Thread: The Malkoff Front Porch

    I've been running one with a Scout head for a while now... even slimmer and I'm not accidentally unscrewing my VME open instead of de-activating the light (which is probably more because of my clumsy fingers than any sort of VME's fault).

    Really glad we got a space to host a whole range of topics as they relate to Malkoff Devices. I think this has been super great to all my fellow junkies, although significantly less kind to our wallets....
    I'm actually on the opposite side of things. I learned about Malkoff because there were so many great threads in the LED forum... by moving it to it's own (pretty hard to find) section we are likely limiting the number of new flashaholics who discover then buy Gene's stuff. The odds of a casual user stumbling upon this forum is very unlikely.

    I've also noticed a certain amount of competition when it comes to the limited edition products I have never seen before with Malkoff. The feel of it is more like when companies do limited edition "drops" and not everyone gets one and a lot of people are "left in the dark". I have an extensive Malkoff collection that goes back a decade or so... if anyone asks about one I might have I will certainly post a pic or speak to my experience with it, but it is never meant to be exclusionary, which some of the posts here have felt like recently.

    Maybe limited edition is not the right term, but I mean when you are supposed to enter your name on a thread to express interest and then officially sign up on a separate thread to purchase. For the life of me I could not find the LLLL sign up thread when it was live, just the interest one. Probably just an error on my part. I was thinking they might be called limited edition because they were individually numbered and not available to the general public?

    Perhaps you misunderstand this process......I don't know what you would have us do differently? Would you prefer to not have them at all? The group buys that I run in such fashion are done specifically because there is niche interest in an item in a special flavor. In order to get that product to come to life, we need at least 20 units to be sold prior to going into it. Only once we have at least 20 spots/units "spoken for" can I go to Gene and say "please make X quantity of THIS with THAT".


    As much as I would love the ability to order $2000 of M61 dropins, that's a mighty big bag of dice to roll hoping everyone will want to pay for them.
    The M61 LLLL GB in the sounding board has been up for close to 6 months and only just recently got to the point where launching a group buy is feasible. At the same time, the only place to host group buys are on the dedicated Group Buy forum.



    That being said- anyone can sign up, there are no holds-barred in who can sign up. But I feel like what you are asking for is either for Gene to host all these options on his site (which he has said he won't do and this is understandable) OR for me to make my own website/business and advertise this as my own thing which I simply don't have time or resources for.

    Yes I think the GBís are definitely handled well. The Malkoff threads are NOT hidden.Just in a different section. And when a GB is put in place anyone that signed up gets one. I wonít even begin to get into how another VERY popular flashlight company On here does it as I will definitely get a time out and will Probably have to make a trip to the ER😁.

    Iím not sure why some have said that the Malkoff threads are hard to find? Are they? Is there different formats on the forum? They donít seem like theyíre out of place to me of course by now I subconsciously go do it without even realizing how I got here 😁😁

    Iím confused as to how you said you could never find the group buy? I went back and read the thread and dot literally linked it under a post you made saying you couldnít find it. Are you using the website or the app? The app on iPhone gets screwy for me sometimes and I never see replies or links until I refresh everything. Gets frustrating at times

    I was mostly concerned if there was a real issue finding Malkoff threads/ Group buys. Or if they were actually coming off as somehow exclusionary, I definitely have elitist tendencies and that can sometimes come out in text as being an ass, but I certainly don't intend anything to come off as such here.


    Since we are on the subject....


    here's a link to the M61N LLLL SST-20 round 2 Group Buy!

    When was the last time the front porch went two weeks without a post?!!? Man oh man! Tonight I'll ready my Malkoff Battery for a show of force!


    Unrelated, as my brother recently purchased his first house, I equipped him with an MD3 w/ +1 MDW extender, M91bN. Loaded with two 18650s but also equipped with a few CR123s. Tons of options for virtually any common cell, superb reliability, ultimate "What's in my yard?" light IMO.

    Actually, I'm starting to give most people close to me Malkoffs. I'm getting to the point where I'm content with what I have, but not content with what my family has/ uses. I want them all to have the guarantee of light that I believe Malkoff delivers on. Will likely be setting up the parents with a MD2 + M61 or M61HOT H/L (+USBrechargable 18650) and a G3 running a LLLL loaded with CR123s.

    Has my elitism gone too far? IDK. Probably

    Wife impressed a movie crew at a night shoot in the desert with her mdc sho cool. Not my favorite light but she loves it because she hates any sort of ui and itís always in her bag. Gave my son an old beat up Surefire 6p with a m61 cool so heís got something besides his phone. My daughter loves her mdc with m31 low for dog walks. Iím sure Iíll have to mail batteries to my kids...

    Face it we're the outliers. Your kids are with the majority!! Not that that has anything to do with what's right, lol.
