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

    Pros:

    Lots of little extras:

    -glow o-ring inside reflector/tailcap.

    -metal reflector/pill is removable

    -clip is removable

    -clicky is removable (from inside )

    -removable from pill (screws)

    -smooth transition from spot to flood (no donuts)

    Cons:

    - on AA the high and low are the same intensity

    (Unable to confirm a difference with 14500)

    -a larger than other AA lights

    -reverse clicky switch

    -very slight blue tint to the LED

    OtherThoughts:

    -on AA's the lumens are more like 120 lumens

    -hot spot is not as tight as EZAA

    -Good light for moders as components are easily removed

    -14500 is a nice option for the light

    -anodization was same for body and tail cap.

    -Clicky has a nice crisp feel to it, and is nicely recessed for EDC

    Bottomline:

    Nice light, slightly overpriced, but worth the changes that can be easily done later to the light.
