PERFECT FIT – 52mm x 1.8mm Glass Lens Reviews

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

Pros:
Got this to replace the scratched lens of my Maglite 3D and it is a PERFECT fit, the lens looks so clear now it is as if there is no lens at all.
My dad didnt believe it until he tapped it and saw that there was a lens there.
Output from my Mag 3D with the MagLED drop in has increased and after focusing, the hotspot looks great.
Of course this isnt a borofloat or UCL lens but hey, for the price, i am so definitely not complaining.
Lens came double wrapped in bubble wrap, i had fears that in travel it might have gotten broken especially since it came in a package with:- Ultrafire C3 extension tube, Audio Visual 3 to 1 connector switch and 5xCR123 primaries but my fears were unfounded. No damage whatsoever.
Now if DX sold aluminium cam/camless reflectors and 3xCree Q5 drop ins, I would DEFINITELY get those to upgrade my Mag. [DX: are you hearing me??? There are hundreds of people with stock 3Ds that could do with cheap simple upgrades like that, sell it as a kit, PLEASE, there are other sites that have it (no names mentioned) but i usually only order from here]
Cons:
Absolutely none. It's just a glass lens and it does its job well.
Other:
Get this to replace your plastic lenses, I will probably order a spare or 2
Bottomline:
Just get it, with free shipping it is a 1000% good deal.
