Ownership was just acquired by another manufacturer from what I hear. So the company maybe in transition.
I have the 180 but it's stuck in fixed mode or something and I'm not sure I trust it. So that's why I bought a new one I was going to go with the green line but it was more money and it was not in stock so I just got another red laser.

Did you get another 180? I got the pls4 for the plumb bob. Works great for plumbing walls.

Re: GIVEAWAY: Pacific Laser Systems PLS 180 Cross Line Laser


Just thought I'd update this thread.

It arrived late last week, but I neglected to post about it.

They sent me the green line unit. Very cool. I wasn't expecting that. I shot it across the house and it is bright as can be. The cool thing is you can set it in a corner and it gets the entire room.

My other cross line shows across most of the room, but always seems a bit wonky because it is a straight line going around a corner. This one is made for it.

I'll be putting it through its paces on a couple nutty window measurements I need to get done next week.

I know one thing already, it feels like a substantial bit of kit.

Review to come.

Can beat a laser for a room full of windows or wrap around sills. Alignment is critical to a professional quality finish.
