Lots of people are now removing their 8 foot fitting. There are some schools that have requested that i start removing them when i can due to the price of the lamps. This is not something i want to do but i am going to run with it simply so the replacments can be switch start. I am going to a school on monday where i am removing 2 8 foots from a classroom and replacing with Cat 2 2X70W Surface switch starts. They will be using more electric than the old 125Ws lol but this is what people seem to want! If next year Switch Start is banned by the corrupt EU i will be presurving the 8 foots. There is no way i am replacing them for
In conclusion 8 foots are good!
