most expensive c8?

I came across this trying to identify a flashlight last night and had to laugh..

 

barska FLX BA11630 Tactical Flaslight

obvious convoy c8 head and tailcap, they changed the battery tube and think it's worth $220 more than the XinTDs?! lol

Similar style to a C8, but it is a bit bigger. Takes 2 cells and has multiple emitters. Either way, it’s overpriced.

My Favorite Modded Lights: X6R, S8 , X2R , M6, SP03

Major Projects:  Illuminated Tailcap, TripleDown/TripleStack Driver

But it comes in a nice case with two CatchonFire batteries and a BurnYourHouseDown charger.

No wonder it’s so expensive it’s got strobe!

i am not surprised, barska makes crap rebranded products and tries to pass them off as good product.

That looks like it, not really close to being a C8 but the Barska is very over priced.

Yeah, that's just a really old WF-1500 with 5*XR-E emitters rated at 1200 lumens total.  Actually a decent thrower at the time but $250 is ridiculous for a $32 light.  ROFL!

That’s what I think, too.
5 LEDs and only claimed 1200 Lumens?

I remember those flashlights from DX.com 5 years ago.

THe other lights are overpriced too. Over 50$ for a 220 lumen one.. yeah.

lol! I noticed that on ebay too. When they run out of stock on something I think they keep one last one to sell for an outrageous price to some unsuspecting victim who does not know any better when waiting until their regular stock comes back in. I could easily see a rich government employee having to buy something and not caring about the price. They really laugh at us then! CHA! CHINGG!

I think that's a placeholder technique so they don't have to delete the page and re-create it when the items back in stock, while also keeping it active in the search engines' results.
