    I've been using this line for quite a long time, and have had very good results with the product and the manufacturer. The product line is just like every other quality line, however. You will find some things that could be improved about certain fixtures, and you will find some fixtures that you like above every body elses. I believe that it is one of the best values on the market in terms of what you get for the cost.

    We use primarily cast and kichler. Both are good lines and hold up well and should serve your clients well if installed properly.

    Each fixture has its time and place. All manufactures have thier good and bad.

    One of a kind path lights. No one has the variety that they do.
    I have had some issues concerning the finishes (over time). Some peeling
    and fading. I do not like the wedge lamps (Light bulbs). They are incandescent, therefore they must use a higher wattage (18.5 and 24.5 watts). Uses too much transformer space.

    We've used them a few times. They have a good selection of pathlights however the quality of some of those lights aren't the greatest.(in my opinion)
    In our area those slim stems won't hold up to a tough winter when some plow sludge pushes up to them. Also as go halogen mentioned, those wedge bulbs are a pain in the butt.

    I use Kichler primarily but also use Vista, Escort and others. I have had very few problems with the line and the bench warranty is great.

    and the bench warranty is great.

    How long have they been making benches? Good to know they stand behind them though.:laugh:
