I am going to be running this group buy side by side on another forum also, to double the chances of getting to the group buy price.

 

 

 

For now, please post interest here, such as "I will be interested in 1 item". I will start a list in the next post listing the members involved, and the items claimed so far.

Hmmm. Single XM-L2 with a 76.2mm head. Could be quite the thrower.

Thanks FP for the link. Looks like a good thrower. Is it worth ~ $100 retail? What’s she normally cost?

Edit: you guys talk/type too fast…lol.

No beam shots, but I’m very impressed with the light. In fact, even my wife was impressed when we took it for a walk with the dogs one night. A few profanities were uttered at the sheer throw of the thing. Smile It’s really well built. Very useful for spotting badgers (the first live one I’ve ever seen). The dogs were impressed too. Silly

I paid $90 shipped if I recall, and it comes with a Thrunite aluminium case, which is a waste, imho, as it also has an OK holster. I had very good communications with Supbeam (I bought it direct).

I’m puzzled by the lumens though – looks like a simple 20% increase in the XM-L version – calculated, not measured, I reckon.

yeah it probably is just calculated. I will find out what bin LED it is.

 

a couple members last week recommended i try for this light for the next one. they had quoted something like $96 shipped for 50 pieces. so i said thanks but no thanks basically.

 

they contacted me last night and wanted to do something, this was the best i could work out. i was shooting for a bit less, but they would not budge from this price

I used to have the original Supbeam K40 when it came out. It is a very nice light. Very well-built, high-quality manufacturing. It has the same UI with the TN30/31s, which is a very user-friendly feature, but it has none of the reported flickering concerns. From its battery-carrier to the rotary magnetic ring, it rocks. And it has a very low mode (.6 lumen) for those who prefer it.
Its factory lux rating of 95,600cd is IMO even lower than it can actually throw. Recommended.
