Looks nice, 3800 lumens.
I would like a thrower, convoy l6 and thirfire s70 have covered succesfully the xhp70 budget gap.

Apparently it has been for sale since november last year on AliExpress :

I’ve never seen the X9 on their aliexpress page until today. The URL is the Eagle Eye X5, so those items sold in Nov 2016 might be from the X5.

It looks nice but the head is only 62mm compared to the L6 at 75mm…so I’d put my money on the L6 instead.

Look nice. And it is 350 grams only.
Eagle Eye has little bit better quality than Convoy.

It’s very clean looking in all of the pictures…looks easy to mod.

True, I noticed it as well. UI is better too. The only model I like is X6. If they could make C8 size it would be perfect for me, I think. X7 pointless, X9 not for me. So still waiting for X8.

Armytek Predator Pro V3 XHP35HI, Lumintop FW21 X9L, Eagle Eye X6R XPL-HI, Convoy C8+ XPL-HI, M21A, M21C, Skilhunt H03, H03RC, Manker E02 Nichia 219C, Singfire SF-348 XP-E R3, and various no-name ...

I wonder how well it handles heat, as at 360 grams it is very light being 230 grams lighter than an S70s & 190 grams lighter than an L6 both of which have similar outputs so it has a lot less mass ?

In a heart beat! Thumbs Up I suggested this (2-26650 XHP70) to EE through and e-mail I sent them, wayyyy back, that and a single 26650 3v X6, but it fell on deaf ears! And put a full round tube on the 18650-X6 for crying out loud! Big Smile

Yes, it says stepdown after 3 minutes on turbo.

Put money on the L6 to do what? Throw farther? That sounds about right. This light might have a bigger hotspot due to the smaller reflector, which could be a good thing.

Yep! I would also have liked it to be the big brother to X6. But it isn’t, and I don’t like the look of this one. Facepalm
