We will have these available before Christmas guys.
Thanks for your patience.
Working on more great lights for the future every day here.
Have a great weekend everyone!
I saw you posted and was ready to go order. So close!
Thanks for the update
Moddo- Thanks for the update. We know you folks are busy working your magic, we're just a bunch of impatient Flashaholics... Keep up the good work!
We expected BOSS to be popular and planned for several times more than normal supply. Actual BOSS demand exceeded even our optimistic plans and supplies several times over even that. Seeing this early, we quickly increased production. But even the fastest adjustments in the beginning of a multi month process still takes several months to appear.
Here’s a rough BOSS release scehedule to show you where we are at/headed:
batch ONE - complete
35% of original 7075 parts shipped out November as Patina 35, 70, and combo
batch TWO - in late production
20% of original 7075 parts are shipping out in December as Patina 35 (more soon)
batch THREE - in mid production
45% of original 7075 parts are shipping out in January, with a black coating, in 35, 70, and combo (same ratios as batch one)
batch FOUR+ - in early production
New parts being cut now, ready as soon as February. More metals, more finishes, and more 70+combo quantities. This same supply is so large it will also feed batches five and six.
As may be apparent, we are boosting production quantities with roughly monthly releases. As supplies and infrastructure improves and schedules even out, we will be working toward shorter 4, then 3 week, then 2 week schedules. Improving availability and reducing wait time between releases.
Thanks for the update! Exciting news!!!!
God bless American industry!

Oh rats. So no combos count for patina finish and Nichia leds? ;(
Guess I am waiting until batch 4 as the 70 won't be sold alone if I buy the 35 first.
Nice! How about some Beryllium Copper too?
That's fun to machine.
Maybe we're wrong and it is rose gold...
Aluminum Bronze would be cool too. It can look amazing cleaned up, or let it grow some patina. Whatever floats your boat. As a added bonus, it has a wonderful heft to it. Oh, and it smells good too.
One thing is for sure, the BOSS has tremendous potential. I hope it is around for a while, and production can keep up with demands. I can only guess that at this point, but a light like the BOSS will likely hold its value well on the secondary market for a good while. So if you were lucky enough to score say a Ti, you can flip it to get the latest Timascus & Scandium BOSS! The future looks bright for the BOSS.
Looking for a HDS 4K Rotary.
Hey guys, 2 part question... Are carclo optics compatible with the boss? And if so how do you get to the optics? The light engine doesnt have the standard tweezer notches underneath... thanks,
Do not try this at home! Oveready's website says "user swappable optics" so I pushed this harder than I should have. After trying many gentler methods, I wrapped pliers in towels and tried to loosen the bezel. The bezel is on so tight that the teeth of the pliers came right through the towel and bit the bezel, and it still didn't come loose! Although it did a terrible job to the finish... I have emailed Oveready to send the head in for optic switch, and pray they will do something about the finish also. Disregard "user swappable optic" claim and leave that bezel alone y'all.
Cycles will get more complex, depending on the popularity of 2+
We are making changes to make this easier. In the mean time….
No worries. Stop making great stuff that everyone wants, apparently. hehe.
