    I really like my 18650 HD XT. But also really glad I grabbed a standard 18650 HD when they were available. Itís much better at closer work. Itís got great spill but also some pretty good reach to it. But when I want to really see whatís out there a ways I take my XT. The throw on that is nuts!

    I put this in another thread but thought it may be helpful for folks searching Malkoff stuff in general.

    Beamshots:

    M61N
    Elzetta Bravo on CR123 and 16340s
    M61HOT
    Surefire EDCL1-T on CR123 and 16340
    Hound Dog 18650 XT No Diffuser

    I donít know if people like these, but I would like to be able to find them better on the internet sometimes so, boom, posting them.

    More to come, can take requests if people do like them.

    I completely agree TG. The hotspot on the XT is big enough to see what you need, and adding the diffuser just neuters it too much. Rings donít bother me and that light surprises me every time I use it. Love the throw and small package. Great stuff for sure.

    I am considering the XT, or wait and see if an M61T with the same LED becomes available.

    Would the hypothetical new M61 with the new LED become the M61HOT and then the current HOT be pushed to M61T? Or think it would just be called the M61XT(D)?

    I think it would need a TIR instead of the OP reflector. The scout lights even have larger than typical heads with TIR lenses in them.

    I am interested for sure and would welcome such an addition.

    M61T flat white is in the works once the other LED is exhausted.
    I wish I knew when that time will come. seems soon.

    Can anybody take a side-by-side pic of the MDC 16650 and 18650 bodies? Curious about difference in diameter and in length.
    Hello darkness my old friend,
    I've come to talk with you again...
    I liked neutral tints before they were cool.

    Can someone who has a Wildcat V4 chime in and give me your opinion on it? Maybe a comparison between that and other versions. Thanks.

    The V4 throws further than the V6. It does have a hot spot with a wide flood. The V6 is all flood. I have a V1, V3, V4 and V6 Wildcats. My V3 is my most used Wildcat.
    V1 is a spot light. The V3 has 3 reflectors, the V4 has the same with a diffuser. It has a soft hot spot.

    I think most consider the triple-reflector WC to be the V2 ?

    I stand corrected. For some reason I thought I had a V3. Mine is a neutral, one of Malkoff's best tint's. Either way, it's a keeper.

    This is my understanding ...

    WCv1 = 4x optic
    WCv2 = 3x reflector
    WCv3 = 3x optic / diffuser
    WCv4 = 3x optic / diffuser / current bump
    WCv5 = 1x reflector
    WCv6 = 1x optic

    And yes, those WCv2 did have an incredible tint

    Yes, with the adapter you're looking at another .25 of a inch. It's a great size, but a poor design.

    I agree. Great size, love the stacked donut texture, but would have preferred it not have an adapter and be compatible with e-series tail caps. Maybe with the ďspring tunnelĒ like Surefires have.

    Basically the one Malkoff thing I am not super happy with. It works, but even with a good battery a hard enough bump will cause it to lose connection and if you have a multi mode head it can change modes.

    Havenít had any issue with single mode heads, so it isnít really a huge issue. But removing the adapter is irritating. Kinda want to pick the head you will use on it and that is the end of the story. Except that isnít how it goes in practice, not in my world anyway. A pair of scissors or the back of a knife blade make good ďwrenchesĒ for the adapter. It is an interesting design, and as far as an adapter a good one, but the adapter is annoying.
