I am asking for a general response here, please.

I have to be clear that at this time i have Lynx X_Basic 2s in stock and no immediate plans to discontinue them.

My question however is simply

"If you were considering purchasing a budget end lamp from me, would you consider it worth paying the extra £25 for this one, the Scorpion X, rather than £100 for the Lynx X basic 2"?

All replies and genuine opinion welcomed.

Further to my last it appears that the matter has now resolved itself as I have just been advised by suppliers that the aluminium die cast lamp bodies are no longer available!

So sadly, I have to discontinue the Lynx X_Basic 2, the end of 'traditionally' shaped lamps, at least from this shop.

Yes, I'm afraid it is. But the Scorpion is the best lamp yet, Dragon still going, but it a 'niche' lamp.

The Lynx was based on a Chinese die casting used for a variety of underwater flood lamps, so I am surprised.
I could still get them but not at an economic price. I do have the last 4 shipping, but need them for an outdoor lighting system I have designed. On paper, I can light up all the gardens for 18 watts!
