Can anyone tell me how much difference there is in light, brightness and distance between the roo and lightforce spots in the 170mm range? mainly looking at halogen in long distance.

cheers.

thanks for reply, nearly all reference to roo vs lightforce is on the 240 LF vs the 220 roo.
My question was on 170/180mm.

I am after real life comparisons.


cheers

I've tried the smaller version of the lightforce aswell, gives out the same light compared to roo lites - no difference.

but the lightforce was stronger (durability), could take a hard hit and still be in one piece (good for 4wding).

The only reason why I ditched my roo lites was because, after a deep water crossing there were water inside the lights. I went to the same water crossing, with the lightforce, but even faster through water - not a drop of water inside.

Roo lites - bargain, but won't last you long if you plan to do long time 4wding.

Lightforce - reliable (piece of mind).

I would be having a look at the relay, if you have too much power draw you may have melted/shorted it. Also make sure you check the fuses.

2 weeks between problems makes me think they are unrelated - i.e. it will need two fixes. The root cause might be the same for both though.

As for light i can't say but for durability you can't go past the lightforce the number of times i have droped a hand held light from the roof of the ute with no damage is amazing.
