    Crazy to think the ol' convoy s2 host is putting out 5000 lumens and 70kcd. I remmeber it was just a few years ago we were impressed with it putting out 1000 lumens and 20kcd.

    Iím curious to know the numbers to the 4x W2.1 version. My d4svn with w2 has slightly better numbers than my kr1vn with sbt90. The d4svn and kr1vn has same size reflector. I also like the beam of 4x better, itís a bit tighter.
    So maybe the w2.1 may have slight better numbers in this xxIvn....

    Agreed! That is a configuration Iíd be interested in, pending some performance numbers.

    Sorry on the delay on the XXI. None of the XXI shipped yet as I decided to order 20mm DriverVN4 that is exclusive to this light only. Will give better performance than using my 17mm version in this light. Drivers should be here soon.

    Same peak performance but MUCH better driver cooling and thus better everything else.

    I have killed may be 12 SBT90 LEDs up until this point. Each time I kill one it ruins my mood for at least 1/2 hour.

    This is what it takes to eliminate the rings

    You'd think those slots would create artifacts, not do the opposite

    I blacked out the bottom of the reflector. Killed all of the rings.

    Must be an illusion in the reflection..
    At 4 & 8 o'clock, looks like tear drop shaped openings
    I do see how you blackened the reflector around the emitter opening, that makes sense (:
