    Not knowing what is available on the Oveready website, the Moddoo bodies with adapter are top of the line. Some options might be available?

    Do these dropins fit in Malkoff hosts?

    From time to time there are some amazing hosts put up for sale by CPF members.

    Feast your eyes on the 'Show off your Oveready' picture thread.

    Place a 'Want To Buy' thread here on CPF.

    Oveready host (6p or moddoolar). I have 2 6p (black and icy blue) and three moddoolar bodies in different size. Can't stop playing with them.

    My v5 host consists mostly of old parts I bought here on CPF.





    Here the same host with other parts.



    Here's my flashligh box with some more parts.

    I like the OR Moddoolar as a host. Although parts can be hard to find. I don't think you can go wrong with a bored 6P or C2 either.

    I have been using 35mm cells lately

    For how much would you sell the bezel in the second picture?

    Another example. Bored parts. Keep an eye out on the forums and you should find them eventually.

    Good luck!

    RPM v4 Titanium on the same host as above. The tailcap arrived yesterday. What a tailcap! And comfortable too.

    Cryos is the first thing that comes to my mind. Love it.

    I'm toying with the idea of a V5 Triple, and was thinking of getting a SF Z2 for it.
    There's no mention of a Z2 here, just C2. Is there any reason not to use a Z2? Is it the lack of mass compared to the C2?
    Thanks chaps.

    My V5 drop in is currently installed in a 6P I bored for 18650/18350 use. I also use a U2 body with an Oveready LU60 adapter. With both hosts I'm using the Cryos bezel to manage heat! I use this light for field macro photography and often run it on two 18350s in "afterburner" mode. The Cryos works very well in this application and trumps the standard bezel. The head is more bulky with this setup but I recently added a triad cap with the long clip which is working out to be a stellar combo for me.

    A FiveMega double 26650 host would give good heat management and runtimes


    I'm partial to TNC lights.




    And if you wanted the ultimate, you can get a copper 26650 host, with an extension to run 2 cells from TNC. That's my plan once I finally get a V5 drop in. I'm running E series V5 with 2 18350s, but the runtime on max leaves something to be desired



    Another option (single cell only though) is a FiveMega cooly

    TNC has the best hosts imho. His threads are a thing of beauty, and you can't beat the copper for heat management. I still need to add a couple brass and copper dragons to my collection

    Some of us are totally enamored with the Z2 style and do not consider the small amount of added mass an advantage with the C2. If you are holding the light with your hand directly, that will transfer some of the heat away.

    I heard that Oveready has Z1 and Z2 bodies in the pipeline. Custom not Surefire.

    This happened a couple years ago (at least the Z2 body, do not remember a Z1) or about then. It would be nice to see them do it again, I bought two before. With a shock-cord lanyard, they are superb for my application.
