    I wonder which bulb is on sale here. Would be nice if it is the 20k+.

    To my knowledge they haven't made the 20k in quite a while, the 20k+ replaced the old one.

    How do the Ushio 20k+ compare with Radiums? Color and growth? Also no need to run HQI setting with these bulbs?

    They very similar, the Ushio to my eyes has a tiny bit more violet. They do not ned to be run on HQI ballasts and are fine on mags, e, and HQI. Currently I'm running them on all types.

    I have been running the 400W version for about 6 months too and will agree they look very similar as the Radiums if not almost exactly the same

    $51 w/ CA sales tax so you are helping balance our budget AND supporting a local small business. Steve Ruddy, the owner of CRES, is one hell of a guy.

    EDIT:

    sorry,

    $49.95

    One must assume that you looked at the picture of the second link but did not see it was for a 175W bulb. I checked their site and I don't see any 250W SE Ushio's.

    The devil is in the details and unless you give up the details no one can help you. I see no place in this thread of you stating you are looking for a 250w. I do see you said there is no SE/mogul of which there is. More info gets you more accurate results.

    I buy all of my Ushios through Steve, including 250w SEs, call him, he's a great guy.

    Any of our sponsors should be able to get the bulb as well. After all I think most of them get it from sunlight supply.

    They all do, in fact Steve (sponsor wish list) just has them drop shipped.
