2-tone pocket rocket

Anyone like my little creation? I think the colors work nicely with the clip being black too. It is 84mm long and 24mm in diameter (not counting the clip).

Where did you get shorty tube other than black?

It is a black shorty with a black clip and a green head and green tail. Here is another pic:

Sofirn does sell the SP40 in green and desert tan, but I don’t know if those come with color-matched short tubes or just black ones.

I asked Sofirn about colored short tubes. Nope, only black. Aren’t these SC31Pros with short tubes great for EDC? I love mine. Yours looks good. Mine is getting pocket wear in with my keys but that’s ok. Used it to open a beer the other day.

Yes, color matching short tubes come with the SP40’s. I too inquired to Sofirn about subbing a green tube from an SP40
in place of ordering/paying for a black tube. They won’t do it. I would order a green SC31PRO if they would accommodate the request for a matching shorty. I already have two in black, and an SP40 in Desert Tan, and I’m not interested in ordering another SP40 in green just to get the 18350 tube. Funny thing is, months ago I made a request for a tan shorty, and they shipped me one for free with another light order. Go figure. If they can include it with the SP40, why not do it for the SC31PRO ?

@TIFisher
So you didn’t already have a tan shorty that came with your tan SP40? IIRC, you can get SC31 Pro in desert tan — but perhaps you like the green. I think the 2-tone works pretty good with the green since both the shorty and the clip are black. They should sell a 2-pack of shorty tubes where one is green and one is desert tan!

I was originally going to get a SP32A V2 since it also works with the shorty, and it’s on sale for just $18 right now. But the shorter head, onboard charging, better UI, and better color selection was enough to push me to the the SC31 Pro instead. I don’t plan to EDC it, but there are times I want little light to carry that can blast.

Funny you mentioned that SP32A V2. I bought one in Tan, and wanted the 18350 tube for it (after trying the SP40 tube on it). Dilemma was, I use the SP40/18350 combo for a work headlamp, and prefer the shorter configuration, thus my request to Sofirn for the ‘a la carte’ tan tube (for the SP32A V2).

Well that explains it! Funny how your picture almost makes the SP32A V2 look thinner than the SC31 Pro. And they say wearing black makes one look thinner. LOL
