I always find it interesting to see what lights receive a lot of attention and which ones don't. It's surprising to me that this one doesn't see more attention and I'm also not sure why, at least from CPF members. Is it the LED, the appearance of the 'dots' machining on the head? It's doesn't seem to me to be overly large for a 21700. I do like the SS version. I'll still be curious to see what the SBT90vn does for throw. Given the head size, I'm guessing it will hopefully do as well as the FW3A90vn... however the reflector looks shallower and the reflector hole is larger, so I don't know.

You are right on. This is one of my most fav light of all time. Yet I have sold only about 10 total. No idea why....

I want to get one, not sure what specs I'd want to go with.

SS version is looking neat. And relatively lightweight due to only thin steel tube over alu battery tube. 95cri version is tempting. Not a fan of the UI, and turbo mode is essentially useless gimmick. But other modes seem well regulated. Impractical for me to order from US but if euro vendors get the cri version in stock I might get it.

Is the one in these pictures the polished or standard SS version?

SBT90.2 with DriverVNX2 gets my vote but its pricey...


Stock light with a simple 4000K 70.2 swapped would be nice and resonable also at $125:

Would you recommend this or the one you are building with the waitlist of 15?
