    Im thinking this may fall into the vendor (BRS), discontinuing not the actual manufacture. Many vendors/distributor will "discontinue" items that dont sell. Remember money out on product sitting on shelf is money tied up and not making money in for a company.

    Just received confirmation from maxspect that the recurve series is being discontinued for lack of interest. I think it has to do with the double price point compared to the Razor X's.

    It is a great idea and light, in my opinion and everyone should pick up the leftovers when they go for half price. I picked up the 48 inch Recurve for half price. It was cheaper than the 4ft version of the Razor X!

    They priced it way too high for what it is.

    You're right. But it's an awesome light and eliminates the spotlight effect of led pucks with the side leds.

    You can pick one up at half price 600 bucks if anyone has inventory left. I got the last one from BRS for 50%off

    Agreed. Too high of a price. But the light is awesome, eliminates the spotlighting effect with those side adjustable lights.

    4 pucks on a 48 inch fixture gives plenty of light with the side leds. I also love the warm whites with the cool whites.

    You can pick one up 50% off remaining inventory of online stores. That's a good price point. I got the last one from BRS for 600.

    Dear all,

    We have not discontinued the Recurve line, in fact, we're still having a lot of customers around the world interested in this product line, and its uniqueness is still sought after by many hobbyists.

    Just because our US distributor CoralVue choose to not carry this line anymore, it doesn't mean we have discontinued this line.

    I hope this would clear things up a bit.

    Thanks.

    Maxspect still makes the light, CoralVue has chosen to discontinue carrying it in the US is all.

    Exactly, thanks. In fact the Recurve is still being sold around the world right now. It's unfortunate that our US distributor has decided not to carry this line anymore.

    I love the light. The side Leds are a great idea, and eliminates the spotlighting effect. also 4 pucks in my 4 ft recurve is alot of light along with the side leds.

    I love it. I don't understand why it didn't do well in the US. The side Leds are a great idea and eliminates the spotlighting effect of other Puck centered leds.

    I have the 4 foot version and it's great. The price might have been a factor. But I got it on sale.

    the light is cool, Just too expensive. i would have gotten 2 of the 36 in fixtures if they were a couple hundred cheaper, went a different route in the end.
