    Whats the problem with that, Ice cream is good, steak is good, together they have to be gooder!!

    The 219C High Noon, 219C 4000K & 219C 3000K are in a pouch that I use for work. The 219B 4500K I use nearly everyday of the week and the 2700K is by my bed. As for the other four plus I have a Hyper Red and a Hunter Green I can’t seem to part with them lol

    Me three! And that doesn't seem like too big of a change (says someone who works in software but who doesn't do much embedded stuff - I know these things can get more complicated than they seem). Really, we know Henry doesn't owe us anything and if that never happens I'm still going to love my HDS lights, but it would be nice for that adjustable candle mode to make it to production before this awesome limited stuff gets built. At least for the bronze/brass run. Just the idea of a bronze/brass HDS with nice warm 219b 4000k R9080 AND adjustable candle mode.... Oh baby please!!

    Just got his a couple of days ago, can't stop looking at it. The Ti will look great in it.
    Hogo, I'm surprised that burgundy open top w/battery carrier is still hanging out.
    I only fear that if something happens to me, my wife will sell all my stuff for what I told her I paid for it.

    Unfortunately, that won't happen until we get the new brains in the light, and that is going to be awhile.

    I just changed the color to a darker burgundy with black internals. Maybe it will move. I'll get a pic when it's done drying.

    Understandable. So then the next obvious question -- any chance at an upgrade possibility? I know the new mcu is going to complicate that, it won't be as simple as flashing 2.18 firmware on a 2.15 light. But the Ti Clickies had (have) some sort of "premium" upgrade promise beyond the normal lights. Will these new special metal runs have the same?

    Notice I didn't ask about cost, because I'm sure putting an entirely new elf, especially an upgraded and smarter one, inside the light won't be cheap. I'm only asking if it may be an option.

    I'm not entirely sure. I'll have to check with Henry. A lot will depend on if the internal dimensions of the head will have to change or not.


    All done!

    Hollow Point.
    The rig is actually for a Ruger SP101, but I tossed my 686+ Smith into it for the pic.
    I hardly have any factory ammo in .357 and I thought zombie green cast hp would look odd in the rig.

    Of course, that's understandable. Just too early to tell. Thanks Hogo!

If it does happen, it would most likely be pretty small, and close to the same price of brass/bronze. Henry's plan is to put the parts together, then have them anodized as sets so each light is in the same spot in the tank. Very labour intensive and we don't know if it will work like we are hoping. If it does happen, I suspect it will be a few months AFTER the titanium, brass, and bronze ship.
    Yuck. That is NOT what I wanted to hear.

    I'm convinved I have a warmer emitter in my 325 Clicky than 6200K standard light.
    Here's a scan of the Led Board, anyone know what the writing means?
    Thanks,

    I'll take a guess and say XPL V6. As in L for XPL and V6 as in the efficiency bin.

    Great point emarkd. I also would be interested. Since the ti rotaries are 6 months out, they could be used as a “trial run” for a newer type of software... if we wanted them to have it!
