    I love mine, but it replaced was relegated to a backup since I was sent a DRIS 1800 prototype to test. Nice and tight 8 degree beam angle, too.

    Sorry, I just woke up from reality. Must be a little narc'd from diving earlier... :blinking:

    DRIS 1800 ... would that be 1800 lumen?
    ... 8* ? that would be excellent

    count me in :)

    Yes it would be. While I'm starting rumors, why not make it the New and Improved DRIS 2k? I'll be waiting, too.

    I had a modified W-200 with a 5.7* beam ... found it was really nice for low viz daytime use

    Sure would love to hear of one with a similar tight beam from you :)

    Ahhh....so you guys need some porn to hold you over till our new light comes out? Here are some prototype drawings. Light is currently being tested and going thru re-design though...but this will get you salivating

    If you guys are really designing your own lights then I have a request. Make some based on the 100W (9000 lumen) LED chips that are being sold these days. LE-LL19116 is the part number for the ones I was looking at. They go for under $7 individually, presumably even cheaper in bulk. Granted you've got to source a driver (the 100w variety go for around $30) and appropriate battery. I'd love to see some high power can lights based on these. Presumably they'd be able to rival high power HID can lights, at a much lower cost and with better runtimes. That chip only pulls about 3.5a at full power.

    Feel free to send one to me, I'll gladly test it in New England... and maybe send it back when I'm done testing :wink:

    I tested a video light that had one of those suckers in it almost 2 years ago. It's actually still sitting on my desk. That sucker is BRIGHT, and gets hot really fast! I think it would melt almost any reflector you could put near it...LOL
    That LED is HUGE!
