The new Vanquish CMH light

Been using the new Vanquish 630w CMH light and am loving it so far! Anyone else have any experience with this light or cmh in general?

@HornHead I will be switch to the 3200k when I switch to flower

I have been using CMH as well for years. Nanolux 315, SolisTek c1 315, Sunburst 315, Phantom 315 all cmh are what im currently using . use both Phillips brand bulbs 3100k, as well as SolisTek bulbs 3200k and 4200k. Will be upgrading to a set of Eye Hortilux 315 CMH to see what they bring to the table, there supposedly to be a 1 of a kind CMH bulb that no one else can offer.

I’m a huge fan of hortilux. Y wouldnt u run a chps for flowering?

@Killadruid what is chps

Are you directing this comment towards me? If so i, eventually i want to try CHPS, but for now i have CMH for veg, and Double Ended Hps for bloom. Looking to upgrade to the CHPS 600w kit with big reflectors. Maybe run in conjunction with double ended hps
