Thread: The PhotonX Tala

  1. #1

    Default The PhotonX Tala

    Hey, I'm Ozy and I'm making a light!

    This is a project I've been working on for a while with Leo Maquiniana of LM Toolworks, it's an alternate implementation of the CWF Dragon Driver. Has a mule ring of 8 secondary LEDs for a super bright and usable floody beam, that's clean with no artifacts from the optic.
    Paired with a 20mm reflector you'll get a punchy throw, a prototype with an Olson Flat White LED reached out to almost 290 meters, in a pocket sized light, WITH a bright secondary flood beam!


    Here's a pic the with blue secondaries, it will also be available in other colors and super high CRI white

    This is will be the first in what will hopefully be a series of lights with flood rings, at all price levels. We're still in early development but It will launch as proper custom one offs, handmade by Leo, and then I will work to bring the design to production at more affordable prices.

    Who needs to see the light at the end of the tunnel when you have friends on CPF?

    Great! I’ll be watching!
    I only fear that if something happens to me, my wife will sell all my stuff for what I told her I paid for it.

    The most popular myth of Tala is that she is one of the three daughters of Bathala to a mortal woman. Her sisters include Mayari, the goddess of the moon and Hanan, the goddess of morning. She is known to have supported the creation of the Tagalog traditional constellations. Tala used light spheres or orbs to ferry men to safety at night
    Leo is Filipino and I figure "orbs", rings, same thing

    That's awesome, good to know!

    So far there's only a single proto in aluminum but the design is very far from final so I can't share it yet. A brass proto will be made next that will probably be a lot closer to reality.
