    Good price, good buy

    Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:1 week to 1 month

    Pros:
    This reflector fits well in a m@g, but makes the bezel have a gap to the head (especially if upgrading to glass lens). With a dremel or some kind of grinder that can be taken care of fairly easy since this is aluminum and therefore soft. I run this in a sh...
    Cons:
    DX usually takes long to ship Surface is very susceptible to damage. Keep away from it since there really isn't a way to clean...

    Nice piece for the price

    posted by SvenC on 03/02/2011 Certified Owner

    Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:more than 1 month

    Pros:
    Nicely made piece which fits a mag with a little lathe work. I used 3 x xm-l in series running at 3 amps. Threaded hole in the center was useful for both attaching to the lathe and also attaching the heatsink (not included).
    Cons:
    You have to be careful with the coating as it scratches easily. The reflectors are probably really good for xr-e, but xm-l coul...

    poor coating

    posted by 11___ on 03/04/2009 Certified Owner

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:more than 1 month

    Pros:
    It's nice reflector to fit 3 crees. I used it with 3 R2 leds. Geometry seems to be just fine as I get one hot spot.
    Cons:
    Be very careful about surface of the reflector, I tried to clean it before use with 96% alcohol, and coating washed off so got ...

    Drillable solid aluminium

    posted by electrum on 09/01/2008 Certified Owner

    Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:1 week to 1 month

    Pros:
    Excellent product. Feels solid as. Definitely 100% aluminium. I drilled out one of the lenses to fit a p7 (9.5mm drill bit). Doing this did not damage the lens, so I am very impressed. Could use the lens as a part of the heatsink if you do it right.
    Cons:
    Not enough room for 3x p7 leds with bases. You'll need to remove the bases to get them all in there.

    Great reflector

    posted by RustyRuss on 07/05/2008 Certified Owner

    Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:1 day to 1 week

    Pros:
    This reflector has quite a narrow beam. (I didnt try and measure the angle) Far more efficient than DE polycarbonate optics (4x LED). The threaded hole in the back makes mounting to a heatsink very simple, you dont even need to screw the LEDs down, the heat...
    Cons:
    Halo present on beam but not significant and does not detract from performance.
