yeah.. I guess its pretty useless for me in Japan. But its actually pretty cheap to send stuff from here overseas, but that can take another 2-3 weeks depending on where you live. (the cheapest AirMail option so to say)
But then it might not be a good deal anymore.
pity they cant just send it 1 by 1. Saves a lot of trouble for us ;)
It's an interesting idea but maybe not worth the hassle. They're saving on costs at the expense of our convenience when they might as well just make it more like 30% off. If they shipped it for $23 (about 30% off shipped retail price) then you basically arrive at the same total price when is all is said and done, minus the hassle of redistributing.
Guess that is what it would take to get me to get in on this buy. I get that they are quality lights. I get that they are wonderful on AA. I don't get why people are so taken by this light?
I know if someone puts together the right group buy they will sell a ton. I would likely pick up at least another one as a gift for someone to use with AA.
Frankly I would never pay close to market again for this light. I like 14500 lights for myself and the only thing the Zeno does well on 14500s is be bright. Even an under driven C8 blows that out of the water so what does it get you? I was so disappointed. Low is way to bright and has lousy run time. The heat management is so poor that high is basically unusable for any task that will take more than a minute. My TrustFire R5-A3 is infinitely more useful on 14500s and all I have to sacrifice is clicking through a useless strobe with a tail switch that is a tad mushy. As for durability, only time will tell but could wear them out 2 to 1 for the same price. Guess I just expected more from a light in that price range.
I would like to see a group buy on an EastwardYJ J09, or an R5-A3. Too bad they wouldn't sell nearly as well as a Zeno group buy will.
