ALL SOLD! Spy 007, Haiku, and McGizmo Light Engine

Would like to replenish the PP account with three nice items for sale.

Happy to answer any questions - just shoot me a PM or post here.

PayPal and US preferred. USPS priority shipping included in all prices - let me know if you want additional insurance. I cannot be held responsible for the light once it enters the postal system. And I reserve the right to withdraw sale at any time before payment has changed hands.

Want to sell this but would trade for Mac Copper Tri-EDC or Ti/Copper Knurly.

Cool Fall Spy 007: serial #0344 and sporting a Seoul SSC P4 LED. Cool white tint with a bit floodier beam. Two blue trits installed. Nice, crisp clicks on the switch. Accepts RCR123 cells. I pored over the light and could find no signs of carry – rate this at near mint condition. Will include a lanyard and plastic bead to open the battery compartment. Price is firm unless you want to use other payment methods $650 SOLD

McGizmo 3V Hi-CRI 119 Light Engine: three levels of perfectly tinted goodness (93 CRI and 4800k color temp) for your Mule, Sundrop, or Haiku (double check if your reflector is compatible). I believe these are ~$130 direct from Don, get yours for $80 SOLD

UPDATE: after receiving the Haiku, Ron believed it was actually a 119, not 119V LED. I consulted with Don himself (as well as the two previous owners of this light) to identify the Haiku but due to the minimal difference between the two LEDs, can only say our best guess is 119. To be certain, Don would have to examine the light in hand. Ron was very understanding and has chosen to return the light to me for a full refund. So the Haiku is back up for sale at a new, lower price. If you are personally debating between the 119 vs 119V LED as well, Don had this to say about them:

"With the 119 and 119V I am using, the V has a rose sort of tint whereas the 119 is more on the cream tint, to my eyes. In either case, the tint is not noticeable unless there is another light source involved and being compared to it. In using the light, there is no noticeable bias imparted to what is being viewed."

Otherwise, the difference in output is less than 20 lumens between the two LEDs. If you are looking for the famous Hi-CRI tint, this Haiku will not disappoint.

McGizmo Haiku: most likely sporting a Hi-CRI 119 LED. Carried on and off for a few months so shows typical minor signs of use on the titanium – worst of it is on a small part of tail that can just be made out in the close-up photo. NO major dings or scratches. The clip and screws are not on the light but will be included. The screws were stripped during removal, so I put them in a vise and sawed notches into them so a flathead screwdriver can be used (not especially clean but perfectly functional) $360 SOLD . . . AGAIN!


Thanks CPF!

Re: Cool Fall Spy 007 and McGizmo Haiku for Sale

They may not have been stripped you need the special Allen driver and it kind of snaps in I have one, it is an,MIP, You get them from a guy in LA who is big in remote cars, he makes them and they work fantastic. Buyer can always get a set of screws from McGizmo to make the light perfect.

Search Miponline. All McGizmo owners should have this tool! And a spare set of screws, set of all O Rings and a rubber switch boot/cover and a spare clip and switch. In their Mc Giz supplies.

Hope this helps, good luck with the sale. Nice price for a Haiku!

Thanks for the heads up. I tried everything in my closet from a torx driver, Leatherman bit kit, and small toolbox. I could not tighten the screws enough to get the clip to sit flush with the tail of the Haiku. At that point, I just put them in the vice and worked them over for use with a flathead screwdriver. As I said, a little rough but works fine. I will include everything and leave it to the buyer to decide if they want the clip on the light or not when they get it.

And thanks for the offers I have received so far, think I have replied to everyone. Both lights still available.

UPDATE: this Haiku is the original 119 version and is definitely compatible with RCR123 cells which is what I used in the light (AW brand to be specific). Based on the thread here: http://www.candlepowerforums.com/vb/showthread.php?340977-Nichia-High-CRI-LED-119V (lots of info about the LED) this light is putting out approximately 5, 25, and 107 lumens for the three modes with max drive of 500ma on the 3S light engine. The beam on these is often praised and for good reason - 93 CRI and 4800K temp.

The threads in the body and on the screws themselves are perfectly fine - just the heads of the screws were modded so they work with a flathead screwdriver.

Let me know if you need anything else. Thank you.

The beam on these is often praised and for good reason - 94 CRI and 4600K temp.

The threads in the body and on the screws themselves are perfectly fine - just the heads of the screws were modded so they work with a flathead screwdriver.

Let me know if you need anything else. Thank you.

If the buyer has a CONUS address (and plans to use the clip), I will send them a FREE set of stock screws upon request ... :)

Definitely best to use the correct driver with these, for installation or removal - Thorp 1/16" hex driver by MIP
