I've always wanted one of those and if it weren't for the colored LEDs around the outside I might consider it. Would be an easier sell if they were all white LEDs or maybe all green.

Also I have been eye-balling this multiple times, but always rejected as too costly..

Now I simply couldn't resist. A really nice addition to my collection. Smile

Thanks for the heads-up!

Damn you all,

My poor credit card.....

As others above, had this on my DX wish list since it was released, but could never justify the cost.

Still can't, but what the hell.

 

Edit - 'Congratulations! The deal you made on DX Offers has been successful. Minimum number of buyers has been met. We appreciate your purchase. And we will arrange the shipment within 5 working days. Please be patient with DX.'

Please be patient with DX? I guess we're all used to doing that.

 I want it, looks cool as hell. But i have a TK45, couple 504b, uf-h3 coming. Could somebody confirm my mind that this light is a great deal? Cool

Oh no...it has stepless adjustment, too, just like the UF-H3.  Damn it! Now it's appeal just overrode the colored LEDs. $38 is still a lot of money compared to some other lights I want to get that will be used more. This is really just a shelf queen but such a AWESOME looking shelf queen. I still have a few days to talk myself out of it.  Yell

Maybe you don't need to talk yourself out of this deal. Remember that DX offers are NOT unlimited. In fact if you browse older deals you can see that some of them were sold out after as little as 6 or 8 pieces (or something similar).

So just wait a couple of hours / days and others will decide on behalf of you. Smile

(Or then just go ahead and buy one while stocks last Big Smile After all, it looks AWESOME, as you said!)

Pretty good since a real Gatlight V3 is something north of $300.

It so ruins the look. Anyone had any experience modding one of these? If those 5mm are easily swapped/removed I may have to reconsider.

I'll probably try modding it with these when I receive mine (after writing a review that is :)).

Shouldn't be that difficult.. Let's see.

Can't wait for your review. Maybe a small diy for led swap?

BTW: The don't ruin the look, because they seem to be white/clear as long as they are not lit (see this photo). And you have to lit them separately, so it shouldn't be a problem.

Great idea! I just ordered a pack of those LEDS a couple minutes ago. I will carefully disassemble the torch to see if I can mod it and if I can I won't have to wait another month for the LEDs to come in to do it. Smile

What a shameful rip-off of a beautiful custom light and they screwed the design in the process. I wouldn't own one if they were giving them away. I think we need to draw the line somewhere when it comes to ripping off small run custom designs.

I Disagree. Cloning a custom light like this will never devalue the real thing among collectors. The clones give people the chance to own a light they never could afford or would never spend the money on in the first place. It doesn't effect the originals market but opens up to a whole different market that would never own the original. If anything it will make the public more aware of the original and make the real thing even more desirable and collectable.

Personally I'm still waiting for a clone of the Spy007 to become available.

theres a lazer too, with 12 "barrels" around it, but the host is down

 

@johnny 

thats a hot torch, that and a high quality lighter with same styling would make a great set

Oh my! I had no idea this light was popular among the budget folk. I always assumed it was thought of as gimmicky and awkward. When I saw this thread I realized I couldn't be further from the truth! Smile

Got the email from DX telling me it's shipped.  Too bad it's China post and not HK post.  It'll take a good 3 weeks to get here instead of 9 days.
