I’ve had the sst40 for a couple of days now, and WOW. What a fantastic light. I gave the xhp50 as a gift 3 months ago and now regret it because it seems like it’ll never restock, but that was great too. But the throw and output on the sst40 is awesome. Visually loooks like the same Lumen as my mf01 mini, but throws further. Both running on 40t. The green body is beautifully done, and the size is great. Just a perfect all around light. Wish I got the 5000k, but I got the 6500k thinking I would dedome it for better throw, but now I Don’t want to touch it lol...
Received both of my lights today. XHP50.2 and sst40 both in 6500. Very happy with both. XHP is hella bright. Thanks much for the chance at this deal.
Received my XHP50 today. Really impressed with output. Measured around 68Kcd intensity with 11400 lumens output at switch on.
Just got mine! Emisar D4Sv2 for comparison. I went with SST20 4000K. It is really heavy in the hand (obviously), but it feels so high quality. Machining and finish on the copper is very nice.
SST-40 versions should really have an SMO reflector - the LED is more for throw and the LED has little to no beam tint shift, so SMO is the way to go. XHP50.2's beam has some ugliness to it, so OP is preferably bettery. Ok, I can't rhyme...
Very happy with the color on my green ec03 as well. In the dark it could be mistaken for black. The tint of sst40 5k is very nice as well. I did a tailcap bypass on my xhp50 version but never tested the ‘before’ output. With the new version it made it easy to swap them. XHP50 picked up 20% output SST40 +15% Ceiling bounce tests, also in comparison the XHP50 version puts out 20% more than the SST40 version
