It’s been very busy over the past few months. We have been swamped with orders from public safety dive teams. We give these priority production because we want to show our support however we can. We have equipped a number of teams in harness/wing systems and especially our RX10 lights. With over 100 lights recently going to public safety dive teams we are proud they looked to a US made product. Our lights are made in the USA, from the electronics to the housings. The teams were looking for products made in the USA for local service and reliability. We don’t buy off the shelf but rather design it and build it here. The engineers designing our lights are divers and take every aspect of performance and quality personally, as if they were going to dive it themselves just like we do.
The RX10 is getting brighter, we haven’t changed anything but improved heat sink and boards yield longer burn time and some more light output. Every module comes in tagged with its individual quality control analysis for color frequency, current draw and LUX output at one meter. We are going to start including these specs with every light so you know they have been individually tested and inspected.
Look for some new accessories coming out for the RX10 light: our new comfort fit Goodman style hand mount with large footprint pad for the back of your hand. This new pad has three sets of mounting holes for single or double light head mounts. As with any hard hand mount it feels better with a glove on. In the Florida caves I wear fingerless gloves to protect my hands from the light mounts and gear, it’s the little things that make the sport comfortable.
If you are at the springs over the next week I will show you some of the new accessories since I will be testing them.
