Im new to bowfishing and don't want to use a generator. What LED's are the best to run that you can see in the water as good as a qbeam that wont break the bank??

i havent shot over LEDs before but i heard that the white light doesnt do well in muddy water. i know you can tint them a more yellow light and that should help alot. Theres plenty off ebay i think they are 27watt or something like that. I would probably go at least 6 lights to start if I were you. good luck

Hi everyone,

Here is the solution you seem to be looking to eliminate LED reflection. Goto ebay and type in "Carplite" in the main search box. They sell HPS or Green colored filter covers for 50W LED lights. Also have Custom sizes if needed for other types of light frame sizes. I used them and made a world of difference. I bought one at first just to try out and bought ten after that. Got the best worlds of using LEDs with the color of HPS to better penetrate the water and reduce glare. They are made from transparent plexiglass so much much more durable than tint/film. And you can easily remove these in seconds if you want the bright light back for clear water. Much cheaper alternative than going HPS with all the extra bulbs, capaitors, genny, difficult wiring and weight, etc. Hope this helps, just wanted to share what I have found to everyone who had the same issues I had.

Here is the link:
