  • Good but a little odd.

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

    Pros:

    This is a very bright flashlight. I don't know how accurate the quoted lumen power is but it's bright enough for me.

    I like the sliding front end that can be used to focus the beam - it goes from tight, bright spot to a very wide floodlight.

    Cons:

    It appears to have an aspheric lens, which in itself is not a bad thing but when the front section is set to a tight spotlight, the light is rectangular instead of circular. This is because the l.e.d. is that shape and the lens replicates it in the beam.

    It's still very bright but I don't like having a square light.

    OtherThoughts:

    The body is well-made and it has O rings in all the right places.

    Bottomline:

    It's not the cheapest of flashlights on this site and I'm not sure if I would have bought it if I'd known about the shape of the beam. However, now I have it, I'm not going to return it and I'll probably get used to the odd shape.
