MY BLF GT IS ON THE WAY!!!!!!!!!!!

In Him (Jesus Christ) was life; and the life was the light of men. And the light shineth in darkness; and the darkness comprehended it not.

Thread closed for a while until tempers cool down. Meanwhile, those who made rude posts in this thread during the past few days should go back and delete them. Thanks.

Somebody just gave me a rude mark, and I haven’t even made a post today except one link for batteries!

This is outrageous Facepalm

Great news that people already receiving their GTs, at least now I can enjoy holidays with my family knowing that rest of the world will get their lights in January.

I posted most of this in another GT thread a few hours ago, but it’s worth repeating. Big Smile

My GT arrived 15 minutes ago! It’s bigger than I expected! Party

Use a short-bladed knife (or none) if you want to avoid cutting into the interior BLF GT box. It is a tight fit inside the outer carton.

Some quick comments:

The packaging is nice. The lens had a protective plastic film on it. My reflector is flawless and clean. The threads are super smooth. The lanyard attachment was already installed in the tripod hole. Party

FWIW, I signed up for email notification with DHL. At 09:15 I got an email that said “delivered, signed for.” I opened the front door and the box was on the porch. I never heard the doorbell or even the DHL truck.

My friend’s GT also arrived today. He stopped by and I couldn’t resist taking a few more photos.

The GT-Dumbbell weighs 7 lb 13 oz (3.54 kilos) loaded with 8 cells. Big Smile

Yes, we turned both heads on. Party I cut a circle from an expired credit card to keep the two carriers insulated from each other.


I discovered a budget-friendly GT cap in the pantry. Walmart’s ‘Great Value’ brand quick oats, 42 oz size.

It’s a perfect fit, and even creates an air bubble between the cap and lens if you don’t ‘burp’ it. Big Smile

I’ll adhere a circle of soft cloth inside it to further protect the lens from contact with the cap.

“Congratulations!” and “Thank You!” to GT-Team, Lumintop, and Neal! Thumbs Up

I just got a call from DHL and I won’t see mine until Tuesday. Well, actually my brother will get the first one. I really have no foreseen use for the light. I’ll see what the light is when I have his in hand.

My GT showed up about 20 minutes ago. Unboxed and loaded with 30Qs. Everything is perfect. Can’t wait till dark.

I posted already in another thread, but the registered mail European GT’s will be shipped in January. And if you consider a shipping time of 3 weeks at least, we have to wait for a while. Luckily we can follow the joy of the US members, as the GT is something special.
