Reviews can be bias as its based on one person point of view. At least that my subjective point of view haha. What do you guys think? Let things roll the way it is or send out lights for reviews?

    I myself will continue to make subjective bias impression videos of my lights :-)
    I love your review. Short, precise, straight to the point. No one knows your light better than you. And I love your subjective bias too, kind of take it or leave it.

    Maybe send a couple of lights out for review to a known reviewer. I really like this guy on You tube called Scannerguy1968 he makes really cool videos. He looks and Sounds like Jesse "The Body"Ventura.

    I depend on the regulars here that have an assortment of lights. Plus, you get to know their likes & dislikes. And I agree that Selfbuilt had the best reviews!

    I think the issue with a well known reviewer like Selfbuilt, whose work I have a great deal of respect for, is that they get to the point where there is a backlog of lights to review. The "Cutting Edge" light sent to them may be not so cutting edge by the time they get a thorough, detailed review completed and posted. As long as you're okay with that, you should be happy. Their reviews can expose more people to your creations, so may be worth sending a couple with that understanding. My humble two cents...

    I haven't seen selfbuilt post a review in a long time.

    Top reviewers for me: Maukka on this forum and blf. Scannerguy1968 on youtube, and AdventureSportsFlashlights on youtube.

    Maukka in particular goes very in depth with all kinds of objective measurements.

    I played with the light all night. What a light. Really show how far we have come. Everything in the light was gutted and had to be modded. This light is now up to standard and possibly even class leading. Being a Classic also makes it that much more special to hold and admire. Each time I turn it on I cant believe it does +160Kcd. 8 years ago this light was the best of its kind at 17kcd...really hows how far technology has advanced.

    Maukka is tops for technical reviews. He is to flashlights, what HKJ is to batteries.

    Thanks for noticing. I wanted to simplify my logo for future applications ;-)
    I hope the design is simple but memorable and attractive

    As you can see there is an S and L for Sky Lumen
    The top portion depict a LED on MCPCB
    The top arc/halo is the light emitted
    The triangle shape resemble a reflector/flashlight head reflecting light
    I like the overall shape of a shield as it shows power
    Transformer thick and solid outlines similarity animate future & technology

    Cool, will this be engraved on lights instead of V54 in the future?

    On true a Sky Lumen designed light yes. And it will just be the Logo. No need for the Sky Lumen below it. No need for any of the SkyLumen.com non sense either. Hopefully the logo is another step that helps me focus on making a true Sky Lumen light :-)

    I will still sign V54 on lights that have "personal touches" upon request. The V54 was never a logo.

    Nice logo!

    The new Fenix looks interesting. I expect you'll swap the XHP70s with 70.2s.... or maybe dedome to 70s for extra throw?
