    I asked if they have received requests for more spread on the 5000ís in spread mode...as I Kinda wish it was wider. The answer was no.

    But was told the spread on the 9000ís is double the spread that the 5000ís have.

    Hmmm....9000ís se out of my budget.

    Two sets of new lenses arrived yesterday......

    Iíve had

    original plastic lens (actually have tow brand new spares), replaced due to crazing

    First run of glass lens, lens separated from plastic mount

    Latest generation of glass lense....hopefully wonít have to replace these

    been patient and supportive over the years of running three set as I really prefer halogen...

    setting up for two years on the road start 2022 just need the lenses to last 1.5 years which is longer than any of the previous lenses.

    Interesting.... Great Customer Service - something u don't hear too often... but for me and the $$ u spend to buy these expensive spotlights (this includes other brands), I probably would have looked elsewhere as this goes against the old saying "You get what u pay for".

    Gives reason for those who go for a cheaper (probably Chinese made) light.

    The lenses on those cheaper lights go yellow in 2-3 years and are then throw away. We do it all the time on the work vehicles - they never learn.

    My Nemesis are prototype units, now on Borosilicate lenses (had a few crack the original lenses) and no issues at all.

    It should be pointed out, the cracking is surface coating and the lights will continue to function almost perfectly with these, just a cosmetic annoyance generally.

    As for wider spread - these things are nothing like others out there - needs a change in set up to optimise performance.

    Re alternatives I've got a set of Halogen light force XGTs on the Defender and have replaced the outer lenses once which improved them although I still don't reckon they are much better than the Hella Rally 2000s that are on SWMBO's jeep, they still impress me when I drive it at night, one of them is so old that it has a H2 bulb.
    I do have a set of LED Cibie Super Oscars that I picked up at Murrumbateman field days last year but I haven't bought anything to bolt them to yet.

    Out of curiosity, the Hella Rallyes are halogen, are still available, are a proven product and seem to be about the same price - so why not use them?

    I have LED and find them harsh and stressful on the eyes. Halogen is different but I canít say what exactly it is that makes them more pleasant.

    Yes I agree on the Ďyou get what you pay forí as the lenses have stood up.

    Given the initial investment FYRLYT have sent replacement lenses straight away and at no time have I been left in the dark. I had to drive My work car around with a lense missing for a couple of weeks.

    Iím still yet to spot another car fitted with FYRLYT. Donít how many units they sell but itís supporting at least two guys so they must sell some.

    Pricing in 4WD accessories is a big influence these days and bolting any set of lights onto the front of a defer is going to be an improvement.

    Iím running one of the first Pre-production sets of Nemesis on my D4, another set on the 90 and a set on the D2.

    Early lenses didnít do so well, and would crack the coating.
    I worked with Paul providing feedback on the conditions and use that caused the issue.

    We then fitted the Borosilicate lenses, and one cracked - it was a flaw in the retaining ring put pressure onto a point on the glass.

    Since then, no issues on any of the vehicles with the new lenses.

    Light output and quality beats anything else hands down. Unfortunately my work vehicles all have LED - and I nearly paid the price for it the other night - dark cow, contrasted against the scrub - full ABS and slide induced to miss it.

    Never have this contrast problem with the Xenophot Fyrlyts. Colour is much cleaner.

    Update on the LED Super Oscars - they are OK but I'm very glad I only paid about a quarter of retail price. They are considerably whiter than the Xenons on the RRS but the length of throw is not as good as the Rally 2000s and I find the white light hard on the eyes.
