    Yes, All the heads would be interchangable..
    You can use a 2x P60's or a P60 and a smaller
    cree head.. The combinations and led color
    choices will be off da' hook
    Mount options for weapons, belts, tripods....
    There will be a crapload of configurations
    and options, that you wont know what to do
    with yourself

    Outstanding concept.

    Please add me to the interest list.

    I would like one head with a bare emitter, similar my Zebralight H60, which absolutely rocks when flood is needed.

    I would want maximum throw from the other head.

    Hi Sabrewolf,

    I believe you asked if we would be interested or not. I am interested but I cannot justify that type of expense at this time. I will have to limit myself to a $200 or less expenditure every 3 to 12 months.

    Looks like a beautiful project and I am sure that when I see pictures of it I will really want one.

    Who knows, when you are ready to take orders my finances will change.

    This light will take on a new look that is quite a bit different than the original design.
    Think "Carbon Fiber and Titanium"

    Here is a Teaser:



    Thats right folks... Carbon Fiber Tubing

    More details to come

    be interesting to see how this molds to a 2 cell rectangular body as in the original sketches.
    It's not conductive, is it? That may make it easier if Saberwolf is still planning on putting the switch in between the two cells.
    How durable is it? Will it survive edc? I just can't do shelf queens.

    Well, I dont think i will Ever design a light to be a shelf queen.
    I like stuff that can be Seriously abused and used to its full extent.
    The Carbon Fiber tubes don't need to be conduction for the design
    i am going after. There will be 2 seperate switches to control the
    seperate led heads. Both mounted between the cells. Both ends of
    the light will be capped with Titanium Strength and Weight are
    main focal points of the design. I originall wanted a full Ti body..
    But that would end up weighing about 2lbs with that design.
    The new CF and Ti hybrid would prob weigh around the same as
    a single cell Ti 18650 light. Strength is another thing i am working
    on with this new design. I want it to go to at least 100ft dive depths.
    That means double or triple seals.. Since the CF is Extremely strong,
    That wont be too much of an issue. And since i have my own pressure
    chamber.. I can test my products out

    I roughed up a center section protoype in between working on
    the chimera minis.. It weighs the same as a single RCR123 at .8oz / 20g
    or about half of what a single 18650 weighs. I am shooting for a total
    weight of 6oz / 170g. This is an ideal comprimiss between weight and strength.

    Here are a some pics to show you how it may turn out:



    I didn't decide where to put the drivers yet. Possibly in the heads?
    Still up in the air.. But what i Do know.. There WILL be a Tri-Tube
    and Quad-Tube design to follow The quad will have a single
    phlatlight led rated for 4000 lumens Single head of course.
    But fairly light, And small. Just think of it as a Stacked Chimera

    You evil, dirty man... Carbon Fiber, 100 ft dive ratings and possibly a phatlight 4000 lumen model... are you trying to seduce me?
    Glad to hear that these are still in the works, I'm gonna have to start saving money.
    Neutral white, it's the new black.

    Wow. Well yeah, you may as well use it!
    Since we've had to wait so long for the twin head chimera, I hope it comes in on the 'cheap' side of the quality - speed - expense triangle.

    Best,

    It will have to be behind a few other projects like chargers and glow buttons
