thank you very much, I’d like to replace one or two reflectors with optics with a tight angle of emission, this light is too much flood for me.

Here are all my reviews on BLF

i didn’t read it correctly the first time, i think its not a problem if they are short, you can make some piece to put in there, i have the problem because thoe tir lenses i bought are bigger, so i have to remove the front galss

i bought all 5-packs of lenses from fasttech, to experiment with the angles (15, 30, 45, 60, 90 and 120, there is not 10 degree in fasttech) they are the same size the one you linked. they should arrive this or next week, so if you want to wait a little i will let you know the results and if i did manage to install them (i was planning to remove the front glass, as i don’t need a watertight light, and make a plate with five holes to fit the lenses… lets see if it works)

Hi totilde. How did your TIR swap go? Which angles did you go with?

Im going to replace the lenses in a similar light and would appreciate your input.

Hello!
Unfortunately it was not a success… I explain
I received three 5 lenses packs (15, 30 and 120 degrees) whithout specs that don’t fit the XML . Well, actually they fit, but they are too big, so it’s almost impossible to center them. I tried a ceiling beamshot, but when I touched the light the tirs fell down… I gave up
I also received one tir designed for the XML (https://www.fasttech.com/products/1144800) and it does perfectly fit, and makes a good beam. The problem is that I have only one of these so I can’t check in this light. (I checked in a c8, typical tir beam profile, an even spot)
For the size, there is no problem, there’s plenty of room for them, and holding them in place is very easy too, they have 4 “legs” in the bottom designed to fit around the square part of the emitter, so It stays perfectly centered and its even possible to glue them there. The thing I don’t like much is that it is a 30 degree…

I’m going to order 4 more to complete it, but dont know when ( im waiting to make a bigger order) If you need some measurements, let me know and I take the vernier in a second.

Mooooooo
