    Without making this a huge debate, which chest lights should I get for my Boba?
    (assuming shackman is still making them)

    It all depends on you. Both are great quality and great to work with. It just depends on preference and sometimes $$$. I love both of mine from SM and TK409.
    But I dont know if SM is making them. Try sending him a pm if you decide fro SM. Good luck.

    Check out this thread it has great comparison of the two displays.

    I personally ordered a TK409 display because I liked how bright it is. Both look to be great displays though.

    I have both versions, both are very nice quality. I personally prefer the flash sequence of Shackman's and the black surround around the digits. I also found that the battery in a Shackman's lasts around 12 hours and TK409's lasts around 4 hours. However, I prefer the the size of TK409's, the distance between the digits and upper lights is more like the screen used... Decisions, decisions

    Make a perfect set yourself?

    Personally, I don't know that I've ever seen any in person. I know my GML has a set, but he probably picked them up on ebay.
