Wolfdog, have you seen this guys TN42? I mean, is it out there, establishing itself for absolute maximum throw numbers? Because Vinh’s is. Not really a question of what you believe or disbelieve, we know some facts on what’s out there, can’t really speculate on what may or may not come to pass. I’ve never personally heard of your guy Michael Johnson, the name to me is synchronous with winning Olympic medals in the 200M and 400M sprint races…

Of course, we all also know you’re personally sideways with Richard and as such on your own agenda. The rest of us here have a lot of faith in Richard. That’s not something that’s cause for debate, we have heard your viewpoint and you have heard from many folks about theirs. Justin would have said it is what it is, so that’s probably where this should be left…

We each have our own perspectives from our own experiences and as such, very little in this world can’t be argued.

I’m not exactly a big Vinh fan myself (as much because I’m too broke to afford his lights as anything else), not even a big throw light fan when it comes to that. The numbers game is a game, a variable, and changes a lot from one viewing to the next. I like building lights. I like it when those builds show big numbers, but I also like a nice beam profile and a great tint, so there’s more to it all… for me… than any particular lean.

The Thrunite TN42 is a fantastic light, I traded mine off and in some ways I regret it, but at the end of the day if I want another light that throws a mile I’ll just build it and carry on. Still, I have a lot of respect for those that pay a lot of attention to the details and work their butts off for the betterment of our hobby. Ya know?

You never heard of your fellow Texan? Michael Johnson OSTS…TN31mb…user name Saabluster? Anyway, we will just have to wait.

EDIT: YOU NEVER HEARD OF THE DEFT X?!!

I really wish you would stop bringing up Richard. You brought it up sarcastically in an email and now again on here.

I know what happened and my experience has NOTHING to do with yours or others.I do not make things up. I tell the truth.

Your second paragraph is irrelevant, provoking and has NOTHING to do with who I believe has or will have the longest throwing TN42! I am sure you wanted to get a reaction out of me by digging up the past.This is it, as civil as I can be.

Anybody who can put Two and Two together can see that and also look right through your motives and your skewed way of thinking. Maybe you ought to slow down on that pain medicine or whatever your taking,your reasoning and logic is distorted and your insinuations are way off base. Wink

My opinion is soley based on my experience with Vinh lights and Michael’s lights.

Seems, as wolfdog kinda said; if there is ever to be a clear winner in this customer debate….. a THROW DOWN should take place sometime. A heads up side by side comparison of lights to be considered for the title. Come one come all too. Wink

Same test equipment, same rules, same everything. Only way to know for sure…. A Throw Off. Smile Otherwise, even though these light are ALL fantastic… it is simply customer opinion & rhetoric as to which is “best”.

So till that happens, my money is on an obscure, little known light modder that lives at his camp in an undisclosed location somewhere in the bayous of south Louisiana. (rumor has it he may be a distant cousin of our very own chops728 here on BLF…. but even chops is not sure Wink . )

Anyway, above described Billy Bob Budro of Cajun Boo-Yah CandlePower is reportedly the designer & maker of some phenomenal lights…… especially far reaching throwers.

Never heard of him you might say…… Don’t worry, outside his location in the swamp; not many have. Wink

I bought one of my first lights from vinh, acebeam t25 with shaved dome. And I have to say that it was actually a pretty terrible experience. First he sent my light to another guy in Sweden.. I don’t know how it’s even possible. Secondly, after almost two months when the light finally arrived it was very underwhelming. I measured it significantly less than in its stock form. It was supposed to do over 113kcd, measured it 84kcd… My newly modded C8 is vastly superior at 118kcd.

I paid almost 200 usd with import taxes for a light that is utter crap. I will never even consider buying anything from him again.

Hmmmmm… what was vinh’s response to all of this & your dissatisfaction??

A liar will eventually get entangled in their own web. The satisfaction of that alone is all the revenge one needs.

After watching Swamp People a few weeks ago—Troy Landry has never heard of him either—-looked like ole Troy was using a hand held Q beam or some other low powered light—not very impressive——LOL

That is a down right shame & disgrace for the pride of Pierre Part to be using a Q Beam!! Facepalm

I have a friend in New Iberia that knows T-roy….. I’ll see if I can get him to ask TL to step up his game a bit and get with the program. Wink

Maybe ole BB Budro will even surface again (for some various supplies he can’t grow or kill of course) and I can hook them up with him. Who knows….. Wink

I most definitely got a bad light. I redid the lux measurements many times and still got the same numbers. The hotspot on it looks really weird, so something is definitely up with it.

He did eventually say it is what it is and offered me to send it back. But with the taxes and shipping adding up to almost a third of the cost it wasn’t really an option.

I understand. That’s a shame too. You came up on the short end of that deal…. Sad

Yea. Shipping and taxes can be expensive for out of country. I have many vn lights.. maybe 2 or 3 bad. He offered to repair for free and pay for shipping too. I also heard great story about vinh.. he even upgrade other stock light for free.. ( if you are nice to him)..

Thumbs Up … It only makes sense for the maker/modder to pay for any costs associated with returning an obviously bad light for repair. A happy customer is worth a lot more than the monetary cost associated with that. Smile
Word of mouth advertising is great…. but it works both ways. And that applies to anything, not just flashlights. Thumbs Up

Yea.. obviously, buying and returning from the over sea can be frustrated. They have to deal with the taxes and shipping.. ( 21 days ).. so yea.. but anyway, I am a vn guy.

Hello everyone sorry to bring up an old thread. I got the great idea to mod my tn42 without fully knowing what I was doing lol. I added one r100 resistor to the the four r062 resistors that are lined up on the board. So iam pretty new to modding with resisters did I mess up by adding the r100 resistor?
