Some beam comparisons for you. The first two shots are with one light aiming at the wall from about 5 feet. The second set of pictures are two lights aiming at the garage door from about 10 feet back.
I know its not great..... But it may help some of you.

Mm12


Mm10


Mm12's



And mm10's

Showing one each of the mm12 and the new mm10.


Interestingly, the mm12's consume 10 Watts....while the new mm10's consume only 6 watts


The beam pattern is just what I was looking for. Not nearly as wide as the mm12's but not a pencil beam either. Very nice. Here is a shot from 10' back with only the new lights.


And a shot with the new lights and my hid projector. Keep in mind the hid is 5k and puts out about 3000 lumen.


And the finished product.


These are very nice. Exactly what is was hoping for!
You sure dont waste any time getting things done


Thanks for taking the time to post pics and feedback.

I want a small light so I can install them inside the fairing of my 990; I also want someting that works off road, but not overkill since need to be able of using them on road by night with oncoming traffic.
Basically I need something between DRLs and the Sun
Is this light the answer?

Would love to see some pics of light pattern and reach. You know, the kind of pics that makes us buy these things
This guy should work out well for you.. providing you're realistic about the volume of light your expecting.

That may seem like an "odd" statement.. but we strive for satisfied customers.

The The CREE XM-L is stated to be 1040lm. That being said if you are looking for the same quantity of light provided by a 70-75 watt halogen, with a 25 degree beam... the MM10 Bullet should make you happy.

We are working getting some night shot pics and will have some soon.

Check out the post by "jc9995" in this thread for some comparison pics.

Thanks for that honest reply Brian.
Jc9995 pics do help, beam pattern seems what I'm looking for and I love how the lights look.
I better wait for the night pics to make my mind, 1,000 lumens and that pattern sounds good to me, not overkill, not flood and low draw is what I *think* I want...

Ok, here are a couple night shop comparisons. They don't really show the difference as much as I had hoped. Tonight was the first time I had a chance to ride a bit with the new bullets, and it is a big difference from the mm12's! The new ones certainly have more throw than the 12's do, but still have plenty of flood to light street signs and the side of the road. I live out in the country and do about 20 miles of country 2 lane each way every day....seeing the eyes glow on the side is really my priority here.... And the mm10's are much better at doing that then the mm12's. These are exactly what I was hoping for.


I took the pics with all exposure settings locked in so there is no difference in camera settings from one picture to the other. The lights are roughly 30' from the fence.

First up is the new mm10's. Some spill, but focused.




Then the mm12's. Much more spill, no real hot spot.





All in all.... They are both VERY good lights. They both do a great job at adding extra light for very minimal power consumption.

Thanks for the feedback and additional pics.

We are still working on a setup that will show the difference (and similarities) between our lights (and a few others). Time permitting, that should be done in 2 - 3 weeks.

thanks,
-Brian

The pre-wired kits are sold out (back in stock in about 2 weeks).

The lights are still available and can be found only using the super secret link.

BUY THE BULLET

takes you to a page on our site where you can buy a set before we release them to the rest of the world (October).

thanks,
-Brian

Good question and we are listening

The order page was updated to allow "back-orders" to be placed for the kits. We will start shipping the kits on or about Oct.1. The same day the lights are released to the general public.

Link - BUY THE BULLETS

Lights are still available and ship within 24 hours of order.


Thanks,
-Brian

Patiently awaiting the eta of Oct 1.
