For the Aluminium version, the manufacturer went out of stock of HAIII finishing body.
And sent me 2 times of other anodizing body, which I rejected already.
I am looking for the best alternative body right now.
Should arrive within 2 weeks and update here.
If it does not meet your standard, money back is no problem.
Ti version is not affected. Should be finished ~a month.
Sparkss, mglamb, pri0n, Thanks!
CarpentryHero, KevinL, if possible, will get a few more for sure.
6500k and 5700k are color temperture.
6500k is whitest of white (cool snow white)
5700k is like noon time of the sun, slighty warm compare cool white.
But only 6500K cool white is available.
Thanks! I think I will pass, someone else can take my spot on the 'eagerly hopeful list' (not the paid list as we haven't paid anything yet). Someone contacted me and offered to let go of their light and I just received it today.
I'll say a few things about it...... first of them is
WOW, WHAT A LIGHT!!
Build quality is top notch. I have had the opportunity to paw many many
lights over the years, whether off-the-shelf hardware or one-shot custom jobs, and the build quality of the Pocket Rocket is right up there with the best of them. Double O-ring sealing on both ends, GITD O-ring up front, GITD tail cap. Machine work looks great. Definitely a quality product that I would carry without reservation.
And as for light output, definitely a light cannon. The SST-50 and this reflector produce a diffuse hotspot with plenty of sidespill in a gigantic wall of light. For those of you who know and love the Surefire L4 LumaMax (LuxV version) - you are gonna love this. I've been a L4 owner almost 6 years and I know how the beam works.
Watch out for the heat; pocket ROCKET is appropriate when describing a 10+ watt heat source driven hard at full blast. After a few minutes at full throttle it becomes very warm. I bought the HA-Nat aluminium version; no money for Ti I'm afraid. But we do know that the heatsinking is working, it is escaping to the outer shell.
Knowing a couple of things about thermal management (primarily for computers, large routers and similar IT commodities), the pocket rocket is already doing the best it can without an increase in size. Even the LumensFactory P7 head, with enough fins to outfit a CPU heatsink, does get significantly warm during use. And it's got enough metal for a KT1 turbohead at that.
A good friend and I were discussing the issue today; we were questioning whether one actually needs three modes on a light. Usually you either want a low, or max blast, so 2 levels is fine. Well, I think the answer (for me) has been delivered: with the pocket rocket I would actually choose to operate it on medium mode most of the time, because it produces SO MUCH output. Its medium mode feels more like the high mode on other lights! It produces about 2x as much OTF lumens as the L4, which is inline with the spec.
In fact I did a battery check on the L4 thinking something must be wrong, as the L4 seemed too dim. Bad news: the DMM said the L4's doing fine....
Congratulations to download for yet another awesome product at a great price. No surprise he's doing run after run with these.
Keep drooling guys, I definitely think this is worth waiting for!!
