Do LEDS work for bowfishing?

LED Lights for Bowfishing LED floodlights generally only come in two colors: cool white which is more blue and roughly 5000 kelvin, and warm white which is 2700-3000 kelvins. I highly recommend warm white for bowfishing if you want to use LED lights. It’s more yellow and penetrates the water better.

How many lumens do you need for bowfishing lights?

Bowfishing lights are typically 100 lumens per watt, and the standard bowfishing light is 100 watts. Based on this, bowfishing lights need to have a minimum brightness of 10,000 lumens each. We recommend mounting a minimum of 2 Swamp Eye lights on the front of the boat and 2 more lights down each side of the boat.

Can you run LED lights off a generator?

While you can use a generator to power 120VAC LED lights, it is important to know that the voltage and amperage in all generators fluctuate greatly as the generator powers up and powers down. These power fluctuations will absolutely kill the LED driver in any high intensity LED light.

What does AMS stand for in AMS bowfishing?

AMERICAN MADE~ We may well live in a world market today but, at AMS, we believe that part of our mission is still to create jobs right here in America. So, we’re proud to say nearly all of AMS products are made in the USA!

What is an HPS light?

High pressure sodium vapor (HPS) lights, similar to LPS lights, are a specific type of gas- discharge light (also known as a high intensity discharge, HID or arc light). The principal difference between low and high pressure sodium lights is the operating pressure inside the lamp.

Why do my lights flicker when using a generator?

If your energy use edges towards capacity, your generator may drop frequency and voltage. As your energy usage varies, the generator’s voltage could fluctuate, causing lights to flicker.

Can a generator cause a power surge?

Most generators have specific fuel requirements and using any type of fuel outside of those parameters can cause operational issues, including surges.

How high should bowfishing lights be?

The downside to low profile bowfishing platforms is that the bowfishing lights are typically pretty close to the water, especially on the smaller boat hulls. This can limit the amount of spread you get from your lights as it is recommended your bowfishing lights are at least 30 inches above the water.

Will LED lights work on a generator?

What is the best bowfishing boat light?

Our Swamp Eye Light Bar and Mini Swamp Eye Submersible are two of the best bowfishing lighting options when looking for a bowfishing boat light setup. The color tone adjustability of the Swamp Eye Light Bar is second to none, while the extreme resilience of the Mini Swamp Eye Submersible allows it to shine in the harshest of conditions.

Why choose swamp eye led bowfishing lights?

Our Swamp Eye LED bowfishing light bars can easily adjust to any water clarity at the touch of a button. Moving along a scale from warm to cool white, our LED bowfishing lights can handle anything from muddy to clear water and everything in between.

Can you run bowfishing lights on a generator?

The ability of your bowfishing lighting to be flexible on power is related to the long run duration associated with being powered by a generator, and the quietness associated with being powered by batteries. It’s crucially important to learn how to run bowfishing lights on a generator if you want to compete in the all-night bowfishing tournaments.

Why choose GTx series bowfishing lights?

Thanks to our custom designed reflectors, our GTX series lights are capable of flooding large areas with plenty of high-intensity white light. Despite their brightness, they also have a low amp draw, which means you can easily get in a full night of bowfishing without the need for a generator (available in 120V only).
