Hey guys… any quick advice as to whether to get the ’35 or the ’70? I didn’t know I had a choice. Big Smile

I imagine the ’35 would have more throw, but the ’70 would just belt out twice the lemons.

Anyone see any beamshots?

Unfortunately there are no beam shots yet. Well, what wows you more in general? Remember, the 35 has way more lumens than regular throwers, and the 70 probably has way more throw than many flood lights. If I had to pick one, it would be the 70. Big Smile

I agree, Haikelite has struck an uncommon middle ground. With XHP35 this light is going to be similar to single XHP70.2 thrower with dedomed emitter with a really deep reflector. With slightly lower efficacy. And with size of a XHP70.2 thrower with moderately deep reflector. With XHP70.2 – I don’t see a similar light.
Personally I’m more into throwers, so I’d probably pick 35. But judging by GB feeler most prefer 70 and frankly – I’m not surprised.

I’m wondering about throw compared to, say, a stock L2, or general output of, say, a stock L6.

Hell, both are impressive.

I got an L2, so if throw is about on par with that, I’d rather go floodier with the ’70. If not, if the ’35 is throwier than even the L2, I’d rather get the ’35 then.

Ohhhhh, decisions, decisions… Shocked

It seems we can choose the color and the emitters. Since I voted for green the color to choose is obvious but not sure yet about the emitters.

I voted for green, too, and picked the ’35s. Figure that should have some serious throw…

The XHP35 will throw better but the XHP70.2 isn’t as floody as the XHP70.
It’s a difficult decision (I’m missing the scratching head emoticon too now Party )

As I mentioned to Dale, I’ll probably get whichever one now and then just buy the other later, to see the difference. Big Smile

I have no idea what CT/tint they are, neither the 35s nor 70s, so I hope I chose right. Big Smile

I decided to go for the XHP35 HI too. I’m living at the country side and prefer throw over flood. I hope the color is CW or NW.

Please be careful, and don’t hold the MT09R too close to your wings when flying. This light can get hot and melt the wax, and you know… you’ve been there before… The fall was not so nice I think… You don’t want to do that again right…? Big Smile
Congratulations Icarus! Party

Lightbringer and me were the winners of this giveaway but until now we didn’t get our lights. Sad I sent Dale a message more than a week ago but didn’t get a reply yet. Sad If the lights were sent as promised even with the slow boat from China they should have been here by now. SadSadSad

Hey Icarus. Another member just posted on the group buy thread that tracking showed progress. It seems a lot of lights were stuck in China during Chinese New Year, so maybe yours and Lightbringer’s lights are finally on your way.

Woohoo!

Is that the “Department of Happiness”(!!) message I just saw? Kewl if so. Big Smile

Might there be any tracking numbers? I could get a “Niner Countdown” going. Big Smile

Yep that’s the one. Tracking number… pfff… don’t count on it I’d say. Dale seems to be not so responsive. After the Chinese New Year, I would not be surprised if he’s flooded with mails. Also due to issues with these lights he’s probably up to his neck figuring out what is going on.

Eh, that’s fine. If I get it, I’ll consider myself ahead of the game. Big Smile

Do you know if they were sent? I hadn’t heard anything either way.

I emailed him a while ago, but all the talk of CNY, all the hoo-ha about how many lumens, lights just flashing a few times when the tailcap’d be screwed on, “Dude, Where’s My Charger?”, an errant Mystery Capacitor, etc., I kinda let it slip.

Wow, yeah, this is like from back in December… ouch.

Dale sent me a message regarding shipping address and my mobile number on 28th December. He said he would declare the light low value but didn’t give a shipping date. If he really shipped the light let’s say early January it should have been here now. Since Dale doesn’t reply my messages (I sent 2 in the meantime) I doubt our lights shipped. Sad

Ugh, that’s not happy news.

The Zen way of looking at it is that I’m getting what I paid for, but it’s still a letdown.

Wonder what happened to Dale? With the charlie foxtrot going on, did he pop a coupla beers and slide down the emergency chute or something?
