    Scott, please give me an estimate of when you will be able to talk/work on this light.

    I have a base L1 already.

    Thanks

    Black06, I tried to contact you at the phone number you provided but there was no answer. Please contact me at your convenience.

    Crenshaw, I'm curious after you've had some time to use the light.. how is the firmware working for you?

    Hi Scott, Sorry i didnt see the question earlier....

    Its still one of my easiest to use lights...the firmare works fine, I hardly use the Miser mode actually as most of the time i have access to power, and am more in need to of a very bright light. I think the simplicity of the modes work very well for me.

    The one thing i am wondering about though, is why the optimum (meaning most hotspot, less spill) beam isnt when the optic is screwed all the way down? its not a problem, although i do remember Surefire optics being that way when thier locktited.

    Crenshaw, as far as I've been able to tell, SureFire designed their TIR optic and the head itself so tightest focus would happen somewhere close to, but not quite at the bottom of the threaded range. I suspect they did that so each head could be adjusted in the factory to optimal focus before the Loktite dried. Taking this approach allows for some variability from piece to piece without adversely impacting the beam.

    I don't believe Crenshaw has fixed it yet, and his light has not reached me as of yet, though it is en route at the moment. When a Cree XR-E dome gets sheared off the emitter, in most cases there is no acceptable fix... could try epoxy and gently reattach but in most cases the output won't be the same as with a stock emitter... in many cases the emitter will no longer light at all!
