    So you mean that there are still "X" bins out there for sale? I would have though they are all gone. What is the going price for a "X" bin these days?

    Sorry for the lack of postings. I've been away for a bit.

    I've contacted all my sources and unfortunately, the MR-X run #2 will not be proceeding. The X'es
    turned out to be non X'es and I couldn't bring myself to making a MR-X with a W-binned LED [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img] [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img] Feelers are out again and if anything eventuates, I'll revive this thread. Sorry again.

    hotbeam, looks like MR-X map update time again [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]

    FYI: I yanked the MOP reflector and stuck in a plain mirror reflector. Performance went up dramatically.

    My MR-X puts out more lumens out the front end, than Surefire M6 Lola and tri-Ubin 2C M*g w/fatman and 2x 17500 li-ion cells. Smokes both lights for throw.

    IMHO MRX-X3T is still the reining throw king for LED lights.

    wish I had some way to confirm this. I think MR-X will out-throw PK-1, which has an Xbin side emitter VS MR-X's Xbin high dome.

    anyone that's played with both Xbin side emitters and Xbin high domes will confirm side emitters throw out more flood beam than high domes with same reflector.

    but PK-1 uses a different reflector, so only way to confirm is a side by side throw test. Now where's that PK-1? [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/nana.gif[/img]

    CY, yes, got to update the map again!! I don't think it is that up to date now. I think I might do a rollcall (with pics) to see what condition the light is at after ~20 months of use.

    It will be an interesting throw test between the HD X3T in a OAD reflector and the PK1's SE X3T in a 3" reflector. FYI, the PK1 is living in the UK currently. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]

    OK,,, Rollcall with pics. Here's mine still in mint condition shown with the perfect case from barbolight.

    If I can get the nerve up to transplant guts without damage. I've got a spare 2D body that could be Hard Anodized.

    what's the hole dia for led DD indicator?

    Cue... Damn, you just missed one at Custom B/S/T. Pi_is_blue just sold his red MR-X. I won't be doing another run due to the lack of components.

    Cy... No, nothing complicated like that [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img] Check out the DDI LED [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]

    Did you reverse the LED behavior too? Green = in regulation, Off = not? heheh. Or get a bi-color red/green led! [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img]

    Isaac... Nah, I couldn't wait till I finished the run so all the electronics are the same as all the others out there.

    Mags... Hi. Yeah, the MR-X run was completed in Oct '03. Glad you've heard of it. There are heaps of information on the original thread (mr-x.hotbeam.com). I think it went for ~$220 but there is nothing available at the moment. I'll put your name on the "next run" list.

    like Sinjz, I'm in but I do not know what I'm in for or even worse, what it is into me for.

    Please tell an old newbie. Now there is a contradiction in terms if I ever heard one. It's a senior moment and dont anybody dare criticize a senior for one of his moments. It is not nice to fool around with mother nature, she is a senior also.

    Regards of the senior kind,

    These were originally made and sold back in 2003. They're quite rare and are rarely sold. I got lucky!
