I am going to get a new monster. I want a thrower but which?
What sort of output is this at now lumen wise?
The ThruNite TN32 seems to be the best affordable thrower at the moment.
I personally like the Niwalker Vostro BK-FA01 more. It might be worth a look, too.
U mean an tn31 with a xml2

No, the TN31 with XM-L2 is about 20% brighter than the XM-L Version (1376 lm vs. 1147 lm). The TN32 (with XM-L2) is even better (1700 lm).
The two TN31s are measured around 110 000 lx to 130 000 lx, the TN32 around 200 000 lx.
The Niwalker Vostro BK-FA01 (XM-L2) is between the TN31 and the TN32: ~1280 lm, ~160 000 lx.
The best I can tell is around 3200 lumens 180,000 kcd
Anyone get any new lights to show off? I got this today.. Not a light though
Victorinox Sprit X
But it is shiny!!
Rigid duallys-- rigid sr20 --- rocklights
These lights are very interesting.
I have a xeno E03 and with 16340s it is a pretty bright small package 96.5x21.5mm, 430 Lum or so package says.
Can anyone suggest a 16340 light that's as small but a super thrower?
Single 16340 lights usually use that cell to be as compact as possible which tends to mean they use a shallow reflector.
Google turns up that both Maratac and Eagletec claim to put a deep reflector on their single 16340 lights but hopefully someone with actual experience with these lights will turn up.
The only Maratac I have is the Copper CR123.. Great little light... My wife loves pulling it out at work.. All the little male cubicle dwellers are green with envy. LOL
My Monster Light: Surefire M6LT Guardian. Used for almost two years now.
Thanks again @xbanker for making this happen.
FYI: Surefire listed an updated 1200 lumens version of the Guardian in their 2014 catalog.
(Relatively) small monster: Olight R40 Seeker (1100 lumens)
My little monster;
DIY XML zoomie running at 4.2A. Still has not exploded so the heatsinking must be doing a decent enough job!
Yes there's bigger lights, yes there's brighter lights, but as far as pocketable rockets go this one does qualify as a monster in my book
It's been a while. I'm resuscitating this thread lol:
I generally don't need anything this high-powered; but once in a while, it becomes useful:
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
ThruNite Catapult V3 - 780 lumens (according to selbuilt CPF review).
Maglite 6D with TerraLux - 3 emitters - 700 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
Looking forward to seeing your pictures!
If there's a beast light on your wishlist, please share which one(s).
For me, it's some lights like these:
EagleTac MX25L3C - this one has six Nichia 219 emitters. Amazing output, and the beautiful Nichia 219 emitters.
Nitecore TM26 (I'm a huge Nitecore fan)
I've really been loving this Nitecore EA11. Tremendous power (900 ANSI lumens). Not-so-fantastic run times, but to have this kind of power in something this tiny - incredible! Nice user interface, too
I only have a few but I love them, all single emitter Vinh specials;
Fenix PD22vn - current boost only, not really a monster but Vinh touched it so it counts
Fenix PD35vn - PDT cool - http://www.candlepowerforums.com/vb/showthread.php?384781-WTS-PD35vn
SupBeam K40vn - He replaced this with the K50vn so it looks like he took the thread down, it's got some killer throw though! Lux numbers from kengps on cpf K40vn is 402K at 30 seconds. 396K at 1 min.
SupBeam K40Mvn - jmpaul320 lumen sphere test 3928 lumens@ turn on http://www.candlepowerforums.com/vb/showthread.php?385992-K40Mvn-(Must-Have)&highlight=k40

My budget "monsters". They're more than enough for me, really. No idea how many lumens they put out, but they're plenty bright for me to play with.
Even though I'm perfectly happy with my current lights, there are a couple of big lights that I wish I owned, like Nitecore TM26, Thrunite TN32 or Olight M2X UT Javelot. To be honest, either of the throwers is possible at some point, but the Nitecore is just too expensive for me.
Edit. Just noticed the Fandyfire is partly out of focus... ah well. I'm too lazy to redo it and the light is gone too.
