Default UV lighting; Whats the big deal about Reptisun???

Ok heres aother question..

Basically the viv for my BD is 48 inches long, and right now im using a 42 inch repti-glo 10% uv without a reflector. I have bought a reflector but bought the wrong length uv (i actually bought a 48 inch one ) both of which were online. so i have two questions.

1) what is the big deal with reptisun UV are they better than zoo med's repti glo??
2) and if they are better than the repti glo could i use a 36 inch long bulb as they dont make 42 inch??

to be honest i need to know fast as the bloke is waiting to find out what im going to do about them...

personally i use a 36" repti glo with a reflector (which is made from some normal plastic guttering, and lined with shiny sticky stuff ) and have it angled from floor to ceiling at 45 degrees so my beardie can bask under it at whatever level he needs
thats in a 4ft viv btw
