Thanks for posting this, I just ordered one! Thumbs Up

I bought an X6R in 2016 and put an XP-L HI in it. My collection has grown considerably since then, but it’s still one of my favorite lights.

You’re right, their setup is the only way a dual-switch light should be! Party

Wow, great find!! Gifted one of these to my brother years ago but didn’t get one for myself either. Main thing for me was it being a side switch X6, leaving the tail button was just icing on the cake. also thanks for the tip on those cool Cigar Grips from KD! I was getting ready to order some drop-ins so I’ll be adding these!

Coincidentally I was planning on a fasttech order this month too, I really should grab an X6R while they’re still available, but I’ve been on a bit of a new flashlight buying frenzy lately and probably should slow it down! The fasttech listings look like a old stock sell-off, but since this has the SST40 upgrade maybe these actually are under current production?

Mezzol… Apparently Eagle eye had changed their name to Mezzol a few years back, I was also hoping to find the Mysterious Eagle Eye/Mezzol X8R in fasttech but no such luck!

I’m still Sad over the 2019 X8R debacle, it looked really cool, a modular system with interchangeable heads, but only a few people ever got their hands on one, I really wanted the complete set with all 3 heads!

I’ve also been looking for another Eagle Eye X2R with no luck. I’m surprised Simon/Convoy, Jaxman, Ekoras or someone else isn’t producing that model too, it’s basically a Convoy S2 with USB charging! There’s nothing else like it!

I actually never knew about any of the others from Eagle Eye. The X6R was the only one that appealed to me.

Does double clicking the side switch still turn it on and off like the original?

Not on this model. Side switch has only a modes adjustment feature when the light is on (the way god intended). Silly

Not to be ‘that guy’, but have you tried it on your sample?

Wow. I hope they really do flashlights again! Before they disappeared from stores, I managed to buy Mezzol X8R-L XHP70. The flashlight is great, I hope they will sell it again because I need more))

Sorry for my poor english.

I’m not seeing the SST40 on the fasttech link – only a 350lmn option for the X6R. Where’s the SST40 option?

Noice.

I got an original X6 and X6 host, that I never touched. Wanted to, but never got around to doing anything with them.

Always liked the nice clean shape.

That’s it. It’s erroneously labeled.

I am in for one (or 2.)

It’s funny how much better it looks with the tak ring.

Thanks rusty. Sorry for doubting you. I was hopeful it still had that feature.

I took a chance, folks, pretty much knowing that the “350 lumen” thing was a complete screw-up on their part. That’s what I ordered. It’s the only one.

No, that’s a triple-emitter light. But the body appears similar.

You’re one of the lucky ones! That’s the model I was referring to in my previous post, I wanted that and the two other different heads that lego’d to make a modular system, but none of the pieces ever returned to stock and all listings have disappeared.
