So.. what samples did M4D MAX receive there. Are they the same stage as the three that just got sent out to TLF&BLF? My confusion is real. xD

The pictures Martin posted are the actual lights before it was mailed to him, TK and Bluzie (of TLF).

Thanks to the team for their hard work on this project. I’m a late comer to the party, but I don’t think I’d have the time or patience to pull this off. Glad someone does, though.

I’m not sure why the clip was changed, but I’m hoping it can be changed back. It looks like the clip ring sticks out now, and a dark coating of some sort was added, and there’s an extra hole. There’s a high chance it’s too late to change again though.

I agree with TK here. There doesn’t seem to be any reason for the clip to change, and the previous version was better:

  • The new one doesn’t appear to fit very well. The ring area is wider and sticks out from the body of the light.
  • Black paint has been added. We discussed black paint before. Most of us do not want black paint on the clip.

It’s like an unlabeled box of choclates… you never know what you’ve got till you bite into it. Shocked
Or, in this case; receive it. Facepalm

I would rather have the silver clip like on the bunny button picture several pages ago. I’ll still buy it, but I’d like the silver clip better.

Yeah.

Deanodized clip would be best.

The clip won't stop me, but I won't be happy about it, if I ultimately receive lights with clips like the one pictured most recently. A shame; nobody told them there was anything wrong with the clips.

Nothing as far as I am concerned.

I’m not a clip guy, they don’t matter much to me, but that one doesn’t look good. For those that like them, I hope those pictures don’t represent what you will get. The others looked much better, and I can’t fathom what prompted the change, so late in the game.
