    What's wrong with the 600w IV Plus? Is it the limited run-time on max? I'm okay with the limited turbo time, since I don't use it much at that output. Tint could be better, though it's okay for a domed Cree.

    There's nothing significantly wrong with it; but I could sell it and use that money towards a 700 - I'd like a light with 2170 in the near future. I also like to maintain a minimal collection without redundant lights...
    I feel like owning a 64, 600, and 700 would render the 600 as an inbetweener that won't get much actual use. The only niche I could see it filling is a pocketable bike light for night rides - but if I'm on the trails, I won't need to pocket the light and if I'm in the city, I only need a bike light to make cars aware of me (only 50 lm or so needed). So even then, I could switch between my 64w HI and (future) 700. Yes, the Plus is perfect for both these tasks, but I don't need a $100 bike light when I have several other flashlights.
    Also, going for walks in the evening, I think a little more real estate on the light would make it nicer to hold.
    The Plus's tint isn't great indoors but on it's own it's not objectionable, but that slight greenish cast in comparison with my HI and H600Fc is unpleasant. I think I got lucky with my 600Fc, it's definitely a bit yellow but no green at all. Apparently. I can live with a yellow tint, not green.

    The ideal SC700 for me (which I don't believe could currently exist because I don't think this LED is being produced) would be a SC700w with a XHP70 HI.
    Right-angle is the right angle!

    AFAIK, there is no XHP70 HI. So, Zebralight would have to slice their own domes, and I just don't think they'll do that.

    Based on other XHP70's I have, I'm not sure you'd be happy with the tint of one of the regular "w" ones. So, the SC700d might be a better option for you, and it already exists of course.

    But, yeah, big overlap with the 600 Plus.

    It may look disproportionate, but I think it fits in my (on the larger size) hands nicer than the smaller models. The curve along the body side of the head feels nice to my thumb.

    I'd have preferred a 700c, of course, since I buy 3000K whenever it's available. If I had to have only one 18650 ZL with the 700 I guess it'd be a Mk IV HI model, because the beam is so nice. If lumens was less important and I wanted to carry one clipped (I hate the 600 clip) then I'd go for the 64 LE with the LH351D, since it's the other one with the nicest beam (short of an old SC62w).

    As it is, I have no interest in having any less Zebra in the house, and am foolish with my money when it comes to certain things. I still have no headlamp, though that may change with a H53Fc... though what I really want is a H53c LH351D 4000K (the H503 LH is a tease). I have a SC53c, so if the frosted lens is enough to clean up the Cree rainbow, then the H53Fc would be pretty good. I don't have any "F" ZLs either.

If you want range you're not going to be using either of these lights....
    Does the frosted lens do a good job of taming the "Cree rainbow" ?

    Well I do now have a frosted ZL, the H53Fc, and I don't see any Cree Rainbow at all. So, guessing it'd help a lot with the SC700. Anyone who has one, beam pics?

    Anyone found a perfect holster for it?

    For my SC600-series lights, Iíve been using a Manker holster. I like that it takes marginal extra space in addition to just the light.

    A holster could be nice to keep it on a belt, and also for protecting *other* things when throwing it in a backpack.

    Just recently ordered and eagerly awaiting it, but I suspect itís larger than what Iíd want to pocket-EDC.

    Thors Custom Leather makes flashlught belt holsters.
    Reliability, NW and moonlight mode, the most important factors in a light

    Never mind. I thought the SC700d (non floody) was back in stock. I was mistaken.

    I have the 700d
    I feel its pretty floody already.. I imagine the film on the f smooths out any edges on the hot spot.... maybe a bit more even in it's flood0-nesy with a little less throw?

    I am more than happy with the 700d...

    Jim, Almost always get the regular version -over the long haul youíll appreciate the versatility. You can always put some scotch tape over the lens for temporary flood and take it off when you donít need it. Also, there are diffusers sold as flashlight accessories that you look for.

    The Fd beams are super smooth&floody, really nice if you want the light for close distance work mainly. Fd also mixes the beam more which means less tint shift if you are a "white wall hunter".

    Backorder means that Zebralight will ship a week or 2 after you order. I find that popular models never leave the backorder status. So, if you wait, you'll probably be waiting a long time. You can always send them a message to find out the real wait. When I did last month, it was 1-2 weeks for the model I was looking at. They shipped it about 10 days after I ordered.

    I would like to see more reviews of the fd model...

    So, I ordered the SC600w Mark IV Plus today. To tide me over.

    Iíll also be able to play with the scotch tape filters in the mean time.

    Thanks again all!!!

    I'd probably get the SC700 in the floody version if I just wanted to use it as a flashlight. I prefer the clear lens mostly so I can look at the big beautiful LED. It throws so much light into the spill that it's useless as a thrower anyway. About the only place the clear lens would really help is using it off a balcony or something where the spill wouldn't just bounce back in your face. Even so, at the beach, the water in the air reflected a lot of light back. You could see the waves were lit up, but the air got in the way of seeing them well.

    Just curious, do you think zebralight will use the sbt-90.2 in the SC700d sized host? Not sure if possible but the performance might be rather impressive if able to work.

    Ive been using a 'rotating' holster on my strong belt side. I was using a 'sea horse' designed Rofis to project light in my path .
    It will do the job.

    Just ordered my new SC700d.Looking forward to getting it.

    Anyone know how long the wait time before order shipment is,if the light is listed as backordered?
    (this is direct from zebralight.com).

    Ended up canceling the zebralight.com order..(they said the backorder time was 4 weeks..I'd rather not wait that long.)

    Ordered from gpknives.com.They'll have my order shipped out within the next 2 days.
    (had to order the battery separately from a different site,but it's worth it.)

    Update:new SC700d is on its way from gpknives.com via FedEx.
    Estimated delivery date is Monday the 17th.

    The batteries,from orbtronics.com..are expected to arrive sometime tomorrow.

    (which is impressive,considering Orbtronics is located in St.Petersburg,FL.)
