best MH??

I have a 1000W MH fixture and the bulb is on it's last leg. Since most of my plants are currently outdoors for the remainder of the growing season, I have a few weeks to order a new bulb. I've been looking at a Sunmaster but am not sure what to go with. I want the max PAR wattage but also a balanced spectrum as I have mostly foliage plants but also grow citrus. Any ideas?

I get mine from home depot. Just the ordinary type for around $15-$20. Many only carry up to 400 watt, but can order the 1000s at a much more reasonable price than the overpriced bulbs with "Grow" on the label.

RE: best MH??

I'd go w/ the Hortilux blue or a ceramic metal halide bulb.
