Have run a C8-2 (KDLitker), and Sofirn’s: C8T, C8A, and older version C8F (18650) with standard drivers (but larger springs replaced in a few for a tighter battery hold). Most did time over a 270 with zero issues.

Model C8-2 (KDLitker) is a great choice for sure. Got it 3 or 4 years ago, and it still works just like it should. By the way, can you say what do you think about these Lumen Bulb Flashlights models? It looks like model Fenix Flashlights FX-PD35TAC flashlight – is one of the best there, in comparison with others.

Funtastic, how is this flashlight coming along Cool

It’s in production, maybe 2 months away. It’ll be a 2021 release I’d say

Any updates?

Simon has a sample but there’s an issue with the reflector so have to wait

my two cents is that it should have little to no grip. A bumpy grip for me means it’s harder to wipe down and get clean. If I need any grip I slap some hockey tape on it which is easy to remove.

I have a couple samples and it performs incredibly well. The issue that needs to be corrected is very poor focus, the reflector needs lifting higher when using the Osram LEDs. Simon is waiting for some final measurements from me before ordering new thicker gaskets.

I haven’t tested the CULPM1 yet, but below are the range measurements I get using the CSLNM1

Red – 820m
Green – 1,674m

Body diameter ended up being 26mm instead of 27mm which I absolutely love since it’ll still fit most 25.4mm mounting brackets. I hope Simon gets into making lighter weight models because there’ll be many who’d prefer them. The L21A is better for heat dissipation, but felt quite bulky, this L21B is only 210g vs 354g. I just wish he’d get a little more creative with the naming as I’m sure many potential customers would be put off from the confusion. I mean there’s the C8+ and the 21700 version is called the M21A, how confusing is that

It’s really decent. This will give all hunting brands out there a real run for their money.

Is it available from Simon?

I mean, the prices in your store are a bit high compared to Simon

Prices are very high if you’re looking at them in usd, but it’s nzd Smile although I still need to make a living somehow

New Zealand customers only as exporting is problematic. I give lifetime upgrades and free labour on repairs after 1 yr warranty to make the prices worth it

The focus is bad without height adjustment of the reflector and so I’ve told Simon the thickness gasket of what’s needed.

Oh and btw, I don’t just resell as is, I install dual springs, align LED, tighten screws and retaining rings, and clean all contacts

Ah, thanks for the explanation, forgot that its NZ$ which is obvious different than US$.
No need to excuse, i understand that its part of your business and you have to make a living.

Was just hoping that BLF enthusiasts can buy it from Simon, since most of us are familiar with Convoy and modding.

Just flick Simon a message and ask for it Smile he has them ready, but just with the focus issue.
