T-5 Reflectors

I'm ordering lights for my 125g. I'm getting a retrofit with an icecap 660 ballast. There are 2 options. Either 2 36" SLR reflectors put together, or a a single 60" Tek reflector. I'm using 60" bulbs so the extra reflector doesn't matter. Is the SLR that much better than the Tek.

SLR is a better reflector and is also narrower. The SLR is the same width as the T5 standoffs, so when you put the standoffs edge to edge, the reflectors are edge to edge. You need to space the standoffs with the Tek and will not be able to fit as many bulbs.
