I do love Surefires and really enjoy looking at the phenomenal SF collections some of the folks here at CPF have. But I just received my fifth Wolf-Eyes light, and find I am really becoming a WE-aholic. These lights are so consistent in their top-notch quality, design, feel and functionality that I am never disappointed.

Here is my very humble Wolf-Eyes collection thus far. I know I'm not the only one with an affinity for these lights..... so let's see 'em!

DUQ,

Are you running 3x18650s in your Rattlesnake? What bulb are you running?

I like your Eagle - the Eagle 3 one of my next WE purchases, it's on my list after the Storm. :D

I like the looks of Wolf Eyes lights. Very tough and industrial but by no means a SF knockoff. I'd like to try one out sometime.

Rich - do you think you could post a side-by-side photo of the M6 and the Boxer? It would be an interesting size/form comparison :eek:

Regards,
Tempest

Mine is put to shame by Cernoblia i am afraid, convincing the boss is a fair effort for me. The two new WE's are certainly on my list though.

I do however have a Defender II as well, are these to become collectors items? Are they still made?

Will post a pic shortly

Convincing the "Boss" is often not easy.... Luckily, I'm still an independent contractor. ;)

Awaiting pic.

BTW, which new models are you referring to?

Keeper, I have limited myself to lights that run on either one or two Li-ion cells of one size or another.....good question about the Defender II....Glen, are you there? I was thinking of selling mine, running out of room.....also will be putting the Raider up for sale soon......and yeah, what two new WE's?

Here is the thread

I have heard about them before, but they sort of faded away.

Here is my small collection so far

I would love to see the Defender II with an upgraded emitter, i have recently upgraded my Sniper to the Q5 and now use it as a duty light. Very nice output. Let me know if you are going to get rid of your Defender Cernoblia, i may be interested.

I also limit myself to Li Ions, however to "justify" it to the boss i attempt to buy lights in different forms, so lights that are a little different to each other rather than a heap of 6V lights. I would love a Boxer, but it is highly unlikely i think :whistle:

Thanks for the link, and the pic; Keeper. :thumbsup:

You wouldn't be running the 700 lumen, emitter-rated, LF lamp in that Rattlesnake, would you?

But of course, the only way to ride :devil:

Left to right in the pic they run - LF EO13, LF EO9, WE HO P4, WE 6V and WE Q5 4 mode.

Wonder what she is running in her Rattlesnake?

OK, here goes, might as well......

cernobila - nice collection!! You're making me awfully jealous with that Thunder! Although I'd still have a hard time choosing between it and the Storm. Do you find yourself ever using the focus on the Fox, or just set it where you want and leave it? Are you finding any additional benefits of this light over say the Sniper?

The Defender II isn't made anymore? I love my 2 levels one (by twisting the head)!

Nice lights KeeperSD! I am getting ready to get a LF bulb for my Rattlesnake. Right now it has the WE Q5 D36 in it. I thought (reading mdocod's li-ion post) that a 2x18650 config would only safely run the LF EO-9 (18.5 W) bulb? Or are you running a different battery config in this light? Also, how much runtime are you getting on the EO-13? Thanks - I want to get the brightest lamp I can run safely for it, as long as I get at least around 30 minutes of runtime.

Firstly the Thunder, I have settled on 2x cells maximum in my lights, easier to charge two than three. About the Fox, different to the Sniper, when focused the centre area is brighter than in the Q5 Sniper and when set to wide, the change from centre to spill is more gradual, more like a flood effect. If you like a smoother flood, the Fox set on wide is better...that’s how I like mine.

I run mine with the small extender and 3 x 18500's with the EO13. I am not sure about the runtime though, i have never run it for a complete cycle, it is one of those "go to" lights when you need lots of light (similar to a ROP) but not something that you need to run for a long time.

How do you find the Q5 D36? I was looking into one for the Explorer, i don't have a real need for it, but it will be another nice addition to the light which doesnt see much use at the moment.
