Alan is a good guy, he has treated me well. I will buy from him again. To get to an FX trans, I know that Ewing irrigation sells them, but I do no know if there is one in your area. They also have a 10 year warranty. Ryco's you'll have to look for, and if you'll read my thread on them they have photo-cell issues, but they do have a replacement part available now. If you want to PM me, I can tell you where to get that part. I am not currently installing any more ryco's until I get another year on the 1/2 dozen or so I have out there .

Lightsonlyman has to be with Southern Nights am I right ? Was that you I met at SOLD that day in Hattiesburg ?

I have not seen the Volt trans but I can speak up about the coppermoon unit. Its been a good unit(the new ones are made by Jefferson Electric) for us when we need a budget unit and in these tighter times it seems to be more often. Give Doug a shout on these. He is a great guy to deal with.

When I need a pool and spa rated unit I run to Unique and also if I need an in ground unit.

Still my go to unit when I have a need for custom controls and flexibility I go with the gambino units. I know some of you frown at the price but they are still less than cast units and the half volt steps make a huge difference.

I have had it with MDL issues from any supplier. I have got bad units out of the box from Kichler, Cast and coppermoon. Doug at Coppermoon is the only one who admitted there was an issue with the quality in recent years with MDL and made the switch to Jefferson Electric

Vista and Fx have very similar transformers, the advantage Fx is they are about 50-60 dollars less for a 900 watt for example and have way more room for wire, the other upside is you can load a Fx transformer up to full capicity without having to worry like so many other transformers.
The entire Fx line is now available at JDL I'm being told.

We just made the decision to go 100% Unique on everything we can and we raised our prices across the board.* We are not going to compete on price anymore.* We install a better product and we do things and add value that others don't and frankly can't in my local area.* Our presentation is education and helping our clients realize their need to overcome fixture fixation.* We approach our customers from the standpoint of buying design expertise and looking at the fixtures as merely just tools.* Tools to achieve the perfection they are looking for.* If they are looking for cheap or are still fixated on the fixtures after we try to educate them we will just refer them to another lighting company that "sells fixtures".* So far,* I haven't had to.That being said, from my experience, Unique makes the best transformers I have used, hands down.* I am intrigued with the Gambino unit and knowing Mike, I am sure it is an incredible unit.* Frankly I dont' think his prices are out of line at all for his units.
