Hey all,

Looking for a decent LED pin spot, I've tried a couple from Amazon and none where that good. However at the last wedding they bought some along that were stupidly bright but sadly were unbranded and I've not been able to find them anywhere.

So yeah links please for any decent ones that you've used/seen before :)

...i know the horse has bolted but... should have took a few pictures. One of us could have used one before and snapped back with a quick reply for you. Sorry I'm not much help either.

I got given one of those ADJ 3W LED pinspots.. that's a bit crap too. But in saying that I have some flat pars that have 3w leds in them and when I use that (as a single led with the others taped over) it's much brighter and much better at lighting a mirror ball

If it sounds like a gorilla is trying to escape, turn it down.

It was a black rectangle with a big lens on one end about 12x12x20cm, with the top corners slanted at 45dg with no mounting options that I could see. Oh and a euro plug.

Could have been a makeshift 10w domestic flood light that has been adapted(?)

Its a flood not a pinspot though isn't it?

I was looking recently and came to the conclusion that everything in my price bracket was rubbish. Did look at building my own. Which was viable just need the right housing.

..dont worry, it's that time of nite!

The picture was more to show the type of unit that MAY be rigged to build a pinspot with a fairly decent output and with a bunch of colours to pick from. You might even be able to stuff it in a Birdy of a par36 and get the spot you're after...

Nah none of those are bright enough and the beam is too wide. This thing was a straight beam.
