Got bit by the flashlight bug a few months ago and it has recently been running rampant, this will be my third light purchase this year.

Hi PewPew, I see you’re new; welcome to BLF!
Ric said they should be in Early April, so shipping from Hong Kong they should arrive by the last week of April, no later than the first week of May. Assuming they get shipped at that time.

Welcome the night.

Nice, I like the black one better and that is what I ordered Laughing.

The grey one in this picture actually looks sand-colour, unlike in the original pictures. Is the colour really different or is it just the picture?

It’s a bit different with the original sample. Looks more beautiful outdoor. Smile

Phew…glad I ordered the black version…that ‘titanium’ color has a little too much gold in it.

Me too, I like the black. The titanium is more titanium oxide colour, like a tiny SRK almost. I’m happy that I ordered black. Others will be happy they ordered titanium.

Welcome the night.

I ordered titanium and don’t mind the color, there are too many black lights in my stash so this will help break up the collection a bit.

I am just worried about the annodizing being off between the head and body.

They’re BOTH very nice. I like the contrast between the clip and the body with the black one, but I also like having some lights that are not “just” black…

Both colors are nice!

I’m still searching for the info which specifies the material the lens is made of … is that anti-reflective glass or some sort of scratch-resistant plastic?

I would be surprised if it is glass (haven't seen many of them around), and plastic TIR's are really alright with me: they do not break on impact and are optically just as clear as glass. It just scratches over time, but that is ok with the normal wear and tear of a light, it does not affect the output a lot. The only risk is that it melts when overheated, so I will not mod this light with a monster driver.

The first post in this thread states:
“Reflector: Glass optics lens”

It looks like a normal plastic TIR lens in the photo.

I dont like twisty UI on 18650 lights. i need clicky switch on 1xAA or 18650 lights. anyway, i was willing to pay 25.95$ incl shipping and FREE diffuser plus holster so 30$ pre-order price aint gonna do it.

sollie man.

I hear ya man. I'm not wild about twisty's myself. I think I'll pass

Arent Eagletacs UIs also based on twisting? Silly

Its really simple.. only magnetic control rings are more simple.

I don’t think I will. Of course a clicky is preferable in many ways but it takes up space. The whole point of this light is to be as small as possible, hardly bigger than the 18650 itself, if you add a clicky then you sort of defeat the object.

Simple, but friggin annoying if you want high and have to one handed scroll through the modes you don’t want. I actually don’t mind twisty UI’s, but why no mode memory? Is there a single negative to having mode memory?

I really dislike mode memory. My memory is not that big and to also remember what mode my flashlight FHS was in last time would take up too much of my valuable memory space.

LOL!  Same here.  Give me a light that starts in low and has no memory everythime for an EDC.  Only with an outdoor monster would I consider starting in high.
