what's the basic difference between the different G socket types? I haven't found anything on this.
Are there any differences in mechanical stability or precision between the G, GX and GY?
(There also seems to be the less popular GZ...?)
I have a 1 kW fixture I want to convert from Edison type socket to G-Socket. The 9.5 socket size seems to be right choice. There is G9.5, GX9.5, GY9.5 and GZ9.5. Which one should I chose, and under what circumstances? Lamp cost seems to be around the same, with the GY9.5 being slightly more ubiquitous (probably due to the PAR64 raylights) and the GZ9.5 being quite rare..
