I am 99% sure that this tube was made in still existing post-soviet lamp manufacturing plant, because even tho it was made in 2007, the construction looks identical to soviet tubes. The filament is the same shape and size, the mount is same size, shape and construction, and the clear gap is the same size as in old soviet tubes. The color temperature is also identical to soviet LB tubes. Nice tubes, I am glad I bought at least 3 of them when I found them to buy. I am sure that they still make these tubes to this day, but to find them in stores is almost impossible, because 5 foot fixtures are now moraless retired and the production is stopped. you can not find ballasts for 80 watt tubes to buy. The tubes if they are sold, they are sold as spares for old fixtures. Very bright tube I should say.

Verd a ray classic.
May all the great lighting technologies have their place in history.
My idol is Mylene Farmer, deal with it.
New lighting technologies is a pity fest everywhere you look. From LEDs that last only for two months, to a never-ending global starvation of t8 fluorescent tubes.
