    4- body (size/finish)
    5- tail cap (style/finish)
    6- tail switch (clicky, zrs, ect...)
    7,8,9,10???
    Maybe are this the 10 main categories:

    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.

    Fewer choices... Maybe the switch is integrated into the body. That would make for a simpler setup and maybe easier to design a good pocket clip for.

    What if the S.S. in B.O.S.S stands for side-switch?

    BOSS lacks the thickness needed for side switches. Switching is from the tail.

    For key advantages, BOSS will have its own threading.
    But we also understand the appeal of interaperability.
    So we're making a version of the head with more universal threads.

    BOSS will not introduce changes to the board, which comes in only one version (triple).
