    Ordered a LR+ to Macau about a week ago and I'm wondering if it's been shipped yet. I have been itching to get my hands on this light

    Not yet. Give me till Thursday. If it's not sent by then than sick the dogs on me. Been making a few last minute "adjustments" to the last batch of LR+. Beneficial ones.

    No worries I know you are busy and I'm glad to hear that these lights are getting even more tweaks before heading out.

    One last question, is the LR+ upgradeable to the the Enthusiast model you are releasing later on?

    Sweet! Take your time with mine...I like beneficial adjustments, especially necessary ones.

    saabluster,

    Thanks for keeping us posted on the process. I recently ordered the LR+ so I am guessing my order may be included in this batch. I really like beneficial adjustments and can't wait for the light!

    i hope you tweaked mine before you shipped it out yesterday. Will the 90k lux edc thats coming soon be neutral as well?

    I'm pretty sure both of yours are covered. The ones with the adjustment are the ones that have or will be shipped this week.

    Mine will therefore be more extra special than Barbarian's of course.

    As long as mine is MORE special than Barbarian and TEEJ than I will be fine

    I received the shipping notification on Tuesday of this week but it has not shown any actual movement. So i'm guessing you printed out the shipping label, but are tweaking mine before shipment

    My order was for one of the last 3 LR+ you had left on the website. I'm in TX as well so the trip should be a short one.

    If my LR+ hits 90cd I won't tell anyone

    I had # 3 and then backed out to check a couple of things. When I cam back there was only 2 left so I figured I'd better jump.
    I also ordered Sky Ray S-R5 with an XM-L T6 just to have some spare parts.

    The plain LR I had was able to show me stuff ~ 500 meters away.

    The LR+ should be able to go even further.

    I just got my LR+ today. Can't wait for it to get dark outside, do you know if mine is the 72k or was I lucky enough to get one of the extra special ones? I will post my review/feedback after I have had a chance to play around with this thing. Thanks, Joe

    Joe,

    The Deft EDC LR+ are rated at 72K cd. The members including myself who are still waiting for our LR+'s will more than likely receive the same rating as you have - 72K cd. Considering that's what we paid for and that is the expectation I am fine with that.

    We have just been having fun or maybe dreaming that the "last minute adjustments" may tweak even more throw and/or lux out of the lights.

    We can dream can't we?

    DEFT edc LR (NOT +)

    The above were taken on a hazy night, but the beam is visible on the transmission tower across the lake 500 meters away.

    I was using a crappy hand held point and shoot, before I figured out how to use the timer to take the pic, etc...so its a really grainy/crappy set of pics. In real life, you could see it all a lot sharper.


    For comparison:


    SR90 at same tower


    SR90 at same tower with timed shutter release/closer zoom

    Were you shining your LR from the NJ upper bay across to the NY side?

    Draven451 you didn't have to pay extra for the 100K cd adjustment?

    Guilty as charged. I expected to get them out that day but I severely misjudged how much time I had that day and how much work I had getting them all prepared.

    That's a good attitude to have. That said all the lights in this last batch should be over the normal LR+ spec. With the latest adjustment I have been getting typical performance of about 76Kcd. Had a couple get to 80Kcd. And no I don't know which ones.

    There you have it folks. We have a member of our community who actively contributes and participates on this board and shares his knowledge freely. Who has consistently pushed the boundaries capable for achieving the highest lux in a small form factor edc light . If that was not enough he is trying to squeeze even more out of his lights that he is offering us!

    All I can say is Bravo for tirelessly striving to perfect your craft and fine tune your lights while offering our community an exceptional value and the best lights on the market bar none!

    We are the humble stewards of your lights and hope we can handle them with the care and respect they deserve ~*
