So I sent out my Arctic about a week ago for a refund, and just today I got the S3 Expanded lens kit, which was unexpected. When I sent out the Arctic I wrote a note on the RMA paper saying I never received the Lens kit and wanted a refund on it as well. I wonder if they will give me a refund anyway or see that it was sent out.
Anyway, I decided to shine my lasers through them a bit and debated whether I should sell them to an Arctic owner or just keep them, well I found that they fit over the top of my 6x 215mW pocket mini and got pretty excited with the camera. The idea of a mini Arctic sure looks cool, hopefully Wicked doesn't steal this design and call it the FIRST mini laser or something.

(any pointers on taking upclose burning pics on a point and shoot camera would be much appreciated :))

I'm thinking I may keep the lens's, who knows, maybe they will work with the Spartan. Maybe I can put some tape on the threads and press fit the lens's on.

That single bar effect is neat. I can see that one used in video, like previewing a new car. Completely dark room with the vertical line running from the front to the back as if an AI computer was scanning to check that its perfect.

I'm surprised WL didn't offer just the lenses by them selves, that the user could exchange in and out of the trainer front. Seems like too much work/material/cost goes into supplying each effect in its own front piece vs just the glass.

I've used smooth medium thickness black electrical tape on the inner threads of the line lens and now it presses very tightly on the pocket mini, it takes a slight bit if strength to pull off so there's no worry about it falling off. I really have a good feeling it may just work with the Spartan.

Edit: lol the pics with the glasses on looks like the frog's point of view.

The underside of black electrical tape is a mess to clean off of things as it ages.
