Anyone have photos of Skilhunt H03/04 TIR and OP to see the difference?

Hi, do anyone have both of these optics and can post photos to see the difference? I know OP is more throwy and TIR is more floody but I would like how does it looks comparing at the same place.

Older/different versions but the form factor is similar and they share the same emitter, just with different color temps.

TIR:

Reflector:

XM-L2 and the (IMO MUCH better) LH351D are large, floody emitters compared to most 3535 so even the reflector variants are pretty floody.

Thanks for reply. What site is it?

In your opinion which is better allrounder-TIR or OP? From this photos TIR looks better for headlamp, for more throw I could use my IF25A but i’m still not sure Big Smile

The TIR is definitely better for all around use closer than 15ft or so. If you really want to have one headlamp and have the option of more throw you could get the reflector version and put DC fix on the lens which really broadens the beam.

Well… you CAN put a different degree TIR to narrow or widen the beam, they’re cheap and it’s an easy thing to do.

You mean to unscrew this plastic and screw another or other method?

Apparently these TIRs fit the H03.

Is it more difficult to change than in Convoy S2+ :D?

Don’t have an S2+ but I changed TIR’s on my Skilhunts few times and it’s takes a minute.
