  • decent little unit

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 day to 1 week

    Pros:

    -> pretty decent throw, with usable flood
    -> the dim modes are actually dim, giving usable bright, medium and low mode. Should last for ever on low.
    -> mode memory
    -> 'SOS' is actually SOS (instead of SO SO SO SO)

    Cons:

    -> Like any P-60, thermal conductivity from the module to the body is poor
    -> the clip is soft steel, not springy
    -> the screw holes for the clip go all the way thru the body of the light
    -> The screws for the clip are mis-aligned, so the clip is crooked
    -> Strobe modes are useless

    OtherThoughts:

    this is a good light, but it would be really nice without the strobe modes. The belt clip looks and feels really cheap. I think I'd go for the clip-less unit next time.

    Bottomline:

    Decent R2 unit, but there are better ones available on DX for similar $$$ (see the 504B, for example)
