    Agreed. I used to use Powerbar and two moonflowers as default show.

    The 25 range is in stock at my local dealer. Would you say they are brighter from memory, as they have a 'cree LED'.
    OK - I've just purchased a 25 (crikey they're hard to get hold of).
    I deliberately got one from the Bay for £80 second-hand, mainly because the moment it arrives it's going to be sprayed with white enamel for a little project I'm working on (see the subscriber's section for more details....)

    One question which I don't seem to be able to find an answer to....are the gobos replaceable in these things or not? It's not a biggy if they're not - would just be nice to know.

    As far as I'm aware you can't change them, all stuck onto one wheel.

    Individually no. But I've got a cunning plan!

    Well, guess what I've just bought. I can't be arsed to check, but I'm sure someone will have suggested it earlier. A Crossfire XP
    Good heavens! My, but it's bright.

    It seems less " violent " than the old Swarms ( although someone at the show agreed with me that the new improved version was the bees knees ) and useful at more functions. It's going out next gig, and I can't wait. I'm confident that it will be an excellent addition to the armoury.

    Highly likely. There's now the nagging feeling that I should have bought a pair, for symetry, and the option to have something else as a centrepiece. That may yet happen.

    However, a certain North West Dealer who advertises his wares on here is doing a " Killer Deal " on Hadron 4-in-1, which bear an astonishing resemblance to the Swarm Wash. Suffice to say, I shall soon have a pair of these in my hands,and Andy ( for it is he, Mr Neen, of Cumbria DJ store ) has been playing with one all week, and proclaims them to be excellent. Mainly due to a 60's gig soon, I have purchased an Equinox Kaleido, which impressed the hell out of me at Liversedge.

    Anybody want a pair of Fusion Max Rollers cheap?

    It did indeed happen. I do indeed now have two Crossfire XPs.
