Hi, a while ago I bought a custom 1D Mag with a T6 XM-L and a copper heat-sink here. I have since modded the 2.8A driver to 4.2A and bought some imr 26500s for it. It's pretty bright now. My problem is that it has a Solarforce Masterpiece (Pro-1?) smo reflector. The problem is that this reflector is made for the XR-E led which only a 90° radiance angle (i don't know what else to call it) and the XM-L (I think) has 120°. The reflector is extremely deep. The problem is that if I screw the head all the way down, to get the led into the right place, the beam really sucks. It has normal spill light, a huge corona and a tiny hotspot which does not seem to have a very high intensity. To get the beam to look how it should (big far throwing hotspot) I have to screw the head out quite a bit so that the XM-L is about 5mm behind the reflector. This means I lose a lot of light making my driver mod almost useless.
So my question is what is the best smo reflector for an xm-l that fits in a D-size mag head to get the most throw?
The mag led reflector?
Or should I contact phoenix reflectors?
A reflector from DX (although I couldn't find anything good there)?
Or a different one?
