    Wow if I can get by with only 2 24's on my 6ft 210 that would be awesome!

    Would I use 90's or 120's if I were to do that?

    David, get 90's. 120 degree optics are just like running with none at all. If you don't feel the 90's cover enough area, you can just take the optics off.

    I was told that 2 would be fine. 3 of the 16 inch would leave the same amount of space uncovered... 3*16=48 and 2*24=48. Also i ordered 90 degree lenses so i figured i could always pop a few lenses off on the edges between lights if I had any shadow problems.
