I have already messaged people in the past telling them that 8 foots are still available in 100 and 125w in a selection of colours! It just p!$$es me off! People think they are going to make a few extra quid if they put discontinued when they arent. In a sence it is a bad thing because it will scare people in to changing perfectly good working 8 footers!
