That looks handy, they're a pain in the arse when you're whipping them on and off. It's not even as if you can slip it into a pocket easily with the shape of them as they come.. :thumbs:

Millet, you should drill a 25mm hole in the center of that filter, you will get a better beam, without losing the colour

I cut all but 1 lobe of mine, and melted/bent it 90 degrees from it's original position, it slips on and off no problem, wrap 2x round with insulation tape and it is a snug fit.

That's a smart idea but looks too permanent for me. :thumbs:

To be honest I did it too mine and wised i never, Dont get me wrong i still use it now after two seasons but it throw a circle white beam rim when the filters on and it takes a bit of getting used too, But i do get more range with the hole driled into it than without it


Wish i would of left mine alone now, (Infact mental reminder get a new filter for the season lol)
