A good lume kit, or a good redialer?

    I bought a Bergeon 5680B-07 kit from a reputable vendor (ofrei) so I'm pretty sure it's genuine, but I'm disappointed by it. I have been able to get nice looking smooth applications, but there's hardly any glow. I know there are various Luminova technologies but this product doesn't really say which it is. I don't think anything on it even says Luminova.

    If any of you know of a better product, I'd love to hear about it.

    Or is this a job for a redialer? 20 years ago my redialer would even put tritium lume in hands if asked to. Today I'm having trouble finding any redialer who will actually talk to me (my volume would only be a few a month).

    I use the green version of this kit. I find the illumination a bit weak if applied too thin. I mix my paste rather thick and in general it glows after exposure to a light source. Unfortunately the strength weakens quite fast but that is the way this modern illumination products work......
