This is lens on Surplus Shed, I was curious if it was something that might be used in flashlights or builds.

“slightly aspheric” is not something you want in a flashlight lens.
It should be perfectly aspheric.

You also need PCX not DCX.

Thumbs Up Still haven’t found any better affordable lenses than Optolife, if you need cheaper then fasttech or dx are your best bet.
