If so and they want our input I think a traditional “coleman green” would be a good option. To me the ‘candy colors’ make the lantern look ‘toy-ish’ and cheap. It seems that is what some want but if those are the only options, I will probably choose black. JMO

My thoughts exactly!! You read my mind. I think the colors definitely need to be darker. Maybe a poll on this would be good.

Optional colors are nice but the downside is finish durability. Only black can be high voltage hard coat anodized. Does it matter? Depends on the person you talk to. I like colors and can live with a less bullet proof finish but some may not be willing to. I’m not even sure Sofirn does black using high voltage hard coat anodizing so it could be a moot point.

Why does information like this flow from an Austrian guy in China with his pet kangaroo instead of from the people who are actually involved in the LT1 project?

Personally, I think the green is too bright, and I’m not a huge fan of the gold either. Darker more subtle colors would be better IMO.

Agreed. I would buy all mine in black if the green and gold in the pic are the color choices.

These colors need top be more intense or more rich. The pics of the blaze orange anodized parts posted a few pages back were right on and I love the green flashlight in the middle of the pic just under the bright pink tube coming from the top.

Yeah the colors should be much darker imo. The current state they’re in looks toyish.

If that green will be available, I will most definitely order my next one in it.

Sofirn must be using the same anodization plant as Astrolux. The christmas green would match Astrolux s43 and MF01s.

I dunno, maybe he has some inside info and met with people actually involved in the project? People post updates from others posting on FB to keep us informed?

_And why does a guy from US of A apparently think Austria is the country with kangaroos? _

In the event you’re looking to add a bit different color to the poll, DBSAR, I’d like suggest something in the realm of Flat Dark Earth. IMO, it kicks sand/gold’s butt.
Do you have any sample pic of that color?

Here’s a Google Image search. Seems like it’s a term that’s mainly used for describing weapons.

With the recent adds we’re at 2,928. Sofirn has stated that everyone up to and including 3,000 will get the group price so there are still 72 slots available on the interest list. After reaching 3,000 I will stop adding to the list unless Sofirn gives me the go-ahead to do so.

Get your adds in while you still can LOL

That “Austrian guy” is Martin. Martin is involved with many flashlight manufacturers and projects. He works hard to get people deals on lights. While he may not be involved with this project, it shouldn’t be too hard to understand why he may have knowledge on a product from a manufacturer that he deals with. I mean look at it, he works with them enough to get invited to their headquarters in China.

One more for me please for a total of 3. Thanks to everyone involved! My first one has been ordered thru amazon but not yet shipped.

On color I vote for coleman green, like the old gas lanterns.

It’s a joke. Perhaps if you actually spent some time on the forum and ever looked at one of his posts here you’d get it.
