 4' preheat fixtures as of now.

Hmm I like that they're metal! I wouldn't expect great quality from them but hey, at least they're metal and look good from the floor!

I was really surprised to see metal ones too, I almost thought they might be old stock but not in this package! Granted, my local Fred Meyer and Walmart both have new old stock 2004-2011 design sleeve GE fluorescents in odd sizes. Walmart has F15T12 Kitchen & Bath in the new sleeve design that's non-Ecolux, and not cheap modern looking either, looks like a late 90s/early 2000s etch! I didn't buy any but if they had been Daylight or Chroma 50 I would have.

Nah this is definitely a new package ddesign. The older packaging was yellow and the starters were usually "HN" branded and plastic. The plastic ones are OK in closed fixtures like an undercabinet light but any fixture where the starters are visible from the floor they gotta be metal IMO. Just looks cheap otherwise. Only thing I like about plastic is that the whole starter glows when it's firing. Kinda cool. I have some transparent green Leviton starters too that I got from a trade with Joe when I went to Ontario in 2014. Really cool!

I have one of those green Levitons from Nick in my 3-lamp 1950's Guth preheat 4' troffer. Starts a Philips F40T12/DX Alto.
