    I'm in for 2.

    The Preon II is my go to light at work almost every day but have almost lost the light a few times due to the stock clip bending a bit and then the lights just slips out.

    Jason told me he needed 50 people to be interested. I assumed this to mean being able to reasonably expect orders for 50 clips. In this thread I've counted people asking for 27 clips, without including maybes or those people asking for deep carry clips (which I'm not sure is possible or part of the "deal") At least two people on the EDC forums have said that they can't post here but are interested, so I'd take that to 29, but I'm not going to bother Jason with this again until we get closer to the 50 clips he asked for.

    On the issue of deep carry clips. I recognize the value of the request, but a "regular" clip is a simple modification of a design Jason has already done. A deep carry clip would require additional engineering, especially for the clicky and flat tailcaps. It would be nice to see that happen, but that's not what he agreed to when he said I could make this thread. If you guys that are saying "only if it's deep carry" want to contact Jason politely with an inquiry, or if he posts here on the subject, things may change. Otherwise, please let us know if you'd be interested in a regular clip, and keep spreading the word so that this project might happen soon.

    Also, Jason, if you're reading, thanks for listening to your customers!

    Hey folks,

    Keep the interest coming Happy to make the clips if there is enough demand. I'm going to order a Preon after Christmas I imagine it will take a month once the ball gets rolling. If people want Ti clips, then deep carry won't work. The 6/4 Ti can't be bent back on itself without breaking.

    Hey if deep carry is not do-able then a longer/wider clip than what is stock works for me.

    Thanks

    would this be better than the normal clip on my Fenix PD32 UE?. looking for a stronger, better looking clip.
    is this a good one, or is there another one better suited?.



    cheers ya' all...

    From what I've read it doesn't fit. TheTomas measured the Preon at .429" so the Dark Sucks clip would have to be bored out and would leave only .043".

    I'd definitely buy a couple of clips.
    Got 4 Preons and parts for about 3 more.
    Weak clip is really the only thing I don't like about them.

    I can't see how it would be that difficult to ream out the clip to fit?
    I might try it but I have 2 preon and I am just not as crazy about them as I was at first.
    The switch just sucks to me.

    I would be down for one or two depending on price. If its around the price of the linked clip, I'd take one for sure. If its cheaper, two or more!

    The ability to ream it out isn't the problem. The problem is the amount of material left over on the clip is only .043". That's less than 1/16".

    Well I was just commenting on the clip makers assessment of the thing?
    He seemed more concerned about the hole enlargement than the thinness of the remaining material from my read of it.

    The clip that is being talked about here would be for the FourSevens Preon only, not the Fenix PD32 UE.

    The clip on your Fenix is a snap on clip,right?

    These are clearly not a clip on and I don't think there is any place on the Fenix that will take this clip in any way.

    My own Preon is on it's way to me in the mail I wanted to take a look at the light just to make sure it's actually possible to improve on the clip. If the design requires that the width of the ring is too thin then not much can be done.

    I have one of the Peak Eiger clips. Just gotta say that it's awesome! With a little patience, you are able to adjust the tension of the clip from mild, to rip your shirt pocket or somewhere in between. I wouldn't hesitate to say its the little brother of a McGizmo clip. (Well, different family. How bout cousin?) I would certainly take one for a Preon.
    -I have been asked my view of mind control. My view? I would love to be able to control my mind! - Welcome to the Dark Side! Which just also happens to be the Light Side.

    It looks like Jason is keeping an eye on this thread, and doing research on the potential build, so keep spreading the word on this project. Thanks again to everyone showing their interest and to Jason for listening to his customers.

    Looks like we're almost there. Maybe a couple more people?

    Just got my Preon(s) today! I couldn't help it. I got the Ti AA and the black/ti 2xAA The 2xAA makes me wish I was a doctor, or at least a rocket scientist with a pocket protector. I have no idea how I'd actually use it, but it's cool

    Before I go any further, I suppose I'd like to ask what people do or do not like about the current clip. Is it just that people want Ti because it's awesome, or are there known issues about the current clip that I should be designing around? The more feedback the better...I hope this isn't considered hijacking?!

    No hijack at all archer since this thread is all about a better designed clip for the Preon. I use my Preon 2 at work pretty much every day and I've found the clip that comes with the Preon is prone to bending fairly easily. I try to be careful but I've bent it a few times. I'm on my second clip for this Preon. Ti has much better retention especially than the cheap clip that comes with the Preon. I hope you put your name in the hat for a Ti clip as well since the more people who do then the better the chances of it coming a reality.

    I'd prefer a stronger clip, and since I use an all titanium preon, I'd prefer the clip to be titanium as well.

    I'm definitely in for one, maybe two.
