The PR-1 was a neat idea. Mine was too flaky to use but it was a darling light with some nice features. Even the cool white tint was pleasant enough.
I hope PK comes back to consumer lights some day. I'd like to see if he has other concepts in mind.
What a great upgrade. How long ago did Randy do that? Such a dedicated, skilled flashlight master.Pk AA 😃 I'd buy every color made!
Sorry, missed this thread revival last year. I must of been stuck in the 2020 covid matrix
I did have Randy Brodgen do a emitter swap and UI upgrade to my FL2LE.. Changed XML2 for Osram W1. After Randy did some tweeking, focus turned out perfect for FL2 reflector. H17fx Lucidrv2 keeps it simple
Hope Paul Kim is doing well these days. It'd be nice if he'd drop in on CPF say hello
I was using mine outside tonight and thinking of how I like it. Go on CPF and see the thread notifications, funny how that works. It looks similar to your old one. I think it’s one of PK’s best designs.Sometime in or around June 2016 I bought a pair of PR-1's from a place called Bulls Eye WorldWide.
Recently I misplaced the one I carried since day 1 so I cracked open the other one. I found the first one so the other one sets in a drawer just in case.
Some wondered how the PVD coating would hold up against the elements. I have carried the first one in a pocket with coins, a knife and nail clippers to work each day.

I'd say it has held up well.
