    I was thinking about an SC53, probably better to hold off until spring or summer to see how ZL's business is doing. If they're still viable for warranty repair and support then I'll consider it again but no sense buying something now that might be orphaned in the near future. The SC64 I have is nice and I wouldn't mind getting something from them that runs on a more common battery.

    Wow. Just took this Plus in the backyard and compared it to the HI. The Plus definitely puts out a wall of light, illuminating everything in its path.

    Just received my new sc700fd. Very impressed. Beam looks fantastic, smooth, with zero tint shift. Colour rendering is very good, and not much green compared to sc600w plus. Pretty amazing range from moonlight to 3000L of high cri pure white light. This light is going to become a regular dark winter pocket carry.

    Just received my SC64w Hi. I think I got a good one, nice tint, anodizing, switch, and I love the form factor. But... I did some comparisons with a AAA light I have with a Nichia 219 emitter, and I guess I'm rethinking my priorities--colors just look so much more vivid and 3 dimensional with the higher CRI and warmer tint. I contacted Zebralight to see if I can exchange it for an SC64c LE. I'm not totally sure I'm going to do the exchange, but I probably will.

    I went outside tonight and tested the light in the hay field behind my house. The amount of light that little thing puts out is pretty astonishing. It's going to be a difficult choice, because I really like having the potential for all that output even if it's at the expense of a little CRI and warm tint. But I do love high CRI. I wonder how much less output and throw I'd get with the SC64c LE.

    Sounds like the best solution is owning both!

    The LE won't throw as far or have as pronounced a hotspot as the HI does.

    Correct you will lose probably 40-50% throw. Just a guess.

    Bummer. The throw and overall pattern is just right. Tint and CRI actually pretty good, it just doesn't hold up to a side by side comparison with a Nichia emitter. Yes owning both may be the way to go, redundant as it sounds, but that would be admitting that I have an obsession. Can't do that.

    I only have 8, but yeah, maybe it's a good thing they're no longer going to sell to me.

    I finally bit the bullet and bought a roll of d-c fix for my SC64c LE and Iím very pleased with the results. That said, I have a ton of this stuff leftover...

    If anyone is interested for a 4x9Ē piece of the d-c film, I will mail you one for $3 (PayPal) via USPS first class. I figure itís a win-win. Itís the Ďmilkyí color and is self-adhesive. Sticks great and removes easily without any residue.

    So you stole 20 bucks and bragged about it on a flashlight forum. Congratulations.

    I ordered an H600c Mk IV (backorder status) on 12/4. This will be my first "real" flashlight so trying to be patient and hope the wait is worth it.

    I emailed Zebralight, several years ago, to ask why they dropped the free shipping option for Canadian customers. They responded that Canadians were ripping them off, by claiming they never received the light, and getting their paypal reversed. So, Zebralight would now only use services that required a in-person signature from the customer on delivery, for Canada.

    I thought they were probably just mistaken, because why would so many Canadians be scummy enough to do something like that? Now, I finally have my answer.

    As a private seller here on CPF for more years than I care to count, I stopped shipping to Canada for similar reasons.

    Of the two SC700 offerings remaining on the website, how do they differ in real world usage?
