    Any pros/cons to this manufacturer for path lighting?

    Any ideas if this style will have too much upward lighting for a walkway? Looks like no top shade would allow more light to go up and catch people's eyes....anyone agree/disagree? Anyone use a similar style with good results?

    Sorry no one jumping into offer you some help. I have never used the fixture. Haven't talked with anyone who has used for any length of time to give you any informed opinion. hard to say on glare issue. The best advice I could give you is to look it at night. Are you looking to replace these??? did you install them?? Just curious why you're asking about them. Do tell :)

    I have a chance to purchase them. Good deal :
    12 of them +
    12 stakes
    12 capsules
    100ft cable
    300w transformer
    photo eye
    all for $450.

    Just not sure that the style is right....but then again the extras are still worth it.

    Progress lighting is about the same as Malibu!! Run, very fast from it!! The fixture that is pictured is a glare bomb and would not be a proper path/spread light.

    Thats not something I would install unless I was building a runway in my yard. They whole idea of the "shades" on other lights is to minimize the glare and add style to the light.

    Never heard of progress lighting tho. If Paul says its like malibu you should high tail it out... 450 aint a good deal on malibu quality stuff
