Two simple questions:
Has anyone used the Kino ballasts from "Go Easy Lighting", and how was the experience?
Can you use the fotoflo ballasts on flathead and 4-4's?

Regards

I've had two Go Easy light kits (4x4) for about 6 months. They have performed fine. I like the ballasts as the dim down quite smoothly and you can select 1 to 4 tubes. They seem fairly rugged.

The light heads/barn doors are a bit too plastic - they don't don't feel like they would last a lot of rough treatment but no damage yet.

Using standard Kino Flo tubes.
Haven't mixed ballasts with other brand lights
