One thing I've found with CFLs, particularly nonstandard ones like floodlights, is that they can take a while to warm up and will be dim for the first few minutes. Sometimes this is fine, other times (like if you are only using them for a few minutes at a time, which might well be the case in a basement) it can be annoying.
Look for "instant on" cfl bulbs. Most standard cfls (i.e. the sort you would use in a table lamp to replace a normal incandescent bulb) are instant on these days, but with a specialty type like floodlights it could be harder to find. You may need to buy them online. Or if possible just use the standard cfls and put up with it looking a little funny.
