New Lights

What did everybody think?

My vote = Awesome. Cheaper, easier to turn on and off, lower profile, and they won't accidentally turn on when you put discs in your bag.

I've seen them and they do seem way better. Question: who is selling them other than Tom? Does dgw have any? Most importantly will anyone at old pike be selling them tonight?

The two questions yet to be answered are: do they last as long? are they water proof or even resistant?  ???

We can always try to seal em with clear tape if they don't work in wet conditions.

I agree with Cooper. They are much nicer, especially because of price and turning them off and on. I plan on buying clear duct tape to make it a little easier to use. But I'm sold. no more beacon lights for me.
But it would be nice if we could get the website they are available on. Or is it a secret??? :-X ???

I can give you or anyone the website. It's not a secret. Depending on how many you buy they range from 65 cents each to 80 cents each. Then there is $11 shipping. I'm selling them for $1 each, but if you want to buy 99 (I think that's the minimum quantity) they will be 80 cents each + $11 shipping, so if you spend $90.20 you will get them for 91 cents each and save yourself 9 cents each over getting them from me.   ::)

Good deal thanks Jay. On a sidenote I ordered about $50 worth of glow crap from this same website last may for wakarusa.  The service was good and I got my order quick and with no errors or issues, and was satisfied with all the products.

Tom,

Is the battery fixed or can it be replaced?  (cr2032?)



Supposedy the battery is not replaceable, but the engineers at the skunkworks will be attempting a disection and reverse engineering soon to see if the battery can be replaced. At $1 (or .65) each though, it may be just as easy to get a new one.

The new lights are incredible. I used them last night at Old Pike and they are bright, have multiple settings, can easily be turned on/off, and have minimal impact on the flight of the disc.  Also, I used crappy transparent packing tape that got wet from the dew and had no issues due to the low profile design.  One small step for man, one giant leap for disc golf.
