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

Pros:
Quite well made parts (see caveat in Cons) The consensus is that the elements are XPGs so a great price for 6. The light from this head is Very bright.
Cons:
The two halves seperated due to the two (there should be three) screws that hold both halves together being too long or the threaded holes being too shallow depending on how you look at it, anyway the threads of one hole didn't hold the screw which meant it was being held together by one ill fitting screw. For my MOD in a 6D M@glite I had to do some filing and grinding. It would be better if DX just made this to fit as a drop-in for a M@glite
Other:
for photos have a look at my entry in the forum for this part.
Bottomline:
If you want to mod a M@glite 6D to be the brightest you will see then this is the mod for you.
