    Default FS: McGizmo Sundrop....SOLD

    Hi Guys...

    I`m in both a "Let`s Clean House" mode and a "Time to Transfer the Custody of Safe Queens" mode, so I plan on opening a few sale threads for *a bunch* of my flashlights. This thread is the first such sale, and is part of the "Let`s Clean House" effort.

    For sale is a respectfully used Sundrop from one of Don`s original runs. It`s a "one speed" high CRI LED, and takes a 123 primary battery. (I believe that it was recommended not to use rechargeable batteries this model.) It works great, and only has the typical light scratches on the Ti body that happens with use. I don`t see any scratches on the lens.

    I`m selling this light only because I recently picked up a later-version Sundrop XR-U. Here is the light that I`m offering for sale:







    The price: $350.00 USD

    Now reduced to $325.00


    SOLD to StandardBattery!


    I`ll cover shipping CONUS via USPS Priority Mail, with tracking. If insurance is requested, that will be extra at the actual cost of the same. Per usual, all risks of shipping are with the buyer once I put that package into the hands of the USPS.

    International and/or Non-CONUS buyers are welcome, provided that you cover all shipping costs in excess of the CONUS shipping costs that would otherwise be incurred. And again, all risks of shipping and delivery are with the buyer once the package is mailed.

    The first person to post an "I`ll take it", or a reasonable variation of the same, in this thread will be the buyer. (Asking a question won`t create a placeholder for you.) I can accept both cash-funded and CC-funded Paypal (but no E-Checks, please). I`ll eat the PP fees. Once a buyer posts in this thread, we can exchange PM`s or emails to sort out the shipping and payment logistics.

    Thanks for looking!

    I'd be all over this if I didn't already have a Sundrop and insufficient disposable income (for now) to buy a spare. It's my favorite light. From the perspective of a flashaholic who primarily uses flashlights indoors and is somewhat CPU-phobic (I like mechanically switched lights), the 1-speed Sundrop is the best pocket light ever made, period. js's review is as usual deep and passionate:

    At that price, one installment should be a cinch.

    But I'm from Malaysia. That's RM 1, 100++ in my currency, excluding shipping. And we earn less in RM than Americans earn in USD.

    That's more than half my salary.

    Not that cheap.. =(

    polkiuj, I didn't mean to imply that the light is easy for everybody to afford. (so pardon me if I came across as being insensitive)

    What I did mean is that its a bargain considering that its nearly $100 lower than cost for a fantastic light.

    Yea I understand. Dun worry about it.

    Just my luck. I just spent money to get a camera and now this comes out and I can't afford it. Sad...

    @ Carpe Diem: Sorry for the little hijacking of ur thread. Hehe. Consider it a free bump for an excellent light. (Not that I know lol)

    The light arrived safe and as described!

    Wonderful light. I must say MxGizmo lights look exactly as you would expect. I guess with all the great pictures that have been posed that could be expected, but I rarely get a light and say "that's exactly how I imagined it from the photos".

    The threads are truely wonderful for titanium, but shorter than I expected.

    The color temp is warmer than I expected, the beam is nicer than I expected over all. A perfect near to mid field beam indoors. I have yet to test outdoors. I tend to like a slightly warmer beam. I have yet to do any resolution tests to see if the high CRI is helpful in close up work, but I just love the beam for moving around when it's dark in the house.

    Carpe Diem really made the transaction extremely smooth and problem free. Even put up with my late payment that was initially going to be even later. Three Cheers for Carpe Diem!


    ps.. when the XP-G is available with a warmer tint I may just be looking to get a Haiku.
