    Tek informed me that they just did a prototype for a larger 6 and 8 bulb per width 72" fixture.

    So I think this means 16 bulbs x 39W for the 72" long length.

    Hope so, they are really nice hoods but very few places make them longer than 4ft/or 60".

    I do not want 2 smaller 36" hoods either.


    3-5 weeks or so.

    Regards,

    Tom,

    This is right up my alley...Did they give any ETA to actual retail???

    Is it a year away, 2, 3, do you know???

    I am still trying to figure out a good setup for my 180 as well..

    Thanks for the heads up!

    Manager was saying perhaps 3-4 weeks, was not sure.
    I'll wait that long no problem.

    A few bends with the sheet metal bender, getting the spacing right, add the electronics from the CAD layout, and sizing specs, the rest is fairly much the same as the others.

    Hope it has 2 holes a side for the wire quick adjusters(4 total).
    I'll need it for the weight.

    Regards,
    Tom Barr
