    Nice pictures (especially the switches)!
    Here is a list of my lights.

    This little beauty showed up for me today. Only one of these were made! Unfortunately, the ride was a bit bumpy and one of the trits was worse for the wear, but the tailcap will be back to Tain for some TLC soon.

    Stunning lights and pictures, Dave. Wow, that new lens of yours is sharp!
    The bead-blasted light is truly a one-of-a-kind for this magnificent series.

    Man. All those combat grip hyperluxes look soooo good.
    Who needs to see the light at the end of the tunnel when you have friends on CPF?

    Very nice pictures as well Daniel! I especially like the first two. The colors of the trits really seem to pop!

    Thanks to Tain for the AWESOME lead and weekly updates.
    And thanks to Chris Ogaz for being a genius flashlight designer .






    Those light look amazing.
    How do the beams of the xm-l and osram smt versions compare? Which one is brighter? Which one throws further (especially with the throwier reflector)? I would love to see some comparison beamshots, also with other lights.

    The beams are actually pretty similar but I would say the Ostar has a little more throw. I also like the tint fro the Ostar a little better.
    I'll try to get some beam shots done ASAP

    Thanks a lot The smt is one of the rarest leds. These are basically the only lights that use it. I can't wait for them. I hope you can do some outdoor shots

    Just to clarify, the SMT L.Es were not part of the TAIN Hyperlux run and were not provided with them.
    They are separate L.Es that came with a different series of lights made by someone else.
    They happen to fit the Hyperlux lights as the other series was also based on the TNC Hyperlux design.

    Therefore beamshots or discussions about the SMT don't really belong here and I'd appreciate it if they could be discussed in another thread or via PM.

    For the record, the SMT is not as efficient as the XM-L and won't provide as much overall output for the same power consumption.

    Thanks but no need to apologise. Its completely understandable that the picture showing that driver would arouse curiosity.

    Thanks.

    Its actually considerably beefier than the standard tails (in order to accommodate the 3 large tritium vials)
    The precision of the milling is exemplary.

    Indeed! I am amazed at the tolerances required to add the outer trits and still have some titanium left on the outside.

    Shouldn't this light have been called a Titainium Hyperlux!

    Mostly at the urging of easilyled (although who doesn't love looking at these beauties? ), here are a few more pictures of my bead-blasted Hyperlux after being restored to full health.




    This shot gives a good example of how small you can make the depth-of-field in a picture. I was intentionally
    focusing on the switch, and you can see that the outer knurling is slightly out of focus.



    Taking a rest atop a TNC bead-blasted aluminum 26650 light.



    This is one of my favorite pictures of late as it represents a number of very talented builders. We have Jeff Hanko,
    Tain (TNC tribute), Steve Ku and TNC.

    They are indeed beautiful lights. There was only a very small run of these lights made though. Your only chance to purchase one would be used if one of the existing owners decided to sell one.

    It's been said over and over, but it's worth repeating, the 3 piece Hyperlux w/ combat grip is head and shoulders above any other Ti light ever made. The design is timeless like a Lamborghini, it's like Chagall's "cow over the moon" Iconic and always a please just to marvel at.

    Unfortunately not. All of my Tain lights (and I have quite a few) will almost certainly be a permanent part of my collection. The Titanium Hyperlux in particular (along with the Thud 26650) are in my top 10 list of favorite lights I own.

    I wish you luck in your quest to find one of these beauties.

    As an old retired machine shop teacher I can tell you right now, that is the best knurling I have ever seen and in Ti to. IMHO knurling is one of those machine operations that is more art than science. One of those things you have to hold your mouth right to get done correctly. This guy is holding his mouth right!

    I've always felt (and I've seen many similar posts) that Tain's knurling is outstanding. I like the quality of the work, as well as how he uses it artistically in his designs.
