Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 week to 1 month

Pros:
Good fit and finish.
If Romisen has become the standard for China machining then I would say this is close enough.
Decent tint/brightness.
Had some lube in it.
O rings included (about time)
ACTUALLY IN STOCK
Cons:
head seems to want to thread funny when foil is added.
Maybe it isn't a con....just be careful.
Not super bright.
I don't have an good estimate but maybe...150 lumens?
Lots of single mode lights are just medium bright, isn't really a can, just a trade off.
Other:
I bought it to use as a host and modded the module for someone else.
I get a body, and a drop in that I can resell for the purchase price !
It is among the smallest P60 hosts I've seen.
Bottomline:
I had been buying Romisen because I liked their build quality, but their emitters are falling behind.
THIS IS my new P60 platform.
and comes with a good emitter already!
DX PLEASE MAKE A 2 MODE HI 1200MA -LO 100MA WITH Q25A !!!
