RARE! Someone is selling a AEL Durastar fixture, but in 175w metal hailde! « on: December 06, 2017, 03:06:05 PM » Author: lightinglover8902
This is probably rare to have a AEL Durastar in metal hailde, they are usually in HPS.

Good find! Interesting that it has what looks like a L5-15 or L5-20 in the side entry location. Maybe uses a special arm mount and then twists on?

Aaand they already ended the auction despite there being 10 still available. I was hoping it would stay up for a few months so I could get one eventually. I have always wanted one of these.  Sad

That sucks...

Sidenote, I just saw an old post on people talking trash about these from way before my time. I bet most would have a far friendlier opinion nowadays considering the current lighting environment...

Oh, you guys have no idea. We all trash talked these things back in the day because they're on the far extreme end of the ugly side. Add to that the unrelenting onslaught of HPS infestation nuking classic MV lights. Even MHs weren't immune to the spread. CMH or Quartz they both get nuked for CRI22 sickly pinkish hue orange light.

The consensus around here then was if HPS want to spread like a plague don't do it with ungodly ugly fixtures that was the Durastar 2000 series. Use retrofit bulbs instead.

Why I like LEDs on top of other lighting tech?

LED brainwash? No, people uses them cuz they work well for them.

LOL HPS was in my town long before tis sight even came to be... so i never noticed a "spread" there is many many mercury fixtures around aswell, both residential and city owned, and the only LED's we have are some post top lights downtown (which are basically useless as they're overpowered by 250W HPS on normal poles, i assume the LED's are just there for decor) metal halide is basically non existant aswell as LPS. and the fun part is most the mercury lamps are clear, so my towns a fun assortment of greens and oranges.

We aleady know that the AEL Durastar is obliviously a "ugly" fixture. But this super rare to have this in metal hailde, which I found the listing. I wonder if they made these with MV lamps, that will be soooooo rare!

If they did not, you could always fit a MV ballast in it and be the cool kid on the block with an ugly MV durastar  Wink
