Thread: Pre-Sale for 303 Stainless Rotary/Tactical on Monday June 29th

    Default Pre-Sale for 303 Stainless Rotary/Tactical on Monday June 29th

    ATTENTION:

    Special Metal Run: 303 Stainless Steel HDS Rotary




    Stainless Steel HDS Rotary/Tactical is going up on Monday the 29th at noon Tucson time for the pre-sale. These will ship very quickly after the BeCu pre-sale lights ship.

    BeCu pre-sale orders get first pick of these emitters:

    Nichia 9080 219B in 3000, 3500, 4000, and 4500k

    Samsung HiCRI 5000k and 5700k

    SS40 (which is being pulled today from the HDS website)

    What is left will be available on a first come first served basis for the Stainless Steel lights.




    It looks as though demand will be high and there is a limited number (42). Fast fingers and good internet connection should help.

    I apologize for the short notice but my notice was extremely short on this and if it doesn't happen now, it won't happen for years.

    So if we try to nab one of these, we pick an emitter from the list and then later you contact us to find out which emitter we actually want?

    We will have the Nichia 219B 9080's up, but if you later want to switch to a Samsung once we have completed testing and have good data on them, you will be able to switch.

    Ok thanks. Now I have two days to talk myself into one of these. I keep imagining how that lovely snakeskin feel knurling on a full SS light will feel in the hand.

    Wow. Hope Iím in. It seems Santa will not be empty handed this year. To me the SS will be the ultimate tool HDS. Hope to be able to switch to a Samsung emitter of some sort down the line.

    I am quite sure that there will be sole left after let say 24h. The Bronze Rotary was the only on ethat was sold out during pre-order. The Brass ~10 were left for the regular sale when the pre orders were shipped.... My guess it it will be the same with SS, even if SS is great, cool, 1000% indestructable....

    I was surprised that i wasn't able to choose from any of the nichia emitters when preordering. But i'm guessing that i can switch to another led later on?

    That was my understanding, that at first the BeCu Folks is allowed to choose the LEDs, and than the SS, all choose in order they did the pre-order...

    Given the short notice, I would agree with this. Still glad it happened and it's a good thing I waited on pulling the trigger on a Sliver tail (only) Rotary.

    I ordered one also. 325 NLT with raised button and sapphire lens, though Iím not sure if I want to go with a different LED. In any case. That knurled SS will feel awesome in hand.

    I did the same sans the sapphire lens. Most of my lights are in the 4000K rage and I thought the 5000K is a nice match for the SS. I may switch to the 5000K Samsung.

    Do you pay when ordered, or just before it ships?

    Thanks

    You pay when you order. Therefore you have the base price of $560, later when the lights will be shipped and the remaining lights will be offered that the base price is $670.
