    Default Sun Drop and XML

    Anyone have a Sun Drop and an XML? And, if so what do you think of it?

    To to the experts, would this be a good combination?

    Thanks,

    RL

    Yes, not my favorite combo.

    Beamshape is less pleasing to me than with any of the Nichia choices or the XP-G type emitters.

    I also even have a custom MC-E light engine that I prefer over the XM-L for the SunDrop.

    XM-L2 will still be highest output, though.

    Had it. Hated it. Don't do it. If you like square beams, it is ok.

    I still like my old Nichia 083B, but the 119 is an excellent modern choice
