    Ginseng,

    What if we send him the ugly duckling?

    Especially if he is going to use that Havis Shields light?

    Word just in...

    KENSHIRO will be lend his expertise in this production...

    On a side note, the X990 is holding out for more charging time (wants 6 hours, but we only offered 4 hours) and THOR is trying to qualify as the only incandescant in the field of competitors....


    Bring on the THOR HID !!!

    I second that notion. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/Christo_pull_hair.gif[/img] Living close would be good. Oh ya, let the Havis-Shields in!!! It would be the deciding factor on my purchase of one of them if I could see it in action!!! Good Luck!!!

    How about including an M6 HOLA for comparison?

    MrTedBear,

    Do you want a couple incandescents?

    If so, the boosted Thor from Newbie and the "Ugly Duckling" might be fun for you.

    However, they will BOTH toast the 35 Watt HIDS.

    No doubt, Bill. I have my money on the Sleeper for overall output winner. The "Fugly Duckling" as #2 in output and throw (unless the second body is ready) and the HID Blitz as the throw champ. The HID Thor is most definitely a contender as well. The Maxa, well, that's a throw-machine in its own class.

    It would satisfy me to no end to see some new examples of CPF-member work crush production lights.

    Wilkey,

    The second body could be finished in a couple hours of work, but I need those extra bulbs

    The "Fugly Duckling" won't have that supertight beam, but probably is actually more workable than several of those lights, while maybe not as convenient.

    The Maxa and the Sleeper should blow everything else AWAY, though.

    Did you have the Sleeper at the meet?

    Bill

    The Sleeper was not there. Would have been cool though.

    I'll get my last two bulbs out to you. When you need more, I'll get you the best site to order from. Only a few bucks a piece.

    Is there a thread for the thor HID mod? I'm on Newbie's list for a couple of boards but i'd also like to do an HID mod if not too difficult.

    Didn't see any answers as to what the Croc light is?

    Gentleman:

    The light to "beat" isn't an HID, but instead a lowly incan aka Ken-4.

    You know the Ken4... 24 volt / 250 watt / 10,000 lumens in a nifty banana vector case....


    Let the games begin....

    Hey,

    Incans are never lowly...except when they're stock. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img] The guys who were at PhotonFest3 saw the 10kLu power that BWaites built. It was cute and fugly but just eye-crushingly bright. 25 minutes worth of stunning. However, if the Sleeper makes an appearance, it will reign. Let there be no doubt about this.

    The state of the art marches on and still, in terms of portable lighting, incan is a very viable technology. But even I acknowldge that yesterday's one-off, cutting edge may be today's "PayPal Sent."

    Still, that doesn't mean showdowns like this aren't fun. In fact, I wish I could attend.

    Wilkey

    I have a Croc 1 coming before noon Saturday! I can't wait.

    I have three HIDs of my own as well as a Thor to compare. We'll have to compare notes.
