      Comments about Impact FEL Lamp (1000W, 120V):

      I had recently bought a pre-owned budget 1k off a friend who complained that it kept flickering and going out after 10 minutes of use. I got the head for dirt-cheap, and then took it apart to look for any shorts. Couldn't find any. So my next step was to try a replacement bulb, and these Impact lamps were half the price of any others out there, so I figured I wasn't risking much if they didn't solve the issue. Guess what? They totally did. Comparing the filament in these with the one that came with the 1k head, these are much better, very uniform, and after replacing the lamp, I fired up my cheap light, and it burned flicker free for about an hour test, and I celebrated my super-cheap addition to my budget G/E kit. I have yet to see if their life-span lives up to the 100hrs. that I believe is estimated, but for the price, it isn't a problem to order a few and have on hand.

                I cant describe to you how amazing this light bulb is. It is as bright as a 1000w should be and clocks in right at 120v, the standard. It's a hot bulb in more ways then one.

                But for real, it is a pretty basic bulb but it works.

                              The headline pretty much says it. They work and they're cheap. They do blow out fairly frequently though (even with proper handling), so make sure you always have extras on hand.

                              We ordered a bunch of these for our Lowel light kit. As with many hot lights, these are pretty sensitive to shocks and bumps when hot, but other than that, they are very good. The consistency of temperature is very good between the batch we ordered. The only hickup we had that one out of 4 of these bulbs had a broken filament. Fortunately BH shipped a new bulb next day at no charge.

                                      I use these lamps on my Lowel DP hotlights.

                                      Pros: Provides bright light with consistent color.

                                      Cons: Very fragile, especially when hot.

                                              I mean what can you say about a bulb? I have tried others and these seem to be the longest lasting and take a beating better than any other brand. I would buy them by the bushel.
