    Oh no ILF, I am still waiting for my aspheric Dereelight DBS to arrive. It seems like a lifetime ago, I hope it arrives soon with no problems.

    Well I hope they look at the light before they ship the ones out to you guys. I'm here to tell you that a blind man would have seen this big nick and the one beside it behind the head.

    Hi troelskc

    Im a little confused. When I zoom in on pic number two, the flashlight looks long, thin, and silver, it does not look like a dbs ?

    I dumped it in a beach umbrella stand, it fit nice and snug for the shot. Had a hard time extracting it again though.

    The threads of rear 18650 extender tube are bad too. I'm not very happy on quality of this light. I'd give it about a C.

    How about when you focus it then fire it up? Impressed?

    Anyone have a picture of the DBS with 18650 extension, in hand, so as to see the size?

    Thanks

    Here you go. This is with the aspherical lens, it's a little bit larger on the head.

    Are you guys ordering these from China? Did you know these are in stock from a US distributor? I ordered a DBS-T and an aspherical EZ900 and they arrived in pristine condition in about 2 days... I've recently learned the hard way that its a no-no to link to vendor sites, so I guess I can't tell you where I got mine from but I'm sure you should be able to find them (without going to China )...

    Up close and say only about 5 inches from a wall this light isn't that impressive compared to my higher lumen flashlights. But when you back up about 5 or 6 feet this light will smoke all of my other LED flashlights. It's not even dark here yet but it is overcast and I can see the beem already outside. I can already tell this thing is going to be super thrower. I'll show you guys some pictures later even though this one is going back. I can shine this light around 400yds behind my house.

    And to be fair I would give the quality B-. The problem with the tailcap getting started is due to the double o-rings on the back. They are to flimsy and the back one spins out of the gap. If mine wasn't nicked up, I might be more likely to grade it a B+.

    You don't need to link to 'em but you could just write the name.

    I bought mine directly from Dereelight (Hong Kong).

    Guys I got my new Crelant 7G5 in the mail today. And it looks even brighter up close than the M3X now. Don't know if it will out throw the M3X yet, but look at this picture on the wall at little over 20 ft. That's the Dereelight DBS V3 XR-E R2 3SM aspherical lens light on top of the Crelant 7G5. Now that is bad right there.

    Lol at the hotspot over the crelant. There really is no comparison. All the usual xml suspects cant touch the dbs for throw, not even close. The dbs is in another league. Period.

    I'm glad you got your Crelant 7G5. If you get a chance please could you take some lux measurements. Maybe we can finally who is the king of single XM-L throw. I think 2100 said he's 7G5 was a little better before it was changed to T6.

    If any others who have both, please could you chime in with your lux readings and findings etc. This one has been on my mind for a long time.

    You got spare O ring change them or swap position and read my post. They usually come lubed with silicone grease and every part is loosened so U need to reassemble an properly lube it...

    This is modular flashlight and that is different from classic non modular flashlight...

    Well I can already tell that this Dereelight ain't going to out throw my big halogen spotlight from just looking at it even though it is raining. But this ain't an easy beam to beat.

    I also ordered the DBS V3 along with an extender and aspheric head from the Dereelight website. It has been a little over a week which is alright, but I was wondering if anyone with experience knows how long the shipping from there normally takes?
