But i find it very disingenuous to say HGL is winning when the lights are using almost twice the wattage as the other side. 308w versus 575w. Thats like saying my 1000w HPS is winning over 600w without mentioning wattage.
Brother Hybridway2 is matching the lights in the best way to satisfy the actual plants in his garden.
We are seeing the result of each spectrum at similar intensity.
Sure he could turn the HLG up to full blast but then what? Screw it to the ceiling? Raise it to the stratosphere to get a center par reading the plants will actually accept? That surely isn't a well thought out fixture for the home / tent grower.
Plus if you had been following along you would see where the original comparison was supposed to be between 4 HGL 84X and 2 HLG 360 Elite's, not a new unreleased model. I personally am not taking any sides in this and Stephen is a great guy but is sounds like maybe his knees were shaking a bit or why offer up the new unreleased light after test parameters were already chosen?
I wish everyone would just bite their tongue and hold judgment till those running the tests are actually finished budding under them. Then we will see for good or bad for HGL what the outcome is.
And after all that, it's kind of obvious by the thread your in that HGL has a new fixture in the works that will satisfy those looking for a light with a more uniform footprint and a lower cost than the current offerings.
I just don't understand why led has to consistently get people more worked up than even politics or religion
