Trustfire X6. . . Champagne on a beer budget.


So I was goofing off tonight. Usually playing with my Fenix, Thrunite, or BTU. . Just for fun I broke out the X6. Threw some Xstars in it & went outside. For a economical thrower, the X6 is tough to beat. Very easy to de-dome & gets out there really well. Anyone looking for a good thrower without breaking your bank account? Definately check them out.

Nice throw with good spill. Lights like DEFT X are excellent throwers, but I like some spill and a good size hot spot. 300-500 yards would do it for me.

About how far out is that tree line?

Anyone in the U.S got these-or does someone here have one FS?

Price is ridiculous with a fast Google search. I can’t find any cheap.

Rey, should have the X6. He's price and shipping beats most

overseas vendors.And the shipping was faster than my local USPS..

I would love to have one, but the problem with X6 is the supplied current is too low for the capability of LED.

I have seen Rick’s X6 in action, and I have to admit it blew me away how good it throws. I really liked it.

Hey Dale, nice beam shot. I find it interesting on shots like this that show a slight separation in the beam, then gradually one tight beam. I am assuming that is the beam divergence that we hear about and why throwers need some distance to get their highest readings. I’ve seen that on many other thrower beamshots. I guess it could be an illusion too.
How many amps are these X6’s driven at? I think I’ve heard like 6amps or so?
