Opinions of the BLFGT94

Hello Everyone. I am, in the next couple of weeks, going to purchase a BLFGT94 to add to my collection. I would like to hear people’s opinions on that light. So anyone who has experience with the BLFGT94 please let me know about them, thanks Jim

Want to light up a mountain? gt94…
Accurate color and god enough throw to shoot stuff? stick an sst20 in a M21A C8.

I mostly still just use the C8. Contemplating customizing with a buck driver

The beam of GT94 is so wide animals think you turned the sun on, they don’t look up at you. GT90 would be better. The color and especially the cct are horrendous…you want 4000k- for throw, and the spill literally contracts your pupils

If you can deal with the downsides of an HID, the FF5 is a much better light. If you want raw reach, get an LEP.

I only like high CRI. Collection:

Fireflies NOV-MU 21 4500k E21A

Fireflies ROT66 219B SW45 D220

Fireflies E07 Copper 219B SW45k? (odd/higher lumen bin with lower r9 and higher cct?)

Fireflies E07 219B SW45k

Fireflies E07x Pro sst20 FA4 4000k (mail)

 

Varmint removal:

Convoy M21A C8 ver SST20 4000k (5a)

Convoy S2+ SST20 4000k  FB4 (3200ma)

Memes:

BLF GT94

Emisar D18 660nm SST20 (mail)

I decided to give myself a cooling off period before posting my reply to this topic, so as to appear not too effusive, too bubbly and too overly exuberant about the BLF GT94.

Out of 49 high performance lights in my nascent collection, my two favorites are the light orange peel GT94 and the smooth GT94, that I got on October and November, 2020.

The GT94 is a big, heavy light, but it gives the biggest, heaviest power-thrower performance. The beam profile and beam performance is a must see flashoholic life summit experience that can not be missed!

It supersedes my two X65 that excited my life in December 2016, and doubly excited my life, one in each hand, in March 2017.

A little bit less lumens but some more throw than the R90TS that I also know and love. Much more more power than dedicated throwers, such as MT90 Plus and MF05 that I also know and love.

I have a more than a few multiple emitter XHP70.2 lights, in small, medium and huge sizes, so I do not have the GT4, yet.

Several comparison videos that I have seen do not show just how much throw the GT94 has, in my humble opinion. 

The amazing thing is that Acebeam, Imalent, Fenix, Olight and Nightcore nor anyone else ever came out with multiple SBT90.2  power thrower lights. Only Haikelite and Lumentop, and I do thank them. With two HK90 and two BLF GT94, that shall suffice sufficiently, it would so appear.

 

For those times when the GT94 is too big to carry, there are so many smaller lights to choose from. But there is only one BLF GT94!

Because I like big lights, my flashlightical views lean heavily toward both the extreme bright and the extreme heft.

I love my GT94vn.

A couple pro tips include making sure to get button tops and I strongly recommend getting a lens cover. I ended up getting one from B&H Photo, the “OP/TECH USA Hood Hat, XX-Large.” If you plan to store them with head disconnected from the body I recommend getting these other two hood hats as it’s a perfect fit: “ OP/TECH USA Hood Hat-PK Micro” and “ OP/TECH USA Hood Hat, Micro.” When it comes to shoulder strap, I use a Yeti shoulder strap from my Hopper 12.
