    I think if the vial was nestled in a groove and covered with clear
    epoxy resin it would be almost impossible to break it.

    ..."Solarez Fiberfill UV-Cure Epoxy Resin" That's off the tube I have been using.

    Now if they would make tritium rings...one could place them between the bars and the optics in the GatLights... or here is the ultimate tritium idea...(I don't know how thick those are) one could glue 12 tritium sticks onto the back side of the bars that would illuminate either the carbon fiber... or even the optics... somewhat expensive though.

    Although I've never seen a tritium ring, they do make bent arcs, and multiple bent arcs of the appropriate size could approximate a ring pretty well.

    They don't make full rings, but partial circles are possible: 45° to 300°, depending on section size and radius of curvature.

    Now I have pictures in my head of making trit rings out of 4 or 8 pieces (either 90 or 45 degree arcs each) but alternating colors between sections...

    I'm going to have to drag out my calipers and my gatlight when I get home. (Especially since I'm lacking access to any engineering samples of the EOS )

    Hey Bart, what sort of minimum purchase quantity would you guess would be needed if a group of folks wanted to attempt such a thing?

    I'd have to have some specs first before I can make an inquiry, but the minimum I have to order is about 500 USD per item.

    By the way, I have to admit that at first I was not thrilled with the bejeweled version suggested at the top of this thread, and was following mostly for indications of a no-bling ti variant. But since that time, I've discovered that the sparkly version would actually make a perfect gift for a couple of people I know. So now I find that I'm waiting for one of each!

    I too would like to see the progress on this light and would be interested in both variants of the light.

    Keep up the good work.

    How about an emerald option?

    I'm still in for the original design with all the bling.

    How about a ring of more smaller sapphires closer to the edge of the bezel, with tritium embedded below them. A sapphire gitd o-ring so to speak. Not practical, but I can dream can't I

    Any updates on this light? I can't wait to see the finished product. I hope you guys are going to add trits too.

    I would like to know if this is getting close to production too. It looks to be a fantastic light and I want to get one.

    I like everything about it. The stones are a nice touch and make it distinct from other lights. I like companies that push the envelope and try to make their products have something a little extra. IMHO, both the EOS and the gatlight have an artwork quality about them that makes them more than a simple flashlight.

    Did this concept die on the vine? Any news?

    There has been news on a different forum.

    Just for reference purposes, the discussion or better next step evolution of the EOS has been continued in this thread here (now the light is known as Polaris since EOS is trademarked).

    Anyway here is the link...check it out...some interesting new ideas...
