JMPaul,

Any chance Stanley might lower the minimum units req’d? Wallbuy’s promo on the Spark lights ends on May 3rd. A lot of us would prefer to buy from HKequipment but I can see some of the people committed to this GB jumping ship on May 3rd.

Considering the WB deal right now, same price, free shipping… and no minimum orders…

Don’t you think it’s time to ask HK for a final offer? Let’s say $40…

I bet that at $40 we could easily exceed the minimum amount …

Put me down for a NW SF5. I’ve been toying with the idea of getting a Zebralight SC52w, but this might do the trick instead (unless someone can point me to a great deal on the Zebralight).

But this effort is proceeding slowly and I wont wait forever, so I reserve the right to purchase something else in the meantime (if I do, I’ll report back here immediately).

This is a better deal than Zebralight.

Do you have an SF5 as well? If so I’d be interested in any thoughts you might have about how build quality and usability differs between the two.

Right now I’m leaning towards the Zebralight, in spite of its higher price because:

1) I have an SC600 and it is quite simply my favourite flashlight. I love it to death and consequently I have warm fuzzy feelings about the company who made it
2) the sc52 has a 500 lumen turbo mode when running on Li-Ion, which might come in handy occasionally. But aside from practical considerations, it has that whole “a light this small has no business being this bright” thing going for it. In the parlance of the car enthusiast, it’s a sleeper.

Thanks jmpaul! I find myself deliberating on buying from wallbuys now as well, as it is $42.99-$44 right now on sale from them. If you were to get hkequipment to make us a deal we can't refuse, then I'm all for it. As it's looking though, I'm watching very closely to see which is the better deal in the end. Wallbuys deal ends on the 3rd, so hopefully hke will provide a better deal before then, or I will just purchase the SG3 through wallbuys instead, as I'm not sure about us hitting 25 people in this GB.

I do agree with TomasVarnik, and say if hke can do $40, that would surely seal the deal for me, and I'm sure most people as well Smile

Please change my order to an SF3 NW please, as I jumped at the NW SF5 for $42.99 from WallBuys. But I’ll be watching closely to see how this plays out, so do us right HKE Smile

Edit: They are fine with 17 pieces.

Alright, I don’t really need one but I’ve been wanting a high powered headlamp like these. I think I’ll go for a SG3-NW.

I have received my SG3 from HKE a few days ago. I bought it a week before the GB started. Sad

 

It comes in a magnet flap box. Inside is a soft pouch, headband, wristband and clip. I also got the reflector.

 

The fit and finish is very good except for very small burs left around the inside of the battery tube where the tail cap screw's on. They can be easily scraped or filed off. The anodizing is good and the aluminum has a brushed finish. Carbon fiber sleeve is very smooth. Threads came dry but are very smooth once lubed.

 

I got the NW tint and this is my first NW, at first it looked too warm for me because I'm used to CW, but I quickly got used to the tint. Beam is very smooth with full flood and reflector. With the reflector it is still a wide beam because it is shallow and OP. 

 

Operation is easy with the switch on the head. Press to turn on or off, hold to cycle through modes. it remembers the mode you have selected until it loses power. Turbo mode is not remembered, it instead goes to the mode you had before going to turbo.

 

I like the SG3 a lot, the only thing that I think it's missing is a magnet in the tail cap.

Sorry for a useless post but everybody in OP ordered NW. After having watched how awesome NW is outdoors, it is hard imagining going something else for a few more lumens Big Smile

Never ever forget and forgive. Niwal**er new kid on the block trying to act tough.

I don’t quite understand the logic behind this process. Since the whole idea behind a group buy is a collective bulk purchase at a discounted price, why wouldn’t hkequipment just create a new discount code and make it public? They already know there’s interest, and “the more the merrier” is the notion that makes the most sense.

But I guess I can wait for the jump through the final hoop. Thanks for making this happen in any case.
