Yea, I recently bought a 4K XPL rotary on WTS... I love it! Also have 2 new ones on the way, and maybe a third... lol. I used a couple older Surefire Maximus that have that 1-500lumen dial, and those were super useful in the shop. Especially working with metal, nice to dial it way down to avoid blinding reflections.
Perhaps I had too much whiskey last night, but perhaps there’s a way to take the dial components from a Maximus and surgically implant them in an E1.
