Maybe THESE? Jayrob sells them and they are the only non Newwish styles I have seen. If those aren't it, link me a picture of what they look like and I will search around.

Peace,

Yup those are the LeadLight hosts. I messaged JayRob a few hours ago about the chrome version so hopefully he has one in stock. Unfortunately I won't be able to touch any of the stuff I've ordered for another two weeks because I am still away from home. Just knowing that I have a 520nm laser diode sitting at home waiting for me is gonna make me go crazy! :D

Just ordered one of these for the PL 520. Gonna be a little while before I get to build it, gotta have a heatsink made, and gotta save some money up for the diode.

^ Awesome choice!
Thank you sir, I have a weakness for the shiny hosts, something about that beam coming out of it, and the shine reflects the color of the laser, It just looks so good.

Eradicator You might like this :) This is my 520nm Solarforce L2T Special Edition with a focus knob from Fiddy.





And for performance it's not too bad

WOW that looks great, now I'm really excited to build this, I knew the green with that polished stainless would look awesome.

I have a new host for my PL520. I am having FlaminPyro machine out a heatsink for this model:



Its going to house a Panasonic 3400mAh cell with an X-Boost. I may even start selling 520s made in this host as well.
