Without someone stepping in this is all Lumintop is able to produce. The same design over and over. So regardless of what we think about the process it’s necessary to get what we want.

I believe there was a fair amount of effort spent on communicating with Lumintop and actually getting the thing produced. I feel his contribution was a net positive to the project. I’ve had good experiences with his shop as well.

Yea that’s what I’ve read too in that long thread. He contributed a significant amount of time and effort on the project. If it weren’t for “him” facilitating the communications, the FW3A would still be in perpetual development state. Lumintop is known to be extremely bad at communicating. I made many purchases on that overseas online store and never had any bad experiences. But for these new FW3A, I will still buy it from Illumn to support our local shop and excellent customer service. Shipping is also unbelievably fast.

The logo on the switch is kind of cool.. not for me, but cool nonetheless.

BTW, how did you directly post a picture (as opposed to linking to an image hosting site). Maybe I’m not interpreting what I’m seeing correctly, but this seems to be what you’ve done.

It’s “direct” but I got it from a google image search I didn’t convert it to this.

Since we’re talking about nichia, is Gene gonna be adjusting emitter height in reflector or even new version is going to be full of artifacts?

Just noticed the pre-order for a copper Acebeam TK18 with great choice of emitters!

Looking forward to this!

That raw aluminum looks real nice. Do you plan to sell the xpl-hi 7A? I realize there is lower demand for warm white flashlights.

7A WW is not available from Lumintop, far too low numbers apparently.

Coupon code seems broke for the M61LL 219B Drop-In, or is it just me?

Glad to see another batch of these 219B drop-ins are getting made!

You should offer the 4500k R9080 instead. The 4000k has ugly red/pink? Tint if you know what I mean

Just pre-ordered a garish (sorry TK) purple XP-L HI 3D.
The light will be for my wife.
The switch cap for my FW3C (she’ll never know the difference, and you better not tell her Angry )
