    My LensLight Collection, all but the copper are Triple Aught Design Editions. Small lights are single CR123 called MINI's, larger lights are 2xCR123 called KO's. Still on the hunt for a polished titanium KO TAD edition and a copper MINI to complete my collection. Just a warning the copper one is heavy as hell, the titanium is light and is my favorite. All of these are rotated and carried regularly with absolutely no issues to date.

    I love these lights. There are no light reflectors, they utilize a Patented Focusing Aspherical Lens System allowing you to focus in extremely tightly on items in the distance but still provide for a good flood light when focused up closer. I still carry my Maratacs some just due to their small size but these have become my go to lights that are carried most often. The Black and Tan lights are aluminum bodies, then the copper KO, and a polished titanium MINI. Fair warning, these are expensive lights but the build quality is outstanding and warrants it in my opinion. If you are looking for a highly focusable light able to pinpoint an object at distance, these are one of the best options out there in the market today. Chapman/Leonard Ent., the parent company deals with lighting in the movie industry, they could not find a highly focusable light on the market to meet their needs, that led to the development of the LENSLIGHT product line as a new innovation in lighting.

    These are Made in the USA.

    These specific TAD versions and the copper KO are all sold out at this time however the Aluminum versions of both the KO & MINI are available on the LensLight website. Their titanium versions on their website are also currently sold out but their is a notification option for when they return to stock if you create an account. They also have a 3xCR123 model currently available. Striker heads are available for purchase for most models separately. There are also Striderized models out there on the secondary market.

    In the next two shots you will notice the lack of a reflector and can see the aspherical optical glass lens.

    One of the minis is still on my short list. I had one a few years back, and hate that I got rid of it. It was a great light! Love the coppers as well, even though its heavy, I love the material! Great review
