So the list of proposed names, I skipped “Penetrator” that would be just awkward to contact people about Wink

Voted for .50 but there might be URL issues with that. Silly

Second choice is BLF OMFG.

Slow is smooth; smooth is fast.

A thrower with a fat head, a shortish “haft”, and especially if it’s made by Thorfire, surely has to be called Mjölnir. Big Smile

I voted for GT, but I think the name should be selected after having defined characteristics of the device. At least approximate…

Seeing that BLF GT is taking off in the poll, I find it disturbing that apart from sounding just big, Giga actually stands for something exact: times 109, while we aim for 106 cd. So I propose to add the name BLF MT (Mega Thrower) to the poll, because that is what it is.

+1 I would change my vote to Mega Thrower. I didn’t vote for Giga Thrower for exactly this reason.

Reason is not automatic. Those who deny it cannot be conquered by it. Do not count on them. Leave them alone.

+1. Besides, GT sounds more like Nitecore.

Trebuchet is the evolution of the ancient catapult.

None of these names are doing it for me, you want something that is more then an in joke, something that suggests what it is and can expand the audience for the product by making people curious to look up what it means. The closest name from above would be the BLF GT (Giga Thrower) except that outside the flashlight world knows what throw means.
For a new product you want a name that makes people curious what it is. Once its a popular product then you can choose edge-y in world jargon.

Good. I’d only get a Penetrator if it was 10mm HV.

Get the reference, get a cookie! Beer

I’ve added my vote, I won’t vote twice, I didn’t do a write-in candidate, I WILL accept the winning name even if it isn’t the one I chose.

My suggested name: UranusFlame

I’m ^Gurthang and I approved this vote.

How about creating a “Q” series of lights, we have the Q8, could make this one Q10 and if the 14500 based (Q8’s smaller brother) eventuates a Q6.
Just a thought Beer

Added BLF MT and BMT

No the Q is for Quad, a Q4/6 is AA sized and Q10 would be 26650 sized Wink

Sometimes imitation is the best form of flattery, so why not call it the BLF Model S Big Smile
