FW3CF…… Carbon Fiber.
FW3BF…… Buckyfiber.

Lurking flashaholic, Ive bought all my flashlights through lurking here, BLF A6, Sofirn C8F, Soforn Q8, Emisar D4, and a few not so budget lights but I mod them all the same! Been waiting for the FW3A to come out for years now.......

Ok if we just add that one?? To keep our options open you know…. Big Smile

I was kinda thinkin it’d be better for health and safety reasons too but didn’t want to seem like sissy girl making suggestions like that.

So you have to register your flashlight with the Nuclear Regulatory Commission? Evil And each one comes with instructions to only purchase if you don’t plan to have any more children. Cool

Wouldn’t a cast-iron light rust rather than gaining a patina?

Whoa, wait! The “XX” is the whatever flavor indicator insertion you have, not a cheap knockoff. Like they do for 2×700 battery size listings.
The “appeal” part, is the less sting of the pocket for replacement of losing or damage, compared to the price tag and lottery luck needed for those high end lights.

Deadwood Custom Works, found on FB and IG. He also sells thru Recon 1 website.

Interesting. It runs a version of Bistro, modified so the 7135 channel drives color emitters separately from the FET channel, which drives white emitters. In practice, it’s basically Bistro except the lowest mode or two is a color instead of white. I should probably contact Recon1/Deadwood to let them know how free software works, since they don’t appear to be following the license terms (need to provide source code, or at least a link to it). This is pretty normal for anyone who is new to this sort of thing though, and I have a fill-in-the-blanks letter I can send about it.

Okay, sent. I hope the sales address gets to the right person.

Yes, and I’ve already worked things out with CWF and RMM. CWF even sent me a nice purple Dragon S2+ with green LEDs, just because he wanted to be nice. Smile I’m not previously familiar with Recon1 or Deadwood Custom Works though, and the license applies to anyone who distributes the code — including when used inside a product they sell.

This sort of thing happens all the time, is easy to resolve, and typically isn’t a big deal. It’s just interesting stumbling across my code in places I didn’t know about.
