As the holiday season approaches I've been looking over some past requests. I think maybe it's time to bust out the Titanium Alpha ICE. What do you think?
Time is of the essence. These will be machined at Hirsch Machine, the same company that makes the ready made lights. Why? Volume. My equipment isn't set up for Ti and I'd like to make 50-100 lights. The catch is that I have to have a metal company custom make the tube used for the body of the light. Their minimum order is 200 feet and that comes out to about $30 a foot...so you do the math and keep in mind there is still the head and tailcap's worth of titanium to go.
With enough interest this feeler will turn into a pre-order. This is not the pre order. However, when that happens, I'll need each person to pony up about $200 each to reserve a light. Final cost should be around $500-$600. Please post here if you like the idea of a Ti Alpha ICE and/or if you'd be willing to put down a $200 deposit. I'll need deposits from a minimum of 30 people to pay for the cost of having custom tubing manufactured.
The Pre-Order will begin on Sept 1 and only last for 7 days. At that point I need to set things in motion because I'd like to start delivering lights before the end of the year. No promises, but that's the goal. Let the games begin
