Hey all! I just received my Overspec "5mW" Greenie in a Sexy Viper Host from SwimminSurfer256's sale...

http://laserpointerforums.com/f39/sale-5mw-sexy-viper-host-green-laser-pens-21-44-a-67346.html



This arrived in just 3 days!

First I just want to say this one word: "class".

This is a classy ass laser. It's not powerful, but it sure is nice looking and performs beautifully.

NOW ON TO THE DETAILS!

The host is akin to the Dragon Laser's Viper host. It's not exactly the same, but it looks like it. This is NOT a cheap knock off. It is very well built and feels great when holding it. It is not a matte finish on the body like the NewWish pens. It has a really nice looking glossy finish.

It arrived in a really nice case...



... I really prefer this case over the gray ones. Just to emphasize the class of this laser, the word "laser pointer" is in cursive :)







This next photo is just to give a size comparison of this laser and my Lazerer Mini as well as my Super Over-spec Greenie.



In my opinion, this laser warning sticker is nicer than the foil ones on other lasers... But that's not too important of a factor... But its still nice :)



To put batteries in this, you unscrew the very back cap off the laser and insert 2 AAA batteries so they form a case positive connection.



Here's two pictures just displaying the host and how nice it looks :D



I'd like to note that the switch feels great. It does not rattle around. The batteries rattle a little bit, but maintain constant connection.



Now here's a picture of the dot in daylight on a white wall



Over all I'd say this is a great laser! It is a great, classy, low power pointer. I've wanted a lower power pointer to have just for safe pointing.

Estimated Overspec Output: 25mW-35mW! :tinfoil:

It's a little more powerful than I had anticipated, but I'm not complaining :)

Thanks SwimminSurfer256! :thanks:

Beamshots!


(This is one of my favorite beamshots)













I'll try to get some more tonight when it'll look fuller :eg:

Huzzah. Do you have an LPM?


No, i wish i did :p I am guessing though that it is not exactly 50mW. I believe it has the potential of a 35mW-40mW.

I'd recommend getting an LPM! Jerry sells great, inexpensive ones and it's a real good thing to have one :)

Cool. Do you have a picture of the LPM Reading?
No. Sorry, im only 16. I dont own a camera at the moment. I would rather buy more lasers than a new camera so i get a collection started.
