Just a quick couple of pictures showing the difference in beams running 3 amp 7135 drivers, different manufacturers, and the above LED's. Both lights were running Sanyo batteries. The XML driver was a KD and the XPG was an IOS Qlite. Output at the tailcaps, XML 2.99 amps and XPG 2.9 amps. Both pictures were taken at the same time. TIR's were from the same batch. Supplier has been long forgotten. On the light meter the XPG was a long way ahead.
Firstly the XML-U2 on aluminium star and copper pill. Link to light. TIR has been changed since the light was built.

Secondly the XPG on a copper star and aluminium pill. Link to light.

I'll leave the mouseover for Spas. Thanks.

When the big picture is to big, look for a point you can start at and build from there.

Sorry Steve, I somehow managed to miss this post.

Quite a bit of difference there to be honest. I noticed the X-PG has a noticeably narrower beam than the XM-L - interesting.

That XP-G light really does perform that's for sure! I do quite like the TIR lens and have been meaning to give one a go.

Thanks mate for the post I'll sort a mouseover for you

Mouseout = XM-L

Mouseover = XP-G

Read, listen and think on it.
