1 Year Anniversary Giveaway Winner Posted

On 3-16-16, I’ll have been a member of this forum for one year. In this year, I’ve learned to solder, to mod/build lights, and how awesome a lot of the members of this forum are. Everything I’ve learned has been from reading this forum and asking a question hear and there. I’ve not very advanced in the art of building…just basic lights. The light I’m going to giveaway will have the following specs:

Eagle Eye X6 Host
3xNichia 219C on Noctigon XP32
Aluminum Heatsink
17mm fet+1 Driver Spring Bypassed
Tail Spring Bypassed

The heatsink will be glued to the host with thermal adhesive and the XP32 will be glued to the heatsink with thermal adhesive as well. Rules for the giveaway…

1. Must have been a member before March 10th.
2. Must only post once.
3. Must post I’m in and what your favorite light is.

I would like to limit this light to the US only but that would be unfair to a lot of the non US members that have contributed to this forum. However, shipping will be free via priority mail in the US only…if you live outside of the US…depending on the price of shipping, I may ship for free or we may have to split it. This giveaway will run from today until Friday 3-18-16 at 6pm/1800 Central Standard Time. After 6pm I’ll use random.org to generate the winning number. If you have any questions…please pm me.

I’m in! My favorite light is the copper X5, although I don’t have one. Sad I’m sure this triple X6 will quickly become my favorite, once I have it in my hands. Innocent

Edit: Just changed my mind… well… not really changed my mind, more like remembered. My all-time favorite light (that I’ve actually owned) is the Lumintop SD10 BLF Edition from the WWEFANS group buy. Still looking to replace that one, since I sold it to a friend.

And my favorite is still my Arc AAA “snow white” that goes everywhere, with an Energizer lithium primary that lasts forever.

My favorite light is my weird Marty Feldman X6 aspheric. It makes everyone giggle whether it off because it looks so strange or it’s on and looks like it could light a cigarette at 100 yds.

I don’t have anything like what you’re giving away though! Thanks for the chance.

In! I don’t have an X6 yet…

Current favorite light is a difficult question.

I guess that could be my Convoy S3 XP-G2 triple; but it never gets used.
Or maybe the TrustFire F20 with XM-L2 and three mode 101-AK driver. It’s my true EDC and gets used more than any other.
Maybe my 75mm UniqeFire 1508, but it hasn’t been assembled yet.

Keepin’ the “B” in BLF

It sounds like the XM LEDs won’t really be suitable for flashlight use. Pity…

I’m in! My favorite light depends on the weather (more specific the pocket-size it has to fit in). And in the heavy jacket I wear in this weather that will be the old bored-out Surefire 6P Defender with Eagletac drop-in. When the temperature rises in the double digits (Celcius), I’m not sure (yet). There are some “new kids on the block”, such as the above-mentioned X5, but also quite a few old warriors that have served me well.

You are a flashaholic if you are forced to come out of the closet, to make room for more flashlights.

I’m in :-D.

My favorite light right now is a EE A6 with a BLF A6 FET+7135 driver, because of the great range of output, and it’s my first triple that I reflowed myself.

Thanks for the giveaway.

I’m in! Favorite right now is my Thorfire C8s, modded with neutral XM-L2, OP reflector, bypassed tailspring, and Qlite/Guppydrv driver. First real mod I’ve done, and it came out exactly as I hoped. Cool

I’m in! Smile (I have a U.S.A. shipping address.) Favorite light at the moment is the armytek Tiara, C1, warm white. It definitely could do with a narrower beam (med throw) but is a good overall light with nicely spaced modes.

My gratitude to those who are willing and able to help others (in whatever way you can)! Being human is more than just existing for yourself. Smile

Thanks. I’d like to be in too, please. My favorite light is the Manker/BLF A6. The only thing that could make it marginally better would be if it had ToyKeepers Bistro UI.

Don't be confused, my Username has been changed from "Cone" to "T.H.Cone".  I'm still the same clown.

A chance to win a triple! I am in! Thank you!

My favorite light is a tricky one.

If I have to pick one, I’d go for the BLF A6.

Compact, Bright, great UI.

I’m in! Will of course split the shipping fee if I win.

My favorite I guess is my CooYoo Quantum, since it’s always in my pocket. But I have to admit to picking up my alu Kronos X6 and just play with it all the time, because I’m just so impressed by it Smile

I’m in! In the Uk so happy to pay UK shipping fees. Favourite light is probably going to be the one on its way at the moment – the NiteCore SM16GT – but it’s not here yet…. It could have been the Convoy C8, cos its good value, but actually (and perhaps a bit strangely) it’s my three Ultrafire Cree 7W cheap eBay torches, a couple of $ each direct, because at that price I could afford to get one each for my kids, and because of it they have loved going camping, peering at the stars, and walking at night, and so it’s had the most impact, and best bang for the buck…..
