will every light head need a convertor now or will theyll be stand alones? are they at least 3 mode now? LOL
The video said the QUAD-S is 60% brighter... I was expressing faux outrage over that claim.Quads have a different optic all together and is a 60 degree spread. Anyone expecting same forward warning of such an optic compared to a 40 is a Moron
You are mixing quad and fusion terminology…. That’s why I made my statement.The video said the QUAD-S is 60% brighter... I was expressing faux outrage over that claim.
The optics on the QUAD-S is not the same as the QUAD...
Based on cost of the surface mounts it’s a 20% price increase.Feniex started out making cost effective lights so it is nice to see them stick to something less whackerific for a change. We all like multi function/color heads but not everyone needs/can afford them. Hopefully they keep the price point in the realm of T6/single color fusions. Be interesting to see how they integrate with the quad technology.
Feniex fusion-s....just like the cobra T6, but not really.
Holy mackerel!You are mixing quad and fusion terminology…. That’s why I made my statement.
FUSION-S has a 40° optic… just as Fusion Single and Dual color have a 40° option.
The QUAD “VERSION 1 QUAD” (As you stated) is a completely different light. Fusion was already different in terms of light output. You may just be fucking around… but someone coming here looking for info doesn’t know that. Just wanted to clarify it.
For the Record: Fusion-S is replacing previous versions of the Feniex Fusion Series. It apparently is being upgraded to have more of the same firmware as the quad, but it will only have one color LED.
The QUAD line has 4 colors per OPTIC… because of that Feniex had to make them a 60° type optic. They may share the same foot print, but the Feniex Quad and Feniex Fusion-S lines are completely different types of lights.
As far as it being 60% brighter than the previous fusion? Not sure how that will happen but the guys over at FEVER have a meter to test light output. They will probably be able to post some actual real world data once they get them.
Any dealer that still stocks more than a week's worth of any Feniex product is insane. Product changes are always backwards NOT compatible, cost the same amount, and have the same part number, so your existing inventory becomes eligible for museums and nothing else.The first thing I hear in the Fusion S marketing advertisement is "oops, we originally made a shitty optic because we rush everything to market, so here is v2. By the way, all of you stocking dealers are fucked."
Bias aside, repeating past mistakes is all I can see from this company anymore.
well this new product is 20% more expensive but yeah... it hurts dealers. This weiner didn't have the heart to deal with it any longer. You can only burn a weiner so many times before it gives out.Any dealer that still stocks more than a week's worth of any Feniex product is insane.

The pricing is almost irrelevant...Whelen costs a lot more, and dealers sit on warehouses of their stuff. The difference is that Whelen won't release a CenCom that has 3 siren tones, then 2 months later re-release it with 5 more tones under the same exact model number. Let alone they won't tell the dealers (officially), so half of us are still marketing it as a 3 tone unit, and have 15 units on the shelf that now are 80% less awesome.

I am a dealer for a while now...I think 2014? I've watched the stunts pulled on Python, Cobra, Fusion, Quads, the sirens, etc. There's a reason I won't stock more than a pair or 2 of anything...it's because I've watched @Carlos SpicyWeiner get nailed time and time again.Abe, I don't know if you're a dealer for Feniex, but if you're even remotely familiar with them, their intention is to offload as much stock to dealers as they're willing to buy, incentivising all along the way. Then, while you're sitting on a healthy amount of stock thinking you got a good deal, out comes the Fusion and all of your Cobra variants are paperweights. I know this is a common occurrence in business, but people learn. For over a year, Feniex will plan a product-line upgrade, wll while still trying to get the little guy to buy it and put it in a warehouse. Then, Feniex can claim they sold millions in product, but most of it is sitting in poor dealer's warehouse.
Seeing as nothing has ever been "made" in America since their business's shady beginnings, insiders are the only ones that know the true inner workings, and dealers are NOT insiders.
They felt like quad and dual color competed too closely on price… at least thats what was said. This really allows them to have significantly less sku’s though. Makes it easier on them for inventory and manufacturing plansJust curious so they will no longer market the fusion dual color ? Only single color fusion s or quad ?
