    I've used Hortilux for my 400w, and just ordered a 600w Hortilux as well. They have a good spectrum,
    but they're a bit more pricey than your standard HPS. Is there a difference? I don't know, it would be
    hard to tell. but the brand of HPS bulb you choose probably has less to do with your results than light
    intensity (1000>600>400) and alot of other factors. There's nothing wrong with buying an HPS bulb
    that costs $20 less than the rest of them.

    The hortilux dual spectrum super enhnaced bulbs are probably the best in my opinion. They have both blue and red in the bulb using the right mix of colors to get best gvains from the plant. pricey though can be few hundred for 1000 watt bulbs under $200 for 600 watters

    Do you mean the new Hortilux Super Blue 1000w bulbs that have a 600w HPS and 400w MH inside one bulb? Those look awesome. I
    wish I had a 1000 watter to try one out. I've seen them as low as $130.

    As far as the regular Hortilux Super HPS enhanced bulbs, they run around $85-95 depending on wattage.

    I run 650 watts. 400w Hortilux MH Blue and 250w Hortilux Super HPS for veg, switch intensities for flower. These seem to have the best spectrums in my opinion.

    Is the 600w shown in the pic the size you use, or do you use 1000w's also?

    Unless I'm missing something, Hortilux is only making a 1000w Super Blue. I would like to see them put it out in the lower wattages.

    i dont think so at-least i couldnt find them - anybody have any success from the life light pulse start metal halide 3k - it has a superior spectrum to the super blue and is supposed to be the bomb:joint:

    I use this with the NeXgen 400w/600w ballast. Great results so far. Side by side next to a cheap ballast and they are about 30% brighter! ( using the same bulbs )

    I run the 400 and 600 and 1000 watt super hortilux bulbs with enahnced spectrums so yeah they do have them lol look better you ll find them. Its kind of like when people say they don't make 600 watt mh bulbs only conversion but thats not true either.

    I think you're getting the bulbs mixed up.
    Eye has Super HPS enhanced spectrum bulbs that come in all sizes, but they also have a new bulb
    called Super Blue, which is a 400w MH and a 600w HPS inside of one bulb. As far as I know it only comes in 1000w.

    If I only had one ballast I'd definately look into those dual arcs that FF mentioned, but I'm a giant proponent of mixing true hps&MH bulbs.. I started with Hortilux, but when I bought some cheap complete kits from Westburne Electric, they came with standard bulbs.. So I tried them out, and realized there wasn't any noticable difference whatsoever.. Now I wouldn't buy any lighting equipment from a hydro-shop..
