Hi there, I've been looking at these for a couple of days now due to an incident re thread "BRIGHT rear light ?" and I have opted for the Radbot 1000 for now but may change........we shall see.

One thing I have noticed is that when a light has a constant flash even just looking at it on Youtube it doesn't have the same noticeability, if that's the rite word, I think the best, bright or not so bright, are those which have a changing flash that way the drivers will be attracted to it because it's changing.............hope that makes sense.

Thanks for taking the time to do this much appreciated.

Bryan

@slab288 - i think the word is "conspicuity".

FWIW i think my new favorites are the PBSF turbo paired with a danger zone (a-HA!).

Thanks for the vids! I have a few taillights, but the Radbot 1000 is my newest, and favorite. The fact that it includes a good sized reflector meets Ohio law requirements, and also is a nice backup in case it goes out without me noticing, or having a backup on. I also like my Mars 4.0, my PBSF, my cheap Deal Extreme light, and even my really cheap taillight that was part of a front/back set from Nashbar. The front sucked out loud, but the taillight is very visible, I think because it is big. I guess I've been fortunate with taillights.

Since I've learned that Ohio requires a rear reflector, I only want ones with that built in. Fortunately the Radbot meets that requirement, and is also one badazz light.
