    New pathlight design from Vista....

    "optically tuned" Tuffak® lens?

    20W performance with only a 10W lamp?

    Anyone seen these yet to compare?

    Got an email today.

    Gregg,

    No I haven't seen them, but it makes good sense. With path/area lights much of the light gets trapped inside the shade. We have been working on a similar (but different) approach -- curved metal inserts on the path/area lights to efficiently reflect light down and out. You can get significantly better photometrics.

    Looks like a very smart innovation to me. Vista was looking at different lens materials when I was there in June 2009 but this is a big improvement over just changing out the plastic lens. They make a pretty darned good series of brass and copper path lights. This will make them that much more competitive.
