Will probably put the Samsung 5000k up on Monday if Henry isn't dead.
We are almost out of the SS40 that are potted in heads. Only a couple left. What remains are mounted SS40s that will be reserved for BeCu and SS. So pretty much, if someone wants an SS40 in a non-special metal light, time is about out.

RIP Henry. J/K. When are they going up?

The SDR50 is now available on the custom page as an emitter choice. This is the Samsung 300 lumen hiCRI.


Hogo's Monday. :)

Yeah. Just ordered mine. The bonus is that I paid for it using money from a knife I just sold on another forum.

Good for you guys! As a bonus for us others please share your impressions when received. I’m on the fence between this dogfart emitter and the 5400k (if still available) for my SS.

Question? Will X number of the
SDR50 be pulled back and held until the SS lights are built or the finial emitter choices have been made? Looking to try the SDR50 in the SS but at the time of preorder they were not available.

You will get the option. Henry will send emails out just before the final build on BeCu and SS to make sure which emitter those folks want.

I was absolutely sure I was going to get the NLT 325 for the SS run. Now this pops up. What is the beam pattern on this one? Is it floody like the 325 wide beam or more narrow like the 250? Or somewhere in between.

Floody. You can see my tremendously crappy beam shots on the first page of this thread.
The hot spot is quite a bit larger than the others. I don't actually have a 325 XPL in my arsenal to compare it to. I'll try to fix that.
