The CFL Hobby Reflector is a version of our Hobby Reflector that includes a mains lead and E40 lampholder. Featuring a strengthened lamp support to cope with the additional weight of a CFL lamp and precise angles for optimum light distribution, this great value reflector far outperforms many HID reflectors that have been bodged to accept a CFL lamp. Available as a reflector only or as a complete kit including either a blue or red spectrum Eco-Light CFL Lamp.
