    posted by theprocess on 03/16/2010

    Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:1 week to 1 month


    +bright white light with tight hot spot and useable spill (limited partly by the assault crown)

    +HAIII finish is nice - thick matte black finish

    +good size, nice hefty balanced feel

    +protected 18650s fit perfectly length wise (slight rattle, barely noticable)

    +deep threads and think orings in all the right places (shipped well lubed)

    +assault crown is sharp enough to do some damage

    +rubber ring makes cigar grip comfortable - clip doesnt get in the way

    +springy clip, doesnt get in way of full hand grip

    +antiroll head

    +mode memory works

    +included strap is decent (better than others)


    -doesnt come with 2*Assault crowns, just one and a cheapy plastic bezel

    -sharp edges on tailcap (had to take a file to round off the edges, leaving exposed shiny aluminum edge which is not idea)

    -threads needed to be cleared of metal shavings

    -overly complicated clicky system (too many parts that need to be aligned perfectly and the components are cheap quality to boot) - don't take it apart unless absolutely necessary and if you do you better be a legomanic

    -mode switching slightly delayed (slight but noticable)

    -clicky cover bulges out slightly making tailstanding a little lop-sided


    Reverse clicky, personally I'd like to see this flashlight with a forward clicky and 1 mode only. R2 has nice hotspot and decent spill but noticable ring/blank spot around corona.

    Comes shipped from DX wrapped in half popped bubble wrap. Come on DX, at this price you couldn't pop it a cardboard box

    Output measured at tailcap with single 18650 - Hi 1.0A, Mid 0.15A, Low 0.05A


    Good for general use around the house or backyard. Assault crown gives is a nice touch should you ever need to use it ;) Decent throw, decent spill but nothing too impressive here. One of the best looking flashlights available from DX.
