I sort of expected them to be gone in 60 seconds. Kind of nice that didn't happen.
Still have a few left.

I'm trying to give you folks with 28.8 modems a shot at one, but I'm about to go in and get another, LOL.

Ha! I was shocked they were taking so long to go....almost went back for seconds myself. Picked up the whole black bezel ***'ly for ease of swapping.

I like it when the specific item is not sold out after 50 seconds or less than two minutes. Everyone than has the chance getting the item and not only the people having the best internet connection with low latency.
If I remember correctly this "50 seconds thing" was only with the very first run of the GITD reflectors (the 90% green reflectors without cool name), the first run double beryl and the Bronze HDS. All other items were longer available.

Mine arrived today....barely. The box was smashed and mostly open. Thank goodness my baggie with my bezel ***'ly was in there. No packing, just a baggie, must have been quite a ride but looks like all the green magic dust stayed in place. Hopefully the Elves at HDS get some bubble wrap and packing tape before the Titaniums ship! :D Tape the light to the box...better yet, tape the freakin box ends!:devil: I digress......

Glad I ordered the whole ***'ly. Easy swap out. Through it on my 4000K and I have to say....it's a beautiful thing. Side by side with the original diffusor it is the same. And the green glows like a motha! There is a tad of a green overspill close up but, hey, its a green reflector! Normal use outside or inside I really do not see the tinge on the outside. Great job and I'm very glad I scored one.

Tomorrow I'll throw it on the 3000K and then the 5000K and then the........

Dan, it was worth the work. Its a winner.

UPDATE: Amazing....you can navigate a room at night with the glow! Kept thinking the light was on.

I think HDS may need to start using a different post office in town; thrashed boxes seem to be a theme. I wonder if someone local is tearing them open to swipe items knowing that they sell high dollar gear. Several folks here have gotten opened boxes from HDS, a couple of them with missing items. Sorry, it’s off topic, but just a thought that crossed my mind reading the above post. Hate to think people would do that but you never know.

I actually talked to Henry about this...
Your package went out yesterday, but from the post office I usually use, and I taped the living crap out of the box!

Thanks Dan. :) I trust you guys obviously, and know you pack things securely, but I don’t know if all the people in between are similarly honest. :/

Anyways, these diffuse reflector runs are awesome. Thanks for going through all the work to make them for us!

My pleasure. There won't by any diffuse reflectors again for quite some time.
We do have 1 Double Beryl and 1 Firefly in the shop that we will get rid of later. This was a result of turning off the sale a hair too quick as refunding is both a pain and upsetting for the buyer.

I’ve got a bit lost over time. What’s the difference between the DB and the Firefly?

reminds me of the mission I had to get mine in the UK.
went missing on a signed delivery and turned up again after a few days.
swiping thwarted it seems as I didnt give up tracking it down.
