70w Sylvania Metalarc lit

I got 6 of these at Restore for 50C each since I have a lot of 70w MH ballasts but not enough lamps. They are pretty high quality, too. Now, I can't believe I am saying this, but I don't really like these. For one, while 3000k looks great on ceramic lamps, it looks kind of "yucky" on these. They also don't seem that bright compared to my other 70w lamps (a 4000k Plusrite 70w ED28 and a few CMH lamps). I might just end up selling these on eBay and using whatever money I get from that to get some 4000k quartz lamps.

Scores like this are quite rare, even at my Restore.

Any machine is a smoke machine if you operate it wrong enough.

Yeah I liked the 3000K CMH lamps over the regular quartz PSMH ones. The Restores here sometimes have HID stuff, and rarely sometimes old NOS lamps. I think some contractors here donated surplus stock to the Restores here since I've encountered stuff like NOS cleartops, powergrooves, and even a NIB cobrahead.
