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
+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.
