    Welcome to the club… lol
    I hear you on that.. Luckily they came through. I probably won't be ordering from them again just because I like accessible comms. However I am excited to have it and finally try it out. Thanks again!
    I agree, Cu has way more character and much more fun to watch develop.

    I'd be interested to hear how you like the Krytox AndrwTNT , after you have tried it for a while, especially since it sounds like you might've gotten a few other ones to compare ....

    To me, it seems to work especially well on titanium threads, since I really don't like it when those get gritty or start to gall.

    Perhaps it's because of the mix of oil and grease ?

    Post or convo (PM) , is fine :)

    It has a coppery smell. At first. And then the patina starts to set in and all the joy and magical powers from within begin to emerge and you start finding money, and everyone smiles and says hello, and even that girl (you know the one) seems more interested, and then before you know it you have a brighter outlook on life and everything's going your way, and it's all because of a little copper tube of magical wonderment ... true story.

    You make it sound as magical as me lucky charms. Copper it is.

    Finaly arrived I see. Have fun with it! I'm still getting used to it. For normal use I can find the 'regular' light settings from low to high. But the other functions are still not clear to me... :oops: Did read the online manual but still a hit and miss thing... :confused:

    Surprisingly amazed by the finish of this thing. I don't like having visible clips when at work so I've been keeping it in a pocket with keys and haven't noticed a single scratch (minus the branding starting to wear off).

    Love this thing. Near perfect UI with several levels to choose from and a switch that is nearly impossible to accidentally activate. Like it even better with my added bite grip, finger lanyard and tail cap magnet.

    Now I thought that it were only Olights that had this tailcap magnetic feature. Lol

    Do you think you could elaborate on the magnet? Did you find one that fits in the small recession on the tail cap, or did you modify it from the inside?

    EDIT: Nevermind, I didn't realize you had posted a thread on the matter. Awesome!!

    I have the original S10 & S10L2 from Olight (carried each for about a year) and really got used to the tail cap magnet but wasn't all that happy with the brightness levels and the non-recessed switch of the S10L2. Then I found out about Zebralight and had to add my own magnet.

    Which tint did you go with? I got the 3D, but think I ended up with the 5A with the recent order mix-ups. Still happy with it though.

    Just started polishing mine, this is after about 30 min. of just Brasso with a microfiber cloth to clean it up a bit, but I'm gonna hit it with the buff wheel I think though.
