    Magicshine flood lens, new optics

    for myself, I like more of a smooth spread, flood lens for the handlebar

    did some beam shots to show the difference.

    I'am trying to come up with a better mtb light,
    but it's very hard, as such, wanted to improve
    existing lights with cables , adapters and lenses.

    If you think this effort is good, or are interested in a lens,
    please post, contact me, let me know.
    Since I need to order these custom lenses, in large quantities from the mfg,
    it is not that easy.

    thanks, did that,

    but also need to see, any interest.
    so please post here.

    I can't buy those 1 at a time, so it's hard to help you out,
    because I don't ride with MS, and I don't need 100-3000 pieces.
    so this is a service to MTB riders.

    thanks, Rob

    For what it's worth, a lot of people are going to like those lenses. I don't own a MS but if I did I would definitely consider buying one or more of those lenses if they were easy to get hold of.

    For added flood the flood lens could be very useful. Personally I like the elliptical lens. Mounted low I think it could have an interesting effect. Not sure I like this so called, "euro-spot". However it would look better if used with a single die emitter like the XM-L. Besides, can't be too long before there is an XM-L version of the MagicShine. Need I say, when or if that happens I just might buy one.

    I thinking of buying a couple is that the flat rate price or can you combine shipping on multiples and get a per unit price + x amount for shipping

    same price.

    but for elliptical, you need to preorder , non left.

    installation notes:
    - make sure the lamp head is not hot !
    - unscrew the front ring, watch, that you don't drop the front glass
    - take the reflector out and replace with new optic lens
    - screw the front ring, including glass back.

    for the elliptical, when you screw in the front, it will rotate,
    due the o-ring inside, but you do need to lineup the lens.
    recommend, to use some grease on the orings, and thread.
    I just use cheap thermal paste on the thread, and a dab on the orings.
    when you screw it in, to hold the glass with your thumb, to prevent rotating.
    there is also the option, to just , stick them in with the foam-glue fastener, already attached, to prevent rotating, but most, like to change as easy as possible, without any residue afterwards.

    to preorder, use contact form on my site.
    I won't send payment request, till I have them in stock.

    thanks for clarifying!I wanted to make sure I didn't have to make any permanent changes too the light head incase I wanted too change back for some reason.

    I think this will work good for me cause I'm running 2 ms on the bars, might be cool to have one stock and one flood or elliptical.

    here is a link, with some pictures

    http://www.mtbl.robs-x.com/page1/page3/index.html ,

    for 2 MS on handlebar, even the euro spot, and soft combination is cool.
    since the soft is covering up the the spot, and in the woods, you would not notice,
    this , like on a wall.
    and the euro spot, looks cooler, than just the reflector.
    right now I have only one MS for testing.
    mtb off-road, 1x soft/flood, 1x euro spot, that's what I ride,
    except with MC-E, better bin, not MS, better color.

    I think the Euro Spot looks real good for helmet - about double the size of the original spot which is exactly what I'm looking for.

    True, but judging from the wall shot photo it looks like the Euro spot lens magnifies the cross pattern artifact of the 4-die emitter ( P-7 in this case ). Still, if its cheap it's worth a shot. You might not notice the artifact when used on the trail.

    Just ordered and paid for two lenses from you Rob. The Soft Lens for bikeriding and the Elliptical for skiing. Will post my experience here after I have tried them!

    OT: In the future, the Shenzhen will make genetic copies of people cheaper than raising a kid on your own!

    He had 1 pc so I ordered up the soft and the euro spot. I'll give the euro spot a shot. It can't be worse than the stock beam with the too-tight spot and black rings.
