We briefly discussed but nothing final,what do you have?
Holy crapanoli, I'm so sorry XM. My week got completely ahead of me. I meant to reply sooner.

What I was talking about is you actually just missed rvrh3 sell his 589 Spartan the other month here. But in the of the thread another member trenchee was talking about selling his.
I am toying with listing my DL Spartan for sale to fund some of my other hobbies, I really don't want to but I also have hardly taken it out of its box in damn near 3 years and it's a sin for it to be sat there while someone else could be enjoying it.

if you are interested (it's the same type as this, the PGL-III-M which are "50mW" but previous owner actually metered it closer to 80 - though I don't have an LPM to verify) let me know - I still need a bit of a nudge to list it and finally let it go but I am probably willing to. The only thing I am worried about is customs finding it and destroying it!

*edited to correct PGL-III-C to PGL-III-M!
UK. thanks for the messages.

I'll post a thread soon, just need to make that final jump in convincing myself to part with it.
He then posted his sale thread here.

I see now you are already aware of this though so my apologies. I've been away for a bit and now I just look like a fool :ROFLMAO:

I see you have multiple choices now though so I wish you the best of luck!

No worries! Just a quick update on this; me and brendon7358 hammered out a deal and I am now the proud owner of his very well-kept Dragon Lasers Spartan 589nm 50mw! I've done numerous LPM tests and have gotten as high as 70mw out of this unit, with the average tests sitting between 45mw and 60mw. However, I think I'm going to leave this thread up for the time being as I've seen quite a few folks who got Spartans that routinely put out 80mw+ and 100mw+ readings. While I love my new Spartan, I think I'd likely take the opportunity to also buy another with higher output if someone happened to have interest in selling theirs in the future!

How is the beam output, on axis? What do you think of the divergence?

That's awesome XM! I'm glad you actually got one. Higher power would be icing on the cake but I think it's important to realize that now you have something that is probably going to get very, very rare, almost unobtainable, here really quick.

Can't wait for the new video if there is one in the works. *Nudge nudge, wink wink* 😉

It's all about supply and demand but if I was going to spend the better part of a grand on a pointer I would get a sanwu RGB.

Yeah. The picture on their site is definitely my house, and it's for a different laser than what they're advertising

:ROFLMAO: Not much you can do about the Chinese stealing your photo. They tend to steal whatever helps them sell their stuff.

Huh. They stole the one picture on that htpow listing. The beam shot with the ping pong table is mine...

The same happened to XM360. Laserpointerstore took a screenshot from his Thor M2 review video and posted it as a picture for the Thor M2. I just know realized this htpow site also stole a screengrab of his Sanwu pocket review and put it as the front image for their "Sanwu"

Just another Chinglish worthless trash reseller company. Makes me want to vomit.

Well hey, someone said they'd resell ping pong balls had they had nothing else. Maybe that picture is sort of a way to ease into it LMAO 🤣

Like this.. This is insane:mad:. I don't know if they are the same size and the double die is a bit overdone but i'm seeing some big problems with coin collectors. Iv'e heard they already are here in the states big time.
