    Dropped my ready made on the flight line today and proceeded to trip over it. got some battle scars now. Funny thing is, its the only flashlight i own that I'm not upset about getting dinged up. Interesting considering its the only "custom"i own.

    Who needs to see the light at the end of the tunnel when you have friends on CPF?

    Your alpha light looks pretty sweet! Any short videos or pics of how effective it is at night?

    Thanks for sharing!

    Is that blue GITD around the emitter?

    Yep, blue GITD...

    I was getting tired of the usual green and a friend gifted me some blue and aqua tape and I love it!

    Each light, which has some space between the emitter and the base of the reflector should have some GITD applied. Most modern emitters like XPG & XML offer this space.

    My Alpha is all blue now as I got a blue cap from Jason as well. Unfortunately, I applied the ice-blue/red trit scheme before I knew that it would be an all blue light, I'd have put ice-blue only trits in the slots. Trits can be removed, but it is a hazardous operation, for the trits themselves and on an aluminum light without much doubt for the slot as well. The red touch is not that bad though...

    Forgive my ignorance but how do you get that blue gitd effect around the emitter? It looks awesome

    Who did the trit work? That is a stunner. I love the reflector.

    You take the o-ring over the lens out, than the lens followed by the reflector and you put some GITD stuff around the (base of the) emitter. Reassemble and enjoy!

    Jason did the trit slots and I installed the trits...

    Jason installs the trits himself. You can check out his blog, or contact him to work something out.

    Where would one get some of the blue GITD to do this?

    Yes! They are all beautifully finished but I think the 'Blasted and Polished' is excellent.

    I did some driver programming for a fellow forum members Alpha series and wanted to show the "moonlight" low mode:



    The quad dies of that MCE look so neat glowing in the boom reflector. Perfect level for navigating through the house at night. Now I need one!

    Thats a great mod! I use moonlight on other lights, but I'm not sure if id like it with the mce. Can you tell how nice the beam actually is in such a low mode?

    Thanks Alex. Yes you can, its very nice when your eyes are night adapted in moderate darkness.

    What is the predicted lumen level of the low mode? What power setting did you program it to?

    It must be a lumen or less, if the camera can focus directly on the emitter and reflector like that.

    I only ask because when I fly at night even .1 and .4 lumens is bright when I'm trying to do my job. And I dont want to blind the pilots when I'm talking to them.

    In that case, you might want to get a dedicated moonlight like an Eiger Sub-Zero, or an infinitely adjustable light with a really low minimum setting, like the Jetbeam TC-R1. They're not customs, but I've generally found that moonlight works better as a separate light (or at least one that always starts on the lowest setting, like the TC-R1). The reason is partly because you can't accidentally leave a dedicated moonlight on the wrong setting and blind everyone, and partly because circuitry that has a wide range of brightness settings tends to show significant inefficiency on the lowest setting. A Pak-Lite will run for a month on its low setting, and an Eiger Sub-Zero can run for a few days on an AAA, but you'll never get anywhere near that efficiency from a moonlight setting on a multi-mode light.

    I can make it always start on low mode also : )

    Jason hooked me up with some blue so I could make my Ready Made a little cooler. I love it! This light is getting a lot more use than I expected it would when I bought it.

    hi - side question.

    could I ask, on his site he mentions that normal cheap LEDs have the blueish red-ish tint and he has the best tints, and LEDS unlike cheaper manufacturers maybe as FENIX with their XM-L T6 3C, and his MCE easily out performs XML.

    I like the MCE in say 4000k Neutral warmish white.

    at the moment i have a PD32UE. would there be a remarkable difference, really in neutral anyway?.

    really like his site.
    thanks.
