I did PM Ric 24 hours ago with a couple of questions. As yet I have not heard back. Hopefully we will hear from him today.

I have not paid for AR lens.

Light have not been shipped yet. I will start paypal claim if light have not showed up within 45 days. (Sorry, but I have little trust in CNQ)

Instead of doing manual payment, and PM. Cant Ric just list the AR coated lenses on his webpage and then we place a new order for that? Seems easier to me.

Just ship the lights..

I cant answer your question as to when these lights will be shipped. Ric has told me that there is still a hold up again with the AR lenses. I have asked the question to clarify when both lots of lights, with and without AR lenses will ship. I have no doubt that they all will be shipped but its the usual lack of information for which I take the blame and apologize that leads to this frustration.

Edit. To date there are 43 sold according to the numbers on the website.

The delay is unfortunate. It would be nice to be informed of such delays, but it isn't your fault. I have no doubt that Ric will ship the orders when possible, but I'd hate to have to file a PP claim if it drags out for too long (45 days).

Well, I’m going to get all ‘Zen’ on you and say that (a) I’m not stuck in the dark, (b) I already have a lot of flashlights, © these are a real bargain, so (d) I’ll just be patient and be pleasantly surprised when one day my flashlight shows up in the mail. Wink It cost about as much as it would to take my wife out to a modest lunch.

Anxiety-wise, I’d much rather be a buyer than a seller. I already know what sellers go through dealing with their suppliers and being caught in the middle. I’m not going to get bent out of shape over a $35 flashlight (that I don’t need in the first place) that takes a bit longer to come than I’d like. I figure if $35 is a hardship to me, I wouldn’t be blowing it on another flashlight in the first place.

As an added plus, being so forgetful, when it shows up I’ll have forgotten I ordered it, it’ll be like a fall visit from Santa or something. lol

I have a lot of patience, but… When will they be shipped?

I hadn’t realized until looking at Tom’s breakdown that the Yezl Y3 is like the modern remake of an HD2010. Seems to be the accumulated improvements of modders everywhere making the old favorite thrower a better light. So this gets more interesting all the time. Smile

Initially, I had thought to put an MT-G2 in it, which is why I got the extension tube for 2 cells. Might still do that, undecided at this point, but I’m seeing there may very well be other options for this light. An opposite way of thinking might be to utilize the XP-G2 S2 2B for a tight beam with great throw characteristics. I’m pretty sure that would net a pencil beam, with probably 350-400Kcd fairly easily.

On the other hand, I’m starting to think about slicing the dome and trimming the peripheral phosphor on the new MT-G2, in an effort to get a more traditional beam pattern with a hot spot and a mix of throw and spill in a high output type of light. And since I’ve only got 9 MT-G2 lights, this might be the way to go. Smile

Or it could be an incredibly massive host for a laser if I could get Ryan to build me one. But he’s coming here soon so that probably won’t happen, unless he has some project requirements in college to fulfill. Smile

Need to procure the new MT-G2, probably another S2 2B, and make sure my 5200mAh cells are charged. Might be some serious modding in a 2 day weekend extravaganza trying all of the above to see what works best in this light once it gets here. lol

Man, I’ve got too much time on my hands…. it’s ticking away with my sanity…

Do you actually WANT a reply to the post above? LOL

Well, I was wondering if anyone would recognize the plug on the old Styx song…

My sanity is pretty well known around here, or the fact that it’s mostly gone. Wink (I turn 52 in a few days, my daughter turns 19 the day after, and my son turns 7 10 days after that. Not only is my hair greying, it’s also falling OUT!)

The HD2010 does give the MTG-2 a nice hotspot without being all flood. Hopefully this being a bigger reflector that this may improve again, hope that makes sense.
