Emisar has been killing it lately. Just released is this D1S, their throwiest offering yet. I am pleased to have one, as I don't like the typical entry into throwy 18650 lights (that is, the C8). Let's see how it stacks up!
The list on BLF to preorder this light was long, and long ago. After getting on the list, I promptly forgot and never checked back. When the hype train started regarding orders for this light, it was with bitterness and spite that I started the "Q8 Hate." (In jest of course.) Much to my surprise, when I checked I was on the list! I ordered the light, and [spoiler] love this light!
