Still waiting for mine too........should be any day now.......:candle:
I just ordered one too. I have the stock TN31 (no slouch for sure) and I can't wait to compare them!
I've had the modded TN31 from saab for some time now. It really is a great bit of kit.
Anyone sitting on the fence, IMHO you cant go wrong with it.
Thanks again saab, very very happy with it. Keep up the good work.
The Fenix site claims some outrageous numbers for lux as compared to the stock TN31 it should be almost the same. What do one of you who has both think? Does it compare? Do any of you have the TK70 and TK75? How do they compare? I have seen some video evidence that the lux reading that they give is blown way out of proportion to the actuality, but I would like to hear it from someone who has the light. Just gives one more reason to get the modded version of the TN31 if it does come that close, because aside from the deal from the Thrunite store the TK75 is cheaper.
I am not saying that I believe that it is true, but from each of the manufacturers websites the ratings are TK70-130500cd, TK75-92000cd, and TN31-75000cd and not only that, but the Fenix site also claims that their light will go further as far as meters. I know that one XML in a huge reflector will throw further than 3 XMLs in a smaller reflector, but the websites are misleading so I figured I would get it from someone who knew. I have seen that the OSTS TN31 will compete with a de-domed SR90 in the lux department complete with a beam profile comparison, but the TN31 is being pushed to the max where the SR90 can be driven harder.
Yeah I got a range of about 112-135 for the stock TN-31. I didn't test every single one so there may be a few outliers too but that was the general range I saw. Thrunite clearly messed up on their stated cd ratings.Selfbuilt rated the TN31 at closer to 117k cd than to 75k cd.
Based on the claimed range, which is simply a calculation based on the cd...I think they accidentally published the wrong cd.
Selfbuilt's cd and estimated range are closer to the claimed range spec, but SB's cd to GET the range was a lot higher than Thrunite's ad. spec.
Also - On Saab's first page of this thread...he says the STOCK TN31 was at 130k cd, also indicating that Thrunite screwed up their ad, etc.
Glad you like it.Just got my tn-31 mod the other day. Amazing light. Nice work saabluster!!!
