I think the Maxtoch X Pro is interesting enough to deserve its own thread, so I started a new thread to discuss ANSI throw compared to visible throw

Isnt that discussed long before?

Maybe those whining smart ass BLF members should just stick to the facts instead of rejecting the reality and substituting their own.

ChibiM- thanks for the info!

 

question- In the K1 graph, is the "x" axis supposed to represent "lumens" or "candela? It's candela, right? 
Thanks!

ChibiM – thanks for the very nice review I found on 1Lumen.com.

Unless you have an obsession for owning the best, brightest, etc, light, there is a small matter of the price. Maxtoch focusses on selling their lights to hunters, who value functionality over looks and price. But for me that price is just a bit steep for owning yet another wow-light. Slap in a green Osram and lower the price and I might be persuaded.

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

Translated quote of Fokke en Sukke:

“I see that it performs extremely well my dear fellow, but does it also work in theory?”

And I repeat once more: lux measurents are a direct measure of hotspot brightness and as such it gives you the same information of the real life throw distance that your eyes will give, but way more accurate (eyes suck at estimating brightness).

What will also affect real life performance/usability of a thrower is hotspot size and tint, beamshots can provide that extra information, but how bright things light up in a distance is purely determined by the throw number, as measured with a luxmeter.

I just learned about that comic strip after Googling the name...

Does "Fokke en Sukke" sound dirty in Dutch?

The names are reminiscent of dirty words but Fokke is actually an existing dutch name (Friesian), not sure about Sukke.

Yeah, on Wikipedia it says:

...the creators have pointed out that "Fokke" and "Sukke" are ordinary West Frisian-language names...

 

But in English, it sounds like something you'd ask for from a lady of the evening.

If it sounds alike, it probably means the same. Or does it?

Here’s a quote for the Eternal Hall of Fame.
From our long-time-ago Secretary of State: mr. Josef (what’s in a name) Luns.
When asked about his hobbies, he replied: I fok horses.

EN: horse breeder
FR: eleveur de chevaux
DE: Pferdezüchter
NL: paardenfokker

Just not in that order.

I want a cool white light about as much as I want Cool Ranch Soda.
