    Default Sold: Haiku XML 6V Cheap!

    I have a 2x123 Haiku 6v XML that has been carried and used. Light still looks good though. Typical light Ti carry marks.

    Not seeing enough use so it needs to go.

    Will sell for $400 now $390 (sells for $520 + shipping new)

    USA/PP

    Will ship intl for $10 more, but I assume no risk for postal hiccups.

    First I'll take it gets it.

    Hell of a deal, Brandon!! Should go super speedy. How does it compare to a 3V, beam-wise?

    Beam is the same, 6V is just brighter. This is the brightest light McGizmo makes.

    How would you rate the tint? Cool or neutral? Would you take a guess at the color temp (5000k or 6000k for example)?
    ...and He separated the light from darkness. Check out my lights.

    Hi, I am terrible at guessing Kelvins, LOL.

    It looks just pure white to me, no blue or yellow or green.

    maybe 5500K???

    Sounds like a winner! I've had 6V McG's before, but never in the Haiku genre. I've always loved the way the 2x123 McClicky pak feels in the hand, so this could be a true user light for me. Just glad Brandon offered it up at a bargain or I might never have tried it. Any time you can snag a titanium McGizmo for under $400 you feel like you just robbed the little old lady down the street!

    Troy,

    Now that you have a nice 6V Haiku XML, feel free to sell me your 1 x 123 Haiku XML. I'll give it a nice home.

    ***FALSE ADVERTISING ALERT***

    Brandon sold me this light and it's not as advertised. He said it was in user condition with light carrying marks. No sir. Absolutely FALSE. It is virtually MINT. I can't find ANY evidence of usage. What the heck??

    Thanks bro - I LOVE it!

    Well, clearly you have no use for it then. I'll give you $350 for it, just to get it off your hands.
