the 18350 tube is a option to the main light!

Seems you need to buy a 18650 light anyway Sad

correct 

the short tube is ONLY the tube - not a complete light. 

 

if you have a colored 18650 already you can just buy a short tube only

 

but keep in mind the color could be different a bit

Do you need a 100 of each colour for it to be available. Or is it just min 100 in total, but all colours available?

Also, do these switch on in your pocket?

Thats a shame. I’d be up for a green but only 5 on the list, so that ain’t going to happen.

Or maybe a tan, but only 12 of those so far. So I’d guess unlikely.

Purple sounds great, but it looks very pinky purple in the pictures. Sad

Maybe you mean the same thing as me. The OP says:

M4D M4X wrote:

From that I understand that the TK edition will be made if more than 100 orders for it are received.
Same goes for every other color: minimum 100 items per color.

Milling etc. is the same for every version. But each color demands a special setup/bath.
I’m not sure about the short tubes. They can be dipped into the same bath as the 18650’s.

You are a flashaholic if you are forced to come out of the closet, to make room for more flashlights.

It’s a pity, because at the moment only purple (without the short tube) has a chance. People have probably bought too many flashlights of this series.
Maybe if someone post this post on r/flashlights, more colors and short tubes would have a chance to be realized.

Well I’ve put myself down for a green. Think that makes 6 in total, so almost certainly no chance.

Too pricey for a colour I don’t really want though. Not knocking the price, but I’m sure you know what I mean.

I feel they could (and maybe should) make the raw version even if it doesn’t make 100. It’ll be less work than anodising, and it’s what the light was supposed to be from the beginning

+100

Take an extra 100 and skip the ano baths. Done.

Green is still available at AE with Cree 5000k & 6500k leds. Gray with every option. Also blue one with almost every led choice.

Green is also in BG and some other colors too. If you want them, get them. Wink

I’m curious . Do you transform the look of it ? Is a coat of protectaclear a possible evolution ?

Just my opinion. I feel purple, black and raw should be made regardless. I know this isn’t worth anything, but I feel these are colors with a need and want by the community snd will sell over time

Sad to see not one of the colors reach 100.. really would at least like a raw and black, and even a purple if I can’t get the blue. Anyway, hopefully some kind of exception can be made or some interest comes up.

I’ll just note- I recently ordered (received last week) a fw3brass from Neal and it’s functionally flawless.. I know I’ve seen some members on other threads questioning the fw3a functional reliability. I have never had one with an issue and I’ve owned 5. So I hope that isn’t holding some newer people back from signing up.

That’s what Im thinking, most must already have what they want. I unfortunately wasn’t as into the fw3a in the beginning and when I finally was, the colors were gone. Especially raw and black…
