The form factor, reflector size and throw is all nothing special (not like the GT that created a whole new class), but in this fairly crowded niche I like the design very much and it is fun that they followed the GT styling in detail. And of course the user interface is un-beatable!

Does it have the tripod mount?

The pic with your daughter is un-beatable too Thumbs UpSmile

I assume the "Mini" idea did not allow that

also price wise a 18650 is a good decision - many people have them already.

Anyway they could double the head size? That could be the mini gt and this one can be the micro gt

Blf has changed a lot since I've been here. Lots of snow flakes and easily offended over nothing. When the forum use to be great and people joked around and could take a joke. It's a forum it's not that serious. Let's make BLF great again!

I was wanting a Emisar D1S also but will wait for the Mini GT (wouldn’t mind a regular BLF GT)…

Maybe next year.

I’ve got a thrower, a flooder, and an EDC too. Still looking for a bigger thrower, flooder, and a new EDC, give or take a few. I’m a flashaholic.

Hi Martin..

I hate to say it but I love that one, very nice.. Smile
Does it also come with an extra short 18350 tube just to match up its bigger brother/sister !? (long and short tube)

I did some measuring. The reflector opening seems 53mm to me, and the quality of the reflector looks very nice. With a XP-L hi at 4.5A it should throw better, more like 180 kcd.

Definitely interested. Sure it’s nothing really special, but the styling like our GT’s is very neat.
