I like both ideas. A single SBT90.2 and a triple.

I've passed on the FW21 Pro because of the tail switch, so very much interested in this side switch version! It's somewhat along the lines of the Amutorch X9, but the X9 has to be modded of course to get Anduril in it, and change out the LED's to preference.

Yes, the sideswitch version is very interesting ! But no SBT90 LED, thats to much for this small torch and it would be only a “Blitzlicht”…
A single XHP50B NW or XHP35 Hi could be a great combination with a nice beamprofile…

I love it!!

Suggestion: Add full knurling to the body tube. Unlike with the tailcap switch FW3A’s cigar grip, the most natural position to hold a side-switch light is a handshake grip with your palm around the body tube and thumb on the button.

  • With the cigar grip, you don’t necessarily need knurling on the body tube since the goal is for the fingers to slip up to the raised tailcap with the thumb on the tailswitch.
  • However with a handshake grip, the light will feel a lot more secure in the hand with knurling on the body tube.

Lack of knurling on the body tube was one of the major criticisms with the Emisar D4 that was fixed in the D4V2. It would be best not to make that mistake with this new light.

I would really like a side switch FW21 Pro version in silver to gray, xpl hi or similar. I also like the smoothness of standard version through. Bought 3 Convoy S2+ butt button lights, that is enough Flat Stare

Funny, yesterday I was thinking that I really should get some FW-series light and this side switch model could be the one. Illuminated side switch is probably coming without saying.
Green body color would be nice even though their current line of colors is pretty good already.

XHP35 Hi’s are already old stuff now that those new XHP35.2 Hi’s are coming later this year probably. Maybe this light could be the first one to use those though.

Well the XHP35.2 domed ones are same 12V, same rated Vf, same rated amps, so nothing new or better (http://budgetlightforum.com/node/61437). If the HI version was 3V and could take very high amps, then it becomes interesting. Something like a SBT90.2 but in a reasonable size package at a reasonable cost.

News on the XHP35.2 HI version in the EOL doc from CREE: https://www.cree.com/led-components/media/documents/CREE-PCN-1058.pdf. Haven't found or seen a spec yet on it though, but if it's like the HD, nothing new, might even be worse.

I too like the idea of a side switch for a light of this size. Keep us posted with the led ideas please!

Were they thinking of a triple XHP50.2 initially?
Is the SB90.2 made for more of a thrower?

I’d love to know more about the idea behind each design. I’m not up on all the new emitters.

As the happy owner of the XHP50.2 in 18650 I see the SB90.2 in 21700 as the logical step up. In fact a big WHY NOT? A question to you Martin or any of our experts. How many lumens do you expert from this set-up?

I would buy either type of fw21 pro if it came with high CRI, neutral white emitters. I don’t need 10,000 lumens, I’d just hope the extra mass will permit a higher sustainable level.

Did anyone actually used a FW21 Pro?

10k lumen in a palm size light off a single cell seems like a stretch or a recipe for a massive extinction event. Something’s gota go wrong! Is there any review?

I already have a compact triple XHP50.2 3V light, modded Amutorch X9, smaller than this light. 10K? No big deal - mine hit 11K.

Would really like if it had the option to change the clip for a lanyard holder like on the Noctigon KR4.

Agreed, a clip for a head that flairs out that much is hard to really use.

Thanks! Ordered a green SST-40 5000K with SS bezel, slo shipping...

It's roughly a C8 size light so should be C8 in performance. Wonder how the reflector compares in exact head diameter and depth.

Thank you, ordered the Sofirn SP40 and BLF LT1 using your codes.

I had to place each order separately to get both codes to work.

Enjoy your family and vacation.  Don't forget to bring a flashlight. smile

How many flashlights does a "real man" need?

None, real men are not afraid of the dark.
