Dear Acebeam, Your X65 is truly the Intimidator :eek:, the Guardian :cool:, and all those superlatives:thumbsup:. I was testing this light at the Old Zoo picnic area at Griffith Park and it was the first light I felt was "enough light". In the past with other lights I got intimidated by strangers :candle:. With the X65 it froze would be intimidators in their tracks :drool:. No one coughed or dared be annoyed :eek:. I receive another one tomorrow from ACEBEAM fulfilled by Amazon smile :naughty:.

I have been very frequently checking the beamshot thread by Bluzie located at TLF, the German flashlight forum, to see if the Acebeam X65 beamshot has been added.

Today, I discovered this super awesome beamshot: _https://abload.de/img/p11802912vs0e.jpg

Thanks, Bluzie!

Acebeam(TM) X65 is absolutely the best flashlight there exists. It is on par with the old Surefire(R) M6-CB Guardian back in the year 2004 that also cost 500 dollars.

Thank you for a tremendous product. I LOVE your X65 the way I used to the M6-CB before the plug was pulled and 10000+ lumens with 1 kilometer+ throw has become the new standard. Thanks to you Acebeam.

The Turbo Max mode on this flashlight is what blew me away. I have seen 6,000 lumens before but not 12,000 lumens. My immediate reaction when I discovered Turbo Max - my first X65 did not come with an Owner's manual nor Warranty Card so I ended up returning it to the seller - when I discovered Turbo Max my immediate reaction was, "This is a nasty light!"

I now have my Permanent Acebeam(TM) X65 from hkequipment. Factory stock brand-new with Manual, Warranty Card, the works. Even the plastic pull battery blocker I could tell was factory-installed. Thank you.

Unbelievable. For reals.

Dear Acebeam(TM),

Your X65 flashlight is the greatest leap forward in flashlight performance since the Maglite(R), the Surefire(R) 6P, the Surefire(R) Magnumlight, and the Olight(R) SR90.

I have tested this light extensively and my personal finding is that this is a nasty light. Nasty in a wonderful, good way! I could go into a long description of each feature you put into the X65 but I don't have the energy. I am an "old man" with medical issues. Your amazing flashlight makes me feel hopeful.

Only one example of your light's reach: from the picnic table at Griffith Park Old Zoo, I shined it at Bee Rock summit. 587 yards distance. The entire rock appeared lit up.

Thank you Supbeam(TM) and Acebeam(TM) for your decade of excellence on the X series flashlights. The X65 is the Olight(R) SR90 of the current generation. And, like all the previous standard-bearer lights I named, yours will go down as a timeless classic.

post.script: the only thing better than your X65 is two X65's! I ordered your last one from Amazon smile and it is arriving tomorrow. Both will tightly squeeze into the main compartment of my Old Zoo-Bee Rock kit backpack. TARGUS brand backpack pack as pictured below. The first one I received from nitephil was missing instruction manual and warranty card. Crystal said hers from nitephil had a crack on the case. Be careful. Only order directly from ACEBEAM fulfilled by Amazon or from hkequipment or from Andrew and Amanda.



thanks Acebeam(TM)!

I agree with your above statement so much.... so much.... that I also got two X65's.

I don't think there will be anything better anytime soon. It would have to have a larger head diameter, with more non-overlapping XHP35 reflector wells. I could wait for someone to make such an item, or live without it. So, I procured another X65 for my other hand.

There is nothing else like this in hand held led. Aim two of these at stuff that is about 500 meters away: You see killer performance that no one else can see, holding two of anything else.

I am thinking about mechanically ganging three of these together.

Dear Acebeam,

You know how much I love the Acebeam X65. I fell in love with X65 before it was released. I bought two (2) X65.

Please, please tell me if there is a X65GT coming soon?

Can I send you money now to get an early test sample?


Love,

richbuff

3-1/2 years on and the X65 is still my all-time favorite all-around light.

Tried the X65 Mini but just wasn’t feeling the love.

I think that you and I are at the top of the X65 fan club. I skipped the Mini.

On the AceBeam website, I see 2020 New Product > a small pictorial representation of a red box with red bow on top and yellow tape around the box, labeled "X65GT".
I hope it is on the original head, not the Mini head, and I hope that the gift box icon turns into the actual light.

Great spot on that. Hopefully March 6th we find out!

I’m also not a fan of the Mini head, it was a major step backward from the X65 head. In fact, the entire Mini looks cheap and so opposite the high class look of the recent big Acebeam searchlights.

The first night I set the Mini out for my wife to take up to the barn, she said “Where’d you get that cheesy light?”.

:eeksign:

Then grabs her full sized X65 and headed out there door.

:lolsign:

I agree with you that the original maxi head is preferred over the mini head for several reasons, especially when there will be a GT version with more heat generated.

It looks like there is a picture posted out there somewhere on the world wide web, showing not five SBT90.2 emitters, but fourteen (14) SBT90.2 emitters, with 50,000 lumens and 2,000 meters throw mentioned; this as posted on German and Russian and other websites.

That thing's gonna run out of battery in like 5 minutes, have a 5 second turbo timer, and cost 1,000 dollars.

I just hope it has a nice low mode, something around 10 to 30 lumens is nice. Hopefully this won't be desigened like some of the other lights like the X70/X80GT where the lowest mode is way, way too bright.
