    There's a lot more to get...

    Here's the first LF2XT with a 3D tail. The piston is completely custom made and a Jeff's "system" has been developed to activate the switch with the right finger press, nothing to do with the stock one or Steve's Ti buttons (wich are beautiful). It won't activate in your pocket.
    The original XP-E LED was swapped to a Nichia 219 wich produces a little wider beamshot and a perfect neutral tint.

    The touch of this gem is amazing. No words to describe... You have to hold one in your hand.

    Its 16 trits (perfectly installed) led me to name it as "Sweet Little Sixteen"

    The "Sweet Little Sixteen" is simply stunning! Jeff is a true artist with ti and a lathe...

    I was recently honored to be able to purchase another new light from Jeff. His work is so fine that even a blind man can appreciate it. I fall asleep many times with a JHanko light in my hands. I can feel it's finish after my eyes have closed and I'm drifting off to sleep. Even in the bright daytime the 3D tail delights and amuses.

    Thank you Jeff for sharing your talent with us admirers!

    Hey Jon,

    That EX10 it's a real beauty! I like the trits in the head instead the battery tube. Unusual and very appealing.

    Ramon, you are the preeminent Jeff Hanko fan and collector. You are The Keeper of the Faith. You graciously sold me my first Jeff Hanko light and told me to mark your words. You said that Jeff would return, and he did. For you to compliment my collection is the highest accolade and I'm very proud. Thank you, Sir!

    Here's a poor quick shot of my current treasures (a third LF2XT is missing as it's sent to Jeff for some modding work)

    Fantastic photos of your JHanko lights compasillo!

    Thanks for keeping the hope alive for more of Jeff's ti masterpieces.

    Mr. Jeff Hanko is a magician machinist and visionary designer. His "3D" tritium pistons for the EX10 and D10 custom build is a masterpiece of precision engineering that only he can bring to the table. Recently Jeff realized a design he's been considering for a while. Namely, bringing the 3D tailcap to the legendary, rare and extremely valuable Lite Flux 2XT flashlight!

    This is a AAA/10440 (10x44mm battery) flashlight. Jeff's rendition is a few thousands of an inch wider and a actually a little bit shorter than the original aluminum flashlight. Yet, he's managed to achieve a 10 piece GTLS 3D tailcap! There are also 10 GTLS (Gaseous Tritium Light Source) vials embedded in the head, behind matching fluted depression. This is the very epitome of perfection!

    The Lite Flux 2XT has a very advanced and sophisticated programmable interface. There is a 3 page color coded flowchart depicting the intricacies of the two user interfaces available on this flashlight! You can set up to 5 levels individually using logarithmic or linear steps and the light will blink out the value while you program it so you know exactly the level set. It also has a visible voltage meter and will blink out the battery voltage on demand. Switchable Automatic Power Off prevents the light from being mistrakenly turned on in your pocket or bag to drain the battery or possibly cause burning. This is a very bright, to very dim light. It has ramping and discrete levels as well. It's pretty absurd how technical and aesthetic this beauty is.

    In my opinion, this is among a literal handful or less of 'most holy grails' of the worlds flashlights. Only a few of these JHanko 3D LF2XT flashlights were created in a delightfull 10x6 configuration. Ramon (Compasillo) was the very first to have obtained these from Jeff. He calls it the 'Sweet Sixteen' configuration and boy is he right!. Ramon is, in my opinion the 'keeper' of the flame as regards Jeff Hanko's lights. I purchased my first EX10 from Ramon not very long ago after he very generously offered it to me and said "Jeff will be back". Ramon, I'm so very glad you were right and thank you for leading me to this fine treasure!

    To my knowledge, there is only one JHanko 10x10 3D LF2XT. I humbly present a few hasty photos of it for your enjoyment...

    Thank you, Jeff!

    That JHanko 10X10 3D Ti LF2XT is absurdly beautiful egrep. Congratulations on it.

    Hmmmmmm, I have an original black HA LF2XT. Just maybe I can send it to Jeff.

    This is the exact thread I was hoping to find when joining CPF today. I recently "discovered" JHanko's work on another forum and became instantly mesmerized with his craftsmanship. Thanks

    Completely agreed... Glad you finally got one (only one?) of these grails!

    But the very first LF2XT made by Jeff in 2010 was only a 6x trits in the battery tube, without a 3D tail (never heard about a 6x6 configuration...). A couple of years after he found the way to build and absolutely amazing 3D tail and so he made two "little sixteen's" (10 trits in the battery tube and 6 in the 3D tail) wich I have the honor to own. This opened the door for other flashaholics (like egrep).

    Good job Jeff!

    Likewise completely agreed with you Ramon. I only got two because there are limits to what I can be offered and what I can afford. I'm overwhelmingly grateful for this opportunity to have this wonderful gem. I had a very long night last (and several previous) nights but I wanted to 'bang this out' and I was not only innaccurate, I was incomplete. I've fixed that in my post. Thank you!
