BLF Ti picture gallery (don`t watch if you are not interested) hide your wallet, and cover your keyboard before its too late!

This is the proto-type of Rey`s first BLF Ti light.

My first impression in hand was very positive.
Although I had seen all the pictures in WWEFANS threads, in person it looks better!

Originally I wasn`t very impressed with the corn style knurling in the pictures, but having it in hand, I must say I really like it.

Anyway.. here are the pictures

ENJOY!

18350 style

with the heavy and thick pill on the side. (He should have special orders for these, because they are very heavy and good for triples, also in the Convoy S2+

and with extension.

and compared to the Convoy S2

The pill is at least 3 or 4 mm thick.. Should dissipate heat rather quicly

The left is the Rey one, and the right is the Convoy

I screwed the pill/reflector etc from the Convoy right into the Rey BLF Ti light.

The bezel ring has still some machine marks as can be seen in the next picture

The trit slots are very close to the edge, but still doable!

the clicky side.. the copper ring (around the switch) should be screwed down further, and I don`t really understand the way this switch should work, but there are some parts missing.  It should be the same as the trustfire f20????? please correct me if Im wrong Rey

One thing I noticed is that the knurling on the extension is of difference size.. although minimal.
The tail end has square(ish) knurling, while the extension has rectangular.
Keep in mind this is the proto type, and not the final product.  Also the knurling is done a little different on the tail end than on the extension.

The extension and the tail-part aren`t perfectly matched in length (alignment, see picture below), a little off center, when screwed down.

threads:

nothing to complain. The ring is thick, and will fit snug.

and a few more pics to drool

He said Convoy S Series. I do hope the production light is the same.

It looks great. I like how it is unique. I can see the machining issues you pointed out. No biggie, especially for the price! Man what a deal.

It looks like Lukes Light Saber! lol

Thanks for the pics.

@ChibiM.  Thanks for the review and nice pictures.  Please also post it if you find more further problems.

 

1.bezel ring has still some machine marks.

--Will not happen in massive production. Even if it happens, I will not ship it.

 

2.As per the discussion thread, pill is copper, but retainer might be brass.

 

3.The switch you get should look very strange, for me, too. It is same as TrustFire F22.

The prototype inner size is wrong,too big,so we made a copper ring to make them fit.You will not see it in the final.

 

4.The middle part knurling is deeper, just a try, it feels better than the less knurling-ed of tail part.

5.Not in alignment perfectly.

--Could it be the O-ring?   We machined the middle and tail when they're screwed in one piece.

But after adding the O-ring, it goes wrong a little? 

If so, we have to do the machining with an O-ring in them?

Wow.
Nice
I did not realise it was that size, I though it was larger.
I like that size, it might make a good EDC instead of my custom S3. Party

Ok, it’s been bugging me some, but why oh why did ChibiM get his first? {scratching head} I have better photo equipment, would absolutely promise not to throw it out the window of a moving car, and would love it and cherish it and call it my very own forever and ever.

So why HIM?! Silly

JK, seriously, nice pics dude and really really looking forward to getting mine. Trits all sitting here glowing like there was no tomorrow, anxiously awaiting the arrival of their new home.

Good one!

So, remind me… what does Epson have to do with this?

Edit: And isn’t it about time to clean your sensor?

Might want to get your camera cleaned to get rid of the dust spots and lint. Wink

Gotcha Dale, just joking around. Will have to take a look, could be the Nikon close up filter I used as well.

I was yanking your chain too. But there really are some specks in your image that you could probably get rid of. Not likely to be on the close-up lens as that would be far enough away from the sensor (film plane) to be difficult to show up.

Let’s face it, excellent images have been taken for over a hundred years, equipment matters, but at the end of the day it’s how it’s used to the best of it’s abilities that matters. Wink

Unless, off course, one chooses a [cough] Nicon

Copper Hill Images, they make a little kit with the right fluid and a pack of lint free pads, with a nice set of instructions that includes pictures, makes it easy to do something most people won’t even attempt. Wink

(Totally bizarre that I actually remembered that slightly odd name right when I needed to, very unusual for me.)
