Thread: Malkoff M61SHO

  1. #1

    Default Malkoff M61SHO

    Just got an email this new dropin is ready to go--

    http://www.malkoffdevices.com/shop/m...off-p-139.html

    Looks to be another great light from Gene!

    And just like that, another Malkoff is on its way. My poor, poor wallet.

    In on four! These things sure get pricey after awhile.

    i'm hoping there's a turn-key with this setup

    I am so stoked. 450 lumens out of a Malkoff that doesn't require 3 cells! And since the reflector has likely not been redesigned, we get to see everyone's predictions about the beam angle pan out. Some think it will be throwier, some think it will be floodier, etc. Now we can actually compare with a well known (and well loved) beam profile.

    Does anyone know which tint these will be?

    Me too. I picked up one of the regular M61's (blemished) to go with it. I just couldn't help myself.

    I'm curious to see how the M61SHO compares to the Fury.

    Wonder if Ford gave the a-ok to use the designation SHO {Super High Output}

    Maybe if the name started off with Taurus then they would have to, but I wouldn't think SHO is a moniker owned by Ford.

    Anyways. Wow. XPG2 already out. 450 OTF lumens. Pretty nice!!!
    Who needs to see the light at the end of the tunnel when you have friends on CPF?

    Darn! I shouldn't have waited. There were 10 available when I first looked. Now zero.

    Anyone know how many were made for this run? There were 10 available when I went to order mine.

    Same here.

    It's not going to be enough of an increase to really notice. Your batteries are going to die faster. That's about it. If Gene wants to increase sales, start putting some modes in these things.

    I had one in my cart when there was 11, but decided to be good until the beamshots came in. I'm wondering if it will be floody like an M91, or be like a M61 with a brighter hotspot.

    I noticed when this came out, the M61HO went on sale (website is down right now.)

    I had a custom XPE M61 made a while back. The XPE has a tighter beam angle than the XPG. My initial thoughts is that it would be a slightly more throwy M61. Didnt really work out that way. The spill beam ended up being brighter than normal, with the typical M61 hotspot. No donut issues or artifacts what so ever with the beam. My predictions is that a M61SHO with the XP-G2 will be a slightly more floody M61. The 175 extra lumens will be noticed and may give more throw just because of the extra brute force lumens. I hope Im wrong. A 450 lumen Malkoff P60 thrower would be a welcome addition to my collection.

    To each their own. This is why I won't buy any more. There are only so many needs for a single output light, and those are covered. What I would like is a Malkoff based light that I can edc. This doesn't exist yet precisely because they are only single output.

    Even a resistor ring made for a Valiant style head would be sufficient, but this doesn't exist either. He won't even make a high/low ring for the M31 models. My 2 duty lights have malkoffs. That's all need them for until he adds modes. All my money is going to Zebralight lately.

    Very well said! I feel the exact same way. I had an original MD2 with hi/low ring loaded with a M61w (3700k). I loved it but even two modes were not enough for me. All of my money is also going to Zebralight lately.
    This is my signature. They're many like it but this one is mine..

    450 lumens?! Pretty cool. Love to see this in an optic. In a M60 flood it would be similar to the MCE in terms of output but with twice the runtime. In the M60 with the 8 degree optic the throw would be awesome.

    I have a M91 in a stretched 9P and while I'm really impressed with the output I prefer the M61L better. Even that one is too bright in most circumstances. But then again if I can pick one up cheap like I did my M91 I will.

    Could somebody post a beamshot? I'm dying to see one. It would be greatly appreciated.
