Compact Tri Flood 14500

I do like the knurling at both ends of this light.

One of you reviewers in here needs to take this guy under your wing and school him on how to present a new light. Cool

thanks for the link
that is the countycom version of the FWAA
they placed a MOQ of 500, in order to get the few machining changes to the bezel and body..

as usual they hype the product as if it was their own manufacturing in California.. when in fact, they are selling Lumintop manufactured lights…

I do like Lumintops…

Of course it is the FWAA.
I like how they state .. “WE created” hahaha

I’m tempted to purchase … JUST for that knurling – but hey, 3 Nichia never hurt anybody right? Evil

you cant trust countycom regarding their website info:

“Emitter Type : Nichia 219c 4500K”

there is no such animal

also note their version does not use Anduril.. so I see little motivation to choose it over the FWAA, which is available in fancy metals too…

it is also a Lumintop host without the Anduril UI

Wish I could get the tail cap, but the lack of Anduril and only a choice of 219c is a no go for me.

EDC rotation:
FW1A, LH351D 4000k (second favorite)
FW3A, LH351D 3500k
FW3A, SST20 FD2 4000k
FW3A, Nichia 4000k sw40 r9080 (favorite light!)
FW3A, Cree XP-L Hi 5A3
Emisar D4V2, SST20 4000k

This has Lumintop’s lame hold for off UI, which is apparently the best they can manage without help from BLF.
