Not really interested in splitting them or shipping them out of the U.K.
The X10vn is the thrower compared to the flood of the X3vn.
Both are fantastic lights all the same. Look the same but perform totally differently.

Still a lot of money. Personally I think the VN stuff is way over priced and I really don’t like the ultra BS hype he has to put in the title of every thread he has.

I’m not saying he isn’t talented, but that talent certainly extends to extracting huge money from people paying loads over the top. The other year he was selling a $13 (free shipping) Zuesray for $70… with literally no changes. And then people still paid extra for other bits.

Anyhow that aside… in terms of advertising your ones, maybe some pics of the actual things you are selling might help a little.

We are all entitled to our opinions but I do think posts such as yours are not really what sellers would like to see on a sales thread.
However I have some pics of the lights now so anyone interested I can email them and perhaps potential buyers can make up their own minds.

Agreed, and it’s against the rules here.

Carry on with your sale, good luck!

I’m curious, if you don’t mind, did they sell on BLF or somewhere else?

Glad you were able to sell your lights. Thumbs Up

I have 15 VN lights and have no complaints about quality. warranty and price. I negotiate w/ Vinh. One of MANY examples. The TN42 stock sells for $200. I got my TN42vn for $222. Thumbs Up

As far as CD’s comment. It is not only ignorant and hurtful to the seller, but a form of jealousy that seems to continue on here by several members.

I suspect he has never had one of Vinh’s lights as if he had he would know just how good they are.
I still have 4 of Vinh’s lights so just thinning the herd so to speak.
I doubt I would part with these as I use them quite a bit but the two I sold were not getting the use they deserved.
My favourite is a Sunwayman D10 with warm tint followed by a little Eagletac D25C which for its size has amazing throw.

Regardless of a person’s thoughts on vinh’s lights (we all have different opinions it seems), it’s not ok to poop on someone else’s sales thread. But let’s not stir the pot further gents, what’s done is done (8 months ago).

I do not look at it as stirring the pot. Stirring the pot would be continuous and multiple posts,,I made ONE[!]!!!

Are we not entitled to respond to anothers inappropriate comment?

Time to hit the trail,,,,,,,,,,OSTS TN31mb and U21vn,,,,,,hmmmm Michael and Vinh,,,,,Two very talented modders that have something in common with BLF!

Wolf I wasn’t trying to sound condescending for the one post you made, just trying to avoid continuous posts in case others felt the need to join in.

It’s a known problem, and for all we know CD may have decided not to make more posts of that type anymore. An argument about it doesn’t help anything.

Congrats on the sale to the OP
