Across the board the level of builds this year is exceptional. It would’ve sucked being a judge this year. Sick And now I get to cast my single vote across all 3 catagories.… hmmm…. I’m going to have to go back and read the threads again before making my decision Steve

Ohh boy! Whoever is getting that TO50R is getting one of the best flashlights I have ever used. Even flood, High CRI with acceptable R9 and R12,a 4800 mAh 21700 battery and a simple, easy to use UI with the only downside being you have to go THROUGH strobes to electronically lock out your light. The electrical lockout issue is alleviated via mechanical lockout. It even comes with a good nylon case for belt mounting amd protection.

My vote went to the build that I find the most under-appreciated by the judges.
CNCman.

Stock-like looks, staggering performance improvement. And all of that thanks to a smart idea.

Voted! For me! Nah. Who are we kidding here? I overpromised and underperformed. One build caught my eye specifically due to how much of a pain in the ass the material is to work with. I think you all can guess who I voted for :D.

I do love my Wuben TO50R and my son loves his, but I must be blind or something, as I do not see a TO50R Wuben listed as an available prize. ??? There was a TO50R available in last year’s competition, but for this year the only Wuben I see is the T70 + Extension Tube & Extra Cell; the 9th item in the available prizes list.

OMG 1 vote in it lol!
I’d just to say a few words, it was a pleasure to help with this years competition – there were some very fine entries, and it was horrible having to pick winners, At the top it was very close from all the judges really.
I’d like to thank all the donators of prizes for their kindness and CRX for basically doing all of it, and dealing with us judges!

But most of all thanks to the entrants, without you there would be no competition at all and some of your lights are just amazing, well they all are, but some more than others! Smile

I hope you get all your prizes swiftly sent out and arriving and that you enjoy them!
I also hope to see you enter again next year and maybe me, and CRX will be joining you so they may need someone to run it…. hint hint….. Silly

Is this an offer? I’d do it as I’m pretty much happy with the lights I have with the only changes being the swap to buck/boost drivers with anduril on some of my lights when it becomes available. I just don’t have any industry connections so I have no idea how I’d arrange for the prizes.

Oh goodness, thanks for the selection guys! I really felt this could go many different ways and truly close. Seriously, I’m in awe of what some of you guys put together. grin, pinkpanda3310, and MRsDNF showing some magnificent lathe work. Some really nice 3D print builds. Lots of hard hand-work. Well done everyone!
