New Improved Fresnel X
The new Fresnel is now 7″ as opposed to 5″ and has an added lens in the back that increases the output by twice as much.
The front lens is also bigger for wider coverage without changing the front diameter of the mount for barn doors. To focus the light you spin the outer Instead of pulling forward.
