    The 3500K can reach up to 97 CRI. If you score the double beryl reflector you can call it 97.5.

    I'm not sure what the defaults are going to be, so definitely run down the list carefully to pick the options you want.

    The emitter section will look like this:

    Henry is only listing it at 95 because he didn't do the test himself.

    I just wish I had a fast internet connection. I live out in the country and my internet connection is an antenna on my roof pointed at a water tower several miles away. No cable or fiber optics for me. I'm lucky to get 5MB's. While my screen refreshes, all of the bronzes will be snapped up.
    Kind of wish there were a lottery instead of how fast you can click buttons. But I may get lucky.
    I did get to order the Titanium I wanted, so all is not bad.

    Maybe there is a place with good wifi you can go hang out at tomorrow or someone you know? That would solve the connection issue

    Don't forget the titanium run was slightly over double the size and a lot more expensive...which allowed us much more time. We had days to order the titanium, not 60-90 seconds

    Remember to wait until you receive your Bronze HDS order confirmation before you start celebrating...




    Good luck everyone!

    Just so everyone knows, the default on the custom page will be Rotary, NB35 emitter, Bronze, Sapphire lens, flush tail.

    That is just the default when the page opens so if you don't want a sapphire lens, you will need to click on UC glass, or you will get sapphire with the additional cost of sapphire. If you want a Tactical, you will have to click on Tactical, etc. etc. I just wanted to let you know the defaults.

    I had a feeling the 3500k would be the default.
    I already knew about the other defaults since you updated the site the other day

    If I'm quick enough today, it's a toss up on which emitter i would like on this light and the brass. 3500/4000 219b r9080 are the only emitters I'm missing
    So which emitter for which light??? Sure would be nice to see a finished piece from ea light...or at least the rod stock
    In my mind, they are somewhat similar but bronze should have red hue in it while brass should have yellow/gold hue

    I'm guessing hogo really gets a kick out of these limited runs....or maybe I'm the only helpless one that can't ever decide

    Actually the bronze alloy used here shouldn't be reddish. It's a silvery-gold color, probably lighter than the brass when it's polished. I think it patinas darker though, so it'll age very nicely

    We are not coating any of these with anything like some others do in order to keep the "shiny" color. They should patina nicely.

    Hogo, not sure if you can answer this, but how many 3500k emitters are available? I'm guessing at least 30-40?

    Or should i ask how many of the 3500k and 4000k?

    enough to cover the bronze run, but not enough to cover both the bronze and brass if everyone orders the same emitter... which is unlikely.

    order completed in 43 seconds, I think I made it

    I did one of the dumbest things ever too...I reset my modem, router, etc about 4 minutes till launch to ensure everything was smooth. It barely came back on in time...phew!!!
    There was some lag on the site though today and i have noticed lag through the paypal checkout all week going through hds systems.
