Greetings from Mackay

Greetings fellow addicts. Tongue out

I'm also going through a buying frenzy phase again inspired by those amazing XML LED's. Bought 11 lights in the last couple of weeks alone.

Thanks mate. Yeah the ones from DX are still coming and coming..... But because I'm impatient, I bought some from OZ and ebay so have a few already.

I did write more in my first post, but the text vanished into thin air. Oh well, it was nothing important.

Hi JM, I got an Ultrafire 501B with XM-LT6, UF 502B with XM-LU2, UF 502B with SSC P7, UF KF-T60 HA-II XM-LT60, Trustfire TR-3T6, Streamlight Microstream (AAA), Romisen RC A5 Q5 (AA), and a bunch of multi LED hat clip on lights.

Some are for bike riding, bush walking, night jogging and some just cos they're bright. The Trustfire 3T6 has arrived and it's awesome!

Well all my lights have arrived now. It's interesting to see the different flood or spot out of the different T6's. They all roughly put out the same amount of light, but some are more floody than others. The Trustfire 3T6 though is still the most awesome.

Kind of a restart really. I've been on CPF since 2004 but have been away from the hobby for a while. Then these XML LEDs come out and blow all my old lights away, though I still use my old Fenix L1 (1xAA) on a regular basis. How LED technology has improved over the years has been amazing to watch.
