    Seconded. I've been looking for exactly this light - with a 90+ CRI Nichia 219c.

    I would be interested in a simplified BOSS.

    I see there was a new tir P60 drop-in that was realease... just saying there is a big void for single led, multi mode, multi cell drop ins. show the 9P owners some love!

A true work of art. I just wouldn't mind seeing a less expensive option with the same beautiful physical body design.

    We may be able to make such a thing but it may not make sense.

    The v5 driver itself is only a quarter of the cost of the BOSS, so making a BOSS with no actual driver at all would still be $300+. Making it meaningfully cheaper then would require taking out some of the physical details that make BOSS so good/desirable, like the complicated triad tail. After which it won't be BOSS anymore.

    This light we just released is single XPL and about half the cost of a BOSS 35. Which features would you want to add back in?

    if it's not an offering then I would pay a premium for a one off. I'm just looking for a high/ low that's compatible with 2 l-ion cells in my 9P (ice blue, by you). triples are cool and all, but single emitters are the bees knees

    im still hoping for a OR spotter. its seems that the malkoff hound dog super has filled the void surefire left when they discontinued their larger TIR lights but would still like to see what the OR gang could come up with.

    We've had a good response to the new DIP series and can potentially make some larger and more sophisticated to compliment it!

    i wont hold my breath as i know the BOSS lights are your cash cows now; however, i may still bring up the idea every few months or so. did yall ever make more of the DIP engines after the initial batch of 6? ive yet to see a beamshot of those things.

    The scarcity created by BOSS is mostly about who builds the heads and how much time he has. He also builds things like Moddoolar so those things are directly effected. DIP are built by a completely separate person so BOSS has a much smaller impact.

    You can actually see this in the second value of part numbers on the website. Heres the one for Triad: F2-TL-C-Triad-NT. TL makes the BOSS and the Triad so there hasn't been room for both. Meanwhile, anything without a TL is made by someone else so its easier to make at the same time, including DIP.

    Our original DIP batch was over 10 but still inadequate to meet demand. Batch 2 will be much larger and if those sell out batch 3 will be even larger.

    How about one of these in a DIP?

    Synios KW DLMQ31.SG

    or

    Oslon Black Flat

    or

    XHP35HI

    or isn't Cree coming out with some small bright emitter?

    Something with a nice color temperature and tint though.

    a large diameter Fresnel lens would be cool looking

    Any chance we may someday see an option for warmer tints like 3500K or 3200k in the triples? The 4000K hi CRI is where it's at for me right now, but something a little warmer would be a dream/Grail light for me.

    Just dreaming out loud.
