You have to modify the smooth reflector - Mountain Electronics (mtnelectronics.com) tells how:Hello. Sorry for delay. Ordered reflector from Ebay merchant/China, long wait. Pluses: well made, good fit and quality. As for beam forget it. Dark center, rings, loss of throw, really ugly result. Stock reflector is the way to go I guess unless you are talented enough to reposition the emitter. I have it if ne1 wants it
This smooth reflector along with a dedomed emitter or XP-L HI is what you need to build an L6 "thrower". Warning: without modifying the reflector base, you will be disappointed in the resulting beam. A good beam can be achieved with this reflector, but it requires some work and tuning.
Here are my steps to achieving good focus with this reflector using a domeless emitter:
1> Ensure that your solder joints are flat and smooth. You need a flat surface so that the reflector can sit down as far as possible. Use 22 AWG wire (18 AWG is too large to get flat enough).
2> Discard the white XHP70 centering ring and instead just use a flat plastic insulating gasket like this one.
3> Sand the central raised portion off of the rear of the reflector. Then evenly sand the rest of the reflector base to approximtely 50% of its original thickness.
Can you provide an example of your pocket carry?
