Great news Martin, can you ask them if they can offer just the head part?
Is that interchangeable with Convoy’s C8?

They should make both copper and brass. I like SST40 more. Please make sure that the flashlight is designed to tailstand. Looking forward to that ‘competitive price’. Cash

Would there be any way to change the metal switch out for a conventional rubber switch? A warm white lighted switch will go well with the copper or brass.

I'm interested but price sensitive.  Prefer the XP-L unless they find a warmish (~5000K) SST-40.  Prefer Brass over Copper.

Prefer sst40 but xpl is fine also.
Thanks.

Also wouldn’t mind if there was no engraved branding.

Empty hosts if possible, else I dont care what emitter type (will be ripped out)

What might be the approximate weight of the C8 copper and C8 brass?

For reference: the Astrolux C8 aluminum weighs somewhere between 150-160 grams (without batteries)

Then the C8 copper might weigh around 450g and the C8 brass around 400g.

Interested in copper, with XP-L Hi 5A3… I know that is a stretch. I hope it tail stands, that switch almost looks like it might not.

FW1A, LH351D 4000k (second favorite)
FW3A, LH351D 3500k
FW3A, SST20 FD2 4000k
FW3A, Nichia 4000k sw40 r9080 (favorite light!)
FW3A, Cree XP-L Hi 5A3
Emisar D4V2, SST20 4000k
S2+, XM-L2 T6 4C

That would be sweet. Add a few more fins while at it as the SBT90.2 gets hot.
