Man I log in every two weeks to see if you’ve come up with a smaller light A la Mac or Gizmo,

Ever considered it? Any chance in a custom host?

Update on our C8 series…. here are some images of the prototype run. We should have this one ready next week….or sooner if Boots will get to work! (No one needs to tell her I said that. Ughh ) Hoping these will work well with the XHP series LEDs, hence all the grooves for cooling. Enjoy!

The business end….

Cut it off & flipped it around the udder way….. shortcut! We are using the body here for a jig. ….

Its good to see the C8 taking shape. Is it going to use a 26650 battery?

Hi Steve! We are doing both, a 20700 and a 26650 on the C8. Wink The one in the images is for 20700. The 26650 is a little different looking and built somewhat different. Keeping the design right for maximum cooling has become a challenge but we seem to be on track.

We have had a lot of requests for a “SMOOTH TLSA9” ….. So we just added “Vanilla Smooth” to the series. This one is slick except for the cooling grooves on the head and we felt those just had to remain. At around 3300 lumens… we have to get rid of the heat.

Pick you Battery Bore and your Tint…. … and add this code for a nice discount on any TLSA9 Flashlight! BLF-TLSA9V Code ends Nov 7.

Thank you for the continued support we appreciate each of you. TL

TL,

Your lights are beautiful.
I especially like the Aluminum ones with the Copper insert in the head like the one that you had a special on a few posts back (7/27/2017).

I am going to make one of these mine…I just need to decide which one suits me best, and how much I can spend.

Excellent work.

I’m sure Boots is keeping you well nourished TL to keep you fit and healthy whilst chained to your machine 24 hours a day. Silly

You must have had an early new year watching the Sydney fireworks.
I spent new years round a fire in the bush with a few mates. The wife went to bed early. Smile

Hi Steve… Just caught it on the news. Nice though!! If you had been in the bush here almost anywhere in the USA… you would have needed 2 large fires!!! Brrrrrr!!!

Yep… Boots crashed at her typical 9 PM…. The dog and I watched the new year come in. Wink Stay Well! Dan
