Thread: Playing with MONSTERS + beamshots

    Default Playing with MONSTERS + beamshots

    Here I am getting ready to go outside and fire these up! In one hand is my X990 and the other is my Fivemega Fat Mag85. These are my two brightest lights (for now). [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]



    Just thought I'd share my happiness!

    Hahaha! Nice to know there is a fellow weight lifter / flashaholic on CPF! [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img]

    I don't have any mega lights, but I do have some insanely bright Cyan, Green, & Red-orange mega-throwers. I haven't tried using them shirtless yet though.

    What is the fivemega light? I vaugly remember something about that. Is it just a larger head replacement for mags? I'll have to search for that one or if you got a link to a thread....

    You can order the head for the Fivemega light here and the body options here.

    I just received my X990 today and it was a blast illuminating my whole street and the houses at the end (about 300 yards away). The FM Fat Mag85 can also light the homes up down the street but not quite like the X990.

    I bet your neighbors love you now! hehe. Thanks for the links. I take it yours is WA 1185 bulb? How many lumens is that? The fivemega light is pretty awesome looking. What's the runtime on it?

    EDIT: Yeah, I just searched and no beamshots. I wonder what it does with a 5W luxeon? Or better yet, 3W? I be it would be a really really small spot then.

    Its a little foggy tonight or I would have made some beamshots. If the weather lightens up tomorrow night I will post some shots of the Fivemega Fat Mag85 and X990. The FM Fat Mag85 has a runtime of about 1hr 15min and is rated at 1233 lumens. The X990 has a runtime of around 1hr 10 minutes and is rated at 3200 lumens.

    How much do you think the FM85 weighs?

    My guess would be 6 pounds. I think it's all metal.

    I'll have the beamshots posted up of Fivemega's Fat Mag 85, X990, and Thor 10MCP. I will not be in these pictures and neither will my 4 nipples. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]

    I suck at taking pictures at night holding the camera but here is my feeble attempt at it. The FM Fat Mag85 was in spot mode but the distance was far enought so you couldn't see the hot spot. Oh well, here is the neighbor I always piss off...



    I'll try later for some better pictures. The Fat Mag85 spot can be better enjoyed at a closer range I think. I measured the distance with my GPS.

    And i'll say it again, for $25 ya cant beat the Thor [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img] Granted the X990 is very worth the price,, look how pretty white/blue that beam is!!!

    Beam shots look good. I am interrested in that Mag85. What's you opinion on it, particularly in the medium to long distances?

    And...thanks for being a good sport! You are a fun guy.

    Well, we really can't compare it to the X990 or Thor because they are more like spotlights. The FM Fat Mag85 with the 3" head out throws any 'flashlight' I can think of (thats readily available or easy to make).

    For example, I was driving down a dark highway in the middle of the desert. There was no moonlight or streetlights or other cars around. It was DARK. There was a house about 400+ yards off the road, maybe a little further. It had all it's lights off and when I did a 'drive-by' with the Mag85, I could see the whole house and vehicles in the driveway.

    In my opinion, it is a great light for medium to long distance illumination. You can use it for close if you twist the reflector to flood but even then, ITS BRIGHT!

    I think I was a dog in a previous life. That may explain the extra set of teats. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/yellowlaugh.gif[/img]

    Maybe you could send it to me to do a shootout of lights that size. I have just about everything in its range, M6, M4, 9ANT, Streamlight SuperStinger, miniHIDs, etc.
    Let me know what you think,

    Nice beam shots also, the M*g 85 does a good job at 600' compared to the other monster lights.
