malibu sold what sells at x price. they sold what most folks at big box would pay, max, for a premium light- thier copper spot. Yes, we start above that and go up. Yes, there are millions of malibu systems out there, and probably only a few hundred thousand pro-systems. the masses have thier opinion of landscape lighting on the bulk of what they see.
none of that is toms fault. but he is here initially to sell off closeout malibu fixtures, so I guess a little bit of malibu bashing is to be expected. but then you guys bash some pro quality stuff too on other threads. myself included.
Good luck again tom.
