    I am developing a fiber optic archery sight powered by a red/green/blue tri colored 5 mm led.

    The brightest I have found is 8000mcd.

    I would like 12-15,000 mcd.
    Do these exist?

    Cheap LEDs use the plastic case to focus the beam into a fairly bright but narrow angle.
    Like focussing the sun with a magifying glass to burn something.

    A good LED is extremely bright when its case focusses it.
