I have been shipping out international units so please look for your FLEX in the next two weeks. With the exception of Germany, if you have not received an email from me asking for your current mailing address, phone number (for customs report) and a good email address (for tracking number notification) please check your junk folder.
Germany is my last major country to ship out. I am getting to it. And I am taking care of loose ends. Some people have asked me where their FLEX is only to discover they never filled out the original KS survey or did not see my direct email. That's OK, I will take care or you and you will get your light.
In other news, I was tickled to get the following story and picture (see below). Thanks William for sharing a great experience and real-world test. If you too have a great story please email it to me at firstname.lastname@example.org
Firstly I wanted to say thank you for this magnificent flashlight. It has served me quite well in my adventures and projects.
This weekend I did something rather stupid with it. I was refilling the differential on my car and needed a free hand. So I wedged the flashlight in between to coils of the rear spring. Because it was so conveniently placed, I forgot about it. I put the car back together, put it back on the ground and drove off. In the rain.
A few hours later (after erranding and whatnot) I arrived at my girlfriends house (~50 miles had been driven over some very rough roads and at highway speeds at this point). She asked what that light was under my car. Sure enough the flashlight was still there. Still on. And still pointing exactly where I had it hours earlier.
I jacked up the car, pulled it out and inspected it. There were only two little dents in the body (right above the battery and the circuit board). These dents couldn't be more than 1/64 of an inch deep. I was astonished at how well it survived. Attached is a picture of how I found it. For the record, I drive a 1996 Lincoln Town Car, so this isn't a light or small vehicle.
So thank you. Thank you for building an awesome product. Thank you for making an industrial strength flashlight. Keep on making them!
