Any of the lasers, there isnt a lot between them , Solaris, Sirius, PBIR l , I use a wraith , that comes with 2 different lens's.
Adjustable mount helps, but you can get round it tape and a bit of ingenuity .

Unless youre wanting to shoot at 500 yards , any of these will shine further than you need on spot.

There are many good quality IR torches out there that don't cost a fortune. Personally, I use a Solaris SRX with my 007 and 019 spotter. This allows me to see at distance well over 400+ yards. It depends on what you want to shoot, ie   you won't need one too powerful for rats or rabbits.

I was thinking of getting the tracer adjustable torch mount ( bit like a ball joint method ??) because it’s sometimes hard to have the IR in line with the line of view ??

Looking to use it more for fox’s 

Then I would say you won't go far wrong with a Solaris SRX with the variable dimmer. As mentioned, I have tried quite a few top end IR's and in my opinion the SRX is about the best. Plus a five year warranty as well.

The Clulite A63 mounting kit is a fantastic bit of kit. I have been using one for many years with various IR & standard torches.

Hello, I have used many I/R torches over the years, remember the 501 b ? Cannot say much about those mentioned but out to 250 yards my L L TR 38 on the CZ 455 and Mk 1 photon is good, I did buy a second hand one off here but cannot remember model ? The older version by Ian sorrel ? Ir lightbuilds ,  3 modes, I was going to put this on a Photon X T , what difference are the laser I/Rs ?   Steve b that must make your 019 do 250 plus yards ?

Well, I'm viewing tree tops at a known range of 400+ yards, but only in perfect weather conditions.

Hello, that is more than I expected, will have to try my TR, cheers

As mentioned, it was a perfectly dark night, no mist/fog etc. And the tree tops are slightly blurred, but I was pointing out just how good the Solaris SRX is.

Sorry guys so where are we with reference what is the best IR for a pard 008 because I Suppose I need a laser Model for this scope ?? I’m told the more light you throw at these scopes the better. ???

Well going by the success I had with my PARD 007, I would suggest a Solaris SRX. Not the cheapest, but, by far, the best.

I’m getting the impression it’s between the SRX or the black ruby Dark engine?? What about the wraith Ir

From what I can gather there are no Solaris 's about , the Black ruby will mean dealing with Clive Ward , who will tell you he has stock , but doesnt really, then ignore you while you try to get refunded.
I have the Wraith, and think its the Bees , but Im not sure if Ludicrous has stock, best drop them a line, get both lens's if I was you.

It has built in dimmer like the Solaris too.

I am also looking for the same as Doubur so the SRX is looking good for me.

 I have just got an Ignite X50 delivered yesterday so not tried it yet. Wish I had seen this thread before.

To be honest I’m still torn between A few of them ? one the Dragonfly IR as two of my mates have them and they are either too tight to buy something new / better or they are as good as they say They are ? And also Two others the wraith and the Solaris SRX ???  But what isn’t helping is that there out of stock  So I’m told ? So though I’ve had some great advice it seems I can’t one at the moment because of stock issues...
