    Its v5 based, so the first two letters are Bright Output

    It's a compact light, right?

    but how would that be any different than the pocket stubby? cant really get much smaller than that. perhaps this isnt the EDC thats been mentioned before. i think i recall reading somewhere (not sure where though) that a throw light could be in the works sometime. so im going to go with "bright output search system". i would like to re-iterate, the whole "throw light" thing might even be a figment of my imagination until i can find the post that i think i saw.

    Could it(they) have anything to do with the new tiny lights that Lux-RC are releasing?

    There was talk of a "E-series" size custom that would support 18mm cells... Maybe this is it!

    We are developing a second light with 4 ecosystem parts. Brass (and other metals) should be much easier under this new platform. Give me some months to put things together!

    Bodies exist in slim and regular, for 18350, 18650, 2x18650 and I think even 14500 at one point. Plus body extension tubes maybe?

    We also have the M-series adapters, P60 adapters, E-series adapters
    Clips in different sizes and finishes

    It simply all adds up to a lot of parts to manage.
    We will work on restocking a bunch of those parts after we get through the new BOSS launch.

    Also, we are launching something else new (insider 60) before BOSS (insider 61).

    Stay Tuned Guys!

    1 - rubber boot
    2 - switch
    3 - tailcap
    4 - clip
    5 - battery tube
    6 - neck
    7 - head/bezel
    8 - LE/dropin
    9 - lens
    10- bezel ring

    Sorry for the confusion. Ecosystem refers to customer metal choices that appear externally. ring/head/20/35/50/65/100/130/cap is 9 parts before even adding variations of body shape etc. BOSS will have fewer choices, requiring fewer parts, simplifying production and stocking logistics. Leaving room for other options.

    So if it's only 4, it would be:
    Head, body, tail, and tail switch?

    Wouldn't mind seeing a pic of the entire machine. The chuck appears to be more than high-end.

    It's always interesting to see behind the scenes, as mslm points out...
    Thanks, CPF!

    Yes. 7075 is stronger, and 6061 manages heat better.
