in reference to the Bron-Kobold all weather HMi's
Anyone have experience with putting these lights through a rainstorm? it seems like the logical choice for backlighting your rain, since apparently no safety rigs are needed to shelter the light. yet, although theres alot of marketing fluff about them, i have yet to see/read or hear about them being used? is it the cost? unreliability? or ineffectiveness? or are they just simply the obvoius choice, so no paticular mention is needed. also, finding a dealer is like looking for a pinto that's mint. there are only a handful at best. i really want to add one of these to my package in 2007 but would like to hear from actual users b4 i plunk down the serious $$.

side note:
i have a project in 2007 that is in a constant rainfall and cannot afford the time x 5 it takes to safely rig a standard hmi or tungsten for all weather.
