FWIW, I bought a HC1200 about a month ago via ebay.ca. Do not buy it that way if you are in the US. Actually, IMO never buy anything from ebay.ca if you are in the US unless you are getting a crazy...

stephen77, would you mind posting your sources? I tried a black piece of spandex that the AT guys use with mylar behind it, but it was way too opaque. So, I am highly interested in your spandex!

That's the same setup that I have. I have only the issue stated above, but that is during the day. I have no issues at night--I don't notice anything at all out of the ordinary.

Thanks for the info., cylab.

Have you (or anyone else) tried MACal 9700 Pro in black? The MACtac website describes it as: "Translucent when backlit and opaque when not illuminated."
