Nice pick up ... Looks interesting ...  

 Always remember , the easiest thing in the world to do , is to expel hot air from your lungs and through some vocal chords ..
The resulting sound may , or may not be worth listening too ….

That looks very cool and very expensive.

Now that's something different in reflector design. I just built a dual 18650 light in a TR-1200 body and even a OP 52mm reflector shoots a tight (not a pinpoint shooter but throws really better than >40mm lights) beam. This advanced reflector design should give something even better. I were thinking of getting a Masterpiece Pro one day and this can be a way better pick for me.

Squidboy you beat me to it !! I was just about to post this myself after seeing the post on facebook.

Looks like a very nice light but i agree with fishinfool looks very expensive

Yeah it doesn't look like it's going to be cheap does it...bah! Silly

 

I wonder if the beam will be odd with the lines separating the textured and smooth parts of the reflector...

Apparently it's going to be sub $100, but I suspect not by much.
