    Fuck yeah that's a great deal. Sounds too good to be true though. Is it self ballasted? I think the largest I have seen was 250w. Got a link?

    Im thinking your going to find out thats an equivalent wattage. Bet even still yes thats a good price. I think I paid about $13 for my 42W CFLS (150W equiv). Peace

    Where do you find them EVEN that big? The biggest that I've ever come across is the 26w at Wal-Mart.

    300watter, that's hella big. I searched for one earlier this morning and had found one for around 69 bux. I forgot the site though cause they said that they were sold out. It looked huge in the pick though. The site link said green in there somewhere.

    I agree.

    Go to Home Depot. They have 42w for $9 each. You can also get a 4 pack of 23w for $5. Best prices I have seen.


    The really big CFL's just cost too much damn money.

    LM what does it show as the actual wattage on that bulb? It sure is a big one. Take a look at Tripsicks Micro Medical Cab in the gallery. He has a pic of his 250W CFL in there. Peace

    Hey Mum, that is a great deal! And man, that's a big ass spiral CFL. Thinkin about it, I've never seen that large of a spiral CFL, it looks kinda fragile :icon_scratch:


    Ok boys and girls, whip them out, the CFLs I mean, its measuring time! The one on the picture below is a 200W next to a 1.5 liter bottle, which I thought was pretty big.... I dunno, still looks kinda small compared to your giant spiral CFL...
