I have to say, they really got creative designing this fixture. Lots of cool features and stuff but wish they made it out of cast aluminum instead of fiberglass and wish they made the door smooth on the outside instead of lumpy with the external ignitor lol.

I don't like how these are fiberglass too. They wear down, especially under trees, to a raggedy and patchy look. There have been some in use here (3000 flavored) since the 90s with original of very old lamp and they are real chipped and worn.

Yeah there are some 50W ones here in a municipality utility (not electric company-owned) that were installed in the early/mid 90s and a lot have been replaced with Cooper OVZs, OVHs, or AEL 115s (or LEDs in the most recent cases). The fiberglass also becomes brittle overtime and is very brittle in frigid temperatures, so if a fixture has to be relamped in the winter, the housing is could crack/split depending on the grade of fiberglass. Cars use fiberglass too but I'd imagine this doesn't use high-quality fiberglass for the price it costs. These were intended to be used along coastal areas where the salty air would corrode the cast aluminum housings, though here the salty air from the ocean doesn't seem to affect the cobraheads here too badly. Seagull poo is the bigger issue lol. If the bird drops a deuce on a light and it's the middle of summer, once it dries it's as good as paint lol.
