Any one know if Fenix plans on releasing the L1D/L2D CE series in natural HA?

I kinda hope not... I was looking forward to buying a natural HA when the L1D-CE was announced... then was very disappointed to discover that there *sniffle* wouldn't be a natural option.

So yeah.

The blacks not bad. Looks more durable than the L1P but time will tell.

Natural would be very nice.

I do believe that they are going to release natural HA for the LOD CE

4sevens said that he THINKS they may start doing L0D-CE mid March. However, they already do other AAA sizes in Natural HA so perhaps they are tooled up for it. As they have never done AA size in this finish, perhaps they won't ???

They should put a decent switch and a pocketclip on it before worrying about what color it is.

They do put a pocket clip on it. Comes included.

Why would anyone want a switch when they can have a twistie ???:laughing:

I'm not too fussed with the reverse clicky on the L1D, especially considering it's a multi-mode light.

Theres no excuse for a reverse clicky on a single high output light though, that really irritates me. Momentary is how I like to *use* the stupidly bright ones!

Thats why this MTE Seoul is bugging me... a reverse clicky on a "tactical" style light really REALLY pisses me off!

We can only hope that Fenix really does monitor CPF and realize that there is a demand for a Natural L1D CE. I am waiting for this to be available before I buy.

They seem to have responded to popular demand in the past.

Well here's the office scoop (if there is such a thing)...
Fenix is building their own finishing plant since some of the naturals didn't
turn out the way they wanted. They estimate sometime mid to late March
when they'll be cranking out naturals again. Probably the stuff thats
been offered as naturals first and then later ones.

One note about the AA lights - traditionally they have only offered them in
black. I'm not sure why, but I'd say there would less likely be a natural offering
in the AA lights. However, I would guess the L0D CE would come out in natural
as some point in time. :D

Seems to me, especially if they are setting up their own plant, that it would a commercially good thing to do to expand the product range simply by offering them all in black and natural.

That could be a reason the naturals were offered in a limited way.
Outsourcing is a pain, and many times they mess up the parts you sweat
over. (ask PEU :D )
