    Arrow SOLD OUT: Five Shorty Bodies and one complete shorty

    Hi folks,

    I made a few shorty bodies in my last run. Works with 16340 or 18350 size batteries. You MUST use IMR batteries. I don't stock either of these batteries or have any for sale. The price does include a delrin reducing sleeve for the 16340s.

    These are first come first serve and intended for existing Alpha owners or people who want to purchase a new Alpha and an additional shorty body. The complete light in the photo is stone washed and is the same price as a standard Alpha.

    How this works:

    These are not available through my website. Order is determined by your "I'll take it" on this thread, then you'll have a "reasonable" amount of time to send payment before your spot is released to the next person...say 48 hours? Please send paypal to jason@darksucks.com.
    • Stone washed shorty (light only): $325
    • Shorty body + delrin sleve: $50
    • USPS Priority shipping: $6.00 (CONUS), $12 Canada/Mexico, $16 everywhere else

    Thanks and let me know if you have any questions!

    Aww I missed them.
    I hope that there will be another batch of Shorty Bodies sometimes in the future.

    And by the way hat is the overall length of the Alpha with a shorty Body?

    Hey ore I just measured my Shorty alpha. The overall length is 4.5 inches, and the overall weight with battery is 4 3/4 ounces. Hope that helps

    The shorty makes the light amazing. Perfect EDC Size

    I am bumping this thread to say that I would be interested in a shorty body as well if another run were to occur, or if someone wants to sell one, or a complete shorty light

    Thanks for the bump I actually have a batch of shorty bodies that will be released for sale in the next couple weeks. Complete lights are "special order only" items

    Put me down for one of those shorties, por favor.

    The only disadvantage is the short run time on high I suppose. Oh, well, they're rechargeable.

    I love my shorty, as said it is a perfect EDC size. It just feels perfect in the hand....another great job
    Got a great set with a full and short version now, thanks Jason!

    And as per your blog...if you decide to go with a AAA incarnation, im already in for one!

    I have had a lot of disappointments with some other lights...and huge, ongoing waits with other customs I have ordered...but all your products have been superb, exceeding all my expectations but mainly your service, providing info, blogs, videos and even posts on here, just goes above and beyond anyone else...and it really makes the difference when buying a custom etc...you can get excited about it and know what's going on, rather than just waiting in the dark!

    So I can see my self as being a loyal customer, anxiously awaiting new products and innovations from you. I am sure a lot on here will be the same

    I should have 10 of each finish so I don't expect to run out immediately.

    You'd be surprised.

    I'll have a shorty body in stone-washed finish, please.

    Not sure if any of this news interests you, but last month Jason mentioned in his blog that he has the following three projects slated for 2013:

    1. A "AAA" sized light with the Nichia 219 high CRI LED.
    2. A pen based around the Montblanc Fineliner and rollerball cartridge.
    3. The last one is still a secret...lighting related...but not a flashlight.

    News of a AAA light is music to my ears, I've always wanted a Dark Sucks' light, but the Alpha is just too big for me. Let's hope this comes to fruition soon!

    Hi folks,

    These should be available on or around Jan 14th. Please remember that complete shorty lights are "special order" only. These are only bodies for existing 18650 lights.

    I'll post here but the "official" way to get notified is by following my blog. You'll see a sign up for my mailing list on that page as well, which will "push" blog posts to your email. Cool right? Things are always posted to the blog first, partly because if I want to post any photos on CPF, they have to be hosted somewhere first...like on my blog.

    Cheers,

    Jason
