    Question Old Greenforce?

    A friend has asked us to get rid of his old kit - it hasn't been in the water for 10-15 years, but was put away carefully and looked after well. One thing is one of those Greenforce torches that has a big tube of batteries that clips to your tank - it still works and has a charger and cute Bowstone snake carrying bag and long lump of lead. The bulb is a halogen. Is it worth anything and would it be more popular if the bulb was replaced with an LED version? We have no use for it and I've always laughed at people doing wildlife dives carrying one of these around.

    Sounds like one of the Arrow 12?

    Repalcement batteries are only around 35 from strikealite but the light output is way surpassed by even a €30 modern light
    Remember anything you read on the internet was probably written by some guy sitting at home in his underpants! Including this !!

    Works fine, doesn't need new batteries, just wondered if it would be more attractive with an LED head.

    Arrow 12 with the 50 halogen head . Was ample light from what I remember of using them .
    10 to 15 year old battery s are holding up well . Set of new ones and I say you have a nice torch . Or ever torch base to work with.
    The. 12 battery tube I found v nice and can be mounted loads of places on your kit .
    I used to mount a back up arrow 12 on a bail out cylinder
    Never even know it was there.
    Are they worth out . I don't know . I'd rather take a punt on a green Force than some tat of Ali express lol

    After all driving not always about saving money lol
