Why are Kino bulbs 2900?

1) why Kino tubes come in 2900. Why not just 3200? Does 2900 offer something im missing?
2) why do Kino do 40w and 75w versions of the same tube? Wouldnt everyone want 75w?
Go ahead and tell me why im dumb.

The 40w and 75w tubes are actually one and the same thing. The difference is in the labeling, which i believe changed over time to comply with different standards.
Kino ballasts in 4ft or HO mode overdrive 4ft 40w tubes at 75w, it's just Kinoflo tubes are designed to be overdriven to 75w.
The reason why the 75w tubes seem so much brighter is actually down to the fact that they generally have many more years of use than the later 75w tubes.
