Convoy C8+ but which emitter/driver?

Hello

I plan to add a [specifically] Convoy C8+ to my collection but unsure which one to get.

What I’m after in this case:
- tighter beam
- beam that is most likely to cut through low levels of fog (to ping floating objects)

Not important in this case:
- Colour warmth
- CRI
- Stated lumens

You might try the KY CSLNM1.FY orange-yellow light. It should be good at cutting through fog without as much backscatter as some of the 6500 k lights tend to have.

I use an SST-20 in 2700k with a 5 amp driver for the same purpose. You still get good color rendition and little backscatter, but I bet the above osram orange-yellow will be a tighter beam.

Interesting suggestions and food for thought. Thanks.
