    Which has brighter tritium - Traser P6500 type 2 or Luminox 3001?

    Hi, trying to decide between these two. The Luminox looks like it has longer tritium tubes than the traser and also has better water resistance...but I have read that traser may be conservative on its WR rating for the 6500. Also, in some pictures the Luminox 3001 shows longer tubes and in others it shows shorter ones. What is the deal with that? For example:

    Aren't they identical? I mean...it's the same company producing the tritium tubes, and I'm pretty sure they're both 25mc

    IIRC luminox dumps more phosphorescent material on it

    I'd imagine they are too close to tell for brightness.

    You have to be pretty careful when evaluating photos of lume. It's very easy to use a very slow shutter speed to make even weak lume look fantastic. And unless the two photos were taken under idential conditions, it's like comparing apples and kumquats.

    That said, the lume on my Traser is pretty disappointing in terms of brightness, but what it does is last all night. If the room is very dark, I can still tell the time. But it's not as initially bright as many other SuperLuminova painted hands.
