Thread: v5 Triple BOSS Flashlight (Bright Output Small Size)

    Zirconium is a metal that forms a black oxide layer especially when heat treated. The oxide layer is super tough and will almost certainly hold up even better than type III mil spec anodizing.

    Update

    these 219c are from the same reel as all 219c this winter, as reviewed here
    https://www.facebook.com/groups/cont...9594531886351/

    error in line 3, black heads are 219 not XPL. correct line:
    Satin Black 7075 219c 4000k + red (quality 2 heads)

    quality 1 bodies are available here
    https://www.oveready.com/flashlight/boss-bodies/

    red is more popular than amber. we work to make amber available with every round but december logistics got in the way. the next releases will have ambers intended for these rounds, creating greater than normal amber availability over the next few releases, including more titanium

    titanium is our primary focus this/next month. we have one more aluminum release this winter. finish and eta are not yet confirmed

    Does "quality 2 heads" mean cosmetic blemishes?

    yes. Our scale goes like so:

    1 - normal
    2 - requires inspection with good lighting
    3 - noticeable without looking for it
    4 - distracting

    “Seconds” sound more like general production items.... “blems” fall into categories 3 and 4 being unacceptable.... I applaud publication of the scale. 🏻🏻🏻

    Has anyone tested the thermal stepdown on the titanium lights vs the 7075 lights? I'm curious to know if one will stepdown before the other.

    Do you know if you're going to have any Titanium XPL-HI Amber light? If not I'm going to go for a 4000k Hi and Red titanium light.

    Other than three cut circles into body, are the Boss lights serialized, laser etched, or otherwise marked ID for insurance or claiming stolen property?
    Are any Oveready products laser etched with identification?

    The serial number for the Boss head can be found by entering the program mode "2-2-2" and then counting the sequence of the flashes. Those numbers can be entered here http://www.lux-rc.com/content/serials/ for the specifics. It's a lot easier than it sounds

    Here you go..... 291c Hi CRI 4000k on the left and XP-L HI 4000k on the right (Kelvin according to Oveready & LUX-RC serial# readout).

    So far the black HA aluminum but I just received the titanium on friday and programmed it just now. I´m pretty sure it will be a draw between these two.

    Thanks Eric! 219C has a nice white wall tint. Color rendition outside should be even more impressive. Nice line up, Ti stands out among his brothers

    The aluminum patina is the only amber I managed to get (apart from a V5 dropin). The others are all red secondary. I like the amber better though. It is slightly brighter than the red and.... well more pleasing to my eyes.

    Both of my current BOSS have the red secondary.

    That amber sounds nice, though ....
