The MT07S is pretty similar to the MT03, but it looks a lot nicer in my opinion.

Notice the transition in the middle of the head, it has a nice 45° angle to it rather than a 90° step. It has all the fins in place. The fins are a little shorter in certain areas. The button looks very nice. The tail cap has several flats on it which look nicer than the round MT03 tail cap. I think you get my point. It’s the little tweaks and refinements that can make a big difference.

I haven’t checked into this thread for a while, but after your post I’m now on the fence about the light. My first impression was that there’s something ‘clumsy’ about its appearance (in lack of a better word)… a bit like something that a child assembled out of Lego bricks, before they ran out of round parts for one of the fins. Or maybe a concept study for a 1970s electric Braun shaver that was never realised. It is really difficult for me to see it as anything other than an unfinished prototype. At the beginning I still thought that was something that gave it a special charm, but after reading your observations I’m starting to wonder whether I was just fooling myself, in order to justify adding yet another lumens monster to my collection.

The design of the MT07S is in a completely different league, and after seeing the photo and reading about it, I had to put my name on the list.

Once I started collecting flashlights, I realised that it would be nice to have one or two of several different types, so I can see which lights fit which purpose. At the moment I’ve already got two floody high lumens lights and I wouldn’t normally need another one, but it annoys me that they don’t have a decent medium mode. It is understandable that a light won’t run in turbo very long (and I usually only use it for short bursts), but if a light puts out 10k lumens, I want it to be able to run at 25% – 30% of that for a sustained amount of time, instead of the 1000 or 1500lm that are easily put out by much cheaper lights. The MT03 hits that sweet spot very nicely with its 2700 lumens mode.

Decisions, decisions…

Please sign me up for a NW. Figure I'll save $45 on upgrading the LED's.

I just hope they improved the switch boot - I got a MT03 II and the center post inside the boot is way too narrow, so you have to press it dead on in the middle to get it proper.

 

Pleaseeeee ask them to look at the switch boot and fix if possible. For ramping UI's, it's a pain.

 

Thanks for the deal though!!

If you change the driver out, then yes. Is that what your asking?

 I should add I love my MT03 II! It's built like a tank, anodizing seems very good, and I do like the styling. Yes - mine has a FET+1 driver replacement running NarsilM with XHP70.2 P2's and does over 25K lumens.

It's overall smaller than a Q8, but wider head, and weighs 50% more at 600g vs. 400g for the Q8, but every gram is worth it.

Tom, are you referring to this right? Do you want them to increase the diameter or overall length?

Yep, that stem or plunger, whatever we want to call it. It's too thin, and you can tell it bends over easy, so if you don't apply force in the center and straight down, it doesn't engage the switch as well. I even tried adding a dab of a good epoxy to the tip of that stem, thinking it was just short, but it made little difference. Maybe lengthening it a bit would help as well. 

My preference is for an easier activated switch, but some may want it stiffer to avoid accidental activation's, which is fine, but the full depressed distance to activation should be short. I got ramping UI's on some stiff switch lights - it works, but it concerns me how well it will hold up. Some are known to fail like the Manker U21, and other Manker models. They tend to fail and they also are stiffer than average.

Also the switch rubber boot is big, really big - think that's part of the issue why the stem has to be thicker. Love the easy 4 screw mount though - no scratching a ring!!

Way better!!

So I ended up ordering replacement LED's for this new MT03 II anyways Facepalm . It's hard not to get the best out there available. Bought 3 XHP70.2 P2 5700K 70+ CRI LEDs from Arrow - for under $10 each, link here: https://www.arrow.com/en/products/xhp70b-00-0000-0d0bp20e2/cree

Look at the 500+ price, wow: $6.86

About the white anodization. It appears to be matte on the pictures, is it matte?

It should look like matte silver in real life.

How about the feel? Is it like the desert tan S2+?

Might have to consider getting my first light in white.

My MT02 in silver/white appears to be matte/satin. You can feel a very fine rough surface compared to the standard black anodisation lights. It looks and feels very nice.
