    Post Leef Bodies

    Friday I shipped an assortment of LeefBodies to the Hound and they should be in his inventory and on his Web page by mid-week.

    There are C-C and C-M bodies, in various sizes (including 6x) and all are in gray with a few in raw. The grays come in two shades, a rather dark shade and a somewhat lighter one (but none the almost-tan color of some earlier Leef bodies).

    Step right up! Send before midnight tonight...

    Seriously, my apologies to Leef fans for the extremely long time it's taken me to get back to this project and crank out the parts.

    Shrug Leef -- Huh?

    Hey guys, a quick note about all the great interest in my Leef parts.

    I've been so busy with other (non-flashlight) things that I've just had no time nor energy to pursue the hobby like I used to. Unfortunately, this certainly was frustrating and annoying to Leef customers who wanted this part or that one, or had questions about the parts and their applications. I simply haven't had time to answer the PMs -- in fact, I went for months without even opening CPF.

    Shame on me!

    Anyhow, I may (repeat may) be getting back to having time to reinvest myself in the hobby. In fact (as I recently posted), I sent a batch of Leef bodies to the Hound last week.

    That said, I don't expect to be able to keep up with PMs, so I suggest you not use them, or not be too disappointed if you do and get a very late (or no) reply. This is absolutely nothing personal, it's just that my time and attention are very limited.

    Shine on!

    Hi leef!

    Can you post a pic of some of the combinations you can build with the parts? Maybe a m*g build of sorts. Guess I'm a visual kind of person.

    Thanks!

    Hello Leef, any luck in more of your "E" head, "C" tail 1x 18650 bodies in either natural, olive or black? Would really like to get the most out of my 3.7v "E" bulbs, thanks......

    This is indeed great news. I've been enjoying my Leef-bodied M4 for awhile now. (C tail - M head, 2x18650 body. Tailcap and head off of a stock M4 bought slightly used from the MarketPlace). The Leef body just feels more comfortable in my hands than the one that comes on a stock M4. Especially if you want to use it for constant-on, and try choking up on the barrel. Tried out a stock M4 at a B&M shop. Just didn't like it. Liked the output though. Took a chance on a Leef body. Couldn't be happier.

    Looking forward to a C-C, 1x18650 body. Or possibly a C-C, 2x18500 body.

    Still no gray BigLeefs


    Oh, well, good to see you're back on CPF
    Made myself a Bigleef85 with the black bodies and tailcap, AW C cells, gray M neck and a KT4. Gloriously functional, but a little wierd colour combination . Is the rumoured Leef head coming out?

    And what about a Bezel/Head or an adaptor for the BigLeef to fit the LF D36 lamps??.....for my 3x "C" cells and the EO-13 lamp.....just bliss.....and would look good too, all in proportion.

    I don't think that the new stuff has been listed at lighthound yet? I'm looking for C-M adaptor or C-M 2x18650 body if there are no new adaptors...

    Oh well, get 'em while you still can!

    Hardly. I have both, and there is really no comparison. Leef's tubes are a level of magnitude better, in construction, material, anodizing and appearance. I love FM's creations, and have dozens of them, but just speaking of the 2x18500 and 2x18650 knurled tubes, Leef's are far better products.

    I upgraded my P1D CE Q5 with one of Leef 's clicky bodies and then the wife stole it . His tubes are good to go.

    I just ordered 3 in natural - 1x18650 (C-C), 2x18500 (C-C) and 2x18650 (M-C).

    Any idea where I can get a SF M3 head for the 2x18650 and a C2 head for the 2x18500? The only SF heads I can find so far are the turbo head conversion kits.

    Off-Topic answer.

    It seems like OpticsPlanet.com carries it. Not sure if they have it already in stock. I have not bought from them.

    Good luck to your search!

    Didn't I come here to look for super-bright and ultra-efficient-high-tech LED lights? Why do I keep going back to incan?

    Thanks!! This is what I was looking for.

    Ok, this is going to truly display my ignorance, but do I need the Leef body with a C or M head to use with the Z46? I just assumed that the M3, M4 and M6 required the Leff with the M head. Help - I need to change my order quickly if I got it wrong...

    Is there any easy way to tell, or a number that tells you which SF heads are considered 'C' versus 'M'?
