Such a nice looking light. I would love to see a Ti bezel ring for it :) just for kicks.

Also, could someone post a photo with a TK75 battery extended attached. Since the knurling is different for the 61 and 75 it would be nice to see how the battery tube looks.

Hi kj2,

You compare the TK61, with the TK75 tonight/evening?

The TK61 must be point out much further i hope than the TK75, 92000 kcd, against 170000 kcd.

The high mode of 400 lumens is equally, or even more intense than the TK75, hotspot, and the turbo of 1000 lumens exceed it by far.

Check it out, and post your story tonight here at candlepowerforum. I am curious.

Will post my observation :)
But having both lights yourself, you could check it out ;)

I have my TK61 send back, because the led is OFF center, and i want a flawless example.

Bummer! I had a Fenix TK41 that had the led off-center and that bugged me to no end and the hotspot was shaped like a football! Don't they have automatic precision machinery that can center the led perfectly,or do they do it "by eye"? HB

I wonder how a off-center led is possible in the TK61. The reflector sits against the white retainer-ring that holds the led. That way a off-center led wouldn't be possible, because if it is, the reflector wouldn't fit correctly in the head.

Test the TK61, and TK75, tonight, and compare them, inj throw, reach, and brightness against eachoter,

And if the TK61 reaches much further (170000)kcd, than the TK75 (92000)kcd, then i order it again.

Just a quick FYI for you guys,

I have a TK61 listed in the MarketPlace that I picked up a week ago to compare to other lights. It is exactly as advertised by Fenix. It out-throws the TK75 (though less overall output), by a decent margin.

The Thrunite TN32 out-throws the TK61 by a small margin, and neither light comes close to the Olight SR95S-UT.

Is that the SR95-UT or the SR95S-UT? I have the SR95S-UT and it is quite a thrower using the SBT-70 LED. The SR95-UT uses the SBT-90 and only musters about 170K candela compared to 260K for the S version.

The only thing cosmetically about the TK61 I wish was different was I wish it had a dark stainless steel bezel ring like the RC40 has. I know they probably were going for a color scheme to match the grey buttons, but I think it would have looked really cool with how big the reflector and head is. Meh, it still looks cool though I guess.

How thick/tempered/coated is the glass on the TK61.

One reservation I have is that that lens is SO big compared to other lights I never even think about the lens on a light like my TK11 breaking ever because it's super small hard and protected. But somehow it seems much more likely that the lens on the TK61 could get damaged or cracked if it were dropped or hit. I know it's probably really sturdy especially with that stainless steel ring around the bezel.

Just compared the TK61 with the TK75 (gen 1). Situation: almost complete dark soccer field, two storage boxes at 130mtrs. TK75: lights up field 80mtr across and easily reaches the storage boxes. Both boxes are clearly visible. TK61: reaches very easily the storage boxes. Hotspot is brighter, which is visible with my eyes. Hotspot can only light-up one box. Between the corona and spill is a dark spot around 10mtr wide.

Antenna tower, 275mtr away. Both lights light-up the tower, but where the TK75 only shows the contours, the TK61 lights-up every single piece of metal.

As expected, the TK61 and TK75 are different lights to each other. TK61 as thrower, TK75 to illuminate a large area.

Doh!

i lost the "S". You are correct, i meant to say the SR95S-UT.



Is that the SR95-UT or the SR95S-UT? I have the SR95S-UT and it is quite a thrower using the SBT-70 LED. The SR95-UT uses the SBT-90 and only musters about 170K candela compared to 260K for the S version.
