Yeah, I though it was published, but maybe Freeme only said it in a PM.

Anyway, it was way under $100 so it was quite a good value. A bargain even. No other light like this comes close to this price.

Maybe that is vague enough without giving too much away? Lol

I can’t remember for sure if it was public or not. I’m not sure it matters at this point since it doesn’t look like it’ll ever be made. It was a really good price for a light that’s like a premium Q8 in style and output.

The low mode should be lower.

I don’t understand how all of the group buys get abandoned all of a sudden. Some kind of an update would be nice. Even an update saying “we need more people to sign up” or “group buy is off”…. SOMETHING

Dang that sucks! I was really wanting a few of these. I haven’t gone through all of the messages on here, rather I just look at the top of the first post for updates. Thanks for the impromptu update leaftye

Yeah, this one just has a special look to it. Compact and cool.

Yeah, but how come the title is changed to “Group Buy 2018”? So it’s not completely cancelled?

The question mark at the end means “maybe”.

So who knows? Maybe costs will drop and it will look profitable again. Party

If they ever resuscitate this one I'm interested.   People need to show more love if they want this light to happen.  Any discontinued project can be revived if there is enough interest.

I guess if you really want a light in this format you can get a Haikelite MT03 or this cheap Q30 model.

It's one of those things.  I really like the look and color combo of the UT03.   Not a fan of the Haikelite look myself.

Would be nice if Sofirn could pick up the design and color and go with it.  They seem to be able to move really fast when they want to do something.  I already have nine of Sofirns lights, one more would make it a good number

The MT03 is a great light with excellent heat sinking mass and fins. However, I also want the UT03 because of the different styling and compact form factor. Would be great if Sofirn can make something similar but unfortunately they can’t copy the styling because it’s a different brand.

However, I would rather see a Sofirn SP70 triple first before this.
