If the circle of the logo would at least be centered on the switch.. god that triggers me. xD Or just use the bunny and let the round button be the round circle of the logo design.
It also destroys TKs favourite reflection feature of the light. xD

I think it looks better without the logo.

That said, it looks easy enough to sand off if desired. While I would prefer the group buy have no logo I will buy it either way.

If the rabbit is actually on the production light, you can put me in for a second one. I know somebody who will be thrilled to get one with that logo.

As for me, I am fine either way…

Now that I think about it, without a logo would be slightly better.

But it's not a dealbreaker for me, and the logo could look a lot worse.

The logo will not be a showstopper, but from the first post: ‘‘No marking/logo for a clean look’‘. So strange to put a logo on it and I really liked the first buttons with the circular machine marks.

New to the forum, so my apologies if this isn’t the correct place to respond.

I would like to reserve 2 units.

We can want whatever, it is the manufacturer who decides in the end. They must asses how they are going to sell enough units to make a good profit, and at least outside the group buy branding helps sales.

I kind of like the bunny logo too, although there are better ones ( Amutorch is the best of all, Thorfire, Spiderfire, and of course Smiling Shark Party )

While the photo l posted much earlier may had the clip looking black, l made efforts to clarify if indeed it’s now black, but the definitive reply was “titanium grey” color.

Perhaps it would not be hard to offer plain, rabbit, and some special branded tails for group buy only. Of course it cannot be BLF or TLF alone, but perhaps there could be an agreed upon shape or pattern. Or it may even be that the only ones without the rabbit are the group buy ones, and this solves the issue somewhat. Personally i do not look at the tail, but if it feels odd I might sand it.

I’m sure I’ll get asked if it’s a Playboy flashlight. It won’t change my order.

Is it fit?

*sigh*

I’d prefer it with no logo, and with a bare-metal clip. Bare-metal rest of the light too, for that matter. But even more than that, I just want it to be done.

I think that’s what we all want, and taking issue with very minor things (such as tiny rabbits) at this point seems quite counterproductive.

A few manufacturers are listening to our suggestions, Lumintop is doing the contrary. They are breaking our agreements, so at this point they are going “free-wheel” and doing whatever they want. It remains nothing of the external original design except the triple TIR and e-switch tail location.

Please remove me from the list (4 units) even if I was in since long.

Do they, do you really think that people around you will recognize lumintop’s logo at first sight ?
Concerning people I know and people I’m meeting, except 2 of my relatives at best, I doubt they will recognize it !

People following this thread since day one are knowing how many concessions we made with all those changes. It’s time to say enough is enough for me with those revamping.
I was waiting to know the GT4’s price to make a decision between a GT70 and GT4, but when I’m saying that it is enough for me, it is enough with this brand.

Yeah. My sigh was about the unexpected changes, not the discussion.

Wow, I don’t think I have ever seen so many needy people grouped in one place. It reminds me a lot of my great grand mothers weekly ladies book club meetings.

Add me for one more please. XPL HI is fine. Rabbit is fine too.

Preferences not neediness.
Lets be fair, the light has completely transformed from the original concept.
Granted it is very nice, it is not what the first signed up for.
Sticking a rabbit on it right on that nicely machined button is just really silly now. On the clip would be better.
