Hey Naw

Hopefully soon on some more pics

The Xeray is Very Nice! It's more compact in overall size than the pics I've seen depict...

Here's the weight from   ah,   UPS   :-[


Xeray = 5.62 lbs

I've got some Ceiling Bounce Test coming up for Relative output using X990 as a Baseline...

Can you give us a better indication of size please length and width versus the RB. also Height if possible.
It looks 1" shorter and 1" wider based on the top image.

Thanks

Reuv & all, I took the Rayzorlite out for a stroll tonight with the IR filter and some NV.  It was absolutely amazing.  The throw is incredible, I estimate 600 - 800 yards of crystal clear IR.  Be weary of bouncing it off of close objects as it can surprise you.

Removed the IR filter and NV and caught a couple of unsuspecting deer crossing.  You all know the proverbial "deer caught in the headlights" but I think the Rayzorlite stunned them more than the usual car would have.  I quickly moved it away and lit a path for them to cross safely, but I wish I had some pics of that to share.

If you don't have an HID, get one.... you'll be glad you did.

OK guys... go easy on me..  I never gave the HID lights much thought...but I now have some incentive to learn more.  My brother in law is a photographer that works with many of the law enforcement agencies.  He wants to do night work under "IR" and is very interested in the various HID lights.  He wants to be able to illuminate other aircraft, mainly helicopters, at under 1000 yards.  He needs something portable, preferably something that can be mounted along side a camera. Just for clarification, his work is done mainly for training purposes.  Any thoughts on how much wattage would be needed?  He said the razorbeam light was too big to use, but the razorlight may work.  How about the Helios?  I'm just gathering info now, so anything is appreciated.  It's a whole new world at these lumens!  :thumbup:

Once upon a time I had a HID
Yes sir, yes sir, yes I did.
Was hard to keep it from my kid.
So it sold to the highest bid.

A light with a tripod mount would probably help him a lot, 1000 yards is a long way - I don't think I can see that far!

If long distances are the primary requirement - a light with a larger reflector might fit the bill.  The RL is compact and from all accounts, well balanced - and weighs just over 4 lbs. 
Dragon, Ti, and Classic Chammies, Blk, Bare, & Brass LCs, Blk & Bare LHs, X990, Rayzorlite, The Torch, Mag85, MagGH24, SF C3, C2, 6P, G2, & Winelights, Peak Caribbean, Pacific, McKinnleys, + more , Exolion Ti, Orb Raw NS, SS Gatlight, Eternalights, Nuwai QIII, Inova X5THAs, X1, ARCs, + more?
