    Want to light up the night and check out some of the fields around our house at night. Looking at the Lume Box at 1500 lumen per box. but i also like the Polar Pro. They both have pros and cons. I am worried about the Lume Box being heavy. Also wondering if i can instal 4. Two facing forward and two facing down. Anyone one have any experiance with either product?

    yes. the price is a little steep, but those things are bad ***. Hoping to use it to catch some deer in the corn field this fall

    I have lume cubes they are killer. Only thing I don't like ( which is something that no one makes ) but I would like to have more of like a helicopter spot light for higher altitudes.

    But lume cubes ftw.

    I have a Luma Cube that I use for video in my other hobby but I've had much better luck with very powerful flashlights (LEDs) to be honest with you. I use a GoPro mount with a handlebar mount I rigged in reverse and it works like a champ.

    You can get a helluva flashlight for a hundred bucks.

    Tactical lights are a whole hobby in and of itself and there are entire forums dedicated to just flashlights, believe it or not.

    Yes, I have several sure fires. It seems all of my hobbies are expensive. I am not sure i want to use those. they are very heavy. i am hoping that the Lume Cubes are lighter.

    I have lume cubes. They r super bright but will kill flight time by about 5 mins mabey a little less & the added waight does make the bird a tad sluggish but not too bad. Lastly be careful when landing, ur bird WILL depend a lot faster so be careful

    I will agree the extra weight will decrease the flight time a little bit. But it depends on what you are shooting.
