[Interest list group buy] Maxtoch X PRO (farthest reaching single-cell LED flashlight) $89-$125

Hey guys, 

In collaboration with Maxtoch I'd like to see how many people are interested in the Maxtoch X PRO. 

It's currently the farthest reaching single-cell LED flashlight on the market. (more info: https://budgetlightforum.com/node/77848)

For a review, check my full review out here: https://1lumen.com/review/maxtoch-x-pro/ 

Prices for the groupbuy: 

If they can sell 1-9, the price will be $125

If they can sell 10-19 the price will be $109

1-9 $125
10-19 $109
20-49 $99
50+ $89

 

Just let me know how many flashlights you will be interested in

 

Maxtoch Hunter X PRO Information: 

  • This is just the flashlight itself, no charger or battery included. 

Throw measurements

I measured the following at 20 meters distance: 

Mode Candelas Meters Yards Miles
Turbo 776,000 1762 1927 1.09
High 752,000 1734 1897 1.08

 

 

Compared to other throwers: 

Candelas agains small LEP flashlights

Maxtoch sells two versions of this light: with and without extra’s (battery, charger, etc).
Based on the assumption we are dealing with the light without extra’s:

I would like to buy ONE light with a max price of $99 (prefer less Wink )

Not interested if demand is lower, and price is higher.

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

This one is without the extra stuff. 

Sure, let's hope we can get at least 20 people then Big Smile

Interesting to see how things have improved. I never got one of those.

250kcd in 2015 was pretty good I think. 

Wonder why the lack of interest?

Interested. I think there is a lack of information/coverage on the light. Many fireflies t9r and Noctigon k1 owners would be shocked this thing exists. The only thing stopping me is the price.

I understand. Here is my review: https://1lumen.com/review/maxtoch-x-pro/

It looks like not enough people are interested to get a great deal, so maybe it's better to close this thread Smile

Hey, 

That's not really nice for sure. Increasing the price is not nice for the buyers, for sure. As a company, they probably have their reasons for doing it. 

Fortunately, I didn't have to deal with warranty yet.

All I know is that 1-9 people interested would make it $125. 

 

If anybody is interested in paying 125, let me know so I can get the coupon.

I might post this in the new Zealand hunting forum since Maxtoch is very popular here

I am interested if we get enough people. That’s a good cd per dollar figure. We need to share this thread.

The other thing is lots of people probably just bought the wildtrail thrower.

Please do. Thumbs Up

Edit: Even though I’m aware that PostNL will add 21% VAT.

Can you email Maxtoch and ask if the group buy pricing is available via their website? AliExpress will charge NZ customers +15% tax.

Only yesterday I learned I have had trouble with my email for about a month. 
I didn't receive a reply until I fixed the email issue. 

Anyway, Maxtoch said you can buy directly at their Maxtochstore!

I posted this on the nz forum, but no one interested when it required making an account over here.

One mentioned the quality not being the same as it used to be, so maybe not wanting to take the risk direct from China, most want a local warranty.

That is because of international tax laws. If I buy directly from Maxtoch, customs (PostNL) will charge me 21% VAT PLUS a handling fee, before it will be delivered to me. Ali will charge VAT, but no handling fee.

If you could let me know how many people are interested, I can send you the coupon, so they can use it. No problem

I emailed maxtoch, long tube is not compable with e-switch head.
Also they use cslnm1.tg over culnm1.tg because it tested better for them. Maybe it’s the slightly cooler temperature.

I’ll be ordering one once I finish testing the fireflies t9r, maybe that driver will be able to match this model’s seemingly perfect thermal sustain.
