    That's your rank, till you get to 100 posts, I think.

    Only then, will it change to Jedi Knight.

    personally i like the 5 degree lenses for single die LEDs, and the 10 degree lenses for multi-die LEDs for just about any blade, but if you prefer the 10 in the comparison charts, then go with 10. the 5 looks to be spread a bit more evenly to me though.

    She has a good point, the five degree lense makes the blade more even, but I like the ten degree because it gives just a little bit a a flare effect at the base of the blade.

    So 5 degree lens for a 34 inch blade would be good then? I plan on using a trans white thin walled blade for Lee Filter show offs.

    Since the store no longer carries the 10 degree lens, you now have a choice between the 5 degree and and the Rebel 8.7 degree. Both will work fine in a blade that size. I personally use the 5 degrees in my 34" blades, but I have also used the 8.7 before and not really noticed a difference.

    I'm not convinced that a trans-white blade is the best bet for showing off a filtered white led. The white opacity of the blade is going to wash out or change the color of the filter, so you will not be getting an exact result. I'd use a clear blade with either of the lenses for that.
