SPYDRX PLUS

I wondered what people thought of the SPYDRX plus, I've been thinking about getting one and know a few people on here have experience of them

I'd love to try their lights - for the passive cooling and 2.2 umol/J efficiency. but I think I'd go with two of these instead, just because they'd be easier to handle and set up. You'd have two individual 12 pound lights instead of one 32 pounder. Also you'd have the option of running just one light for times when the canopy is small:

I love my spyders, yields are better than a 1000w gavita DEHPS, great hard buds, I'm a commercial grower who will order them as replacements for the Gavitas 700w & a lot less heat, could be run as a vert set up with high ceilings, can run them 8" over canopy. expensive purchase, but there the real deal.

Agree with jocat. The SpyderX is something to see.

I've been looking at the VYPRX + aswell, at the moment I run double ended dimlux 1000 but like the gavita's they are not.
Jocat is there any difference in the finished product other than density ?

Talking $pyders

Murran, The spyders I have are the physiospec spectrum & the white light they produce is much nicer to work around than the red hps light, the plants responded right away and grow with no signs of light poisoning from being as close as 6" to the canopy, because you want them right on top stretchy strains require the lift every few days, I run a CinX that needs a daily lift & a northern lights cross that only needs it every 10 days..genetics..the trichome density was greater & the trich's stubby with a uniformity I have never seen before, same strains, Iv'e run them under gavitas many times, the trichs taller and more tangled under the HPS. I have all my products lab tested and the potency was the same at 7 weeks under the spyder as i get with 8 under the gavitas, this next batch went 8 weeks under the spyders and it goes out for testing soon, I'll post those results if your interested. one thing to consider is how much less AC is required when cooling a room full of these bad boys vs 1000w DEHPS, and say asta la vista to bulb changes, but the $ stings pretty good. I Just ordered a couple more

Hi jocat,
thankyou for the reply, yes i would be very interested in the lab tests.

I may actually get the VYPRX plus units instead as i think it will suite my space better than the spydrx. Do you have any experience of these? I know they have to be hung higher above the canopy 18" or more.
