Thread: XHP-70 Dragon reviews?

    Default XHP-70 Dragon reviews?

    Greetings! New to the forum and love it so far.

    Iím really interested in the XHP-70 Dragon. Are there any reviews of it?

    Iíve searched the forums, You Tube, Google, etc., and found nothing. I canít believe nobody has reviewed this cool-looking torch.

    if you can't find reviews for it it is unlikely to be a great light or is from a company with zero foothold in the industry. or it doesn't exist and like the gold folding Samsung fold phone you might not ever get what you order.

    Hey ERG! I don't have an XHP-70 Dragon. I do have a Nano-Lux (so opposite end of the spectrum, size wise). The machining is as good or better than the other custom lights I own (Ben Frelux's or Jordy at Focus Works). I think the old ARC lights and the MJP lights were machined by TnC, and some others, too. Really, just amazing high end work.

    All the TnC stuff kinda flies under the radar; finding reviews of any of it is hard. That written, most of the guys I know who own a bunch of customs speak highly of TnC. Hope it helps!

    Bazar, I strongly disagree. I've found only a few reviews of some of the best custom lights out there. They real problem is that Chris makes few, and distributes them only through Bob (both great guys, incidentally). Also, they are spendy compared to Emisar or Fenix or any production light. They are functional art, but like most art, kind of rare.

    Chris does top notch work. I have no complaints with any of them, and I have thousands of dollars worth of his work.

    As far as the review, are you talking about the 15270 mule, or 26650? I have both.

    Thanks for the feedback! I agree with Kevinm and Father; TnG's machining looks really good. I've seen some of their larger torches and they look like jewelry.

    Father, I'm referring to the torch that uses two 15270's. I think. I'm a bit new to flashlight addiction. Mainly into Surefires (I know...) Elzetta, etc., but now discovering some of these really cool esoteric builders. Anyway, here is the link to the Extreme Micro website for torch I'm trying to find out more about:

    You should not post about things you don't know anything about!
    Chris, is a very well known and respected member here and his work is top notch!

    I have XHP70 Dragon and i freakin love it! Machining and functionality are top notch. But i couldnít resist 2 weeks ago and i had to convert it to modern super thrower.
    SBT90.2 and Lexel 22mm pimped driver to run this beast hard.
    Not much tosay except, GET IT if you can. One of the best customs out there.

    The 2x15270 dragon is a mule, so an area light. Itís stupid bright in short bursts due to the battery capacity. Itís frequently one of my pocket lights. Given the extra step(s) Chris takes on his threads a well lubed head, and the extra length of a 2 cell body, it is easily manipulated with one hand. My only wish would be that it be in copper, or Mokume....just because those are my preferred metals.

    Youíre comparing apples and oranges. Especially with custom flashlights, thereís often very little info/reviews to go off of because they have niche appeal. Mainstream lights from mainstream manufacturers tend to get more attention. Thatís just the nature of the game.

    To OP, TnC makes good stuff. Theyíre a bit backwards tech-wise, but the machining on their lights is very good. Theyíre underrated because they have zero social media or marketing presence other than on here.
