That is true I know Lumintop did sell a lot to a person in South Africa. He selling it now for $700 plus with batteries included. Convert back to rand will give you around R8900.

I just want to OFFICIALLY state –

I will happily sell my BLF GT with 8 batteries for only $695 USD (plus shipping). I’ll even include a neoprene flashlight hat.

Just send me a PM. Big Smile

I live in Kuching and i never knew we had “BRUSSELS EUROPEAN MAIL CENTRE” in here.. it surprised my actually why many GTs were sent to Kuching then transit to Euro…

Hey Khuan. I live in Kch too !

Quite surprising to see that some GTs were sent through Kch before flying off to other countries.

Has your GT arrived ?
Any good spots around town to test out the range ? Big Smile

Hey kebal_omega, nice to know some1 in here was from Kuching!
I just got my GT last week. Its really hard to find a suitable place in town to test out the range.. maybe Santubong or Damai?

Very nice shots. Test mine last night at a distance of 1.4km by lighting up a bus with huge reflectors on it. At that distance the reflectors on the bus was so clearly visible.

Yes, I am supposed to get a call from Lumintop tonight and we are going to talk about these sales and try to find a good compromise for all.

Can you discuss spare parts issue? My GT is unusable because of poor head packaging and concrete hit. I can not put tube in. I wrote email to leo at lumintop, but no response since one week.

Wow, they really want to charge $325 plus shipping?

Maybe that will stop people outside of the group buy from buying them. Lol

You filled out the Survey? They are still sorting through the issues.

Just a matter of time. I have been talking with china every night till I go to bed pretty much getting things back on track.

Yes, the retail price of the light will be $325 after the Group buy is what they are telling me. The costs have been much higher then expected and that is the price the light will cost to be profitable for them. At this point their goal is to minimize losses with this GB, they have given up on making a profit during the GB.

I think we got a great price on this big light, I was expecting higher price once I saw the size and quality of the light. And 157 $ with shipping is a barging I think. Sadly the communication made some people complain ( me too) about the group buy. Still in the end I think we all will thank the team, Lumintop and Neal for the great effort.

Thanks !

These boots that Jason (I think it was Jason) linked to in Part 1 worked perfect in my GT – diameter and height-wise. No trimming of the boot flange was necessary. With a pair of nubber pliers, (you could probably use toe trimmers) I clipped about .100 to .120” off the center nub. Without that clip, the boot nub pushes the switch ON when the ring nut is tightened. I like it now better than the original for two reasons. There is no longer any “free play” before the switch plunger is actually moved after you begin to push the boot. Switch “click” is almost immediate and has a much cleaner ON & OFF tactile feel. I love the entire boot being lite up green. Much easier to see.

When putting the ring nut over the boot O.D., it’s a bit tight. A bit of Honda Spray Polish made it much easier.

I got one GT with the solid Black boot. I submitted a survey form because Neil said he was going to ship a new boot and didn’t. I no longer need it so my survey form can be ignored if it’s practical to do so. No big deal either way.

Thanks, Jason.
