Nice, and very close to home. Hmm, I wonder if I need that 1A I was pondering.

Finally broke down my resistance to tail switches and ordered the Cu XP-L HI.
Also bought 4@ GA’s anticipating the LT1 arrival.

Nice having local recourse/resource in case of problem. Wink

Now that has to be a record! Took them all of an hour to ship my order. Big Smile

unable to order. It either rejects the amount of lights I want or I get a spinning wheel

never fear shadows…it means a light shines nearby

Spinning wheel? Did you choose the LED type before clicking add to cart?

Would these have the latest Anduril version?  I'm guessing not, but thought I would ask anyways.

Unfortunately Lumintop isn't quite up to date as the very latest from ToyKeeper. The vast majority of shipping FW3X models from our store have the version with the updated two levels of lockout mode.

I must say your service has been exceedingly efficient. My FW3C and 4 Sanyo GA’s ordered on 7/18 arrived today.
The copper glows and the switch feels very good and crisp. (&silent)

I’ll be back, as Ahnold would say.

The sst20 I received recently from Neal is fantastic!  No hint of green on any level that I can see. Perfect. 

I’d still like to know in practical terms how much different the extra heat if the sst20 really matters over the xpl-hi.

Interesting! According to the official thread, the bin used to be FA3.

Did Lumintop tell you it is FD1 for both FW3A and FW3C? Or just FW3C?

I'll ask for further clarification but Lumintop is slow and selective at responding.

It’s definitely not FD1. My test results show that it corresponds with the FD2 tint bin. Still good but can be rosier.

You can’t go wrong ordering from Illumn, always been very pleased.

I’m going to order one as soon as I decide which emitter I want.

I opted out of the FW3A group buy basically because of the tail switch (&the 2yr lag time). Tired
The copper adds value and curb appeal to the light. I wouldn’t have bought it iffn it were sandblasted.
The added perk of having it delivered in days rather than weeks/months put me over the hump.

In the FW3A/FW3C? No, it's an electronic switch and has zero room for a McClicky

Yeah, that’s what I thought. I was confused by the post above mine.
