Thread: Golight remote control lamps

  1. #1

    Golight remote control lamps

    Anybody using these?
    I know you can buy cheaper ones off Fleabay and the likes, but are these the answer to frozen hands out the window or holes in the roof ?

    hello malx I have a genuine go light on top of my Freelander fantastic piece of kit visible at 20 meters in broad day light. they are a little slow compared to hand help lights but a valuable piece of my kit non the less

    I had one but moved it on as I couldn't get on with it - too difficult to control, it just wasn't sensitive enough so it ended up whizzing v this way and that, lighting up the ground, sky, pretty much everywhere except where I wanted. Foxes must have thought I was some kind of mobile disco....

    I now use a cluson lamp with the suction base fastened to the sunroof which is slid back six inches. If you don't have a sunroof I'd still go for a cluson or similar - and avoid cold hands by wearing gloves!!

    My old man has one (not a Golight but similar) but not a great light, although it is controllable. Just very handy for lamping on your own. Ideally the Golight would be a much better quality lamp beam-wise.
    I've always swithered about just cutting the hole in the roof, I'm not bothered about the truck,I'll have her until she id beyond repair, but I swear the wife would forget the lamp was there and clatter it in a multi-storey.
    I'll get a look at your Cluson jobby in a couple of weeks Paul, does Mike Davies sell them ?

    I use a Lightforce hand held, and I looked at getting the suction mount and handle, but it's a fair price compared to a Cluson lamp and mount setup. leaving the Lightforce as a handheld as well.

    go for it bud.save up for the sucker thing and scour the sales threads on the forums and evilbay.

    i just found the control of the lamp was carp and both me and my shooting buddy then (DAVE) was that it would have been better with more control of the speed and direction, sometimes we would overshoot the target and by the time you got back to where it was it had gone.................So the lamp..................went.
