    Congratulations to all who snagged one this time round. You will be very happy with them.
    In layman's terms, "theory" means an idea. However "scientific theory" is fact because it requires proof.

    Only got XPL. This was a successful ploy to make me get another later. Hah.

    Never point a flashlight at anything you don't intend to illuminate! Never buy a flashlight you have to make payments on.

    I've got the drop in as well, but cannot remember which one.

    my favorite? That is easy, the one I used last! My Boss 70 with an 18650. Clipped to my pocket. I'm somewhat surprised that with running a single cell I haven't used the 35 body yet, I really like the longer body.

    Were almost in the same boat. I didn't do a redome. I love my WASP nest. I use my E2E the most. Only thing is, it doesn't like Turbo for long. It will burn your hand (or leg) if you have protections off! So, now, I never use it with out bounce on. Just incase.
    Interested in Saltytri lights. Pm me!

    Long shot but... Would anyone that scored a BOSS 35 in Nichia be willing to trade for my XPL prior to shipping?

    I'd trade you an XPL/Red for Amber. I also tried for the 219 but was part of the oversell. No matter, I think the XPL-Hi 4000K is Excellent!

    You won't be disappointed with the Al. version, I can assure you! Not sure if you have the 35 or 70, but my 70 is so light and pocketable that I feel that there's almost no need for a 35 version (especially in Aluminium)

    Having missed on the Patina BOSS 70's (I do hope they do another run of 70 bodies) I might try for the upcoming
    black versions, I keep hearing folks say these 70 versions are easy to carry.

    Definitely. I love the 70. nice and light weight. I really was thinking I wanted a copper 70, but every 18650 copper light I've had, I got rid of because of the weight. I didn't want to carry it.

    I've stopped carrying the 3 18350 triples I have left because of the run time issues, plus they just feel too small in my hand now...

    For current 35 owners and those that scored this time around - what optic do you prefer and why? Any suggestions on which best suits this light?

    I believe that's mine in the last pic. I wanted to try something a little different.

    I went with the 35, bc I figured the E2e Copper is my 70. I really love the 35, and the battery seems to last a good while. I charge when I notice it drop when using any level. I do not use high very much.

    It depends on your primary use. For my V5 Wasp, I opted for a narrow clear because I wanted missile launch reach when on afterburner mode. Here's the Wasp on default medium.



    For my BOSS 35, knowing that running on a single battery, I could only go up to 3rd gear and not hit 5th, I said to myself, since I can't max it out, let's keep it soft and blanket my surroundings while having a bit of reach. So I went with narrow frost. Here's the BOSS 35 on max mode, about 3 feet from the wall.



    There is a difference in tint and I love both!

    I'd say...grab all the optics and test out what's best for you and your application of the torch.

    Now, for the 219 to arrive to complete my triple triple threat (thanks to PSM! After reading his post, I realized I'll have all 3 too)!

    Hope this helps and if not oh well hehe

    That''s the answer, buy all the available optics and play.
    Thank you I have now built my virtual Boss. Just need to pay for it about the same time they're released.

    I might send my original release BOSS back & have OR loosen the bezel... no way I'd want to risk damaging it to
    swap in a drilled optic/vials.

    The worst thing about the BOSS is not owning one! Congrats to all who scored.

    I'm not concerned. But I do expect to add a 70.

    The combo was THE setup...but I am very happy with the 35 I have on the way. I do like the look of the smaller light...but, I also know that a 70 will be in my future.

    The clear optic is plenty of flood for me, I wouldn't want to give up any throw in exchange for total flood.
