Not on the Technobeams, but Strong is the standard of the industry on follow spots. The Trouper, Super Trouper, Xeon Gladiator are all built by Strong. Anyone who has run a Strong spot will tell you they are the Rolls Royce of follow spots. It would be hard for me to believe that anything they build would be junk.
.....wasn't the Technobeam a High End product? How did Strong end up with them.
And JD is right...while I haven't dealt with them directly you shouldn't have any problem with their products.
Yeah H.E.S. quit making them a few years back. Strong was looking to get into the market and gave H.E.S. a call and said, "Hey you going to do anything with those? Cause we'll take them." The bought the name and the technology... this all happened in the last 6 months or so. Hasn't been too long.
