    Im not sure how good these will be but going from last year there were some issues with both heat and water, I do know they were working on improving this design, so not sure if these are still an issue

    I had the black technicolour ones last year and of the 21 strings, I had multiple failures on all but around 6. Some would have intermittent problems, some had failures and when I replaced the offending node, another one would go out. In the end I ended up getting my money back from Ray. Now I have been reading that there is a new design, but I don't know how it performs.

    Cheers

    I was hoping the SMD version would of had a clear epoxy covering the LED. I had some failures last year and Ray has replaced them with the new version but have not tested them outside yet.

    I thought I had seen somewhere that the SMD was a newer more water resistant version.
