I have NEVER seen an optic of ANY sort found inside an Aleph. Is it because the reflectors are better?

Cuz Don can be veery stubborn, and really likes his "spill." /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/crackup.gif

Which is better is like Ford vs Chevy. (I drive a Dodge V8 Dak.) Both manage photons, and the execution of both can range from squat to magnificent. My Aleph 3 is definately on the magnificent side, but suffers from a size problem for my EDC requirements. /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/nana.gif -->Don /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif

Hey,

I drive a V8 Dak too. I have a quad cab. My next one is going to be a regular cab V8. I'm gonna go turn it into a Lightning killer.

Sorry, off topic.

Mine's a Y2K reg cab, 4.7 and stock except for some lighting Upgrades. /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif Love it! If they ever put the 5.7 in it, I'll have to get a new one. /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif

I had a Ram, but I couldn't afford the petrol for it. Now I've got a Crown Vic /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/wink.gif

But anyway, I think all of my good LED lights use reflectors. Except the SMD from Lambda, anyway. .

Well, aside from the truth spoken by that *Larry* fellah, it's 'cause I can design and get reflectors made but optics are well beyond my scope. Some day I expect we will see an optic "group" that will allow for a single and unified beam that will have an adjustable beam angle. At that point, I would be willing to forego the combination of columated/ spill beams.

If I felt there were an aftermarket optic, available that was in need of a host and worthy of consideration, I would be inclined to take a look at it. /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/icon3.gif

LOCO is more like it.
I think the easy answer is that the Aleph system was designed for the purpose-built reflectors that they come with. If somebody made an optic that would drop right in there, then there's no stopping anybody from doing just that!

gone "Squatchin" :p
OK my 2 cents...I have a few lights with optics and while they work for thier designed purpose, the Aleph reflectors are IMHO by far superior! PBAP /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif
