Looks like Hollis is releasing a 16 watt LED can light. Their site says shipping in Nov but no price. Hmmmm.

My guess is Hollis is going to debut them at DEMA this week, which is coming up Nov 4-7th......Then put the price out there for us to think about.

If while I'm down there and see a price...I will update the thread/post.

That is tempting - but telling my wife that I just spent $800.00 for a flashlight is going to be a hard sell!!!

Better than telling her you spent $1600 on a flashlight!

Repeat after me: "It's a safety item, dear... you don't want to risk me getting hurt, do you?"

She will just ban you from diving ever again!

"It's a safety item, dear... you don't want to risk me getting hurt, do you?"
"Of course not, dear... you're right, diving is a dangerous sport, I don't want you getting hurt without proper equipment. But we can't afford it now. Let's wait and see, shall we?"

Next week:
"Honey, I'm going diving this weekend"
"Oh no, dear, you haven't got proper equipment to make your dive safe. You know I don't want to risk you getting hurt. Maybe later when we win the lottery and have the $800 to spare for that torch."

This could be a case of:

(in the near future) "What ever happened to Fisheater?"

"I remember him, pretty cool guy. Haven't heard anything from him since he got that flashlight...."

"Hmm, Guess his "It's a safety item, dear... you don't want to risk me getting hurt, do you?" didn't work" :smiley36: :smiley36: :smiley36:

My wife would say, " $1000 for a flashlight..You better not walk towards it (the light), because I'll hit you over the head with it, then use it for a dome light in your casket!" :smiley36: She is a very smart person.:smiley31: :smiley9:

I put the order in today. I figure that it won't show up on the credit card bill until early Dec, so I have some time to come up with a good explanation. I don't suppose "Honey, I saved us $400 on a flashlight" is a good start, is it?

If she dives, "watch this" is much better. And if she asks how much it cost, the answer is "worth every penny!"

Looks like it has a "6 degree beam - non focusable". Isn't 6 degree what most of the HID are? This should be a good light for the money - just trying to convince myself it worth the trade off with the wife - because if I get this she will want something in return.

I like the specs, and to be honest I'd be very temped once my HID dies, but until then I'll keep waiting. I do like it though and envy fisheater.
