    Going to send those out when I have the dropins in-hand, that way shipping costs will be accurate. Priority flat rate box is going to be ~ $8.30, if we do first class bubble mailer, it's around $6.20 as of last week, IIRC. International will be using a flat rate box, well padded, and using a reasonable tracked method that isn't hugely expensive. If anyone prefers specific shipping, when I send PMs regarding payment, please reply to said PM with what you want to do.

    All in all it's a fun hobby, and let's remember we are supporting a American made mom and pop shop.

    I almost signed up for one of these to go with my warm module but I knew I wouldnít use it as much. For some reason the only lights I care about tint in are my low output lights. Reminds me of my incans. : D

    There is a fair amount of work and coordination that goes into a GB. A good portion of the work is actually getting everything packed up shipped out. In the end though, it is amazing to see how thrilled everyone is once the get the dropin. I still smile every time someone posts in the M91 thread.

    Thanks dot (again) for putting these together.

    No problem! Yeah not so bad thus far. ~40 packages isn't so bad, especially since you can do everything online. I certainly have to do far worse medial tasks at work, like opening 200+ clamshells just for a quick shot of a foam ball....

    I must agree the excitement that builds around this is by far worth the effort alone. I too look forwards to seeing where these end up and where they pop up over time!

    I also see that he hasn't been on since the 25th; I do imagine that he will get current when he is back on the forum.

    I would be happy to facilitate if I can; PB, feel free to use the 'report post' button (triangle w/ exclamation point, on your own post (# 122 in this thread, here).

    In the post report window that comes up, please provide your email address plus a brief explanation for whichever CPF staff member happens to see your post report.
    This way no email addresses need to be posted on the open forum, which we generally try to avoid if we can.
    I would be happy to be an intermediary to facilitate communication w/ the OP for this Group Buy.

    -----

    Worst-case dotCPF, when I have a little time I can pull up his CPF registration email address and contact him that way.

    Best regards,

    Kestrel,

    Thanks very much. I'm not terribly worried. Technically only 3 days into me asking for payment, granted late. Gene doesn't ask for payment until he's made them, it seems, so it's not a huge rush.

    Regardless, thanks again!


    For clarity- I'm placing the order with Gene regardless.

    If PB doesn't kick in the money, let me know please, I will cover his drop in and donate it to you for all the work you've done.

    Much appreciated tg, it is a largely thankless task.

    We try our best, but it is literally impossible to please everyone.

    SO

    Just got off the phone with Gene. They will be rolling on these shortly, but something came up with the 4000K....


    We had all talked about using his stock 4000K since we all liked it, but he didn't really have enough for the full run. Gene discussed how he was going to try out some of Luminous's SST-20 emitters and see how they fare in the current reflectors. Gene mentioned that he can get more reliable binning and they have more reliable stock than CREE seems to. They are very very close in size/shape to the XP-G2, and these are 95 CRI.

    I waffled a bit, but ultimately told him let's try the SST-20s. He's going to give it a shot, and see how they look. If there are any glaring issues we will not use the SST-20s and go back to the XP-G2 4000Ks I have already sent him. So this might be the very first SST-20 Malkoff build!

    Hopefully this is OK for everyone. I think that going with Gene's SST-20 we have a more reliable shot at a better overall tint and 95CRI at lower output would be stellar for visual clarity.

    I love the idea of a high cri LLLL, I just hope the tint of the sst-20 isnít too greenish since the output is so low. Iíll be happy with whatever is decided tho
