[NLD] MT09R from Texas Ace

Pic

So I just opened this and didn’t get to try it out at night yet – but holy crap is this bright. I bought the light from the sale and it was modded by Texas Ace. 100% ramping, spring bypass, xhp70.2 5000K x 3, de-domed. It is insanely bright. Gets hot very fast.

The lighting doesn’t do it justice. The anodizing is a very pretty navy blue.

I freaking love mine. The best way I’ve been able to describe it; it’s “STUPID” bright. Cool

What is the light next to it in your picture?

Noctigon Meteor M43. The BLF Q8s bigger sister, and the smaller bigger sister of the MT09R.

Also, that is Navy Blue?

Mine looks much bolder than that, I couldn’t recognize it at first.

I love my MT09R and MT03 modded by TA. Super bright and good tint. I’m wondering with your dedomed, how does the tint look like and are there any artifacts? Would be nice to see your beamshots since you are the only one with the dedome!

It’s navy blue. Really pretty color in bright light. I’ll see if I can get a nice picture of the tint – it’s neutral white in the center and gets warmer around that.

The XHP70.2, compared to the Nichia 144AM at the same brightness, is a barf fest of tints and low CRI.

However, at 50% ramp, other than the much better color tint of the Nichia, I can’t even see the tint shift.

Same. Mf09r triple xhp70.2 and xhp35, even mt07s modded by TA. I couldnt be any happier.. brighter, reliable driver, and easy UI ( ramping ).

nice, the MT09R would be awesome if it had the TA driver from the beginning, a bit jealous of u all who has it. still like my xhp35 cw even tho it could been brighter.

Get the Lexel buck driver with NarsilM.

All the power of the FET TA driver, but with the efficiency to match.
