PROFYR has set a new benchmark in its class. With a build quality and tactile precision normally associated with a premium tactical riflescope it is redefining expectations. You want power? Consider this. The PROFYR 5000 delivers 5000 lumens with 100 CRI.

PROFYR chose a HALOGEN bulb. Why not HID or LED?
Despite common beliefs and perhaps wishful thinking not even a 100W HID has the output of the HELLFYR bulb. The reality is the majority of ebay HID kits are just Chinese junk and grossly exaggerated specifications for the ballast and worse still are the bulbs which are best just thrown in the rubbish bin.
Ideally, you need to see maximum accurate detail, particularly if it is a mission critical scenario. You do not want washed out or missing colours, harsh shadows or unnecessary glare or a beam pattern with artefacts.
HID & LED or any light source with a typical 5000K rating is less effective than the 100 CRI (colour rendering index) halogen due to the Tyndal effect of their propensity to scatter light in atmosphere contaminated by dust, smoke, moisture or other particulate. This phenomena is often observed as a blue bias glare or fog type bounce back to the viewer resulting in less detail and distance being achieved.
A halogen bulb of equivalent brightness and volume will always be superior in this regard as technology currently stands. The only exception to this is a short arc type bulb however the extremely high cost and running costs (bulbs) are more in the realms of military or government agency budgets.
