Judges comments

The judges were very impressed with the lighting effects and efficiency of the eW Burst Powercore. "Tremendous throw for only 30W," "excellent narrow beam," and "excellent coverage and control" were all included in individual judging comments. There were concerns, however, over serviceability and color shift at the edge of the beam.
