been reading a while now so i figure i may as well sign up and introduce myself

got into lights when i found i had some extra cells around from quitting vaping, started with an Olight S2 and quickly grabbed a pair of Astrolux S1 (3D and 5A) and an Astrolux S41 (N219b) i was impressed! little had i known my S41 was about to drag me down another pit when the optic shifted and dedomed those poor beautiful 219Bs.

It’s been a while now since finding the world of modding and the S41 recieved a 219c 4000k r9050 triple transplant. I should probably add that one S1 got an xp-l hi 3000k 80cri and the other runs the short tube with a SST-20 3500k 95+cri behind a tir.
I have a few other lights now as well. My most recent acquisition was a pair of Sofirn SF14v2.0s specifically to host more 3500k SST-20 pups…. ok i might have went crazy cause one ended up in my Lumintop Tool AAA (the new XP-G3 that was in it had that super ugly cct shift) …..

…and also in my Emisar D1

edited to correct; the Tool came with XP-G3 R5 (stated on package Facepalm )

Hi SK1LL, welcome to BLF.
Could not help noticing that you are already on the road to an empty wallet.
Dutch people always say: “gedeelde smart is halve smart”.
I don’t know if “misery loves company” is the perfect translation for that.

AFAIK, Milla is powdering her nose. I expect her to submerge you in her warm welcome in a short while.

You are a flashaholic if you are forced to come out of the closet, to make room for more flashlights.
