Hmm good points...... Gotta think about this. Thanks.

2 years ago i bought a cowboy 3300 watt continuous florescent lighting.

The light stands are total junk, one stand broke the first time I used it.

Most of my products have a glassy finish, the CFL lighting created allot of glare or reflection.
In the end I was just shooting long exposures with little to no lighting , one 85 watt bulb ...............
My pictures were ok but it sure didn't make my product pop or stand out.

I am going mono lights now and I think its a improvement.

Its your choice, but need to factor in that most of the cheap CFL kits are so cheap they are not worth shipping if you decide to resale them later on.
This is the reason you don't see them listed often.

You might try Craig's list.
But if I was to start over , I wouldn't buy a CFL system just because of there cheap a--
stands.

The type of light you use will have no bearing on the amount of glare or reflection you get. How you use the light does. Camera angle and light angle are what determine reflections and glare.
