    So are we talking $300 for a half trit tail, to $425 for a full tritted out tail cap?

    I already sent a set to https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCIO...rj9GpIFhszkWoQ

    I would love to send out more for exposure but I cant afford it at the moment. Stupid light is too expensive ahhah. I am kinda hoping the 7075 will survive the hand gun caliber rounds so when I get it back I can get with my military friend to have it run over with one of their big truck. If its blown up then oh well. Entertainment anyways.

    I have sold so many P60vn lately all of the sudden. Especially LilV and Quad W2. SLN is expensive so not all can get in on it but it sure spike demands for P60vn all of the sudden. Its like a sudden revive of interest for this platform at least from Sky Lumen point of view.

    I have like 20 18 SLN order that I have to build and ship ASAP. Some are from batch 1 and some form Batch 2. There are 12 of 60 total unspoken for all together left at the moment. I will list what serials they are after the near year. People spent way too much money this Christmas so I am more busy than usual.

    I think that may be the most well done camouflage that I have ever seen done on a light. BEAUTIFUL!

    Will be all SLN assembly for the next several days. Hopefully I can get them all out before 2020. :-)

    The Clear Anodized did not look "polished" although I hand polished them all...At least its a very tough looking even matte look.

    Great pictures, Vinh! I think the clear anodized look fantastic. It's very unique and unlike any other flashlight finish I've seen. They almost have a transparent pearl look.

    I'm liking that finish more and more! Maybe for 2021 on my second SLN!

    For me, I prefer chrome like finish but it's not a big deal. I did hope the inside of the bezel part would be as mirror like as possible because I'm planning to do a 12x mule. Just waiting on Bluesword's dream bin LH351D.

    The bezel being not angled will not refect meaningful lumen OTF. I think the same can be said even if the walls were angled.

    I love the finish... even more than the camo. My favorite so far.

    Anyone can polish aluminum and get a polished aluminum finish. This finish is something special.

    Since it should be pretty easy to do, can you pop in a 12x pill in the black, raw polished, and clear anodized host and post some numbers?

    When I bought the E21A modded Tiaras from Clemence, he offered the option to add white potted compound but he warned that the white compound is more reflective and makes the moonlight modes much brighter and might be too bright for some customers liking.q

    Please do not ship mine yet. I want you to ship it along with the pill but I haven't found the emitter yet.

    Received it and it is a good bit larger and chunkier than I imagined. Looks more like a 26650 light. Feels very solid and substantial in the hand, which I can see why it can sustain so much abuse. The mass should allow this to handle turbo a very good amount of time though I haven't tested that yet. Given the thickness and weight, I doubt a copper version would be feasible.

    I took some measurements with the Texas Ace Lumen Sphere calibrated with Maukka lights. Readings taken at 2 seconds from startup:

    Highest mode 5206 lumens 7583K DUV -0.0029 CRI 73.9 R9 -4.1 R12 46 Rg 68 Rf 97
    2nd mode 1142 lumens 7373K DUV -0.002 CRI 73.6 R9 -6.5 R12 45.5 Rg 68 Rf 97
    lowest mode 32 lumens 6592K DUV 0.002 CRI 76.8 R9 -3.1 R12 45.4 Rg 73 Rf 95

    The P60 pill is a lil vortex with 8x XP-L HI in the outer ring & 4x XP-L HD at the center. Battery was a fully charged 30T. Keep in mind the TA lumen tube measures mules and wide flooders lower than throwers. Actual lumens should be 6k+.

    Vinh, I'm wondering if you know where to find a white or clear o-ring to replace the black one between the bezel and glass?

    I am building a series of my favorite P60vn for my personal SLN collection. I will finally make an official review video for it.

    After some clarification between the shop and I I found out that the Torture sample was a 7075 sample not a 6061. I will clarify this in the video. Guess what my favorite 4 P60vn will be for the video!

    7075 Twisty tail is in line for production. I am huge fan of mechanical simplicity so I am very impatient to have this tail cap in so I can carry it.

    (Love the 47 BoltVN for its mechanical operation too!)

    I am also considering a 6061 Chinese version of the SLN to drop cost. Expect a weaker metal, less strong anodization, laser prints instead of machine engraving, but may be a bit better heat sinking. From my experience Chinese 6061 doesnt seem as strong as USA 6061 but who knows...this version will of course cut the price of the host from $250 to about $150. Please let me know ur input on this decision/matter.

    Also "Made in USA" is engrave on our current version. If the Chinese version is made should I also laser engrave "Made in China" on it? I personally would like to represent and be proud of my product for whatever it is but this is not a common practice in the flashlight world. Please give me some inform ethical and business advice.
