If you ask me if I would do it again? Well probably.... Would I choose a different light after running the lights I have... NO

For 100 each it was a steal and a cool add on but it is just not worth the upgrade for a High End light in our Black water lakes. The cheap lights I have are lights and they do their purpose. I could not justify spending 100's more to have a better brand or brighter light. Our lakes are so nasty that if you tried to scuba for something you will never see your hand touching your mask.


If our lakes were clear then I may justify spending some more cash. At the time I was buying a product that was similar to what MC was using.

It's just holes below the water line :p if I ever do end up with lights I'll be doing all the research I can do ensure they won't leak when I'm done. I'm skeptical but I know it's possible since its been done time after time

I had bulletlines x-600's installed on my previous MC - '07 X2. They looked cool but I'm on the fence about spending that kind of money for something I may use twice during the year. (But I had them installed by the dealership so its a $350+ total deal when all said and done) But for those who are worried about holes in the hull, I never had any leaks/drips.
Alsol, I wouldn't bother if you are in murky water.

Mine are. I'm running in salt and water clarity varies so I went with white.
