Thread: Final edition three stage Aeon

  1. #1

    Default Final edition three stage Aeon

    Enrique has agreed to make one final run of the Aeon. It will be Ti, three stage twisty with a new moonlight low. Price will be close to $400.

    Here is sign up and more details:

    Why didn't Enrique start a thread about this here?

    It sounds good but I'd be interested to hear from him on this as he has been silent thus far.

    I had asked him as a favor for my readers. He and I communicated over email and the link will serve as the interest list.

    nbp: Tony from EDC Commentary asked me if I would please do another run of Aeons as a last batch, and I told him that if he found enough interest in it that I'd be willing to look into it when I have some time in a month or so - his post is legitimate, though it probably would have been more appropriate in a different forum since nothing is actually being sold. I'm a little too busy to be running a thread right now due to responsibilities in my "non-flashlight" life, but I will poke in here every couple of days and answer any questions, or you can e-mail me at vcc@muyshondt.net.

    beach honda: No on the rechargeables.

    Also, in general I don't like locking myself into specific courses of action since plans can and sometimes do change. I didn't name this the "Final Edition", though I don't really have plans to continue with the Aeon afterwards, so I guess it's not technically incorrect at present. Point being - buy the light because you like what's being offered as opposed to some idea of exclusivity or otherwise.

    Take care folks.

    Enrique

    "Final Edition" was my name, which I guess I should have run by Enrique first. It came about after about thirty people emailed me asking if we could get together to do order a "final edition" of an Aeon. Its Enrique's light and his design, so he should call it whatever he wants. I apologize if I stepped on toes. Also, if this is in the wrong place, mods, please let me know.

    Either way, a three stage Aeon, final edition or not, will be pretty awesome.

    Whatever, as might be expected, "I'm in" or "I'm INterested"---depending on the reality of this, I want to be on the list should one develop followed by a light!

    Absolutely, I'll take one. It will be a close-to-perfect EDC.

    Enrique,

    Is there a mistake on everydaycommentary ? Will you really use an XP-E instead of the XR-E ? (I.E. no more rigny beam ?)

    Hi Tony,
    I often visit your site, but I've never posted there, so I hope that it's ok to express my interest here.

    I'm a big fan of Enrique's work, and I'd love to get one of these. I'd like to have more clarification on the specs,
    etc., whenever Enrique has time to post, but in any case, I'm 99% sure I want in!

    With this and the Orca coming (sooner than later, I hope!) I may break the wallet, but I'm sure it'll be worth it

    I've always dreamed of a floodier an brighter Aeon. Muyshondt work is AAA+++ but this led is completely outdated.

    Enrique. PLEASE, at least try a proto with a Nichia 219 high-CRI... it might convince you...

    derfyled: Sorry, that's simply not in the cards unfortunately. I got asked to do another batch of Aeons before I retired them; I do not have the time to spend months redesigning and testing the entire optical and mechanical system of the head at this time; If I did it would be an Aeon Mk. II or otherwise, which this isn't. This is basically a last call for folks who wanted an Aeon and missed out, and with a nice addition to the driver.

    New lights with new LEDs, features, or otherwise will come at some point in the future when I have the time to test and release them, but that's a way's off and not the point of this batch.

    Oh I am SO SO in. My Aeon has been in my pocket daily for years, and this one will be a welcome addition, even if I have to sell something (things) to get in on it.

    Edit: For some reason that site is blocked for me. I am willing to commit right now to this. Any other way to get my name on the list? Feel free to PM.

    Grade 2 like the old ones or 6/4 like the Mako?

    Definitely interested, but I'd be in for sure if the LED was going to be updated.

    It won't be updated, Enrique just made that clear in his post. I don't mind the current LED, it's a very nice beam and tint, one of the things I love about my Aeon.

    Too bad the LED won't be updated. My XPG Aeon is a worthwhile improvement.

    I understood his post, I was just stating my opinion.

    Thumbs up Re: Final edition three stage Aeon

    I´m absolutely in! Im looking for an Aeon since a couple of weeks, and this seems to be a nice possibility to get one. And with a three level output it would be just perfect! I hope that this project will be realized...

    Keep watching the site. If we hit the 74 mark (Enrique needs 75, and I am obviously a go) by mid-July this will happen. If we reach that mark, I will announce information on what to do next.

    If you could, comment on the post with an "I'm in" or some other similar phrase that way I don't double count folks here and there. Thanks. Here is the post:

    http://www.everydaycommentary.com/20...-sign-ups.html

    All you have to do is log in with a Google account and comment. If you don't have a Google account it takes about 5 seconds to get one.

    Let's hope this happens. I love that little booger and a three stage version would be my absolute dream light.
