Yep, Matte Ano sounds good. The semi chalky types gives good grip & looks good too. I like it.

Matte all the way. That’s the major thing I don’t like about my C8F.

Looks like this light is going the same way as the Kronos K70.

I’m not so somber yet, it is a new type of light for Sofirn, and a relatively expensive one so worth doing it right which could take a while. Barry did ask us about the anodising the other day, I doubt that is just for show.

I hope you are both right,it just seemed strange that now they are talking about anodising,thought that would have been sorted long ago.

The ways of chinese flashlight manufacturers are mysterious!
But I’m not surprised that the type of anodising is decided late in the process,

Sofirn has not had a good matte anodizing as far as I know. They recently have this new one (technically the anodization company they use) so they might want to use it. Maybe they are trying a new anodizing company? Who knows.

I say let this thread hibernate and let Sofirn go at their own pace, we had 4 new lights come out on the 14th. I’m busy! Big Smile

Ok I’ll leave this thread alone,but I would have thought that letting the thread hibernate with no incoming chat would indicate to the manufacturer a drop in interest to the project.

Yeah, Emisar D18, Astrolux MF01S, Astrolux MF01 Mini, Lumintop EDC05C

Plus Imalent just announced their two monster lights, the MS18 and R90TS.

Plus the GT Micro is out, I just tested that.

Plus Cree just recently started shipping the 3v version of the XHP50.2. That’s making for awesome mods, like Q8’s doing 15k lumen, etc…

Plus I’m not really checking many new threads because I’m trying to reduce my time on BLF. So there might be new stuff I’m missing. Whew! Lol

I’m sure Sofirn will give us updates when the time comes. I’m curious what their new high drain 26650 is.

You’ve definitely spent a lot of time on BLF, answering pretty much everyone’s questions about pretty much everything. It really helps, and is appreciated. But you definitely don’t have to do that… it seems like it’s practically a full-time job. It’s okay to just enjoy the hobby, instead of making it jobby. Smile

Guys!
Sometimes I get an e-mail about promotions and new products in the Sofrin store on Ali. Today I received this:

Yes, they are getting closer on the SP70, but it should not go on sale this soon. I hope a sample light can be tested first. Maybe they will “presale” it? IDK.

Right now they are waiting for some anodized samples to come back of a flat or matte black finished SP70. They may go with this new finish. Have to wait and see.

Yeah, they might try to do a preorder during the Aliexpress anniversary. Nothing is confirmed, though. The light itself is still a ways from shipping.

It should also be available on their Amazon USA store.

I don’t know how I feel about a preorder. I guess most people don’t mind paying really early. I prefer paying closer to when the product is actually going to ship out. Maybe it won’t be such a long wait? I’ll try and find out.

Anyway, it’s a good sign. The SP70 is closer to release. Thumbs Up Beer

I doubt it, plus there is no one to run it. It will probably be like the Sofirn Q8.
