Well if it doesn't generate enough turns they should get rid of it.

I just bought one of these on Ebay - http://cgi.ebay.ca/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?...369348494&rd=1

They have several of them listed. It's 2 24" 65w bulbs - so 130w total. I am waiting on it right now so can't tell you anything although I believe Sam here has either the same one or a larger version and he seems happy enough with it. You might look at AH Supply (don't have the link), they have retrofit kits that a lot of folks here swear by.

I ended up getting mine for right around $50 (US) plus shipping - I think it's $9 or $10 for shipping in the US. Good luck! I can't wait for mine to arrive!

110w - 24" bulbs? I don't know of a single bulb with that kind of wattage, but go to:
www.ahsupply.com
I have the 24x2 retro-fit (110w total) "bright kit". It's a decent price and it works like a charm.
