Thanks shawn,

 

Although there was a dismal lack of support from members here, it was not the deciding factor to shut things down. I was doing quite well with IR illuminators for nightvision and developing product lines for other retailers, doing repairs on almost every manufacturers lights. what it was, I found myself spending every spare minute focused on this business and neglecting the important things in life: my wife, my daughter, my regular full time job, and myself. I can walk away knowing that I had a positive influence on the night hunting community.

1/1/2014 I decided to stop selling to the general public and just build lights for fun. As time allows I will build and post lights for sale.  I will no longer take orders for lights. I just don't have the time it takes to keep this business running, hold down a full time job and take care of all my other responsibilities and still find time to do the things I enjoy. I do intend to stand behind the products I have sold.

 

The last light that goes out the door as of today will set the bar even higher. I just finished a ZY-T13 with a red XPE-2 P3, drilled and tapped the housing for 2.5mm x.45 machine screws to attach the SinkPad bedded in a very thin layer of AS5, and the original circuit was modified to deliver .84A at the tail, the hardest I have ever driven an XPE-2 for a customer light. This new T13 puts out 51Kcd  with a stock reflector and 88.8Kcd with a 66mm aspheric! It has less than 2% drop in output after 10 minutes running. I can assure you that this is the farthest throwing RED LED hunting flashlight in the world with an ANSI beam distance of 595 meters(650 yds). This light will be mounted on a rifle killing predators in western New York for many years to come.

 

I would like to thank the TWO(2) members here that have supported my business since becoming a paid advertiser.

I have had several requests for lasers. custom lasers are just not safe in the wrong hands. Due to safety concern I do not build custom lasers.

Just a reminder guys. I also do modifications and repairs on all brands of lights. I can install the latest LED technology in almost any flashlight, most of the time doubling the light output of any given light. I spend alot of time getting the focus just right, change out circuit boards, and only use the highest brightness bin emitters. I recently built up a few t13's for a customer in Texas. Last years technology allowed me to achieve about 35,000 candela in green, this year I am using Cree's new XPE-2 emitter, a slightly different method of assembling the MCPCB to the heatsink and 99.9% pure silver thermal compound to assemble the lights and the output is now over 85,000 candela. A 200% increase in just a year! Drop me an e-mail,  we can discuss modifying an existing light or custom building one to your specifications.
