    Stick it on your head

    Just scored a couple hundred of these cool Marwi HeadShots

    The Marwi lights bolt right on easily and the Magic shines will work if you use my Magic Shine to Marwi adapter.

    I used one the other night on a hike and it was pretty cool to have a P7 blazing away lighting up the trail. Normally I just carry a P7 torch, but the HeadShot was hands free.

    More pics and info here if anyone is interested

    I suppose you could stick a battery up there if you don't mind the added weight.

    I can fit 5 of them in the flat rate priority mail package for $15 to UK and all other countries
    Canada and Mexico is less at $13.

    USA is $6.95 for same package

    BTW, the elastic is really thick and beefy and feels good on the head.

    So how many of these do you think you can get?

    I've been building lights for a local mtb club I belong to and would like to expand sales. I'll gladly buy one of these off you to see how they work. But it'd be nice if you could be a consistent supplier (not like all-battery.com who dropped the nice cheap nimh pack I was selling to folks). If you have access to a stash of several hundred then I'm interested. If you can only get 50 more then less so.

    I have about 200 of them in stock right now, but that is all I can get.

    The Marwi USA distributor sold me everything they had left.
    They are no longer selling Marwi products in the USA

    I may be able to get more from Marwi in Taiwan if they all sell.

    This morning I checked to see exactly how many of the Headshots I could fit into the Flat rate envelope/box container.

    They are not heavy, just alot of bulk because of the elastic straps

    Quantity of 5 was about the max I could fit into the flat rate package

    Just a heads up in case someone wanted 6 of them.

    Shipping cost
    $6.95 USA
    $13 canada and Mexico.

    $15 all other countries

    I just shipped 10 to a customer in colorado and had to use a 10" x 6" x 6" box.

    BTW guys,
    I have a shipping calculator on my shopping cart if you want to see rates for larger quantities.

    After quanties of 5 a Non-flat rate box is the cheapest up to a certain weight.

    At some point a medium flat rate box becomes the best deal and I can pack a ton of them into a medium flat rate box.

    Nice!

    The postal system was fast.

    Been using my headshot also to take the dog out on night walks on the trail systems around my house.

    I should rig one up to the dog's head also, he likes to go into large culverts and explore.

    Looks like you have one of the rabbits your dog chases, on your head.
    Light and mount look the business though.

    Wow, pretty cool that your light just bolted right up.

    Got to get one of those rabbit hats to go with my light
