Quick question, I’m hesitating on two scenarii mainly:



  • Buy one 7A now, buy an SST20 when released. Will the BLF code still be alive by that time? 

  • Just wait for CRI95. Will the BLF code still be alive by that time?


PS: is there a post dedicated to comparing SST20 and XP-L? 


Don’t worry about the code.

Thanks for answering, so no urge to order. I'd better wait a few more days for CRIs.

 

Do we have a rough expectation date/order of mgmagnitude like for SSTs? Like 2 days or 2 weeks

I think i was one of the last few peoples who got in. Got my PM a couple hours ago. Ordered 2 (3D). One for myself and another for family. I may consider to order a SST20 when available. Thanks!

I guess nobody can say when the SST-20 will be available?

we will try to find the best SST20 for the FW3A,
supplier said next month will have


And our current coupon code will apply then?

Got my code and ordered a 7A. Seems like most people are going after the 3D; I’m concerned this will be too yellow, but I was more worried that the 500k would end up being too cool for me.

Thank you to Fritz, TK, Neal, Lumintop and to anyone and everyone who has been involved in the making of this. Placed my order and now the wait begins.

Originally I planned on buying the 3D tint but at the last moment decided I’d try out the 7A tint instead.
Personally I’ve preferred lights with a CCT ~4000-4500K but the closer to 5000K CCT of the 3D might be a bit too cold to my liking in a flashlight like this.
If I don’t like it then oh well, I’ll just swap the emitters.

I hope it works for you. It’s part of the code of conduct at one of the largest makerspaces in the US where people interact in person and it doesn’t work as well as everyone would like.

I'm an old member and declare the XP-L HI inferior to the SST-20 in several ways (throw, CRI)...except for its price. Big Smile

It does, because you can’t get around it on a technicality – it’s surprisingly rare that we have to ban people though. BLF also has a very low rate of people being jerks compared to the internet average.

I agree.

BLF is a special place with a surprisingly good user base.

I spend a lot of my time here because of that.

Do all Carclo 3 LED optics fit?

This looks very interesting:
http://www.carclo-optics.com/optic-10510?optictype=tir

They should fit. The drawings don’t show dimensions on the optic where it fits over the LED, but all shown dimensions are the same.

If you try the elliptical, you should report back with your thoughts on it.

That one will be very floody. A throwier version of that style (there are 20mm, single emitter versions) would probably make a good bike light optic.

Could you add one more for me to the list? Thanks

Edit: Whoops, just saw the list is closed. Nevermind! (That’s what I get for skipping to the end instead of reading everything). Thanks again to TK and the rest of the team for pulling this together!
