BlueSword…
Ok, I want max punch/throw.. M1 or M2…? and request an SST-20?

I appreciate your guidance


Definitely the M1. It has a wider head and bigger reflector, so the spot is tighter. The M2 is more on the floody side.

M1, SST-20 then?

Yep… the M1 is one of my all time favorite lights!! I prefer it hands down to the M2. To me the M1 looks better too. Thumbs Up

Love the M1 too, it looks and feels pretty amazing. Still plan on getting an M2 with the 5700K Nichia. Then I’ll see if I agree with you completely Wink

I’d say so. It won’t exactly match a C8, but still should be pretty throwy.

I asked Simon for the sst-20, 5000k
He only has 4000k, but he responded like this:

If you just need narrow beam. You can choose cree xpl hi U6-3A

XPL HI, narrow beam, but ultimately the sst-20 will out throw it….?

Buy osram white flat and gaskets from Hank (intl-outdoor), M2 host and 3000mA driver from Simon and stack some more 7135 chips. This will outthrow every other M2 mod :D.

Do you have the ability to solder?

Sorry if I did not remember about the fact that Simon only sells 95CRI LEDs.

I would just get the 5000k SST-20 on 20mm PCB from Intl Outdoor:
