Hope I get the shopping notification for my NB30 soon. The order was May 18, 2021.

Than only the tubes are still open. My order was April 26, 2021. It is almost the 1st anniversary.
Think you should get your notification soon, I got shipping notifications for 2 of my lights late last week and both were ordered same day as you (18 May 2021). Now just waiting one more shipping notification for light ordered 24th of May last year.

My 2nd flashlight has been shipped yesterday.:clap:

But only for correction reasons. The tubes were ordered 12. October 2020. I was mixed up completely. I am really getting old and start forgetting things... :banghead:

Can any of you old timers tell me if this switch boot from a legacy Ra Clicky tail cap is user replaceable and if so how? All my other Clicky tail caps have slots on the retaining ring which can be unscrewed with a dime. Any help is appreciated.

Thanks DS. I figured that might be the way to go. I had already tried lightly prying on the silver ring, but got no real movement so I thought I'd confirm I was going down the right path.

2 new lights arrived, those on the far right.
Left to right: HiCRI XPG Clicky (3700k) 120 lumens, NB45 Clicky, SS40 Panda Rotary, NB45 Rotary, NB40 Rotary.

Just waiting for one more NB35 on the way.

Interesting change in reflector texture going from shiny orange peel in the SS40 to more diffuse pattern in latest reflector. New rotary tails feel very smooth and so far am finding that I like the NB40 better than the SS40 in the 4K temperature range. Overall very happy with the lights, one year was worth the wait!

in my opinion NB40 is the best 4000k LED option I have. Maybe NB4 - the Nichia 4000K 9050 is better...???... but sice I do not own this option, the NB40 is the best for me. Better than NC40 and better than SS40 and other 4000K options. I also prefer NB40 over NB45.
