Lightweight aspheric thrower

Hi guys,
I’ve been looking for a B158B at a decent price for ages (like 1 year or so) but I gave up… they are out of production and there are just a few B158 (the one with the bumpy tube, which I don’t like) here and there for way too much money.

What I’m looking is basically a host with decent quality, not too big and as light as possible (so PMMA lens is better, but if it’s a glass one I can swap it later depending on how heavy it is), also the budget is limited. Yes, I’m basically looking for a B158B Sad which alternatives do I have?

I contacted Brinyte about 2 months ago regarding the B158B or la k there of them in the market. They assured me it was not discontinued and would be back in production soon. I have not looked for it since. Hopefully we will see them again.

UF-T20: smaller than the 1405, above.

Even smaller than the 1405, then, would be the Jaxman Z1.

Before B158B was out people were shaving B158 to save weight.

Definitely smaller XD i have the 1504 which is heavy enough, the 1405 is out of question Silly but now I remember about the small UF models… I even made a comparison long time ago!

75 mm
UF-1508: 1×18650/2×18650

67 mm
UF-1504: 1×26650
UF-1405: 2×26650

50 mm
UF-1503: 1×18650
UF-1406: 2×18650

38 mm
UF-1407: 1×18650
UF-1505: 1×18650
UF-T20: 1×18650


(Sizes are approximate)

So… One of the 3 smaller UF should should be an option:


The T20 should be 175g… Same as a convoy c8 basically

Ehm… You know what? I remembered the b158b was smaller :s

Well, it’s not big, but i thought it was the same size than a c8, but the head it’s actually quite bulkier…
It ahould be 280g :s well, i think i’ll just go for another light with 38mm lens then
