    Default Light Grids

    I apparently suck at search engines lol, I couldn't find much on differences of degrees from 10 to 40... If I want to reduce the most light would I get a 10 or 40 degree grid?

    Looking into one of these grids for my setup - Honeycomb Grids

    10 degree would be the most restrictive to the light.

    The "degrees" mentioned refer to the beam spread. That is, a 10 degree grid will restrict the light beam to about 10 degrees of angle. And a 40 degree grid will restrict the beam to about 40 degrees.
