    I'd be happy with that! Pitty the Kcd can't be pushed further.
    Anyway, for me it's 70k lumens, 400Kcd. I think it's need more power to produce higher performance.

    Hello guys! It's been a while since I've added a light to my collection. The last one was the Rev Victor. This light has definitely got my attention. Do we have a ball park price on this monster light?

    If you are looking for exact numbers your best bet is to email Vinh directly.

    I would think were closer to the $3000 range for this phenomenal light. All those leds and all that hand work have got to really drive the price up. But of course Me want!!!!!

    Now, Now, Now....I would not be so bold as to go that far. Us surplus military and aviation Short Arc searchlight people deal in 30,000,000 - 100,000,000 True and Honest C.P. (I've been responsible for producing 800,000,000 CP form one of my lights in the past) And, for the record, as an HID guy too, I'm not the least bit nervous. Aux Contrere, I'm excited about LEDs reaching HID and some low Wattage Short Arc performance levels.

    So the light is incredibly bright as expected. Solis is not here for direct comparison yet. Its on loan.
    But the throw is only 300Kcd. I think XHP35 HI and Quad optics couldnt match the throw of the XPL HI and Triples.
    But its freakinggggg bright!!!!

    Not hitting 500Kcd mean this one will be a one off light only. :-)

    Sirius VS Solis beam shots when its in.

    What if you filled the head of the GT with a bunch of 35 HIs in U21 reflectors or something similar towards the middle of the head, and have a bunch of triples towards the edges of the head?

    More boost, carriers redone with double springs and bypass wires, Optics readjusted and glued fixed, polished surface below MCPCB and heat sink top, improved thermal paste, make sure all screws torque to maximum, trim all wiring to shortest length possible, add extra solder to ALL connections points.

    Ka Ching ;-)
