What is the coverage supposed to be for flower on that light ?

I have minimal info on it. Willing to sell it to a few testers at cost + shipping if I have to. I've complained to all my wholesalers for long time to bring in affordable LED"s and finally said fuck it and brought in the Spider Farmers myself, sold quite a few Sf2000 and SF4000 but there's some things that as business about them I didn't like but biggest is having a national wholesaler 30min away from me to deal with and complain about if there's any issues. Also does come with a 5 year warranty.

From what I can tell they appear to be passive-cooled. Also they have UV warning labels and the spectrum shows they have the 300 plus NM spectral range. I couldn't tell from the pic but it did look like they had the diodes for UV? These look like really decent lights and I would definitely purchase some for the price if I did not have the HLGs already.
The driver frame and the led bars run way cooler than the Spider Farmers which would get super hot at least to touch.

UPDATE!!!

Amazing results with new lights. 600Rspec blow 600H out of the water and no issue with calcium necrosis!! I do believe the added red spec and the UVA have fixed that problem. Shit is the healthiest it has ever been!!

Hey there l was checking out your shop, in BC? Right? Do you ship to Ontario? And a question.... wouldnt 2 sf 2000 be better than an sf4000 as you could spread boards a bit? Cheaper too! Just wondering how to brighten up my grow and expand it about 4x. And not die with the cost. The phantom 440s look nice but too expensive atm. Liked your shop, looking for local Jacks dealer. My shop doesnt carry it. Shipping costs to Ontario?

Sup gang? I'm still a dinosaur using good ole MH/HPS lights and never tried led yet. Any suggestions for replacing my 400watt MH lights for veg? This would be for veg only and want something comparable to a 400 watt MH or better.

I'm not to up on the latest LEDS but somebody here will pipe in for sure. There sure is a huge variety nowadays.
I use only LED for veg. Works very well. I use the strips of LEDs that gang together.

I looked at their pre-assembled boards, it looks like they’re recycling stuff from Alibaba, right down to the PPFD chart:

You cannot go wrong with HLG. Look for any fixture about half the wattage of your HPS/MH. The 600W Rspec are what I use, awesome lights. They also come in a 300w (600w HID replacement). The add on UVA bar is worth it also if you want to get them as well.

HLG has great customer support. Like a noob, I drove in some screws too hard and it cut through the coating and grounded a panel off of to my frame. Support was able to tell me what happened and how to fix it in 5 minutes.

I use the r spec for both veg and flower. I really don't see the reason why you would buy the blue spec.
I agree any 5k 4k with 660 will grow and flower pretty sure 3k is sweet spot no 660nm required. Same as 6500k for grow only. Enough blue in it. Can flower with 660nm l believe. If l were to make own ld go 5500k plus 660nm about 20 to 1. I think you could push hard with that.
