Thread: Matt... you did it!

  1. #1

    Default Matt... you did it!

    I just received a custom light today that Matt built for me and it is the bomb!

    I don't have any numbers to brag about but this thing has to pump out at least 4000 lumen... probably more... and believe it or not, it's pocket sized.

    Thanks, Matt! And thanks to Ven for recommending the vestureofblood

    Coming right up!

    I mean it's not small, but it fits in my pocket just fine. I seriously think it might be in the 4500 lumen neighborhood... it lights up my house like some of my big flood lights. Maybe Matt can answered that, if he measured it before mailing.

    I'm going to try to take a pic of how it lights up my house, but it's very misty tonight because of more rain we got this afternoon. If I can't get it I'll get it soon and post it. It's crazy bright!

    Ok these pics are terrible... my LG G5 would not focus for some reason. It's very dark out.

    This first pic is of a modified Surefire Z2 P60 quad. Now please understand that this is not a fair comparison... the Z2 is a one 18650 light (and I love this Surefire fyi), while Matt's custom light holds 2 of the same cell. But I just wanted to show the difference.

    EDIT: I re-took the pics... they're much better now.







    EDIT #2: I accidentally backed up more away from the house when I re-took the second pic, so it would look even brighter.

    You know Ven, I'm not sure.(LOL) Matt and I had almost 20 email exchanges trying to decide so there may have been some confusion.

    I believe this is the drop in he used...


    ^^Don't be fooled by the 3000+ description. I guarantee the light he built produces considerably more than that.

    Thanks, bro. All credit goes to Matt.

    Yes, good morning Ven. You didn't get much sleep... seems like we were talking just a few hours ago.

    Hey Wimmer21,
    Awesome light-it is hard to believe that power is coming from that light, but I have seen enough of your posts I have no doubt! Congrats to Matt for lumen magic and to you for scoring awesomeness in an aluminum tube....

    Default Re: Matt... you did it!

    Thanks Crazyeddie. Yeah my lumen claims are merely a guess, and I could be over celebrating this light, but all I know is it's crazybright. Lol

    Oh and not for nothing, but I'm not easily impressed.

    Yes amazing drop in, depending on the cell be it 16340x 2/18350x2/18650x2/26650x2 will give more output due to less sag from the bigger cells. You need a 26650 host now wimmer

    Other than amazing output , it's the beam/tint that gets me, just a wall of light! Love it!!

    Yes very tired wimmer , first aid course and struggling keeping eyes open =not good

    Haha I'm sticking with solar powered lights until I learn not to touch the stove when mom's cooking. Two or 3 more times and I should be cured.

    Absolutely. And thanks for turning me on to the 4000k to 5000k tints. I've learned much from you, sir

    Welcome and anytime steve, its always tough tbh as everyone is different, cool tints are(no pun intended) cool, certainly for throwers, but all things closer up and floody(like p60s and EDC types) the 4000-5000k really shines(pun intended this time)for making colours pop. When you get bored and its dark, take a 6500k light and a 4000 or even 5000k light out, Go on a little hunt for colours, see the difference and notice how easier it is on the eyes.............less strain etc. Trouble is though, going back to cool is hard and becomes less frequent. Thats part of the reason i mentioned early on and knowing how many lights your getting. I find 5000k a perfect happy medium, this way you lessen the risk of having lots of 6500k cold lights sat on the side due to enjoying the slightly warmer tints.]

    Glad happy

    All I know I have learned from Vinh and ven. I get no credit. Without these 2 guys I would still have the ld plastic light I used for 1.99 from the grocery store 30 years ago. Yes I do still have it. But it needs batteries.

    Alex I had to go back and check my records. I paid $285 shipped. Matt offered some less costly options (in regards to body, etc.) that I believe would've equated to roughly the same output. He'll work with you.
