If my memory serves me correct didn't you win a photo comp with the second image ?

Blimey, you're right, yes - I'd forgotten all about that. Won a Stenlight - the best prize I ever won. Possibly the only prize I ever won :)

Yes, and very well too thanks - I used it today on a job in fact. I upgraded the battery to one of Roy's when mine finally died and there were no more replacements available, and so far, no issues. It is a lovely light, with the best wide soft-edge flood ever. My only fear is that I have no spare cables left for the headset half, so I have to be really careful not to trash this one. It's great for close-up work and bolting, etc., but still very bright.  I got one of Roy's Dragons on a separate helmet for the more powerful spot in the bigger venues.

I have a load of Stenlight spares, but no cables or PCBs. I have brand new bodies of all things, possibilities?
