    Keeper, Cernobila, it is a Wolf Eyes light, should be out before Christmas, I probably wont have any till end January (as I will be sitting on a beach all Jan). A little more than a Sniper/Defender it is adjustable but should have better throw due to a deeper reflector. Haven't touched one yet but thought others may be interested

    Now you mention it, the body and tail cap are all WE. Deeper reflector, something to take on the other Super throwers? Finally somewhere to put a lanyard as well, very good considering how many i have to circulate. Interesting it is adjustable, makes for something different

    Sitting on the beach all Jan, sounds tough, oh well at least my bank account will have a chance to progress

    Focusing isn't a feature I really care that much for, but the light looks cool.
    What kind of batteries does it take?
    Price?
    Just one output level? 260 lumens sounds like too much for most tasks?

    Coldlocus, it will take 18650, CR123 and will be available as a single level and multilevel light.

    I usually agree, however when using the 260 lumens having the light focused out a little may make it a little more usable rather than the typical hotspot of deep reflector lights. I like the OD colour, something a little different

    Sounds like you (or perhaps your wife) need it, i will have to get some tips from you we are looking to go there next year as well
    At least late January will give me some time to convince my wife that i NEED another light

    Glen, what's it like on wide focus, what LED does it have and the price?....single level output can be adjusted by the focus ring, so you don't really need multi level in this case.

    Sure you do - saves batteries! The variable beam is great too.

    I would love to see this light, and I suspect that since I am a confirmed Wolf Eyes junkie, it will end up in my hands pretty shortly after hitting the US shores! Can you give us a clue on pricing?

    Nice one Glen.
    Good to see Wolf bring something a little bit different out.
    Like the look of the colour too.
    How is the £ to A$ rate at the moment?

    You and your good lady enjoy your well deserved break.

    Not sure of price yet, I am guessing Mike at PTS and myself will probably get them late Jan or Feb.


    Thanks Keeper and J3bnl, I am looking forward to a break, the hardest part was to get people to stay and look after the attack chihuahua

    260 lumens? Is it a Cree Q5 drive a little over 1A? Or maybe they got their hands on some Cree R2's.

    Wink Re: New adjustable LED light - Wolf Eyes

    Glen you mention that it will run on 123's and 18650, will it run on AW's RCR123's?
    Do you get Belgian Beer in Thailand?
    Just checked the exchange rate, the £ is on the rise against the A$ again!

    Finally a solid company looking into perfecting a focus system.

    JB3nl it probably will have a 3.7-6V range as WE finds the smaller range more efficient, though a 3.7-13V may become available. So that would cut out RCR123. I just go Changi in Thailand, I figure do as the locals do. Belgian Beer is available in Bangkok but at a price I could get 4-5 Changi or Singha beers at. You can guess my tight natured choice

    I would be interested in a head to head comparison of this light with the Fenix T1

    Both seem to be marketed to the same target group.

    The FOX doesn't have a clip so it may be easier to carry on a duty belt. I'm really hunting for a new Q5 on the belt light.

    Mike or Glen
    Has this arrived yet or any further on when it will? I know Glen is away for a month but wondering if there is any further update on when you are getting it Mike? I notice on PTS that arrival date is December 12 or soon near after. I am keen to see this in action and some reviews of it.

    E mail I received stated PTS was expecting to receive them on Monday the 18th.

    I have one on pre-order along with 2 Q5 drop in modules.

    Well, I'd like to bring this thread up again, since I'm thinking about buying the Wolf-Eyes FOX.
    As far as I have read it should have a good output and built quality as well as a good regulation.
    Concerning the focus ability there seem to be some different opinions...
    Any new comments regarding that light?!?
    Thanks!

    A good review is here:

    http://www.light-reviews.com/we_fox/

    The beam is narrow compared to a Fenix L1D CE. The focusing works but don't expect too much. On mine, the head and tail are slightly lighter than the body. I'm happy with mine.

    Thanks for the link!
    Does the FOX have a "lock out" feature as e.g. in the Fenix P3D (where you can unscrew the rear part of the battery tube a little bit to prevent accidentally switching on the light via the rear clicky)?

    Default Re: New adjustable LED light - Wolf Eyes

    A slight turn of the tail does prevent the light from working. The switch isn't exposed much and is firm.

    Great, thanks for the answer!

    Now the only thing I'm still a little undecided on is the focus ability.
    Some say there is hardly any difference between minimal and maximal focus, others say it's quite a difference.
    On these pictures the difference looks quite noticable...
    (The german review those pictures came from is here.)

    Any comments would be highly appreciated!
    Of course, more comparison shots would be great, too!

    You can find more beamshots lower on this page http://www.ledmania.cz/recenze/wolf-eyes-fox-1x
    On a spot setting it throws as Fenix T1 on a wide setting it is more like a wall of light or an underpowered SSC P7 light. Build quality is really excellent.

    Looks to me as if the focusing does make a difference after all!
