It’s ugly but won’t stop me from buying. No pocket clip would probably make me reconsider.

Definitely would prefer a deep carry clip… The cig grip seems gimmicky as hell

This [with plastic cigar grip] will be the official version of FWAA.


Do consider our group buy if you want SS pocket clip instead!



I think I misread this. Maybe others did too. Freeme, can you confirm that group buy version does include the pocket clip?

My interest will be in the version with SS clip, even if it is not “perfect”.

About the etching: it sucks! Honestly! Flat Stare

I’m legitimately trying to come up with a justification for buying this but I can’t figure it out for myself. I have smaller AA/14500 lights. I’ve built a AA hotrod and I didn’t really care for it. I really don’t trust that miniature triple optic, nor do I have great faith in Lumintop’s driver re-work. The button is also comically large for the light, and it’s 14500 only.

Welp.

the more info that comes out in this group buy, thats what im going to do probably. I need another 14500 light like a need a hole in the head. I just bought and am in the process of modifying (5) xeno E03’s. With osram emiiters, sst 2700k, and sst40’s. Their build quality is fantastic and they cost me $12 a piece. Parts form Simon, and im good.

The fw3aa seems cool, but ill wait to see what others think that i trust. Its just not a must have at this point in my collection. I used to love 14500 edc’s, now i love my KR4’s.

Yes it looks good, but still too many things are unknown. Good to be patient and wait what it’s going to be. Probably you can still get it after first review from this same GB.
I hope there will be glow gaskets and glow tail for this.

After I started EDC my E05C I finally found perfect size/weight for EDC light. 1000 mAh 14500 is also more than enough for daily use, but yeah I take bigger light too if I really going to need it.

Is anyone other than us flashlight nerds really buying these lights? Because people seem pretty unanimous they dont like the etching and branding, why do they plaster that stuff on there then?

Definitely needs a clip imo.

I’m definitely waiting on this. I’ll let others be “first on the block” to get this light as some like that. I’m also waiting to see how shipping and Customer Service issues are handled.

I feel sorry for people who don't have a hobby or interest to escape to.

The cigar grip will go in the bin. It’s just wrong.

Could it be a EU or US requirement?

Could be, good point, I didn’t consider that.

I just assumed the manufacturer wanted the brand recognition. But if you can’t buy them at a big box store that point may be moot. Who knows.

So my question is, is the group buy version going to be etched as well?

I’m personally not a fan of the etching in the slightest. But I suppose I could strip the ano from the bezel on my own if we can’t get it without.
