After receiving the really depressing news about the Aeon, I hit up Enrique one last time. My request was on behalf of you folks for one more run of Aeons. The idea was a "Super" Aeon, one with a Neutral emitter and a three stage twisty with a moonlight mode low (.25 lumens). It seemed like nothing more than a wing and a prayer, but there is no harm in asking, so I gave it a go.
Surprisingly, here was Enrique's response:
I'm not going to be doing aluminum lights anymore, but I suppose I could
make a last run of Aeons for your readers with a twist - three stages in
titanium, with a nice neutral white Cree XR-E. I could probably take on
the project in a month if you wanted to see if there was sufficient
interest. Exact pricing would be determined later, but based on past
experience I would expect it to be sub-$400, and there would have to be
somewhere on the order of 75 folks interested in lights for it to be
If you were able to round up enough interested parties I'd be willing to
do the same thing as what was done with the Mako when coyote conscripted
me; When things are ready to go into production take a deposit on the
lights, then take the remaining balance payment once they're ready to
ship, which keeps things simple and the lead times between payment and
All the very best,
I am fairly certain I don't need to emphasize this point, but this will be one hell of a light--Ti body, super runtimes, three stage twisty, neutral CREE emitter, all in a tiny package. I guess the only thing better than an Aeon would be an Everyday Commentary Muyshondt Aeon Final Edition.
Be watching for future announcements.
Also, don't say I never did anything for you. This AND all of the giveaways (two more to be announced very soon).
