  • Well built, nice finish

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

    Pros:

    + Very well finished, adjustment of the different pieces seems to be very good
    + Powerful and even beam
    + Compact size, useful clip

    Cons:

    - Tailcap switch is not very easy to reach with the thumb, it's a bit far in the tube
    - When off, the switch rattles a bit
    - Compared to AAA model like the Akoray K106 it's a bit large and long to carry in my inner suit pocket, but it's still low profile enough

    OtherThoughts:

    Beam is quite pleasant, floody and even, not too blueish.

    Bottomline:

    Apart for the switch, the general finish of this flashlight is quite impressive for this price. Sure it's still more expensive than a lot of other models on DX, but it's still a very interesting offer which can compare to well-known and pricier brands. Mine really uses a XP-G emitter, as advertised on the page.
