I would be interested in the FW4A if it were 21700.

Edit: I cannot see the photos posted by M4D M4X.

But why not they put the button on side of the head? Using it as a headlamp is much comfortable that way.

I also can’t understand why only Armytek and Skilhunt were able to compute how headlamps are mounted on a head and how average person hands are built Big Smile

Why Haven’t they changed the tail switch? You look at it funny and it will turn on. Their is no way you can edc it without it turning it on making it completely useless.

Very interested in headlamp… if an 18350 tube is an option.

(18350 in a triple—what’s the point you ask? Answer: mainly for regular use as low output with rare turbo bursts. Low weight means less bouncing with these light type right. But then there’s the option to then upgrade to 18650s in reserve if sustained high-output is needed. My use case is backpacking in dark places)

I would be interested in an FW421A for sure. The FW4A doesn’t interest me though. The trit slotted tailcap is a great idea.

Anyone else hoping they do an aux board like the D4v2 in the FW4A/FW421? Think it’s a good idea?

I have a feeling the FW4A will lose every advantage the FW3A has over the D4 other than tail-eswitch. The FW3A tried to do something different than the D4; it tried to be a useful EDC. To do this, it traded the extra heatsinking abilities and fourth LED from the D4 in favor of lightness and compactness. The FW4A will only gain a tiny bit of efficiency, but you’re never going to notice it. If the proposal was to beef up the head significantly it might be more interesting, but as it is the FW3A already can’t handle the heat it’s capable of.
