This seems to be the circular one

Circular around the LED itself? Photo?

I can take a pic, but never attached it over here, so wonder what would be the easy way to do it, I’m on my phone right now

you’ll need to upload it on a file hosting website and drop the link here.

Is it this (CULPM1) – https://www.aliexpress.com/item/1005001417312893.html or this (SFT40) – https://www.aliexpress.com/item/32843177666.html

Sorry ,my fault, is the second one, so not for the culpm1, is the square one, at the beginning I haven’t seen the square inside the outer ring (sleepy lol); does that mean that buying new culpm1 gasket might improve the beam ?

It has the same thickness, but it won’t fit since it’s too small. No improvement. I just a play and increasing the thickness makes it much better, but haven’t yet found the correct thickness

I still wonder, how did barracuda be able have such a tight spot beam with a xplhi ,and others makers still not being able to simulate it? Maybe the end of the reflector where the led is sitting? Or what else could be? I still have others lights with different LEDs and none the same; at the beginning, there was blame that LEDs weren’t dedomed ,but now ,same issue

Maybe some kind of sheet underneath? Like a tested thickness ?
