Hey Krono, with Bugsy’s A6 and your D80 fast approaching production, soon these will be all we have to look forward to! What will we do with ourselves?!

When you get a second spare, please would you be so kind as to update the list with these approved positions swaps. All done and transposed, just need copy/paste from below into your list…

Thank you very much, but if you want to complete the action, please delete me from position 30 in the first list and 84 in the second.

Ciao

Ah, and there goes the list! lol

Dodo, you’ll need to get someone to speak up for your previous slot in the list to do that, otherwise everyone after you get’s bumped one if you pull your number 30 or number 84. So, arrange it with someone behind you or the list get’s discombobulated. Wink

Edit: I will help you with the Aluminum list. Krono, please slot me into the number 84 position in Dodo’s place so he can have the number 99 spot. I do not have a previous entry into this Alum list, so there should be no confusion here and the number 84 for this one is as good as any as far as I’m concerned. Wink (No preference as to tint, whatever is still available.)

Now you just need someone to take your number 30 spot in the SS/Cu list…..

All list swaps have been made (thanks ahirshy!), and even DB’s new handle changed as well. Although, personally, I like Bugs’ handle for DB…Dr. FrankenDale…haha…that’s a goodun! OK…I’m easily amused…

Nevertheless, it has taken me awhile to get to the swap list. It is probably apparent that I have been somewhat apprehensive in doing it. Don’t get me wrong, I TOTALLY appreciate ahirshy keeping up with it! I just don’t want to give the false impression that certain S/Ns would be guaranteed to go to certain folks. While it may be possible, it it is not probable.

Until you put one of these things together you can not possibly imagine all the pitfalls, mis-communication and silliness (in a good way) that goes on behind the scenes. Adding some sort of S/N guarantee only complicates the GB. I hope everyone understands.

Blessings,
kronos

OK so if you are doing it that way, put #42. Nisse Al NW (wants #100) into #100 and put me for an additional Al set but NW at #42, and keep me at #52 for WW.

As I understand it though, the set of SS and Cu lights is being frantically worked on for samples as we speak. They got off to a very quick start, but made the sizes in the wrong materials initially or something like that. lol

I do believe it’s been noted that translations from Engrish to Chinese have been sorely tested with these group buys!

Good work, on both sides of the big rock! Wink

NW in both sets.

Please read the OP where it says…

“I just don’t want to give the false impression that certain S/Ns would be guaranteed to go to certain folks. While it may be possible, it it is not probable.”

You still want me to add you to the list?

@Krono,

For the NW tint, do you think that we will be able to get 3D, like with the A6 GB?

I really don’t care for 3C, to be kind…

Thanks!

Tint choices are some of the decisions the design GB team will determining as we go along.

I know B42 loves him sum 3C! Silly

Who else prefers 3D to 3C?

Ha! Well I have to admit, 3C does a great job if you are out in the wilderness and hungry, turn on your light: instant pea soup!!!

I like most anything that has an A or a D. – B and C are both too yellow/green to me.

I have the Red Convoy S2+ in 4C, and though I love the Convoy, the tint is a bit too yellow to suit me.

I really like 3D.

Thanks, and to each their own:-)

In my opinion the best neutral tints are 3D, 4A, 4D and 5A2. Any of these will do but 5A2 is the best! Smile

[edit] Basically the tints in that range but below the BBL

Aloha, Uli

4C is great, 3D, 4A, 4D and 5A2 are all good too (prefer 4D since I don’t have one and A6 is going to be 3D). Anything other than 3C really is my preference if we can get it, its been done to death.

Please add my name to the group buy for the BLF X6-SE v2.

1) Aluminum (Al)
2) Tint – NW
3) Quantity – 1 set

Thanks!

I prefer working flashlights, but if that is not possible, PM me, and I will engage you in a lengthy discussion about serial number. Gotta have one or the other.
