Re: New B.O.S.S Flashlight?

but how would that be any different than the pocket stubby? cant really get much smaller than that. perhaps this isnt the EDC thats been mentioned before. i think i recall reading somewhere (not sure where though) that a throw light could be in the works sometime. so im going to go with "bright output search system". i would like to re-iterate, the whole "throw light" thing might even be a figment of my imagination until i can find the post that i think i saw.

There was talk of a "E-series" size custom that would support 18mm cells... Maybe this is it!

Great to see the discussion here guys!

We are working hard to put these into your hands ASAP.

Also working to put together some more teasers to share with you.

Have a great weekend, and we hope to share more next week.

A quote from a different thread [emoji57]

It would be pretty sweet but Moddoolar have 10 ecosystem parts to match to do complete lights. That's a lot to cut and stock in multiple materials.

We are developing a second light with 4 ecosystem parts. Brass (and other metals) should be much easier under this new platform. Give me some months to put things together!

Bodies exist in slim and regular, for 18350, 18650, 2x18650 and I think even 14500 at one point. Plus body extension tubes maybe?

We also have the M-series adapters, P60 adapters, E-series adapters
Clips in different sizes and finishes

It simply all adds up to a lot of parts to manage.
We will work on restocking a bunch of those parts after we get through the new BOSS launch.

Also, we are launching something else new (insider 60) before BOSS (insider 61).

Stay Tuned Guys!
