hey im new to caving / mine exploring and shall hopefully be joining south wales caving club sometime even though im from mid wales

what i was wondering is do you guys have any suggestions
i have looked at fellows lamps and was aiming for lynx 3000 or dragon 1800 ... but just testing the water before i go drilling holes Roll Eyes i guess there is many about but looking for something that will give off good light during walking crawling and good flood for looking down or up shafts etc

i am a electrician by trade and was wondering if there was any helpful guides or similar to making your own or to be pointed in the right direction

The silence could be saying everything.

Should have more D1800s ready soon plus an X1000. D800s will be later next week and X3000s the waiting lists are starting.

Sorry, best I can do, its only supposed to be a hobby!

If anyone on here wants to suggest alternatives to the man, go ahead. No offence will be taken. Everyone can see the situation.

I could possibly supply before Christmas, I am about 90% on this, if this helps.

The new range of aluminium lamps are more straightforward to produce than the Trigon Oldham conversions, so I am able to meet my customers demands better.

EDIT

I am happy to take an order without any deposit or anything, just a name and address does it

Having a RF 3500 a RF 1750 and a Scurion 1500, the 1750 is the best lamp in terms of amount of light, quality of light and value. IP: 81.140.40.222
