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

    Pros:

    Excellent build quality. Machining and surface treatment is top notch.

    A great thrower and nothing more. Forget using this as a normal flashlight, it has zero spill and a very focused beam with a narrow spread.

    Cons:

    Mine has a bent post for the led. It is bad! So I cant understand how it got past quality control. But nonetheless it performs well and the general build quality is excellent, and by far surpasses other Ultrafire flashlights I own.

    The other issue I have is that mine is without regulation and as a consequence it will not accept 2 x CR123A batteries. I tried it and talk about an angry blue LED!!!

    OtherThoughts:

    I think Ultrafire makes more model variations of this light and as a result they sometimes mix up deliveries and thats why I have receieved a model without regulation.

    Bottomline:

    Great light but only for distant lighting.

    The beam is less than a square meter at 10 meters distance and the useful spill is about zero.
