    Do you plan on having any pocket lights similar to the one you included with the Deft X?

    Nothing on the low end of the market. I have had for some years now rough plans for a small light that was pushed far beyond any small light ever released. It would require a fundamental rethink of flashlight design and so could not simply be a modified platform. Unless it was heavily modified. Given the work that would be required vs what people want to pay for a light that size has prevented me from fully exploring my ideas.

    I am shocked. To be honest I have no idea. First I've heard of it. Let's hope there is a way.

    Wow, that is surprising and unfortunate. Maybe you can get the rest of their stock if they have any.

    I called Waiven a month or more ago to purchase a collar for a SBT-70 which the store claimed to be in stock. They appeared to have no interest in selling anything. I called a couple of additional times for the order and got ignored.

    Lets hope that someone purchases the patent and decides to produce the collars, possibly in a few different sizes.

    If they are not defending the patent, and are out of the game, it might be open season on it. Just start making them and its ON.



    If the guy wants a few bucks royalty instead of the usurious rates he was asking before, he might even keep some cash flow to be fair about it.

    Not knowing on what grounds they went out of business the assets may belong to their creditors if that's all they have.

    I've seen a few patent whores wait years to file against people using what was thought to be in the public domain.

    The last price I saw was $99 for the collar that fit the SBT-70 emitter.

    I guess I should have been more forceful when attempting to order.
    Those that can, do. Those that can't, teach.

    Sorry, these are too rare to sell them. The small collars will find their way into 2x TN31 and 1x TN32 and the medium collars will be part of my triple aspheric custom build (Thor Colossus X).

    Well technically it won't be the DEFT-X but rather its twin brother. 2-3 weeks.

    Just so everyone knows, I don't think Wavien has ceased operations. It appears simply that their home page is bugged, but other pages are still entirely reachable on their site: http://www.wavien.com/shop/

    Hi,

    i tried to send a mail to Harry Farrer. The mail is delayed for 5 days now and could not be delivered. So i think it is more than a bugged home page.

    Greetings

    Can the Lemax LX70 Superpower HID Light throw further than a deft?

    LED flashlights have never outdone HID for output. The Deft's claim was best production LED light. The REV Victor Enthusiast overtook it late last year as far as LEDs go, with nominal 1.3million cd. It is the upgrade to this light.

    Ahh yes, the Rev Victor Enthusiast (of the famous Deft-X line) is still the farthest throwing production LED flashlight known to man or beast.

    Btw I just spoke to Michael on the phone this evening and I'm pleased to say that he's not only repairing my Deft-X, but he's also giving it a Wanderlei Silva sized dose of steroids! I'm going on record here now and saying that when completed my Deft-X will have eased past Rev Victor and might possibly even finish within earshot of his most inquisitive brother.
