Could we please stop posting who like the flashlight or ordered it etc. This should be a threat about the new products and a few persons subscribe for this. If you like to discuss it, please open a new thread.

I missed the infinitely dimming part, now I have to get one too. I’ve got to stop reading this forum so often.

This new L2 from Solarstorm will be showing up on fasttech within the next 24 hours.

http://blackshadow.en.alibaba.com/product/1766276427-219185207/2014_newe...

The head is going to be very large and it uses the exact same warrior battery tube. All they had to do was increase the warrior to about 2800-3000 lumen. And I don’t know what their obsession is with silver anodizing.

“We want MT-G2 Warrior”, we want…, come on repeat with me, “We want MT-G2 Warrior” :bigsmile:

BTW. I like they widened the head but I dont like they added 2 more emitters increase in overall light output will be hard to notice while it will heat up significantly faster, even warrior heats up fast as is, with 2 more emitters will be cooking in minutes. Not to mention sucking the juice from batteries like there’s no carburetor and of course, less throw <-> more flood …

That body with MT-G2 for under 40$ = perfect combination Silly

Authentic Panasonic NCR18650BD 3.7V 3200mAh Rechargeable Li-Ion Batteries (2-Pack) 10A continuous discharge - more mAh as the 18650PD. Here are some discharge charts.  Price per pair (don't forget coupon code BLF to save 5% more): $18,11. My link - non aff-link


UniqueFire HD-015 4*Cree XM-L2 T6 (but also cool white 7500-8300K. The beam shot shows a neutral white beam and you can see the corrcet biklight) 3-Mode (but in the data sheet is written 4 modes hi, mid, low, sos)  2000LM  LED Bike Light. Incl.

My last battery order from Fast Tech never made it. It left Malaysia on 2/2/2014 and that's the last anyone has seen of it??

I tried to file a PP dispute but alas, I was a day or two too late.  Cry

Fasttech gave me store credit for items that didn’t arrive. I was also past the PP dispute deadline. They seem pretty upright about it.

I am sorry that the post office usually give us the feedback within 2 months after we made a claim.

As you know we have no control of this after the package is shipped out, all we can do is waiting for the news from the post office.

Please trust us, we definitely will refund you the money or resend the package to you after we confirm that the package is lost.

I will call the day: New knives day Smile

Navy K631 - plain blade without serration! Stainless Steel Folding Knife w/ Carrying Pouch blade length 85mm, back lock. $ 17,53 My link - non aff-link


NAVY K510 Stainless Steel Folding Knife blade length 86mm, liner lock. $10,88 My link - non aff-link

 

Navy K627 and K627C - the handle is a little bit different and the price ($1). The C has a little carbon fibre inlay.

NAVY K627C Stainless Steel Folding Tactical Knife blade length 93mm, the K627 should have a blade length of 100mm, but other sides wrote that both have the same. I think tghi is corrcet and the description of fasttech is wrong with the different balde lengths.

Stainless Steel Folding Tactical Knife, back lcok, nice quality. I bought two K627 a longer time ago for a mate and he like both very much. $ 18,15 (K627) My link - non aff-link  $19,06 (K627C) My link - non aff-link

There are also some more Navy like the K507 is back, the K502 and the K617 are also available.


Sanrenmu GA-T11 Stainless Steel Folding Knife w bottle opener function / 57mm blade. $10,12 My link - non aff-link

Sanrenmu 717 Stainless Steel Folding Knife blade length 71mm - not big, but it looks for me elegant. $9,20. My link , non aff-link


  


 And Fasttech has now some Inron knives.

INRON NY803 Stainless Steel Folding Knife 100mm blade with orange, tan or black handle.It looks similar to Rick Hindereres knives, but the quality is a big difference. Of course a knife of Mr. Hinderer cost 15-20 times of the Inron.
At the moment I have only the black handle version, which is rougher as the orange and tan version, which have a smoother surface of the handle.
Price for each $14,66. My link - non aff-link.


INRON NY801 Stainless Steel Folding Knife 93mm blade. $14,66. My link - non aff-link.

 

  801

I don't post the Ganzo Multitools G103 and G105, because they are small and the quality isn't wow. The G3xx series is much better (and more expensive, and the G202 is ok.

Light up the darkness.

Good to see them stocking Inron at last. I’ve yet to try one but it won’t be long at those prices. maybe next month, I’ve had a bit of a knife buying frenzy this month but couldn’t resist the Sanrenmu B4-762 for about £ 7.60 !!
FastTech continue to increase, or should that be rotate, their knife stock because as models sell out or are discontinued they bring more in. They are excellent on prices as well.
23 new ones today but I’d recommend steering clear of the SR brand, there might be the odd good one but mostly they produce absolute rubbish copies of good knives, the Kershaw E.T. and the Spyderco Poliwog being two of them. The Kershaw E.T. came with it’s own training video, they were a bit unforgiving to stray fingers, SR gives you no warning but their copies are truly awful. I know I bought two of them!

Well that was quick, 2 Ganzo G620s ordered, the G1 with green scales and black blade and the Y2 with tan scales and printed on “Damascus” pattern.
I’ll let you know how they flip in about a month. :bigsmile:

I think 99,9% are Fasttech links, but I will alos post now, two of Banggood, because you can get only the CW version from Fasttech and Banggood offers a NW, too.
They are availabale as Solarstorm and now as Fandyfire (some 2 cent less) - maybe someone like the Fandyfire letters more. The prices are incl. the 5% BLF coupon.

FandyFire SC01  1*AA(14500) $14,41,  FandyFire SC02  1*18650 $15,18, FandyFire SC03  1*CR123A (16340) $14,38.   Non aff-link.


All have CW LEDs, but Banggood offers NW versions and at the moment as a promotion (for a limited time) for a better price Smile
You can choose CW and NW. 
I bought one of the SC02 with NW.

SC01, 1*AA(14500)    coupon:bgf164    $14.19

SC02, 1*18650   coupon:bgf170    $14.9

SC03 1*CR123A (16340) coupon:bgf171   $14.19

 

Fasttech listed also a new headlight with two small red LEDs, and the main LED is a XP-E Q5, works with 3x AAA (edit). SVITAC ST-H1 1*Cree XP-E Q5 + 2*Red LED 120LM LED Headlamp, 7 modes if you count red and white together ( White: Hi > Mid > Lo > SOS,   Red: Hi > Lo > Strobe). Available in black and white. Price $17,92 (with BLF $17,02). My link - non aff-link
