Thread: The Official "I want a 4Sevens/Quark NEUTRAL XML" Thread :)

  1. #1

    Default The Official "I want a 4Sevens/Quark NEUTRAL XML" Thread :)

    Just wondering how much interest there is out there?

    I would pay $100 for a Quark TurboX Neutral with a flat tail cap if they would just make it.

    My current EDC is the Quark Turbo with flat tail cap but if I could kick up the lumens and improve the tint with an Neutral XML emitter in it....

    When I emailed 4Sevens about it a while ago they said they had no plans to bring one in at that stage. I'm hoping this thread can change that :P

    *So far*
    Auskipper wants TurboX
    Mrlysle wants an unspecified one
    Holygeez03 wants a AA Tactical
    Tbenidict wants a AA Quark of some description
    Kyhunter says lack of Neutral is stopping his purchases from 4Sevens
    JS82 wants a 1xAA
    Psychbeat wants a Mini 123
    Vesper says lack of Neutral is stopping his purchases from 4Sevens
    JBM wants an unspecified one.
    Burntoshine says lack of Neutral is stopping his purchases from 4Sevens

    Which one do you want an XML Neutral emitter in?

    AA Tactical optimized for use with 14500 please. My Neutron 1A is close, but would prefer tactical switch and Quark quality.

    Should also work well with 2xAA tube and Eneloops.

    I currently own a Quark AA2 Tactical Neutral w/XP-G and I love it, but the XM-L extra lumens and wider beam would be ideal.

    Ahh, you got lucky. The main reason I want 4Sevens to do the neutral is purely be cause I think the UI in the Turbo (same as tactical) is the best UI since sliced bread. (do so also really love the form factor of my Turbo) If I had a Neutral XP-G emitter in a Quark Tactical I would probably be fairly happy right now :P

    That neutral run had sold out by the time I found out about it though

    I would really like a newer neutral Quark, but I'm not sure if XPG or XML would be my vote. I'm a AA/14500 fan and value beam quality and runtime over sheer output.

    I was going to start the thread myself; but thought to myself, I love both my Turbo X already and love the wide throwy beam of them. One already has the pee tint and that was close enough to neutral. Maybe I may just be down for a warm (not neutral) 2x123 X tactical version.

    The lack of neutral and warm tints have stopped any of my purchases recently from 4sevens.

    I want one that shows the most accurate colors.
    Would that be Neutral or Warm?

    Same boat here. I emailed them a few months back and asked if any were on the horizon and their answer boiled down to, "duh, it says limited doesn't it...".

    If it wasn't for disappointment, I wouldn't have any appointments.

    Same here... I like the UI and battery options of Quarks and Zebralight... but Zebralight has been getting all of my flashlight money because of their neutral versions... and will get more as soon as they release the SC600w.

    I also went ahead and bought the Neutron 1A Neutral since I have no confidence that Four Sevens will create neutral XM-L lights.

    shouldn't this be in the manufacturers corner of the the market place where it can be ignored just like the other threads requesting specific products from 4sevens.

    I'd very much like to have a Turbo X with a T5 neutral emitter for use as a small throwy light to use on my bike helmet, or caving, etc. If they come out with a neutral model, I'll be ready to jump on one. I have 5 Quarks as it is, all regulars, and I'm sick of the click-shuffle dance you have to do with them to skip through the disco modes... I'm ready to give one of the tactical models a try... but only with a neutral emitter!!! And like the rest of you, I've not bought a Quark in over a year now because of the lack of neutral offerings.
    What? Me? Derail a thread?

    I know I'm small potatoes, but my first post-CPF light was a neutral Quark 123-2 tactical (XPE Q3-5A) in Jan. 2010, and I've purchased and/or gifted a score of lights since then, but this Quark is still my favorite EDC. Beautiful tint and beam pattern. Mr. Chow is a shrewd businessman (totally a compliment), so I'm sure he'll continue to provide us with what he believes will sell. As many have stated, however, cool whites just don't do "it" for me anymore.

    I would not mind a Turbo X (tail-standing) neutral / warm tint in either HA111 or Titanium! About 5B1 would be good.

    I could see a Turbo X in Neutral. And a AA AA Tactical. Lack of Neutral/Warm has also stopped me from purchasing them too. I refuse to buy any more "COOL" lights. I prefer Warm, Neutral is tolerable.

    That is subjective. I think warms are great. There are a lot of CRI and tint threads out there.

    I'm waiting to buy a High CRI Quark Tactical AA^2, but thats using a XPG. I'll believe 4sevens when they have the lights listed, that thread has been going on a while over at the marketplace.

    CRI be damned, I want neutral & bright. [okay high CRI & warm]
    So where is the 'outdoor-white' version of the xm-l?
    I want a T6 bin with a CCT in the 4000-4500K region.

    Let the cool-white upgrade to U2 bin. Fenix TK70 & Klarus XT20 don't seem to overly green/blue-ish.
    6.5K diving light, 5K cool-white, 4K neutral-white, 3K warm-white, 2.7K extra warm-white
