So far to date, the Reflector based King of throw has been the SR90 Intimidator, at 110K to 125K lux based on various reports. I had one at one time, what I was intimidated the most by is its size, it's freakin HUGE .
So I set out to build a powerful yet compact XML mag to beat the throw of SR90 intimidator, using reflector not Aspheric lens. This not your average XRE R2 pin spot thrower, it's got power too, estimated about ~1300 lumens @ 4.2Amp
The host is a Mag 2D to 1D Cut down by Human Lathe method mated with DX Turbo shower head previously described here:
Under the carbon fiber neck, is a big chunk of Copper heat sink recessed to mated with DX 3" SMO reflector. The reflector bottom is trimmed a bit to go inside the neck.
The Reflector fits loose, So I made a centering ring ( the blue ring), which is made out of 73mmOD-66mmID Hub centric ring from after market Car wheels (Leftover parts from my previous hobby)
The Front window is 73mm UCL glass from flashlightlens.com. A again I had to make a centering ring for the glass window.
XML-U2 on 20mm cutter star mounted on Copper heat sink.
Driven by 4.2Amp 3 mode 7135 based DIY driver (Shinning beam 3-mode 8x7135 2.8A + 4 extra 7135 1.4A slave)
More info on wiring more 7135 boards in parallel to the 8x7135/3 mode board:

In door shoot out:
left----------- Mag 1C Deep Rebel SMO, XML T5 Neutral 2.8A Max.
Middle-------- Mag 1D 3" DX SMO, XML U2, 4.2A max
Right--------- SSK-33 35W/28W HID HA III
The following beam shots are manual exposure, ISO 200, 1/50 of sec. 10 meters.
Low exposure were used to avoid over-exposure to show spot intensity differences.
XML T5 Neutral 2.8A (~930 lumens) in Mag Rebel SMO: 41,000 lux @ 1 meter
XML U2, 4.2A (~1300 lumens) in 3" DX SMO: 127,000 lux @ 1 meter
SSK-33 HID at 35W(~3500 lumens) : 135,000 ,lux@ 1 meter
