Best laser pointer? was created by moonbeam
Hi all,

I'm wondering what the best green laserpointer is on the market for tree climbing / tree assessment.

I have looked at the 5mw green Mag Model Day Laser Pointer from SherillTree, the Beamshot GreenBeam 50 Tactical, and models from Wicked Laser.

I like the idea of an impact resistant and waterproof design from Beamshot though the Sherill laser looks nice.

What laserpointers do you use and why? What power level is it?

I queried their site. They did mention wicked lasers which are lower on my list of choices.

The site doesn't let me log in unfortunately.

I use a 200 mW Wicked laser. Get the extended 2 year warranty. This unit is much brighter than the laser you will get at Sherrill Tree. Make sure you get the green color!

I run a tree inspection business. I save a lot of talking and pointing by using this laser pointer. It always impresses the clients. It's that bright!

Thanks Treeman! Wow, I was thinking 5mW green. 200mW sounds way more fun.

Have you had any issues with the safety screw/pin coming loose on the Wicked laser?

I had to return my laser for a new one once. It was not the screw pin. The thing that broke was the little bulb above the trigger button that told me I was engaging the laser. So I put a turn of vinyl tape around that spot on my new pointer. That's why you should get the extended warranty. They had a 14 day turn around on my defective laser.

Hey Moonbeam,
Where do you teach tree climbing? Have I met you?

This is a good point. I'm seriously considering another vender as well as Wicked Lasers. http://www.rayfoss.com has some really cool ones. I like the 100mw rather than 200mw.

I have a question about laser pointers?

How are they used for tree climbing?

Do they serve some purpose of protection of some kind if an animal climbs up the tree and tries to bite you?

I suppose if you are camping in a heavily forested area, you could use a burner laser to start a campfire if you don't have matches or a lighter.

And if it's raining it's the best option to resist the rain I suppose.

I know this is pretty old, but arborist use laser pointers to show the client their work plan; which branches need removed or trimmed, etc.

Trever -- Peter says go to this website: https://www.laserpointerpro.com/. Get a laser pointer with the push button at the opposite end of the light instead of on the side (in your pocket, it could turn on automatically and burn out the battery). He uses his all the time to point stuff out to our tree inspection customers.
