We already know this isn't going to happen, but add me to the list anyways
My Mods.. http://www.candlepowerforums.com/vb/...5&postcount=78
Hobby only, I don't do custom mods as a service, thanks for understanding.
Just in case, put me down as well.
I would be in for his LS27 ver 2.0 for sure add me to the wishlist. perhaps he might make it with a sst-50.
The PD classics are timeless!!!! I haven't seen any other lights surpass the sheer beauty and uniqueness of them. I am so glad this thread came about as I thought I was the only one wishing the unimagineable. Output: not important. Runtime: not important. Emitter type: not important. Having new runs of both LS20, LS27, and new creation PD lights - PRICELESS. What a dream it would be to hear Don say it so and remember how Ford re-invents the Mustang. What about stock and re-design runs. The new designs would feature anything that Don has been dreaming up while still keeping the PD utility feature. I personally would love to see an Arc6-sized 1xCR123 light with the variablilty of a T1a. Put me, my brother-in-law, my future son, my ever-distant second cousin, and oh well I think that covers it down for one.
If only Don's hints at an Eclipse Lunasol 20/27 were to materialize! I've wanted an LS27 for awhile and having the flexibility of an extra two-??? modes would be so kewl!!!
Alas, he's moved beyond the piston drive. Maybe he was discouraged with the way Nitecore implemented it? Personally, my D10s were the lights that convinced me I absolutely had to have a Lunasol (I had just started in this hobby then). My D10s are still my favorite small Al lights due in no small part to the piston drive! You can't beat the tritium vials in the "button" either. What a great light, I wish I was around when the last run of Lunasol 27s happened, you know I'd have two to keep my 20s company!!!
It's better to have and not need than need and not have.
South Florida get-together for anyone who's interested!
Now that the LS 27 has become my life's mission, it seems ridiculous for me not to bump this thread up. Over a year has gone by since the last post to this thread and I hope that I can re-ignite the passionate out-cry for the resurrection of the LS 27!!! Please Don, hear us, feel our yearning, we are shouting from the mountain tops! Please bring back the lunasol 27. We love you Don !! Oh, and yes, put me down for 2 at the minimum.
I am definately interested in a new run of these
Currently into SPYs....
My Lights In Detail
Speaking of ripoffs, since Don has declared several times that he has no interest in profiting further from the LunaSol design, maybe he could license it to people who have the tools and expertise to build a "tribute" model, something functionally the same but aesthetically different enough not be confused with the original runs. He already licensed the PD concept to NiteCore and Arc; why not let TnC or Cool Fall or anyone else who might be interested in reinventing the LunaSol have a go at it? It could be a group project. I'll bring S'mores.

Yes, do it
another run of this grail of light
I don't want a new wave, because it will depreciate the unique I have in my collection
Happy to see that you are still in business with your always desired flashlights
Come on Don "if you build it, they will come", and you can even make it with the clicky pak's...
McGizmo's and a whole bunch more
Don would be shooting himself in the foot if he did one.
