    anyone see the eliptical optics in operation?

    Thinking of building a twin xml l2 bar light. Has anyone had any luck with elliptical optics? On paper it seems to be a good idea with a mix of flood and a bit of narrow.

    I guess they are cheap enough to just buy a few and try it out.

    After reading some specs, it seems I am mistaken. When I saw the 44*x12* I assumed a pear shaped pattern. like nice and wide in the front but with a bit of throw.

    Am I right it saying that it is more of a horizontal "bar" like beam?

    I have not tried the exact optic you linked, but the one I played with (for an MC-E) made an oval shaped beam. Since I don't like much flood, I thought about using it turned 90 degrees from "normal". All it did in that orientation was put too much light close in or do a good job lighting up the trees depending on the aim.

    I will pass on them. I have used the 20mm optics from led supply in my last build (copy of puckedups) and they work pretty good but, I have not tried anyone else.

    they have some 26mm as well but im not sure I will like the frosted.
