What is the beam angle on the ADJ 64B LED PRO? It's not listed on their website.

I found out from American DJ that their 64B LED PRO has a 14 degree beam, and they claim that it is five times brighter than their P64 LED.

does anyone know if there would be a noticable difference between the wiedamark p64 LED cans (183 10mm leds) and the ADJ 64 LED Pros (181 10mm leds)? the wiedamarks seem to be half the price, but i know they have been out alot longer so i must be missing something...

From my personal testing, the Wiedamark seems to have a much wider beam angle, where the AMDJ LED Pro is more focused.  The AMDJ, therefore, SEEEEEMS brighter but I think that it's only b/c all of its light is more focused in a smaller area than the Wiedamark.  Also of note, the colors in general (especially purple and blue) of the AMDJ seem richer to me.

I've compared both of these to an Elation Design 36, and I must say the Design 36 ABSOLUTELY KILLS both of them.  This should be expected though for the price difference (approx. 3:1) right?  At first I was scared of the price, but after comparing, I realized one Design 36 will easily replace 4 AMDJ LED Pros.  The Design 36 is a little bit bigger than a PAR 38 and has the output equivalent to about a 700W tungsten bulb.  I have decided to go with 6-8 of the Design 36's for front lighting.  For back lighting I will stick with the AMDJ LED Pros simply because they look nicer (to me) looking into the can than the Design 36.  The bulbs are smaller and therefore "blend" easier than the large bulbs on the Design 36 I find.  By the way, I am figuring on a max stage size of 16'x24' for my design.

If you're dead set on either the Wiedamark or the AMDJ LED Pro for all of your PAR cans, I think the LED Pro is a better light, but you may need just a few more to cover the same amount of stage.  Just my $0.02.  Good luck!

I thought I'd bump this. Things seem to have changed a lot in the last year.

 I don't know if you got them yet? Its been some time. But the Punch Pro is a good light I've had 4 for a year now and have had no problems with them and used them in 30 shows and 20 photo shoots as FX lights to add color, so they have well over 300 hours on them. Also have used them at home a lot too just getting ready for shows.
They make a good wash with a diffuser on them i use a fluorescent ceiling lens from Home depot with gaffer tape, for less than 6 bucks they work good but a little bit of a dim spot in the middle, but you don't see it on stage as the light from different lights overlap.  Other good thing about them is they only need to use 3 channels. And that saves time in programing and space on your control board.
I am up grading now to all LED for wash and back lighting. and this forum has helped a lot in what i want to get. kind of funny that i found it through Wiedamarks site. Got 4 lights from bill NWFX lighting 2 weeks ago and they are just as bright but not as well mixed(little red ring around the outside)as the Punch pro's and like earlier in this forum he needs to use lock-tight! I will rib him about that,  His new 3watt RBG is a lot better light uses 18 1watt RGB LEDS and the beam is very Bright even looking in them from a 30deg angle left spots on my eyes, Am thinking they are the next light to test but they use 6 channels.
