I just watched a YT video review from a guy who has a clear ano WT90, he must have the 25th clear ano! lol. He made a video with some decent beam shots if anyone is interested. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0rtsFd6BQu8

That thing is a beast.

My guess is he is either someone that works at the factory or someone that Jacky knows being that it is a China video. Pretty standard practice for reviews to get advanced copies naturally.

Hi Texas_Ace, what will be the accessories with the flashlight?

I do not know, never asked as flashlight + manual is all I expect with a light, anything else is a bonus IMHO.

In this video you can see a traffic sign that says Suvarnabhumi Airport. This is the airport of Bangkok in Thailand.

I might know who that is then, there are a few reviewers in that area.

Either way, it is highly unlikely that someone purchased a light, the order was processed, it was shipped, made it through customs, was delivered, a review made, video filmed, edited and uploaded in a matter of a few days.

Almost assuredly a review sample that was sent out awhile back. Standard practice with new light releases. Depending on the light it is common to seed 5-20 lights to reviews. More for the small lights.

The first batch of clear are spoken for but another batch is in production and will be ready in a few weeks.

Is the black one still available at the group by price? If so, where do I need to in order to get one? (sorry I’m new to this)

Yes, plenty of black still available.

Just got an update, they are still waiting on the manuals and that is causing some delays.

I am also going to see if they can create unique coupon codes for the first batch of clear lights that I can PM to people privately so we don’t have to worry about someone else stealing them. There are apparently some hoops they have to jump through to get the coupon codes working.

So the expected release time for the group buy is “next week” (assuming that means the ~24th).

He also said that the order for 70 more clear lights is underway and should only be about ~3 weeks from when the sale goes live. So it won’t be that long of a wait for anyone not in the first batch of clear.

Did Jacky say what kept him waiting concerning the manuals? Did he mention any plans for a multi-language manual or is it just the print-job taking some additional time? The English manual is ready and available to him since May 10, 2021.

BTW, I am not sure if it's taken into account yet but could you please put me on the list for one WT90 clear ano (batch #2), please? Thx.

I think it is just the printers he is waiting on, guessing they are backed up after the May holiday.

Isn’t this the only safe way to do it? Even if you PM 25 people the same discount code, they can just order a second one or tell a friend to order one real quick and then those that properly reserved theirs will lose out. Please insist on 25 individual codes (if you can obviously).

I am considering options, we can also give a password to each user that can only be used once and they have to include with the order for example. Coupon codes are apparently a bit of a pain to create on aliexpress. There are options though, not to worry.

That said, this is BLF, I like to think we still have some shred of decency and self-respect as a whole. Wink

Ordering more should not cause any problems, first in first out right?

As in, if you’re one of the initial 25 silver lights and get a code, you can buy 5 silvers and then there will only be 20 silver left for the remaining 24 people?

Sorry if I misunderstood.

Oh, no you will still be limited to 1 from the first batch but you are welcome to buy more from the second batch.

that was my worry when I read that too. I do have faith (given TA is running this) and that we are part of this community that it will work out for the the first 25 silver. I mean if one of us orders 5 that would be friggen dirty, after all this isn't the  spyderco slyzs Bowie pocket knive re-release or anything wink (sorrry, specific inside joke, but that happened I believe).


anyway, let's just hope it all works out fine and no one of the first 25 in line for silver get screwed out of their spot.

Please correct me if I’m wrong.
First batch will be limited to 100 pcs and potential buyers are already selected. First 100 users, who show interest in this flashlight, in this thread.
Price will be 150 usd.

Second batch will follow later, with higher price, 200 usd, 300 usd?

Kind regards
