  • Not bad for the price...

    Pros:

    Great price for a stainless steel flashlight.

    Nice size for everyday carry (EDC)...stainless should last a long time.

    Emitter was centered well and threw a nice smooth beam from spot to spill...no cree rings on mine.

    Tint was nice and white.

    Definitely a XPE Cree led.

    Very dim and useful low mode.

    Bright enough for most task and modes are well spaced.

    O-rings in all the right places.

    Thick glass lens and stippled OP reflector.

    Cons:

    Build quality is disappointing...

    Head diameter was slightly bigger than the body.

    Tailcap was made deeper than the Ultrafire C3 SS to accomodate tailstanding but it actually makes it a bit harder to depress the tailcap button since it's recessed deeper.

    Threads were rough and dirty.

    Very short threads on the head...took about 1 or 1.5 turns to screw it all the way down.

    Tailcap has sufficient thread.

    Dimmer than Ultrafire C3 SS (5-mode Q5).

    Mushy tailcap...even after tightening the clicky module.

    OtherThoughts:

    This light is slightly longer than the Ultrafire C3 SS light...

    Bottomline:

    A great light for the price and the addition of a very low, low-mode and smooth beam makes it quite useful. Modes are well spaced out...not a bad buy.
