Carnivore Hunting Lights

I just want everyone to know that I have been busting my but to get some bad ass lights again since last year. The friend of mine that is a light expert and modified my lights last year has been working with me and holding my hand again on this year's new lights.
It is fun for me and him because we have the same ideas in a good light.
What makes it hard is I have been looking for a light that will be great for years to come.
 This road has been exciting and extensive but I believe I am there.  I have at least 2 weeks until I can show what I have. Sorry to you guys that have been contacting me about lights.  I was shooting for September 1st 2014 but it will be the second week in September. I just have not had a finished light that I will say yes to yet.  I have finally gotten to were the lights should be perfect for my final stamp. YA Hoo
 Look out critters, these lights might be so good they should be illegal. :-)
For a brief moment I could hear nature through all the noise.

Not something you like to hear as a consumer or someone who bought a carnivore light last year.

Its not any different then foxpro or ford or gm or any of the manufactures out there.

if i called foxpro today to order a caller, would they tell me that there are none in stock and that i would have to wait because newer better technology is coming out in 2 months?   

also very rare to see car manufactures run out of vehicles.  they usually make enough for supply and demand and have plenty left over at the end of the year.

The Carnivore light was praised so much on this website when it first came out,  it is the greatest, the brightest.  i guess it is a pet peve of mine to claim something to be the best when it hasn't seen a season or has been tested and proven, then it is only in production for 1 season.    i also wonder  if i bought a Carnivore light and something happend 2 years from now will there still be parts or bulbs to fix it. 

The 3  lights I have been using are 3 years old and beat up pretty good, it is time to replace them so i have been looking, the carnivore is one of the lights i would have looked at but they are not available for purchase. 

to use your car analogy, the always say do not buy a car in its first year because they need to work out the bugs.

Yea is sucks, I had to purchase leds and heat sinks in the United states and send to china for testing. Both parts are made in China but only sold by an americian companies. Then when the stuff comes into out country we pay a 3% inportant tax. But had I have to pay 30% inport fee to china so for every dollar I spend on lights it cost me 33 cents right off the top. And you wonder why the us can not compete.
 with china.
Also call me on you china phone or computer to compain. Or just smash you phone and computer.
