Hi! I recently got my sr95sut from dx.com, got a good deal compared to the dutch webshops. Had to wait a month before it arrived.
On arrival the case was a bit broken. But the insight were all there, so the case did its job!
Yesterday a friend of mine shot some beamshots with his phone. And I would like to share them with you. Seeing this thread and review helped me allot too!
first of all.. :welcome:
second, post those pics :D

Thanks Selfbuilt, your amazing reviews have been my Flashaholics guide to the Light Throwers' Galaxy. Yet another UT thrower to put beside My Fenix TK70, and excellent Thrunite TN32. Hope the Olight SR95UT (SBT-70) has as user friendly interface as my Thrunite. I find the UI on my Nitecore Caveman EA8 and TK70 uneccessarily challenging in the excitement of the "crook crisis", "fox spot moment" or whatever I am illuminating.
Budget for 2014 trashed by SR95UT, but well spent I think thanks to your amazing dedication & research for Candlepower family & Flashaholics generally. I know my "farming sister" will enjoy her Thrunite TN32 birthday present, blinding a few foxes at 500meters pestering her fully named sheep & new lamb families. No sorry no guns, but a blind fox might not find its way back so easily.

Still have enough left in my flashlight budget for another small donation to your battery budget- lets all give Selfbuilt's battery budget an encouragement boost before Christmas for...... all his 2015 new product reviews on the avalanche of next gen Flashlights.....Hope Hope!!!!! You are a great help to my research of best choices for me and friends, by your top flight research, plus independent & accurate reviws. Thanks again.

I don't post too often so Selfbuilt & ALL Have a blessed Christmas and wonderful New Year!

:laughing:

Glad you have been finding the reviews useful. And it's a good point about a simple interface - for a go-to light for things that go bump in the dark, you don't want to fumbling around trying to remember a sequence.

I'm sure there will be a lot of interesting new lights in 2015. :thumbsup:

Received my Olight SR95S-SBT70 UT 2 hours ago. Only half charged-showing 2 out of 4 green battery lights, but this light is clearly going to be my top Thrower by hundreds of metres. Some quick naked eye 3 metre wall shot comparisons shows the SR95S punching perfectly round solid brighter white holes through the centre beam spots of my Fenix TK70, and my 2nd best thrower the Thrunite TN32. I expect there to be an even greater win for the Olight at 600 metres est. to my white wall night shot comparisons across the valley.

The UI on the Olight is on par with the TK70 but I find the TN32 control ring plus tail switch easiest to use. Bought the extra TN32 for my sister's small sheep farm block in Barossa South Australia, for fox & wild dog chasing off, hoping the powerful beam plus flash blinding might make them think twice about coming back (might be a few blind sheet too??). She can't wait to get back and blast it off across her home paddock.

Likewise I cannot wait to get down to my brothers country hobby farm down south to show him what a real thrower in SB95S can do against his Ultrafire 3x xml-T6. Had my trouble getting the TN32 back from my son after the last fox hunt down south so will have to keep an eye on the SR95S to ensure it doesn't stray to far from my care!!!!!! What a magnificent LED Flashlight with amazingly intense throwing hot spot. I was going to buy the Olight when the SR90 was out but budget too tight, even looked at some HIDs but somehow I think this SR95S was worth the wait. Probably need to give new spotlights the miss in 2015 otherwise the heat wont be coming from my spotlight!!!

Magnificent Quality Flashlight with exceptional 1 kilometer throw- never thought I'd own one but one came up new on Ebay-Queensland for almost $200 off so jumped on it after reading Selfbuilt Review 20 times and all the feedback and update from everyone here on this forum,

Thanks ALL
John
