    Hi,
    EN plated - complete light ($125.00) and polished (+ $15.00). I will go with the GD750, UCL, and smooth reflector, please!
    Thanks...

At the end of the day, that's not going to be what really drives me on this light so I can be flexible. I'm looking for very bright...but not so much current that the light gets very hot or the led is damaged.

    What are the benefits of the Nexgen vs GD?
    The NexGen is boost converter and was designed primarily for primary CR123s. The GD is a buck/boost converter designed for use with rechargeable or primary CR123s.

    Yes Sir! I have parts for my BB and I will enjoy putting it together. PayPal funds are waiting for a go.

    If you have an extra Bare Aluminum??? I DO, I DO! So I can polish it, of course.

    Thank you Fred!

    Ken,

    I only had 50 lights made and all are spoken for at the moment. Perhaps there will be some cancellations that will free some up. If so, I'll let everyone know.

    Of course, I may make more down the road, one never knows.

    Hmmm . . . is it possible to change my preference from HAIII to EN polished? I'll take it either way, but if it is still possible, I'll go with EN polished.

    I'd like the smooth reflector and GD 1000.

    Thanks!

    Sorry, but I don't see where you had signed up for the Blocky Boy before. All 50 pieces are spoken for. If I get another cancellation, I will allocate that to you and let you know about it.

    One quick comment: I noticed there is a possibility of Flupic as a driver; if you have enough, I would take that over the GD1000. If there isn't a Flupic available, that's o.k. too.

    If possible I would like a Flupic polished before plating, and with a smooth reflector. And if by chance somehow you find yourself with a Q5 or R2 bin Cree slap that in there.

    I guess if I want low light I always have my U2.

    Yes Fred you read that right, I want both the light and flupic polished and anodized.

    Your canceled light was already spoken for, but since Bullzeyebill has canceled his indication, then white light gets first crack at it.

    Re the Flupic driver that Cuso requested--he PM'ed me early in the Blocky Boy saga and asked if he could get a Flupic installed. As it turned out, I had a couple that I had snagged from goldserve when he was having his sale, so I agreed to put the Flupic in Cuso's Blocky Boy.

    For all others, please note that the Flupic driver is not an option, so don't ask for it.

    If you have a Flupic, feel free to let me know and I can sell you a BB without an installed driver and LED, and you can install it in the converter module yourself.

    Fred, they have them in stock at TnC products, if you would be kind to subtract the price of a NG or GD from the cost of the BB and purchase on from TnC I would be happy to pay any overflow cost.

    65535,

    Alternatively, you can buy the Flupic from TNC and just ship it to me, please.

    Thanks for your help. I'll take the GD 750. You already have my other selections on your chart.
    I spend my days in the light thinking about flashlights in the dark
