    Join the club. Not to be all sour grapes about being another loser in the flashlight game, but for some reason, the absolutely most desirable pieces are not subject to supply and demand. If something was made that was popular and neat, is exactly what you wanted, you often can't get it at any price. You can only look at the pictures, realizing they are out there somewhere beyond your reach, and you can twist until you are clean. If you discover someone that has one, and then make them like you, or make them happy, or acquire something they have been twisting over to trade, then you may find success.

    But if you need to complete your build with something that looks ok, and Ti VME is your unicorn, until then, you can think about what the hard anodized aluminum VME might look like if the ano were removed and the bare aluminum polished. There are pics of this mod out there, looks good IMO. And RPM still has Al bodies if there is some worry about purity or galvanic issues.


    I really like these bare RPM bodies. I was curious if any were considering anodizing tail threads. I have been reading about it, doesn't sound too tough, in theory. Among the Ti body owners out there... has this ever been popular? Or is it unheard of to consider doing anything but looking at and rubbing any part of your beloved Ti host! Seriously, though... how can you live without LOTC? TIA

    Let's say someone was just about to make some heads... would there more interest in a dropin style or a screw in "e-can" version.
    Or should such person just offer both?

    I shall consult with Tana and see what's best for a TripLed conversion.

    Yes, those. Floating this... how about a legit, internally bone-stock standard, but externally original RPM Ti/Cu/Cu3Zn2/Al incan E head? Maybe with a minimalist stylized tachometer representation deeply etched or stamped in a facet of the hex ant-roll surface. There's a few E heads in exotic metals available, but can't find alternate incan E reflector/bezel anywhere.

    Thanks for making me irrationally desire deeply, RPM. I would take at least one of everything, must instead wish and hope, and wait and see.

    If you made E-can style, have you selected a reflector?. Would it be interchangeable?.

    Looking forward to whatever you come up with.

    I think I´d prefer e-can (jus to make sure, that´s the McG and Aleph light engine, right?)

    That would be cool. I always thought custom makers should have a logo on their lights.... like Sinner now has.

    Good question...My Aleph style heads are pretty limited. I have McR-20 reflectors in the couple I have. The basic e-can heads I own have threads that allow the e-can to "float" vertically in the head and it causes the distance from the bottom of reflector to the emitter to vary. I'd like to make it so you can tighten the e-can in the head securely and still maintain the contact to the battery tube without a large gap between them. This assumes all the e-can are identical in height and the reflectors are the same.

    So lies the dilemma...
    Make the heads specifically for a certain reflector/e-can configuration.
    Or universal internals that allow for some adjustment.
    Or... Go the dropin route.

    This may end up going all 3 directions as there are pros and cons to each.
    Suggestions are welcome.

    I believe most of us use Aleph/Haiku LE’s so it would be nice to continue that way (McR-20 and e-can) allowing on the fly changing ecans.

    But i agree with night.hoodie if 1 or other option would be similar to old E head, fixed reflector (or similar) and using drop in as you like (Tad’s incan or Tana single led).
    That would be cool.

    I think this is the way to go for me.

    I vote for drop-ins. That way future upgrades aren't limited by the reflector that the head was designed to fit.

    Makes sense to do both...

    I've starting with the e-can style head using a McR-20 reflector. Prototypes being made now.
    This will at least get options out there for Aleph/E-series heads.
    After that, heads for drop-ins. I guess I'll need to buy some for R&D since I've never owned one!
    Suggestions anyone?

    Personally I'd love an Al e-series head that could house a Tana H17F single LED engine.
    Hello darkness my old friend,
    I've come to talk with you again...
    I liked neutral tints before they were cool.

    You have Haiku if i’m not mistaken so you’re covered with Aleph e-can style. Cheap and simple build from scratch or buying LE from Tana or datiLED.

    For drop-ins i’d suggest compatibility with Mac’s Tri-EDC, Okluma DC1, Hanko Machineworks, McBrat Deuce, Laulima Malihini and i think Deadwood custom works. They all use the same drop in/LE. McBrat has empty pills ready for all of the above and i think it could be great option for the other version.
    I hope you all thinking about this kind of drop in...
    If yes then building LuxRC, Dragon or a simple mule would be sweet as hell.

    UPDATE: are we gonna see new tailcaps also like you have in your photos...? Beside heads.

    Yes, but they are at the bottom of the list right now.
    May take a couple months to get there.
