In the bundle pack in SL's website it includes one so idk if I should use it or not.
Listen I think you should save yourself a lot of heartache right now and settle for the c6 host for now. Get the feel for building your laser before you start worrying a lot about a bunch of things that will discourage you from starting in the first place. Things that you won't need to worry about until a bit more later on. Sound good?

I'm on the final step of decision.:thinking:
Seems good. I will order one soon if I did it without fail, I will post a review and play with it for a while until I get some extra funds and get another.:can:

Edit: I'm choosing the c6, but the krypton groove, the custom ehgemus, and the sinner host(copperhead slim host) really can't get out of my mind and it's been messing with me for a couple of weeks..it's just painful not to buy such beautiful hosts... Lol

Plenty of time to get those. Keep an eye out on the BST section too for deals when they show up. Take your time with your build and enjoy it, we await your post :)

I forgot to mention this yesterday but if you need a soldering iron and a pair of helping hands I'd be more than willing to give you a nice iron and set of hands I have free of charge you just need to pay shipping :)

Really? Soldering iron I could order on eBay but what I don't know is the solder lead and some heat shrink tubes. Thanks and will I be using an "esd hand strap" to not "kill" the diode? Thax

Okay than! If you'd rather order one over getting a 45$ free soldering iron that's fine to lol I'l lpray for ya, I really think you should stick with the basics until you get the swing of things, I'd hate to see you mess up and lose hundreds of dollars bud..

Not that I don't want it... I'm not sure what the shipping cost.. I hope the shipping doesn't take over the iron itself lol. I just need to ask how do I take care of a diode properly so I don't kill it.

is it a "just add diode" host? will there be a battery contact board already installed??
PM me your address! Ill get them out this week for ya bud! I just don't think your ready to start messing around with a bare diode! keep it simple for now. If ehgemus does a custom build for ya just be sure it will be easy for you to complete! Like just adding the module that already has the driver preinstalled. All you have to do is put the module in the heat sink and solder the leads together add batteries and poof your done! Once you do some more research and practice soldering and get more familiar with the world of lasers like the ins and outs that's when you should go for the full build experience! It happens to often where a newcomer does a build that requires lots of experience and messes up which will deter you from the hobby!
