R5 flood to throw?

Is this the only flood to throw flashlight using a Cree R5?

Is a problem of optic, heatsink or what?

Do you think an X2000 body would be good for an upagrade with r5?

Only at a low current - the pill inside the X2000 only contacts the edges of the star - there is no thermal path.

 

The numbers from my light tests are always to be found here.
