    Default v5 Triple BOSS Flashlight (Bright Output Small Size)

    Update

    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.

    SO no 70 in batch Two?

    Can you tell us what metal/finishes are coming? So that I can plan what to get.

    I prefer the Amber to the red. I have both (not in the Boss but the WASP). The Amber is brighter and I personally find it more useful for my tasks.

    Correct, none or nearly none. Batch TWO is essentially the rest of batch ONE, and most 70's were put up earlier. Batch THREE will look more like batch ONE. Batch FOUR and after will have better 70 supplies.

    The plan is to get a near continuous 7075 supply (itself across several finishes), interspersed with other metals with their own finishes. Everything in both sizes. The first of those other metals will be those with warm colors. Here's the first part of the first light in a warm metal, right off the machine:

    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.

    Thanks for the reply, but I'm not sure what I'm looking at in the picture. Is that copper?

    Sure looks like it to me ... just what I wanted!
    In layman's terms, "theory" means an idea. However "scientific theory" is fact because it requires proof.

    Just wishful thinking since there have been, as far as I know, at least 2 flashlights made of BeCu. It'd be cool to have maybe a bezel if not an entire BOSS in that metal. Copper is cool too, no doubt!

    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.

    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,

  25. #625

    Default Re: v5 Triple BOSS Flashlight (Bright Output Small Size)

    Yes, it uses Carclo optics. The bezel is supposed to unscrew from the front to allow replacement optics but they are on VERY tight.
    This has been discussed earlier in the thread so you might want to go back...

    Thanks, i figured it was discussed already i was just too lazy to read 63 pages...

    i saw the line on the bezel but assumed it was a decorative machine mark because mine does not budge.

    Thanks for the info.

    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.

    Sorry, we're working to improve next years variety, availability, and option allocation!

    The plan is aluminum then two other metals, repeat, with 1 being 7075:

    1
    23
    1
    45
    1
    67

    Cycles will get more complex, depending on the popularity of 2+

    Yes. Standard 10507, hand inspected for Q/C. Changing them is easy - once you get the bezel off.
    We are making changes to make this easier. In the mean time….
