I was debating whether or not to order a reflector for my L1 to make my own milk-like mod. Well, I didn't have the reflector, but I did have a spare SSC P4, USWOH. So I plugged in the soldering iron, and a short time later, I had the same light as before, only with a far brighter emitter.
To my surprise, the beam isn't bad at all. In fact, it's essentially what it was with the old Lux I, only brighter. Another pleasant surprise is that the low is still quite low, but the high is friggin' awesome. I can't explain why the low is still pretty low, but it is. On advantage that this light has over my ML1's of times past is the gentler transition at the edge of the spill, thanks to the optic.
So, if anyone has a SF L1 with a hex-head sitting around, this is a cheap way to make it awesome.
