I'll probably grab that SC600w IV Plus HI whenever it releases along with maybe one of their AA headlamps. Good to be back
The SC600w IV Plus HI was listed on their spreadsheet as coming out "very soon" so I didn't have any reason to doubt it. Been out of the game a long time so maybe things changed, but the spreadsheet looked like it was updated somewhat recently as of last month.I didn't think the HI models were coming back? The SC600w Plus is probably my most used light at this point and I like it way more than HI model. I compared the SC600w Plus and HI directly and the Plus beam was far more useful in my opinion... my eyes could not tell any significant different in the HI throw, just narrower beam.
The SC64w makes more sense in the HI version to me, which I also have. The combination of SC600w Plus, SC64w HI, and H53Fc pretty much covers all my needs.

The HI just sounded pretty interesting to me and have never owned a HI variant so wanted to try it.
a very nice welcome back lineup!!!Been out of the Zebralight handheld game for a long time, almost a decade now. Used to own an SC52w and SC62w and really loved them at the time, but ended up selling them as I had an obsession with tailswitches for handhelds for some reason. Additionally, the Zebralight tailswitch model never materialized as far as I know, so that ultimately led me to sell the SC52 and SC62 (though I regret not keeping the latter). Still own one of their headlamps, an H600fw mkII, which I still use quite often but it has some quirks. Namely a mushy switch and not the famous tactile clicky that ZL's were known for and the light will intermittently step down immediately from H1 for some reason.
At any rate, now I'm back and glad I jumped back in. Grabbed an SC5c II LE, SC64c LE, and the SC700d recently. The output on these things is really impressive compared to their older counterparts and absolutely love the tint on the LE models. Really missed the ZL UI on a handheld. I see that ZL's anodizing is a lot more consistent these days as well. I remember it used to be a crapshoot as to which shade of grey you'd get lol. The SC700d is really impressive for how small it is. I always wanted an S6330 when they were still making them because of the output and relatively small size (at the time), but it was still a little too chunky for my taste.

Very Nice!modded mine last night, and it's my new favorite flashlight.
beam shot of three modded sc64 and a stock d4v2:
sc64c le (Nichia 519A R9080 sm353 3500K M400 L5 dedomed, me)
What tool did you use to remove the bezel?
All this ZL talk has me wanting to order an sc64c le
I'd want to crack it open and swap the LED.
I think Bob uses a convex wood carving tool?
what emitter are you thinking of using?
