When we looked at the Wicked Lasers Spyder III Arctic we determined that it was an excellent buy for the money. The Spyder III Krypton throws your beam a higher distance, offers a brighter, more converged focus point and gives a much brighter effect. The problem is it costs a grand for the unit we looked at today. For the price you could have three Arctic 1 watt models and a few accessories to boot.
A more appropriate test would have been on price with the $299.95 Spyder III Arctic 1 watt and the $299.95 Spyder III Krypton 300mW. We aren't going to complain about getting the big daddy model though; it just makes giving you are comparison based on price a bit more difficult.
Looking at the Spyder III Krypon 1000mW as a standalone unit without considering the Arctic model I have to say it is a helluva lot of fun. When people come over the lasers usually come out at some point.
Sure, they are novelty items without a real purpose for most people, but then again, what adult toy isn't.
Editor Note: Lasers can be very dangerous. Use them at your own risk and keep out of reach of children.
