    I love the pictures of your TK61VN V4! I just bought a TK61 with a dedomed emitter, stock driver. No where near the lux of yours, but still pretty impressive! I'm curious how you like your TK75VN40? I'm really tempted to get a TK75VN!

    ^^^

    I like it. It is just so hard for me to get use to that very cool tint! I am use to and like neutral or warmer side of cool. several of my lights[TK35vn/TK61vn/TK75vn KT[I sold it] K40vn] are XML2 U2/U3 PDT[Premium Dedomed Tint]

    I did another MAX run time test[incremental] yesterday on the TK75 QUAD. I can get 25 minutes of max and the LG MJ1 are @ 3.50V!! So when I am on the trail I use max on/off for about 20 minutes and the lower modes for about 10 minutes.30/35 minutes is usually when I switch lights.

    I'm not a fan cool tints either. That runtime is pretty impressive! What's the tint like on your k60, with the shaved dome XPH70?

    I kind of like it. It is not nearly as cool as the SSD40. In addition the K60 has the nicest beam profile of any light I ever had,,,K40vn is close,,but that is more of a thrower so it is hard to compare.No rings whatsoever on either of those lights.

    One of Three reasons why I sold my TN42vn...........

    1.Too cool of a tint

    2. Too many rings

    3.Not quite a pencil beam like some of my XPG2 lights, but still not a big hot spot like K40vn and a few others.

    Acyually 4 reasons!! I sold the TN42vn/TK75vn KT and my SDmini to get the TK75vn QUAD!!!

    TK61vn V4 Direct hit on Mountain 1120 yards away.

    Notice a few "dots" of light. Those are homes w/ lights on!

    Thanks.I just ordered the D1Svn w/ Oslon Black Flat LED. Got it from the Black Friday sale. CAPO gave my internet TURBO speed so I would be First to post!!

    When I get it I will post some beam shots of that. It will not have much output ~700Lumens, but plenty of throw.

    I am going to take a guess of the output, especially the LUX of my D1Svn Oslon BLACK flat.


    This is what we know and what I am basing it on.

    Eagletac M30CvnT is the best V54 reflector thrower for the size
    Equipped with XPG2 PDT + DriverVN4 the Specs are:
    Lumen 685
    Intensity 300Kcd
    Throw 1100m

    W/ Oslon Black flat


    M30Cvn?
    Lumen 730
    Intensity 500Kcd
    Throw 1414m

    U21vn
    XPG2 PDT, Most throw, least heat, tight hot spot
    ANSI
    Lumen: 870
    Lux: 320K
    Throw: 1130M

    W/ the XPG2. the M30Cvn goes from 300Kcd to 500Kcd and the U21vn is 320Kcd, You would think that would go to ~500Kcd or slightly more.

    Now,,,,,,,,,,

    The D1Svn has a slightly smaller[1/3"] head than the U21. I would guess that the optics are similar.

    My guess w/ Oslon Black flat is that the D1Svn will be 420Kcd/1296m throw and ~ 730 lumens.

    I suspect the range would be at LEAST 380Kcd and up to 450Kcd!


    I am getting mine measured, so I will find out then!

    why not measure it yourself
    then you would know for sure
    lux meters are cheap now
    they way you love mods.....

    After it is on for 3 or 4 minutes I get use to it. At turn on it is still a bit of a shock! Coolest white light I ever had.

    If I could have the TK75vn KT tint I would sacrifice 1500 lumens on the quad!! Have to take the good w/ the bad,,,still happy I have it.

    Yes agree, i find using cooler lights is best when not mixed with warmer or neutral. That way my eyes are not as shocked with the cool beam. Must admit(being a neutral fan), the D1vn with the sst40 is good, really enjoying it.

    I use my secondary lights first. Just about every one of them or PDT or the warmer side of cool White. So that definitely makes it a bit of a shock when I use my primary lights with a cool white tint.

    With that said the K60vn with the SST 40 is a beautiful beam profile and also nice tint doesn't bother me one bit. Even though it's cooler. Not as cool as the quad!

    Do you have the sst40 in your k60vn? That must be quite a decent throw. I love the xhp70 shaved dome, maybe the best beam ever!

    I am very fortunate. There are tons of trails within 5 miles of my house.

    This is the "Basin Trail" along the Schuylkill River". I was on it Once before during the day.

    K60vn









    SL2Cvn. A bit blurry

    This NEW Basin trail has become my favorite and I get the best "Down the Trail" shots there. It is darker and more natural setting[Grass/dirt instead of stones / macadam].

    My D1Svn is SHIPPED! I found a spot on the basin trail w/ a clean shot to a water tower that is 1080 Yards away. That is right towards the end of the range of the light. 270Kcd =1136 yards. I will have those next week,,,,Possibly Saturday.

    For now more TK61vn V4 and a decent M2Xvn shot.

    This will be my beam distance test for my mid ranged lights. It is 902 yds./825 Meters. It starts on the bottom of the picture where it reads "TO TOWER 902 YARDS" then to the top where is reads "Target Water Tower 1314m/1438y. That is the distance from a test in the other direction for my bigger lights.

    I have no idea how the pictures will turn out using my cell phone. The lights will no doubt reach. But there may not be enough foreground light to produce a decent picture.

    The D1svn is due on Saturday. I am testing the site tonight with my U21vn XPL.

    Here are some more "Trail shots" and beam shot to water tower withe the U21vn XPL and the K40vn XML2 PDT.

    The tower shots are not that good! Especially the only one for the U21vn. I zoomed the camera to 2X. The distance is 902 yards away.


    U21vn






    Now the Luscious tower shot!!




    K40vn









    Water tower shot



    I think the D1Svn w/OSLON will turn out better than U21vn because of the concentrated beam. I will find out Saturday night!

    I pruned the branches that were in my view with the exception of the ones over the river which I can not reach.

    The photos last night were Zoomed 2X. I am going to try 2.5X and 3X even though the pictures will probably be more blurry.

    Zoom 2X
