best thrower host?

recently i put together a p60 style host with a t6 drop in. while it was impressive for it's size, it wasn't a throw monster like some of the other lights i see people posting lighting up barns hundreds of yards away. that is the what i need for work. i have been looking at something like a c8 or there abouts. something single cell. i have seen some that look nice but upon looking at them closer notice that the threads look like they were cut with a hack saw. maybe i am spoiled by solarforce? are there any lights out there that fit the bill that are on par with solarforce lights or maybe i should just spend the extra money and buy a sf thrower?

thanks for putting up with my endless questions,
