Let's hear from those in the know. This will help people looking for information on which companies are trustworthy and which products are reliable.

For this discussion, we'll focus on Tomar?
 
I've always been fascinated by their products and their bizarre design choices (exterior lightbar stick, completely open to the elements, with the expectation water will "drain" out the gaps in the front lens holder, while the electronics are completely unsealed and exposed to the elements).

But I can't find a single decent online store to purchase their products from.

Trying to research and purchase their products is a total pain in the ass.

Do they even want to sell directly to end users?

Do they even want to be in business?
 
It's an interesting design.

Giant twin i beam main bar makes it stupid heavy, but a great heatsink for the led light heads.

The lightheads are interchangeable from incandescent/strobe/led.

The led optics are uniquely tomar.

And best of all, it completely ignores providing angled intersection protection to the rear, a concept federal signal would later copy with the integrity light bar.

In its day the Tomar Heliobe strobe bar was wicked and bright. The strobe modules were sealed so you could not swap out lens colors. Had a 10 year warranty. I liked the clicking noise they made. You could do Pre-emption so the front four strobes would pick up speed to make stop lights green.

I've always liked Tomar and their neobe bars. I also used to run a Tomar Police Light II, which was a terrific dash light. It seemed as though they were doing well with the transition to LEDs with their "cheerio" style optics. Though expensive, the Blade was a great and great looking lightbar with a mix of LED styles. After the scorpion came out it seemed they hit pause for a number of years. I have seen their new dual color external lights, but I am hoping that they have a new lightbar or other products out soon.
