  "The most powerful handheld laser in the world."

― Guinness Book of World Records 2007

We wanted to create the world's most powerful handheld laser -- we succeeded and inadvertently set a world record in doing so. We are extremely proud to be included in the Guinness Book of World Records for 2007. This will serve as a testament to our commitment to providing the world with the most sophisticated laser products technology can offer.

Designed and developed by some of the world's best engineers, the Spyder Series stands at the pinnacle of laser technology. Lithium powered, water-proof and ultimately powerful, the Spyder Series is our most advanced line of handheld lasers to date.

We still have much to prove as there is still a world of possibilities in front of us. Our quest to turn science fiction into reality has only just begun.
