Over the years I've seen this topic raised on this board, but I haven't seen anything lately.

So far as I can tell, 100 watt incandescent bulbs are no longer available. And all the local stores now carry compact fluorescents, the vast majority of which promise light equivalent to a 60 watt incandescent.

Well, I don't mind using a CFL, but I want light equivalent to a 100 watt incandescent. (By which I mean I want something in the neighborhood of 1700 lumens.)

I've seen a few here and there, but they tend to be physically very large (won't fit my fixtures) and very expensive ($12 - $15 for a single bulb).

To be honest, I wouldn't mind paying $10/bulb for lights that were bright and small, but I just can't find any.

Any brand/model recommendations?
