Im leaving out lights I no longer carry.
Here is the latest picture - at least, until I can get outside and take a real shot. It includes the newly-acquired Fenix PD40, Jetbeam WL-S4, and Armytek Barracuda
I think I'm going to be needing another shelf, soon lol
Lummi Raw Damascus
One of only eight pieces with no markings.
Left to Right:
ThruNite TN30 - 3 emitters - 2780 lumens - I actually use this light all the time, for photography, when I'm shooting EDC stuff, indoors. It really helps a lot.
Fenix TK51 - 2 emitters - 1800 lumens
Fenix TK41 - 760 lumens
Jetbeam WL-S4 (MT-G2 - 2600 lumens)
ThruNite Catapult V3 - 780 lumens (according to selbuilt CPF review).
Armytek Barracuda (XM-L2 T6 - about 1,100 lumens)
Maglite 6D with TerraLux - 3 emitters - 1,000 lumens (probably more like 600-650, but I couldn't leave it out of the mix. It's a piece of flashlight history, with an upgrade
How do you find the throw on the V3. Currently using a Olight intimidator sr51 which has a good throw but want something thinner but throws the same if not more.

Sorry to be so late in getting back to you.
My version of the V3 is 60 mm longer than your SR51, and only a few millimeters narrower (at the bezel). It uses an XM-L T6 emitter (The newer V3 is using an XM-L2 U2 emitter), so it's probably slightly more neutral in color, than your SR51s XM-L U2. I love the throw on my V3 (I bought the light, used, on CPF MarketPlace); but I seriously doubt it would out throw your SR51.
If you go go Candle Power Forums, look up Catapult V5 Review, and you'll find an excellent, and very thorough review done by selfbuilt (a Canadian light reviewer - his reviews are always very thorough). You'll find a bunch of very well-done beam shots, comparing the V5 with many other lights.
The newer version, though - the V5, is rated at 659 meters, and is substantially more powerful than my version. I wouldn't mind owning one of these, myself . Your SR51 is actually rated at 700 meters, though; you might get a better idea by checking out the gifs in the Candle Power Forums review, for a better idea of comparative beam shots.
Your SR51 is actually rated at 700 meters, though.
I hope this helps!
Edit - It looks like there are more than one version of the SR51. I was refering to the one with the original XM-L emitter. Is this the one you have?
Here's a pic of my 4Sevens/Foursevens lights. As always, I apologize for my poor photography skills:
Not huge, but covers all the bases.

My most used stuff
D25 A 2014 Ti on the way.
My most used in the house is the Xeno with XML t5 3C
Out and about the L10 twisty Nichia - with a lithium primary its very light weight.
Left - Fenix HP25
Right - Nitecore HC50
Only two of them, thus far - but the year ain't over, yet
I've grown particularly attached to the HC50. Great user interface, much lighter, in weight, than the HP25. Solid construction. The HP25 feels like a toy, by comparison.
Here's the full family right now:
Oh, yeah. Now, that's what I'm talkin' about
Looks like, still yet-to-be pictured:
EC21 (Did you end up getting this one?)
P12 (or was it the P16?)
This would make it a grand total (so far lol...famous last words) of 16 lights.
The EC21 is part of the TM16 order so I believe it's delayed with it unfortunately, unless battery junction ships it separately. The P36 is coming tomorrow!
The P12 is now on my light schedule to get with the rest of the ones its class that I'd like to try, namely the Fenix PD35, Olight S30RII, and the Thrunite TN12.

Not pictured - Fenix PD40 (ceiling-bounced, to take this picture lol)
Proof you've been on this forum lol
