    Hey guys, if you don't know who grandmaster level is he's a canadian grower/youtuber and creator of the death bubba kush. he posted a video today saying HLG is sending him a light to run against HPS in his room which will be flipping to flower in a few days. He doesn't specify but I assume they are going to be quantum boards. I know theres lots of side by side threads on here but video documentation is always good and I'm sure he'll do an excellent comparison so if you're interested make sure you sub up and follow along!

    id have to guess its the HLG550 unless they are letting the Elite out of the labs

    It is the ELITE...... There will be a few cosmetic differences from the production unit but he will be able to upgrade that part of the light in 2-3 weeks ( just custom billet hangers lol). Also the driver will also be custom as well in production units. Same drive current and all that just cord length modifications and such. Can't wait to see our hard work put to the test. The Elite puts to use our specific QB lens combination I've been working on since the QB project began. Even coverage with adjustment. You can cover a specific area 4'-5' wide at different heights. You can cover a 5' wide area as close as 18" and as high as 40"+ with the same even coverage. The outside edges of the canopy will have 80+% of the PPFD of the center in a non reflective area! I'm very proud of this light and I hope the price point, performance, and aesthetics make this light a true champion.

    Thanks everyone for supporting us and we really do appreciate our customers and fans. You guys have helped us bring our fixture production to the U.S. and your support has driven us by not only confirming that we do indeed have a good product but also you have given us inspiration to keep trying to find ways to offer higher efficiency lighting at affordable prices.

    What will the price be on production units? I would love to run this next to my hps as well for the bigger tent. Just need to save some pennies the recent additions have wiped me out lol including the QB for the veg closet.

    Don't hold me to it lol. It will be between 1299-1499 MSRP really depends on bulk driver cost and assembly time. We well of course make it as affordable as possible.

    It's going to be a little higher wattage but higher efficiency as well.

    The ELITE will be over 2.5 umol/j at up to 740 watts. The spread is adjustable and it uses our chosen Ledil optics for an amazing coverage. It's deigned for linear overlap where we control the light spread twords the isles but allow plenty of overlap along the canopy to ensure really good penetration . Imagine a runway of light. MSRP isn't decided and we may run a limited time early bird special for RIU members for a month before we release to our retailers thus locking in the MSRP.

    It's a pretty slick light, I think you have a winner @robincnn and @Stephenj37826.

    Wouldn't mind taking one for a test ride.

    I'm in the market to light up about 200 square feet of grow space too it looks like. I'm curious if this may be the most cost effective, efficient way to do it. @Stephenj37826 you mentioned some hardware getting out into the hands of growers for testing? Any word on when us peasants can get a look at the goods? I'll settle for grainy cellphone pics :P
