How many "BLF" lights has there been?

I know there must have been a lot. Probably a few before I joined, although I think I have some of the ground breaking models that were more than just a label, but where custom or tailored to BLF specs. And probably quite a lot in recent years too. Although I don’t know if they have been custom for the forum or not.

I think I’ve found all of my “BLF” lights. And I’ve got 14…






Anyone want to fill in the gaps? Big Smile

Nice, some there i didn’t know about (unsurprisingly :D).
What was different about the BLF edition of the Thrunite T10, and what’s that sat on the Mac next to the D80?

More recently the FW3A, LT1 and Cometa spring to mind.
Then there’s the Wildtrail D80v2 and WT90.

For special editions there’s the Sofirn SP36 and Q8.

Found another one I’d forgotten about. I’m sure it originally had something etched on it, but alas I can see no markings now. But it has been well used over the years.

Rather surprised this thread hasn’t garnered more interest. Sigh of the times maybe??? Question

Can’t remember on the T10. It hasn’t got any blinkies and is an XP-G2. But I can’t recall if anything was done specifically or if it was just a discounted price with the BLF moniker added.

The other light you refer too was one designed by the forum members and a member (now Reylight I think) arrange manufacture. It was know as the BLF Ti at the time and is an 18500/18650 custom titanium light with tritium in the head and tailcap.

It was supplied as a host for members to fit their own driver/LED combo.

Was a pretty cool project and quite sensible money.

Here is one thread on it: https://budgetlightforum.com/node/40336

There was a project/build thread, but I can’t seem to find it at the moment.

BLF Q8, and GT as well. I think that GT4 was a BLF light as well, but I’m not sure.

I was not here at the time but I thought Cometa was CPF Italia and not BLF?

I’m new and wasn’t aware of the BLF models until I came across a couple on Sofirns website yesterday.

That’s an awesome looking project.

Also, Sofirn C01 was (is?) a BLF light.

I don’t have time ATM to search, but some time in the past another member had posted a list.

That was a fast search BLF List the list is from 2015 quite “old”

Neat flashlights Chicken Drumstick!

I’m sure there are tons of posts behind them too. The original BLF Q8 thread has 17,432 posts!

I’d rather use my flashlight around the house than turn on the lights.
