    Nice beam shots. How many lumens is it? I can not read Chinese!

    My TK75 still is one of the best overall torches in regards to Flood/Throw combination. The TK61 still looks nice with the PBI it has!

    EDIT: Is it 1000 Lumens? I read some of the stats in between the Chinese!!

    Thanks "Ven".

    The TK61 is pretty impressive to get that much throw with 1000 lumens for a stock light.

    This may not be a great comparison, but my Olight M3X is 1000 lumens and gets about 603m of throw[SB REVIEW]. It does only use 2 x 18650 batteries and I got it for $89! It is an impressive torch to me!

    My new torch[modded OSTS TN31 mb] is around 900 to 1000 lumens and its beam distance is 1273 meters! So as I have learned from some of the "scientists" on here[!!!], the lumens can be balanced for flood and throw, my TK75 a great example or they can be applied more heavily in one direction than the other.

    But looking at that .gif picture. The TK75 doesn't do a bad job compared with the TK61 and TK76.

    Looks a bit like Fenix's reply to the Armytek Barracuda - see here:

    It will be interesting to see how they stack up against each other.

    I look forward to pics. of this.

    I hope it is SIMILAR in size to the TK75. I would think that it is because according to the "Google" translation it can use the TK75 extender which I already have!

    The M3X is similar to the Armytech Barracuda in regards to "Throw" and batteries[2 X18650].

    This Fenix TK61 will out throw both of them[and should- 4 X 18650] if the specs, are correct.

    The TK61[ cool white version 824m of throw] will out throw the M3X[603m by SB] by 221m.

    TK61 will Out Throw the Barracuda by 163m[This is the median b/w Subwoofer and Selfbuilts specs.] Subwoofer calculated 688m and SB calculated 639m with the "Median" @ 661.

    Edit:"Any grammatical error and I must correct it!!" Type "A" personality,,,,I think there are some others on here who also fit that bill!

    I agree. It is hard to beat the TK-75 for overall balance and performance in its utilization of Flood and Throw. Your only giving up about 100m of throw in comparison to the New TK61 and look how much more flood and overall illumination you get with the TK75.

    It still remains my favorite torch.In addition, the TK75 really is not a bulky light[7 1/4"]compared to many others, some of which still can not out perform it.I use it several times a week for 70+ minutes while walking Capo my Siberian. It would be very, very difficult to do that with a TK70, RC40 or any of the Olight SR95 series lights!

    With all that said, the TK61 still interests me!

    Yea, the TK75 is still a beast
    Will shoot some beamshots this weekend, for my TK76 review. Will make comparison shots with the TK70 and TK75. The TK70 will out-throw them, but you got to love
    the wide-angle of the TK76 -And indeed, if you have to choose between all three of them, the TK75 is still the winner IMO.

    My TK70 was the best Fenix thrower until now, but when I look a the beamshot this light will beat it.
    This is after the TK50 the first real thrower with less lumens than other big TK-lights and a small beam.
    For throwerfans the TK75 and TK70 are to "floody"

    Now Fenix has almost flashlights for every taste and everyone

    I am hoping this TK61 has the same exact setup in regards to "Step Downs" as the TK35 and the TK75!

    The TK35 has a "Timed Step Down" at 25 minutes. The TK75 has a "Timed Step Down" at 20 minutes.Now the good part that not many torches can do! Basically [minus the few second Timed Step Downs] they BOTH can run on MAX for the duration of the battery charge WITHOUT any heat issues detrimental to the torch or the person holding the torch!!
    I have done this dozens of times with both torches!.

    My only other torch that can do this is my Jetbeam BC-40 which has NO step downs and has Two Modes, high at 830 lumens and Low at 130 lumens.

    Most of these torches today, regardless of low output or high output seem to have these Step downs after 1, 3 or 5 minutes. They boast about all these lumens , yet you can not use it on max for the duration of the battery charge!

    So, I hope the TK61 is like the TK35/TK75 and not like the TK51 and the aforementioned torches that fail to sustain max output for the duration of the battery charge!!

    EDIT: What the hell is wrong with me??!!!

    MY M3X [Olight] can sustain max output for the duration of the battery charge! It does NOT have any step down!

    Is Fenix going to actually offer neutral-white, or will they offer cool-white as their 'neutral' option?
    5000K is not ​neutral.

    Got it!! $206.63 U.S. Dollars,,,,that would be about $179.00 at Fenix Outfitters w/ promo code!

    I will absolutely wait for a review to see if it is like the TK35/TK75,BASICALLY MAX Output minus step downs for duration of the battery.......if not, I have NO interest!

    Thanks KJ75/KJ2 for all the info.!

    For us Americans!! That is about 8 1/2" long. The TK75 is 7 1/4" long.

    A good way to categorize the TK61 might be to think of it like this; The TK61 is to the TK75, as the TN31 is to the TN30. Granted, the head is about a centimeter in diameter larger than the TK75. The light is longer as well because the reflector is deeper. The body appears to be close to or the same as the TK75 and TK51.

    I doubt that we'll have any worries about thermal issues with this light simply because of the mass of the head. Based on my experiences with similarly sized, single XM-L/XM-L2 lights, there's no reason that this light should require any thermally monitored step-down like the TK51.

    I like the idea of Fenix coming out with a true throw light and I'm eager to see what happens with it. On paper, it handily beats the TN31 XM-L2 and is basically the throw equal of the Olight SR95UT SBT-90! Wow, a Fenix light with that kind of throw but in a smaller, non-proprietorially powered package.

    Lastly, I've noticed that Fenix is making some of the nicest reflectors these days in this price range. All three of my most recent Fenix lights have better reflectors than their Olight and Nitecore counterparts. It will be neat to see what this thing can do!

    Wouldn't you want to see a review first?? What happens if it steps down after 5/10/15 minutes and heat may be an issue like the TK51?

    I don't really have a problem with a step-down. If it happens, I always can bump it back up. And I like the idea the light protects itself.
    And I bought it online, so I can ship it back within 7 days

    I think Patriot has a good point and will be right. It has a single emitter and massive head so there should not be a thermal issue/step down. The TK75 does not have a thermal step down and it produces 2900 lumens.

    Good luck with it!! Please review it after you get it!!!

    You misread my post!!! I said it does NOT have a "Thermal" step down, NOT timed step down! I have the torch! Minus [timed] step down it can utilize maximum output for the duration of the battery charge.About 62 minutes w/3400 mAh Panasonic cells and I got 2h 54min. of Max run time w/ battery kit!

    I am sorry to use you as an example. I love how some of you guys pick a sentence out of a post to make a point, when your point is totally invalid and incorrect!
