    GTvn is turning out to be a groundbreaking flashlight. It is time-consuming, costly, and involves ultra-detailed work. The cost of the LED is preventing any flashlight manufacturer from touching it.... If it were not for Vinh, mankind would have been completely deprived of true greatness with this GTvn. Thank you.

    ...the lyrics from Brittany Spears’ “Crazy” song describes how you feel... about a flashlight (GTvn). Then you watch the “Love Bites” music video by Def Leppard and sees a stunning resemblance between Rick Allen and... PK!

    Yes, Sir. In Vinh I trust. I am getting in line for the GTvn. The GTvn is by far the greatest thrower flashlight in any form. I am so excited 😆. Thank you Vinh. GTvn is a quasar.

    For a random pick, you done good. The GBs have a very loyal following among Spyderco fans as great EDC workhorses.

    You did good Newlumen!! My Gayle Bradley 2 is one of my best knives. Keep that M4 blade oiled as it is not stainless, but it can get scary sharp!

    This is my most favorite blade of all time.
    I am happy to realize how happy I am. Thus, a chain reaction of happiness.

    i have heard only ravishing good comments about Sig. a person who works in legacy U.S. Customs acted like the way I did toward V54 flashlights and the GTvn, when they announced the switch from Glock to Sig. he also was adamant in his application for an M4 over the Shotgun for his duty weapon. At the time I had thought shotgun was the best. This is why I need to leave it to the professionals! Ha!

    I had a Sig, it's a quality handgun but was a bit to large for my desires so I returned it and bought a smaller, lighter Glock 43. I really like it.

    2018 marks my 2nd year as a consumer of Sky Lumen lights. I had previously been a big consumer of Surefire but that all changed after PK’s departure. I bounced from Fenix to Olight to Thrunite to Nitecore. Then in December, 2016 at the start of the TN42 / X65 thrower fury, I discovered Sky Lumen.

    For my first year in 2017, i was literally a sweet-toothed kid in a candy shop. I couldn’t get enough! Most recently, I have settled down as I finally am finding the right stuff for my tastes. Before now, I was plowing through everything like a man lost in the desert finding a pristine lake of fresh drinking water. I take the responsibility.

    In terms of “lost”, it is not an exaggeration: PK’s designs were works of art. Suddenly it was GONE and I slowly but steadily fell into major depression from not finding “the best flashlight.” I had neither the experience of middle age nor maturity to preserve history.

    Thank God for Vinh and Sky Lumen!!! Every one of His modded torches is an artistic masterpiece. IMO Vinh’s mods are the best flashlights.

    ^^I like that you capitalized the "H" in His. lol


    Well I saw a massive barge moving up the Ohio past my house last night so I ran and got my GT. At first I lit up the river bank and water tower on the Indiana side, then I lit up his barge. I wanted to impress the pilot, but I was careful not to shine the light directly at him. He definitely noticed because he then pointed his thrower directly at me, which blinded me. I immediately returned the favor and he backed off.

    I'm not sure but I believe my light was close to, if not more powerful than his. This experience tells me that I need to be careful where I aim my GT. I've been shining it all over the Indiana banks since it arrived.... there are several homes withing 1,200-1,500 yards away so I'm thinking I might not be very popular. I actually wouldn't be too surprised if someone drives across the bridge and knocks on my door. So if y'all don't hear from me for a week or so please alert the authorities... they'll want to keep an eye out for a body floating down the river.

    HELP!

    I used to know but I've forgotten how to calculate throw distance to candela. If a light throws 4,637 yards (or 4, 240 meters) what is the candela?????

    It should be somewhere in the neighborhood 2M cd or maybe a little more.

    Divide 4240 by 2 then mulitply the number by itself
    So 4,494,400 candela

    Thanks, but I'm still a bit confused. For example... Vinh has the GT listed at 1.1Mcd = 2098m Throw. So if I double that, 2.2Mcd should equal 4,196 meters of throw. So it seems to me that 4,240 meters of throw should equal just over 2.2M cd. I don't see how it could be 4.5M cd.
