The Blockbuster 6 Air Cooled Hood was the highest performing reflector after the Luxor 8 but it is much cheaper and its performance was very close. It also doesn’t have the head room problems of the Luxor.
Blockbuster 6 Air Cooled Hood Best Value For Your Money
I own 2 of these and think they are the best value in terms of high performance and price. They are way more efficient than the popular magnum and raptor hoods too.
Very well made and spread and penetration are outstanding. These are fairly large units about 25 inches square and about 32 inches from vent tube to vent tube. The glass swings open easily and seals tightly. There’s plenty of room to get inside at the bulb.
They run very cool. The glass gets only slightly warm and the top is actually cool to the touch. My grow room temps are now 10 to 15 degrees cooler thanks to the Blockbuster and I highly recommend these hoods.
