Oh gosh I SO hope there is no hype and people do thinfs based on real Info, it is one of the prime reasons to show the whole process and not do things like teasers . We try to post info ASAP and clear, being open about flaws as well as the good stuff.

You’re doing this the right way and I for one really appreciate it. Good man!


That is nice to read, thanks!

Is there a list of person to PM for the second group buy? Wish I had jumped into the first one now… kinda kicking myself. I have absolutely ZERO use for a light like this… but I want it like I can’t even explain! lol. It would fulfill all desires for a thrower light for almost all time.

I’ve never spent more than $30 on a flashlight…. this would be unprecedented.

Kinda off the current topic but now that there is a second group buy with supposedly no limit in quantity, what happens to those people who want a 2nd, 3rd, and more GT?

Will there be some kind of cutoff so that the people wanting more than 1 can get theirs too?

Those wanting multiples can order as many as they want at the $150 price point. Only the $111 price point is limited to 555.

I can totally see some forward thinking modders buying a bunch of these to make super lights out of to resell. No other reflector host will come close to the performance this is capable of.

I see. I guess I was under the impression that everyone requesting their first GT got precedence over people requesting more than 1. Thanks for clarifying!

Well, the first 555 will be the first to get the PM as those will be at a reduced price but once those 555 slots are full the remaining people will all get the PM at the same time and can order as many lights as they want.

Just got the pm so it’s working.
As a said earlier, I’m making some room for the next person on the list.

This also means that the production will start soon and that the GT will become real!!

so which list are we using? I just got my PM and my number is different than the one I find in the OP. PM said I was #518, OP says I am #519. Also, that means I am in the first group and total price will be $14 + $97 = $111 or thereabouts?

If the 2nd group buy is still open, I’d be interested in 2 of these. Thanks.

So I have a slight issue, hopefully its a lesson for others, but being unfamiliar with paypal gifting, I missed the section to leave a note with my payment before everything had been completed. The payment had been sent, but is there a way for Neal to see my email address so I would be able to share the information associated with it?

I’m not sure what information is received with the payment so I wasn’t sure if I could email that address with the paypal transaction ID along with the necessary details.

I also had that question, Sp5it. I’ve sent a PM to the Miller, but he hasn’t replied yet.

Select pay for goods, this is to help ensure that paypal doesn’t shut down Neals account.

Friends in family results in no fees. So them discussing the Paypal fees in the email tells me they are expecting us to use Goods and Services.

Neal should see any replies to the PM you recived. You can try replying to that to work it out there. They could refund you and have you resend payment.

It could take awhile for Miller and Neal to catch up with all this action. Don’t be surprised if it is days before getting a reply. They have over 555 PM’s and payments to figure out.
