**Please Note** Pulse start type lamps may ignite and work just fine on a probe start ballast for a few months; however, as the lamp ages, the electrodes erode and higher voltage is needed to start the lamp. The open circuit voltage provided by probe start ballasts is not sufficient to ignite a pulse start lamp.

Yes, I would recommend this.
There aren't many 20k kelvin 250w non-radium bulbs out there. Regardless of that this is a great bulb. I bought this as a replacement. I've used the Hamilton 14k kelvin 250w and that's also a great bulb but just not blue enough for my liking
