I'm now wondering how many de-domed lights we're going to start seeing.

Looks too easy to activate strobe accidentally. Why would anyone want a tactical strobe with a narrow throwy beam anyway? To dissuade an attacker at >200m?

Because all the light is straight into their eyes and not spread out. Also comes with a diffuser. Also, I have never accidentally hit the strobe on my m20sx javelot, it is a really firm press.

So is Olight dedoming these LEDs? Or do they have an exclusive with CREE?

I have a few vinh lights and I love em, but if you want just a stock light with a warranty that you won’t feel bad abusing it at work this is the way to go. I sure as sh*t am not carrying any of my fiat lux’s on duty.
Also, unless you buy one of his ready to ship lights, you’re looking at 2 or 3 months to get a light from him, or 2 days on amazon. Poth have their places.

And you’re not going to buy a javelot to use on low, it’s meant for some extra throw. And it may just be my m20sx javelot, but I have no ugly green tint on mine. So it depends on the LED.

Sorry, I edited my post and it makes your post not make much sense. I carry my TX25C2vn PDTc Fiat Lux with me at work, but she’s very safe in my pocket!

Would you tell me more detail for fiat lux?
I’ve wondered for Vin’s PDT is real good compare with non dedome led.

I will add that my m2x-ut javelot does have ugly greenish tint on low and some on medium, but on high (the only mode I use) it’s fine.

In regards to fiat lux, it’s what he considers the best of a batch he makes that has many different qualities that make it the best possible tint etc of the bunch. You can’t tell him to make you a fiat lux, you just sometimes luck out and get one, or you buy a used one from someone.

Dedome makes tint greenish, the PDT makes the tint neutral or cool depending on your preference. All of his lights now that are dedomed get PDT.
Mine is a Fiat Lux due to the super focused hot spot and brightness being among the best of the batch he made, and it also has Fiat Lux and V54 engravings. A very beautiful little light for my pocket and throws very well.

Yes, on low, and somewhat on medium. If you use an m2x-ut javelot for its low setting, you’re missing the point. It’s a thrower, not well rounded edc.

A picture is worth a thousand words. Below are several. In all modes and in comparison with other throwers. Pictures are courtesy of FlashLion.

From my point of view, Olight M2X-UT is a great thrower but this is only version 1.0 and it has an ugly green tint in all modes. This is especially evident in comparison with other throwers as you see from the pictures below. When the manufacturer does not specify the tint bin of the LED in its flashlight as Olight did with Javelot, most of the time it is because there is nothing to boast about in that department.

Also notice in the pictures below how much light M2X-UT wastes by spilling the light at your feet rather than throwing it at a distance. Notice the beautiful narrow beam pattern of ThruNite TN32 in comparison with the ugly spilled beam of Olight M2X-UT.

M2X-UT problems in version 1.0 could be easily fixed by:
1. selecting a LED with fewer lumens but better tint
2. redesigning the reflector not to spill the beam but focus it to be thrown farther

The redesigned reflector would more that compensate for the lost lumens in the better tint LED and would most likely increase the throw of this great de-domed flashlight concept.

I still want to buy M2X-UT but not until Olight fixes both the ugly green tint and redesigns the reflector for better beam pattern in version 2 or later.

And I messed with the distances so don’t judge it by beam size, just color, because one is closer and one is far

Hello Sarge! That would be me! I qualify for selling you a M25C2vn Fiat Lux!!! :bigsmile:

My M2X was not that bad of a tint. I sent it to Vinh to improve the tint but mostly to make it ~ 300Kcd compared to stock version 164Kcd.

Don’t really see much difference of spill b/w the TN32 and M2X. In any event, “What is wrong with some spill at your feet?” I use ALL my high powered modded throwers to walk my Husky!! Spill at ones feet is a good thing!

It is the same reflector as my M3X which puts out a decent amount of light[spill/throw] both peripheral and a down range for throw.

Yes, a picture CAN be worth a Thousand words, a Picture can also “ALTER” the real life tint of a flashlights beam! By no means is the M2X A “Coolish” type of tint,,,,,,it is domeless.On the other hand,,,,,,,,,In REAL life my M2X in STOCK form did NOT look nearly that Green. Furthermore my TN32 looked much more cooler than the photos reveal!

p.s. I don’t see you buying this light. Olight is NOT going to change the reflector for You or anyone else,,,,,,,with good reason,it works fine!

I JUST REMEMBERED THIS! I do NOT know when the transition will start. But a member on the other forum emailed Olight and they confirmed that the M2X will now have the XPL emitter. This was on March 27th,2015. Will the M20SX and M3X Javelot follow???

Here are a few of his posts:

“Olight confirms via email, that the led has changed from XM-L2 to XP-L.”

This following info. by Olight I DO NOT believe!

“Olight tells specs are the same, with this update.”

SEVERAL OF MY MODDED LIGHTS[Specializing in THROW] Would have an XPL emitter if it could throw further than an XML2!

If your interested,written info. begins on post #233/page #8 and Photo of Customized-not dedomed XPL LED on post #249/page #9.

One thing I want to add is that it has visible PWM in all three levels.
My sample has the best dedomed tint I have ever seen. The dedomed led also has a layer of some protective stuff. My m2x did not have that layer. And tint is not as good.
