I am glad they took care of you. I like the bezel it came with. I am hard on my lights, so I am sure I will need it.

Please tell us when you receive the copper bezel, if it really is copper.

First time buying from fireflies, we’ll see how quickly they send it out.

Agreed as they already were making them. They saved a few bucks at the cost of losing sales and customers

@fireflies

I’m sure they changed it to stainless steel not for the reason to save a few bucks. The cost difference is pennies. I’m sure they decided on stainless steel for the added protection from drops. However, they should have seeked the input from the community or at least informed us. The stainless steel bezel does look good on the copper though.

I cant believe everyone went off the deep end so quick, wait yes I can. I agree with SKV89, considering tooling it may even be more to do stainless? Good on FF for offering up the copper bezels though. After all, i’m sure everyone complaining is planning on the light being a shelf queen, in which case they should have their bezel of choice Wink

Lol, that escalated pretty quickly . The power of the internet at our fingertips Smile but no, really, “all copper” means just that. I bought it with the intent of being a shelf queen, next to my other copper shelf queens. I have other lights for daily use. If we ordered a car with a specific color and it was delivered with a two toned paint scheme, the majority of us would livid Smile

I bought the light because of the 100% copper and I expected it to be 100% copper because that’s what the description said and what I paid for. Did you even buy one? Now fireflies did say they would send me a copper bezel so we’ll see if they actually send it .

I wasn’t implying that they shouldn’t have said something in advance. Just saying that their reasoning isn’t completely off base and I don’t think they did it to “save a buck” or deceive people. Clearly if they are going to send you an additional bezel their intentions are probably good. They have a reasonably good track record for eventually making things right so you should give them the benefit of doubt.

I’ll let you know how I like my Ti version, maybe it will come with your copper bezel Smile

Or maybe fireflies send you the light together with my battery that they promised to refund me.

Why are you guys thinking that’s an aluminum bezel? It looks like machined stainless steel to me. I also don’t see why titanium would be needed to protect from drops for a heavy copper flashlight. Stainless steel is damn strong, definitely a far superior choice than copper or aluminum for a bezel. Titanium might be lighter and have higher tensile strength, but it is more susceptible to scratching than stainless steel.

I’m actually really glad they chose to use stainless steel for the bezel. The fact that they secretly rolled it out while marketing the light to have a fully copper bezel is wrong, but at least they’re resolving the issue for those who want all copper.

Got mine two E07 lights today, one Ti and one CU.
Very nice lights, but I also would have like to get the Copper bezel on the Copper version.
Now my E07-family is full.

Every time I’ve been tempted to pull the trigger on a fireflies I end up reading about some issue, and the list seems pretty long.
I almost bought a V2 eo7 when I read about the upcoming Cu & Ti versions, so I waited. I almost bought a copper version but nobody had
one in hand yet, so I waited. Now people are getting their lights, and we have “bezelgate”.
Guess I’ll wait some more…..
So far I’m a very satisfied non-customer of fireflies lights!!

And their website STILL has no mention of a different metal for the bezel of the copper light!

I would remove your screen shot, it has all your details, unless of course, you dont care about unexpected shipment of flashlights to your house.

I waited just like you because of the QC issues. Frankly any company is going to have some of those issues, what I find somewhat refreshing is that they acknowledge the issues. They seem to keep batches small and correct production issues fairly quickly, and honestly I see far better customer service out of them compared to most manufacturers. They should definitely update the website, but sometimes running a small business is hard so I am sympathetic.

Mind weighing a stock, the Ti, and Cu? I ordered a Ti body + Cu head from Vinh and am curious what I’m getting myself into, I was intending it to replace my current E07 as an EDC.
