I have a Convoy C8 with a XPL HI NW and Bistro driver (the exact same as tge X5/X6 use)
Can only spot reliable at 100 meter, the Convoy is a bit brighter at that distance
But the X5 is so much smaller it surely is a giggle maker and that is just the ALU version, I am sure a copper Astrolux will find its way here someday since that is such a looker
This here is of course labelled Kronos and has a serial, if you are into those kind of things this is your chance it is not often one can score this.
If I remember I will get pics to show comparison (or maybe the Op has a C8)The X6 is a tad bit shorter than the C8 but I like the Mag-lite feel. The X5 is a different beast. The form looks the same but it is a smaller 14500 light that puts out as much (lumens) as anything else (C8 or X6) and it throws just as good as the Manker T01.
If you, or anybody, wants the BLF light with the serials there are only 400 of each in existence and these came with the lighted tail switches and the Bistro UI.
The Op is definitely not making any money on this and he states that he never even touched the lights with his hands.
The X6 has a semi deep reflector its not as big as the C8 so throw wont be as far. But this version has no centering ring the reflector sits directly over the LED because the reflector screws to the body of the light.
Overall the X6 is shorter then the C8… I like the shape better they are really well made and a well designed lights the x6.
The show stopper is the X5 its an amazing light! so small and tiny but it does an amazing job of throwing light!
