The bulb is "A" shape and the diameter would be nineteen 8ths of an inch, or 2 3/8".

                      I am not sure whichbulb to order. I need a GU 10+C 120v 50w. I was looking at two different bulbs on your site and one is a narrow flood light, one is a wide flood. Not sure what the difference is and what I have.
                      Thanks for your help!

                        A:

                        Narrow Flood and Wide Flood refer to the beam spread or angle of light when the bulb is turned on. The angle needed can depend on the application and how far the fixture is from the object or space it's illuminating. If the bulb will be used for general lighting, then the wide flood or narrow flood would be fine. If the bulb will be used to highlight an object or piece of artwork, then the narrow flood would be more suitable. Again, there are many factors to determining the correct beam spread (angle). If there are still any questions regarding the suitable product to choose, our customer service department can be reached at 888-455-2800. They will be happy to assist in determining the best bulb for the application.

                        A:

                        The difference between wide and narrow flood lighting is the width of the light beam it projects. If your current lighting lights a wide area or a narrow area.
