Arrow Streamlight color temp comparison

UPDATE. I emailed Streamlight with a ton of pictures of the light, beamshots etc and they told me mine is 100% genuine. This is their response. "The color temperature range of the LED is the same for both products. The TLR-7 optic shifts the color temp to the warmer side as light passes through the optic material. The TLR-1 uses a reflector which does not shift color temperature."

Did Streamlight change the color temp of their lights or is it just because it is a different model? I have owned a TLR-1s (purchased when I was a Dealer) for a few years and am quite used to it. I just got a TLR-7a Flex (purchased on Amazon) and the color temp difference is night and day.

The TLR-7a looks genuine and it registered fine online. I am just always skeptical when buying anything on Amazon because of all the fakes out there.

Here are the 2 beam shots from 12" away. TLR-1s on the left TLR-7a Flex on the right.
