Thread: Jetbeam tcr 01 is out

  1. #91

    Default

    Even if were a tactical type forward button wih no click I would like it. I wouldnt consider a light this big with no button for instant on. I like to preset the level I want with the ring then turn on with a button. Obviously most of you disagree. The bright side is I won't be competing with you guys for the limited number of lights available.

    $180 at goinggear, no discount allowed. Should be out like the 17th.

    Change the red (dot) to a dot and it becomes a link, if you copy and paste - I try to follow rules.

    Is there any information as to whether this light is going to be numbered?

    It's because each one is smaller than the last. If they made a titanium version of the M2S or the RRT-3, I expect it would be called the TC-R4.

    I agree with your preference for a control ring + a clicky switch. This light is just targeted at a different market niche, that's all.

    I don't believe I claimed you could, but pushing a button in cigar hold seemed more convenient than twisting a head ring. Now that I've had a chance to play with the SWM V10r+, I can see how just having the control ring is a better interface.

    ...Especially compared to the ridiculously stiff tail switch is on the V10r. Add to that the binding issues on the Ti switch cap, and the thin factory clip that came broken at one of the two screw holes, and I went ahead and preordered a Jetbeam TCR-01.

    So it looks like these are still available? Anyone know? I was able to get one yesterday evening from bj or gg but had heard that they were all out? Anyone try today? Curious to see how fast they move.....

    Titanium is expensive, but assuming you find one you really like, you can keep using it basically forever. I've been carrying my TC-R2 for about 15 months and the only noticeable change is the surface is less shiny.

    Could not resist, even though I'm not a twisty fan, I also love the TCR2.

    Oh this is tempting. Just got a v10r Ti+ and taxes are kicking my ass (self-employment has its disadvantages). It looks really lovely and i like the twisty interface. Why do these companies have to keep doing this to me.

    That's exactly what I was thinking. Everytime I buy a new light, thinking it will be my last purchase for a while, they come out with something irresistable. It's easy to resist some of the newer lights that come out since they aren't necessarily brighter or have a better UI than the lights I currently have, but when they bust out a Titanium version like the TCR01 with an unusual UI...wow, I feel my Paypal account dwindling.

    I missed out on the last Jetbeam TCR2 go around...so I may have to pull the trigger on the TCR01

    I cancelled my order for a V10Ti+ so I hope this one is better received.

    I know for a fact the tail switch on this one wont be an issue

    Check the date of delivery that it states. Sometimes its an old tracking number that hasnt been updated yet, it happened to me with a recent package

    LJ uses a strange system that flags your order as delivered when it is shipped. Dunno why...

    Edit: Got my email today as well!
