Hello Hot Brass,

 

Your best source for the FF5GT, including a full set of accessories (lens cap, case, battery carriers) is Nealsgadgets.com.  He is offering a 15% discount with code NDNA. Shipping should be under two weeks, it is not officially released until August 8th.

 

As an FF5 owner, I absolutely love its broad even pure neutral white beam (4300K) with LEP-like intensity hot spot. I recommend the 4300K version (not 6500K) with a spare battery carrier and 8 Samsung 30Q cells, all of which Neal's carries. Give this light a try, IMHO it will stun you with its abilities.

 

Here is the link:

Have fun!

Thanks for posting.I am partial to bright white light,so I would normally pick the 6500K if I had a choice,which is by the way is/was a mistake on his web-site(I brought this to his attention),so they are actually available in 4300K and 6000K.
Why do you recommend the 4300K version and not 6000K,?….just curious.Thanks,HB

HB,

 

I base my recommendation on what I chose for my FF5 purchase 2 years ago. It has an absolutely pure neutral white with no color shift and a jaw dropping LEP-like center hotspot for stunning throw.

 

It's color resembles a 5000K neutral white LED. Over on CPF I saw a lot of FF5 beamshots with both color temps and predictably the 6000K version had a noticeably blue tint, which is par for the course for all cool white LEDs that have max output levels above all.

 

Since I use it only outdoors, the 4300K gives me great color rendition, especially with natural greens, foliage etc. Much more vivid and lifelike.  The 6000K version has a slightly higher output spec, but IMHO colors in nature appear flat or washed out by comparison.

 

  1. It's truly personal preference; if you like cool white LEDs then go for the 6000K.

 

Myself, I prefer neutral, not warm tint and the 4300K version was a home run choice for me 

 

Based on my FF5 experience, I strongly endorse trying the FF5GT and strongly recommended an additional accessory 4x 18650 battery carrier ($30).

 

Check out this FF5 thread from 2 years ago for beamshot images and user impressions:

Grab an FF5GT and have a blast!

Ya Neal is awesome to buy from if he ships to Canada. I’ve bought at least 15 lights from him

HB,

 

Using the code ND25F at Nealsgadgets.com will give you a 25% ($109 savings) discount on the FF5GT,  lowering the price to $330.

 

To me that's a huge incentive to make a purchasing decision. As a FF5 owner from 2 yrs ago, I hope you decide to give the FF5GT a try. I think you will be very impressed!

Mine just arrived. Very nice… Even with the batteries only partly charged it burned a hole in a cardboard box I had laying around. Can’t wait to get this thing out at night

You might even be able to cook Canadian bacon (:
