    Happy birthday and congrats on the awesome light!

    Thanks! Anyone have thoughts on the mode spacing in the new lights? Level one is much lower than last year's... I expect that change will be a popular one. I do wish level three was a little brighter though, but you can't please everyone. I've also noticed a somewhat significant difference in beam width between the two that I own. Both my TinyDC and Ti TinyDC are fitted with Carclo narrow optics, but the width of the beam in the new arrival is clearly wider. I wonder why that is?

    Which emitters do you have in each ?

    Ahh is that the reason for the difference in beam width? I don't know, or don't remember for sure, but I believe the new lights have Nichia 219C, but my aluminum might be 219B. I bought it from Luckyonion last summer and back then I still thought Nichia was a river in Egypt.

    LOL - river in Egypt. Wimmer21, so how are you liking the aluminum now that you scored a Ti?

    They're both super nice, but I prefer the aluminum in this instance. I'm a fan of titanium but the more narrow beam in last year's version is just a little more to my liking.

    Can't you just put a narrow carlco in there?

    (I know very little about Okluma, sorry)

    It has carclo narrow optics, apparently the emitter in the new lights produce the wider beam despite having the same optics. Jeff wouldn't make that change without good reason so I suspect it's more preferred by his customers.

    Interesting. I find that I prefer to keep it narrow in a triple, they tend to stay a bit floody no matter what you do.

    Any info on next drop? Only recently because interested in one, but once the bug bites I don't stop till I get it

    I haven't heard of Nichia 219C having a different beam angle vs 219B, but I didn't look very hard.

    Perhaps your old one has cree xpg2? That has a narrower beam angle.

    i think the 219C has an angle of 125 degrees vs 120 degrees of the 219B... i think.

    Yes. He could. They might be different materials.

    I believe all the pills are copper, except maybe the Aluminum. I'd swap it out and sell the Aluminum with the "upgraded" pill and emitters. Someone would love the 219C, and the pill upgrade.

    Not sure. I bought it from Luckyonion but the pm's have since been lost, so I suppose it's possible they're xpg2, but I kind of doubt it. I just tried to check, comparing with a triple xpg2 using a magnifying glass, but I can't tell without removing the optics in both lights. I may do that this evening, but probably not. lol

    I suppose I could have, although the aluminum doesn't have the copper pill. Anyway, the Ti TinyDC has already been sold.

    And I miss it already... what beautiful custom lights these are! I'm sure I'll buy another down the line.

    Oh boy!!! Many congrats to you, my friend! Yeah I have my order email for an XPL Hi 007 all typed and ready to go... I just haven't yet found the nerve to press send. I actually do have a rich uncle but he's so tight he only buys the ShadowHawk X800.

    Do you guys use the Wildemoon leather sheath to house your beloved TinyDC? Lemme know your thoughts on it. I'm on the fence (and lookout) for one.

    Finally got my Okluma, not one but two. A tiny Ti from the drop and a Brass from secondary. Both are amazing. No idea how to post pictures so you'll have to take my word. : )

    I have one, but had a different light in it... Good if you carry a lot of stuff in your pockets and you want to protect the light. It's a leave in case, not like a knife slip sheath.
