With a Laser theres a lot less IR glow emitted from the torch head itself, even more so than something closer to the visible spectrum range as these are at the other end and highly visible from the torch itself.
I have a TR38 ruby, which is prity much the same as the T20 ruby, if you look back at it, its like a brake light at the lens, i have had a few foxes spook with this now a few times (the remainder of the cubs + the previous adults are wiseing up).
I was out with the DP and solaris laser last night, i looked at the laser from 30 yds, the signature is a LOT smaller and maybe not as bright ?, its got to be "less" spook, at one permission it was going over the camber of the second field at over 700 yds last night, which wasnt a perfect n/v night (full moon)
If you do order one, i suggest you get the full powered one, the 3 powered one doesn't seem to have a memory ??? and is a faff to scroll through the mode every time you need full power.
I am told in a few weeks time there will be a dimmer switch available for theses at around £20 extra.
This laser is powerful, clean beam, no bar code, no head wobble, and seems to be a fantastic build quality 5 year warranty ------to press the BEST I/R ive owned and for a "laser i/r" very well priced ---------for people that want the best, this has to be amongst them.
Hi you bought one then Dave, it's a good bit of kit as long as you know what you have and take the necessary precautions, great for valleys were you light up the foreground with other lamps,and you have that dark bit you can't see, just focus down and bingo there it is, it's good that is has a light on it to tell you when it's in use as well, always worried me with the Laserspeed Ir500 i have
Sounds like your wheel barrow is getting full, I know mine is but we love it dont we .
