I have a Ready Made that I sent to Vinh and he put in his custom DriverVN and a 4000k XM-L2. I LOVE the beam pattern! It has tremendous spill width but still pretty good throw (since my version puts out like 1400 lumens). It quickly became and has remained my favorite light and likely one of the only lights I'll keep indefinitely. I've had it for 6 months or so which already puts it as high as all but a few of my lights.Barefootone, does your Ice V3 have a cool XML or a MCE ? At the top of one of the pics it says MCE. If it's the XML, how do you like the beam pattern, tint, etc. The reason I ask is because I just got in on the latest Custom batch (an hour or two ago) and ordered the cool XM-L2. I already have a RM with the MCE 4500k and absolutely love it. I wanted my second one with more output and a little more reach. But I'm worried that I'm taking away what makes an Alpha an Alpha ! Any opinions from anybody?
In summary, I would only choose the MC-E over the XM-L for TINT purposes and in my case I got an XM-L2 in a better tint (my opinion) than the MC-E that was in the Ready Made originally.
