    Involvement:Novice  (still getting used to it) - Ownership:1 day to 1 week

    Pros:

    Flashlight is very bright – construction of this unit is integral concept brightness.

    Unique double groups of modes with mechanical switch – you must turn head on half rotate to switch in 5 modes group and reverse to stop, if you want 3 modes group – original mechanism, unusual for most Chinese flashlights.

    Forward click switch in tail – if you fanatic of tactical gadgets, this is for you.

    Tail cap is water resist with special plastic thread disk for press to cap.

    Big smooth reflector – this is very good for power LEDs (XM-L, SST) – throw to 100…120 meters with even light power.

    Power supply with minimum 2xLi-ion – good voltage for long runtime with stabilized brightness.

    Fast strobe and SOS cycle – if you want to have multifunctional flashlight.

    Quality of build is traditional for FandyFire – this is fourth of FandyFire flashlights (I have SKU 90124, SKU 90123, SKU 59595 – only positive emotions).

    Cons:

    Unique construction – hard for upgrade:

    1. “Pipe style” construction of pill with unique massive base of emitter – but heat sink is very good.

    2. Unique construction of driver special for this housing – double groups of minus contacts for double groups of modes.

    3. Reflector press on glass lens – when you unbolt the head, glass is drop.

    Unscrewed all thread connections – traditional for all Chinese flashlights.

    OtherThoughts:

    This is power flashlight with tactical bent – forward click, power light with medium throw (150 meters is finish of light), matt housing plated, long springs in tail and head. I’m waited the power thrower, but this is good for tactical games and searching on near and medium distance. This flashlight must liked for bicyclists. Ideal flashlight for real life.

    Bottomline:

    Tactical monster. Cheapest clone of sure in DX store. Quality and design unusual for most Chinese flashlights.
