    Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:1 day to 1 week

    Pros:

    Well built body and head, good heat dispention.
    Throws well and has a lot of spill too.
    I normally walk my dog at night with a FlashMax X950 - 5xQ5wc and this light is almost as bright.
    It throws less but still lights up tree's at 100m.

    Cons:

    Switch modes are useless for me, the pro is that when you select the proper mode it always starts in that mode.
    The threads needed a bit of oil/grease
    The led wasn't perfectly aligned in the reflector

    OtherThoughts:

    The best upgrade for this light would be a 2x18650 version, that one i would buy instantly.

    Bottomline:

    The Cree XLM T6 surprised me overall.
    I have several other lights (FlashMax X950, Ultrafire C8/C9, WF501B, Aurora WF-600 and this light until now is the overall winner for me.
    Lightweight, good balance while holding it and a good trow/spill combo for me.
