So this year a customer buys a bucket truck , as opposed to renting

and all to decorate big tall trees with xmas lights :rolleyes:

but he wants some durable lights

These are as commercial as I have ever seen. It is the "circle of lights" downtown Indianapolis. They are strung from the top of the monument to the ground along 1/4" steel cables raised from the ground with a wire puller. It is pretty cool to see lit up at night. I did not take these pictures. They are posted online.

There were "GE Pro line Christmas Lights". They were a little larger than the common miniature lights. 8mm diameter. My son is looking for some locally to finish his house lighting.

Try magic in the sky lighting. There light strings are sealed so you dont have to worry about bulbs falling out or water getting under the bulb and corroding. Ive bought from them 3 years in a row and have not had one string go out.

Steve, the ones in your link, like Jlarson pointed out, are crap. 20 guage wire? Seriously?

Check these out:

These are for standard C7/C9 bulbs, incandescent or LED type. Browse the site for other types and styles. For example, LED C7 style: http://www.1000bulbs.com/category/led-c7-christmas-light-strings/

18 guage should be the minimum for commercial lights.
