Alright so I was in need of a host since I damaged his first host I purchased, I forgot I didn't have the room for duel driver build ive been wanting to do. So I removed my parts from my sinner host and saving that for the duel driver build.

So I contacted Ehgemus a week ago asking about any new host he has for sale and sure enough he had this one and he had planned on painting it and giving it the stress look but after seeing the picture I wanted it the way it was so payment t sent and arrived yesterday and let me tell you it was worth every penny and more!!!

The host comes in 4 parts , focus cap,heat sink for the module, host battery tube, and the tail cap. What sold me on this host was the fact that it has the momentary switch and a rear master switch! As usually he worked his magic and host is fantastic. Never disappointed when he builds, came with battery contact with the two leads ready to solder. Now I applied glow powder on this as well but I think I nailed this one, figured out what I did wrong on my sinner host so this time around it came out perfect to me. I used glow powder and gorilla glue 5 minute epoxy. I know some like the ones the set longer but I just did small sections at a time, plus I was too lazy to go the store to look for new epoxy that has a longer set time.


If anyone local to me has a glow powder they want to add , feel free to pm me and ill give you a hand. Anyhow lets just get on with the pictures.





































Well thats all the photos for now.thanks for checking out my review.

Yeah host was too good to pass up! Jeff did you build your kryton yet? Jordan I might have to hit you up for that 3.5W diode very soon!

Not yet. Holidays were busy with my wife's family visiting for England. I just got me a set of diode press from Flaminpyro, soldering station, flux paste and pen so getting close now. I'm heading down to Jeff's place for him to walk me through my first build. I really don't want to screw up a $400 diode and although this stuff is pretty basic for most people here Its all new to me.

Damn that's a spend diode. Im assuming its a green diode? Looks like you got your basis covered, can't wait to see it.

I'm trying!!! lol. I have a master plan I think is going to be very unique collection in time. RGB set of copper top Krytons with GITD. I just ordered the 462nm diode yesterday so thats 2 down 1 more diode to buy.
