Looking for suggestions/experience for a good budget 24" Dual T5 retro fit kit with parabolic SLR's. Did some googling, but nothing beats experience. Thanks!:)

First, what are you trying to retrofit ?
I haven't bought any of those. I was just wanting to say that a T5NO is barely more than a T8. Reflectors make all the difference in the world on any fixture.

A custom wood canopy I made for my 20 high. Want a kit with good single light parabolic reflectors to mix with my LED's.

Something like that.
Not "kits" per se but many here like the Sunblaster line of nano reflectors and fixtures..

Your "kit" is a fair price but just saying "german Aluminum" doesn't really say anything about reflector design..It may or may not be a quality parabolic..

Anyway..
Amazon.com : Sunblaster 904296 NanoTech T5 High Output Fixture Reflector Combo, 2-Feet : Plant Growing Lamps : Patio, Lawn & Garden
