Group buy feeler for trustfire-trs700 ending early August. (canceled due to shipping costs)

OK this is a NO GO they want $35 for shipping and won’t come down because of it being over 2 Kilo’s they can’t ship it China Post so it’s $35 shipping for a total of $108. That’s only $7 cheaper than Fast Tech and well Fast Tech is fast.

I just sent a request for price quotes for this light it’s the Trustfire TRS700 7x Dimming/Diving light. 3 26650 big head handle style light.

Individual shipping, individual paypal payment, ending sometime in early August. Shipping would be China Post and it’s heavy so expect something like $20 if we are lucky, It comes with it’s own case too.

This is the same light on Fast Tech. $115 after BLF coupon.

If anyone wants to put out feelers on other forums go for it.

I’m a junky, I mod lights so I can sell lights so I can buy more light to mod so I can sell lights to buy more lights to mod.

Depending on the output and throw, I may consider this. I’m waiting on JMac’s thoughts of it though since he bought one.

Thanks for the effort on this very nice light, 18sixfifty Smile

I am waiting for JM's review before I jump in (real output, how does it look inside, is it easily moddable etc.), but if it is all nice, I am highly interested.

Just one update right now the price for the light is set at $72.88 but their shipping cost is too high with DHL so they are going to get back to me with shipping via China Post. I am trying to get a total cost of $90. If it’s more than that then I am not going to do the group buy.

Sounds good. I haven’t put too much thought into how best to mod this one. But when there is a will there is a way. J)

I will put you down as a maybe. I can tell you though that there is no way they will be up for a custom run for the few lights we will be buying.

i can only find his short one on fasttech’s site, and some text that says coming soon on his review blog

I wish it were 4×18650, and had some more fin surface area, but otherwise seems awesome

If you guys are still interested, there's another group buy.  I think you'll like the price, and hopefully you'll appreciate the updated XM-L2 emitters.

The low mode should be lower.
