Any info about UniqueFire UF-T20?

I have spotted this light for first time. I dont know if any other person made a thread about it

http://www.manafont.com/product_info.php/uniquefire-uft20-cree-xml-led-1…

Any info about it´s internals? Zooming mechanism (looks twisty type), pill desing?

The head has 44mm diammeter

EDIT: is a xm-l zooming light, 1×18650, 3 mode

That’s pretty cool. Hopefully someone with a ZY C10 will get it and report back.

i think..its a wolfeyes clone…if this will be with the glass optic,and good driver led,this will the best cheap zooming flashlite..i think.
cos the original wolfeyes is the best i know…perfect..and the new model raptor tac is also much better…i will buy this one for trial…perfect flashlite!!!

Id direct drived T6 fries in it Ill replace it with directly driven R5 to see will it fry.
Than with Q5/R2 Shocked

Anybody got that light already?
SOmehow I have great expectations regarding its performance… (I dont expect it to be some superg thrower, but nevertheless…)

I wonder how it will do at 150 meters.

What do you more experienced guys think about making it direct drive?

I also have C10 (made it DD), but I think this could be brighter at some reasonable distance, I mean wider hotspot, I dont know. I know it wont outhrow C10.

But C10 has rather small hotspot on shorter distances. ANd if you unfocus it, its often to dim. Its a great thrower, on the other hand.

Unlike C10, it says that it has mode-memory.
And again blinking mode, aaaargh. LIke someone wold ever need it with that light :000

Just another thought about XML zoomies in general (although it comes from a guy who bought 5 different XML zoomies in last 2 days Shocked this forum is guilty for that)
I think XMl zoomies are nothing special.
Aspherics with XREs give exceptional throw.
YOu cannot expect such throw or anything similar with similar diammeter aspheric lens and XML.

Yes it has nice spill. But for example KE5 with XML, it throws 200 meters without a problems, and it has lot of spill in the same time too. So it seems to me much stronger light and even lmore versatile light than XML zoomie
I tested few lights just this night. I compared it with Z5 XML zoomie.
ALl in all, i think XMLs place is in reflectors. Yeah there’s nice wide spill with aspheric zoomie, but I dont know, something is missing. (Like its a flashligt for kid or for a woman, hahha) Ill probably not be satisfied before we have XML zoomie with 60mm wide lens Smile

In reflector it simply seems and is more powerful. I think most people would prefer to walk around with XML in reflector, little focused, than with totaly unfocused zoomie, with a huge circle spill, walking like same braindead dummie with it Big Smile

I just paid for 2 to get it of my mind. (I took 2 because you actually save money when you buy 2 Wink Big Smile )

Seriously, why do you think the lens is plastic?

I don’t know about this one, but I wouldn’t be scared for the fact it has a plastic lens, there are very good plastic lenses, in fact I have been luckier with plastic lenses than with glass ones.

By the way, I didn’t hear very good things about the original, lets see how performs its clone.

Here’s one topic for discussion.
http://www.wolf-eyes.com/product/Night%20Hunter%20Detail.html

See cdi specs on that website.
How is it possible that both R2 and U2 versions have same lux???

Also nice review here http://www.candlepowerforums.com/vb/showthread.php?288369-Wolf-Eyes-Nigh...
it says that R2 version is way better than R5 version (and R5 version is maybe way better than this T6 version Smile )
All in all, its a XML T6 zoomie, If I had common sens I wouldnt buy it :o.

That configuration (XML zoomie in general) is good for bikes maybe, and for 14500 pocket lights. Although Sipik SK68 is more than enough for pocket light Shocked
I woudlike a flashlight where you push a hidden button, and pill rotates itself horisontally, flips itself u liek registration plates on Bond’s car, and, for example, XML emmiter gets switched with XRE emmiter Smile
Than you push hidden button again, you have green light, once more and you have ballon popping laser, etc.

I just ordered one. If the build is anything like the Wolfeyes, it should be worth a 22 dollar gamble.

I am hoping it will be a good general purpose XML flashlight without the hotspot and spill that is present with a reflectored light.

Thanks everyone for the heads-up and links.

In worst case scenario Ill swap it with some R2 (maybe even green emmiter), to make it a good thrower.
Its better looking than C10

I would be interested to see how that turned out. You might create a poor man’s Dereelight DBS XR-E aspherical.

The bezel diameter of the Dereelight is around 50mm and the UF-T20 is 45mm.

I’d like to do the same but I’m still trying to locate an XR-E R2 from a reputable source. You know of one? They’re hard to come by these days.

Got mine today. Gorgeous light and Damb good clone. Top quality brass pill and on high gets warm at about 10 minutes. I ran on high for 2 hours and got pretty warm,, but the led held. Gorgeous low artifact huge flood, beam is perfect square at 150 yards. It is a thrower !

Quality is awesome and greased orings. Worth every cent. Took almost 2 weeks from Manafont.

Came wrapped in red bubble pack and white box in a large bubble pack envelope. Lens is plastic, but perfect no artifacts it looks like glass, It’s a nice light for the $$$ … No pics yet …. Well made light, the pill that screws into the body is brass and Damb well built compared to my other Uniquefire lights……
