Another dedicated thrower (Reflector)

Hello friends! Smile

After a long time without posting for a lot of work!

I share with you a full mod made on a TN42, which came to my hands with just over 590 kcds (at 6 meters completely standard)

As a good lover of throwers Evil I decided to make a full mod …

For that I set myself the goal of preserving all the exterior aesthetics of the flashlight and also the functioning, for this I had to replace the driver, led, and other steps in this type of mods, also a lot of fine focus work, I decided to sacrifice some lumens to gain throw…

The only thing that lost with respect to the original flashlight was the back light of the switch ( I don’t like it ) as a result of all this, that I have been working for several days I achieve the impressive figure of 1.018.800 cd (ANSI) traslated into 2018.7 mts of throw Shocked (Yes! I verify the proper functioning of the luxmeter and works well) Smile

I share some images, sorry for the quality (phone camera)

Thank you for reading

Beam at 90mts

90 mts to the antenna (more height)

460 mts according Google Earth

550 mts according Google Earth

1250 mts according Google Earth

Some to the sky

Wow that thing is amazing. To bad we can’t get these LEDs anymore. Would be perfect for the blf gt.

Blf has changed a lot since I've been here. Lots of snow flakes and easily offended over nothing. When the forum use to be great and people joked around and could take a joke. It's a forum it's not that serious. Let's make BLF great again!
