    I don't really like the standard pre-order model, nor managing a list of "tentatively interested" parties, so I’m going to try something different and see how it goes.

    You can reserve a light in advance by sending $50 via PayPal to payments@muyshondt.net with the Subject Line “Mako Reservation”. Once the lights are ready to ship I will contact you individually for the balance; any lights not reserved prior to the completion of the project will be sold through this thread until the stock is depleted.

    To anyone who reserves a Mako I will also extend a $25 discount and free shipping to an Aeon purchase – simply send a PayPal payment for $100 (normally $125) to the same address as above with the subject “Aeon-Mako Order”. Aeons typically ship out in 2-3 weeks, and only natural hardcoat ones are available (See www.muyshondt.net/aeon.shtml for more information on the Aeon).

    If you have any questions at all please don’t hesitate to ask in the thread, or send me an e-mail at vcc@muyshondt.net
    Kestrel: About 1/3 are currently claimed. I'll put in another milestone marker at around 50 pieces.

    Thanks folks.

    i'm just fastest on the trigger: if since June you checked three times daily for any new threads by Endeavour, you might have been first too. one has got to be quick around here!!!!

    Count me in.

    Paypal sent for both. This is cool, I was thinking I'd like to grab an extra Aeon, while they can still be had.

    Thanks.

    A few questions:
    • Would there be an estimate of the color temperature for this 5mm LED?
    • IIRC, nbp had guessed outputs of ~1 lumen and ~5 lumens based on the drive levels, would this be about right?
    • In coyote's thread, Enrique posted that there was a chance of a different emitter for a small subset of the production run, will this still be the case or will all 75 have the standard emitter?
    • Is there any chance of custom finishes like what were done with a small number of the original Mako's?
    Thanks,

    I want one if it is somewhere in the ballpark of 5000K. If it is I will place my reservations immediately.

    Kestrel: The original Mako Flood was probably around 9000K. I have the LEDs on order and will do a few minor tests and post some side-by-side comparisons of beams and colors next week.

    I don't know what the total light output would be in lumens; the parts are rated in millicandela, which is a fairly ambiguous rating that decreases as the viewing angle of the LED increases. The LED is driven at 20mA and 6mA, and the efficiency curves for it are non-linear - at 20mA you get the full 8600mcd output, and at 6mA you'd be seeing about 1/3rd of that. This is further complicated by a non-linear response to light of the human eye, so the perceived brightness change is fairly small (though the savings in battery life are quite good).

    I typically tend to play around with a small handful of lights, be it LEDs or finishes, after a run is completed, but I am not taking reservations on anything in particular for that - those tend to be one-offs (much like the original five flood Makos were) - It wasn't my intention by mentioning that to add fuel to any uncertainty. . This run is for Flood Makos.

    Half of the run is currently claimed.

    Take care,

    Enrique

    Thanks for this info, I'm looking forward to any comparisions you might be able to do.

    That's cool, I hope my question didn't add any uncertainty to this sale thread. Best regards,

    Thanks for the welcome.
    After ready a few days searching and redign the forums, I have come to the conclusion that a good reliable EDC is something small that you shouldntt worry about. As a gear junkie, I love the latest and greatest, but reading about possible hazards of lithium ion rcr123 and 18650 has me worried. The Mako sort of fits the bill as a "cool" everyday EDC.
