Thread: Differences between TRI-EDC and SST-50 lights

    Default Differences between TRI-EDC and SST-50 lights

    Hi everyone

    New to Mac's lights, don't know very much about them except I NEED ONE!

    I'm having trouble deciding if I want the TRI-EDC or SST-50 version of the light. Which is the more favored and why? I'm looking for one that puts out a LOT of lumens, and has decent throw.

    Thanks for your time!

    If throw is what you want, I would suggest the xm-l. I may be wrong but I don't think the sst-50 version is available anymore. The tri-edc is an amazing light when it comes to flood.

    Have both and loved them equally...SST-50 definitely have more throw and a more pronounced hotspot while the triple have a beautiful floody beam

    Get the Tri-EDC. I have both, but for one, not a difficult choice, the Tri all day long.

    Does Mac build the tri-edc with a triple xpe? I have an Oveready triple xpe neutral module and I just love the tighter beam pattern and tint. It's almost perfect and would be really nice on a tri-edc.
    Who needs to see the light at the end of the tunnel when you have friends on CPF?

    Yes, he does. But, it's a special request I believe.

    I sold my triple XP-G, but kept my SST-50 4500K 2.8A......

    Now - a triple XP-E in neutral - that would really rock...., I would have a hard time deciding.
