For the thrower connoisseurs,

Is the Catapult V6 still one of the best in class for a single cell thrower?
Any new lights in 2019 that are worth considering?

Mostly interested in constant current / regulated 18650 or 26650 size.
Any recommendations?

I’d say one of the best single cell throwers is the Acebeam T27. It throws more than 900 constant meters for 1.5h

Thanks for your feedback.

The Acebeam T27 seems to be the most powerful one I can find, and the price tag goes along with it too Silly

How do you think the Catapult V6 compares to the Astrolux FT02?
What I am impressed with the FT02 is that they managed to do a Ramping UI with a regulated Boost driver. Never seen that before!

Thrunite updated their Catapult V6 without changing the name.

Original V6:
XHP35 Hi
1700 lumens
140kcd

New V6:
SST70
2800 Lumens
120kcd

They went for more lumens, and decreased throw in an upgrade of a thrower…
They went from offering Neutral White, to Cool White only (if I am not mistaken, SST70 only offered in 6500K, 65 CRI)
They went from offering a thrower that wouldn’t overheat quickly at the highest setting, to one that promises more lumens but ends up providing significantly less throw when it steps down….

Most likely a supply issue.

Well they didn’t change it without reason neither Cree discontinued production on the XHP35 Hi.
