    Nicely build stainless torch.

    posted by isotco on 12/28/2008 Certified Owner

    Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:more than 1 month

    Pros:
    Build and machining is excellent, output is good, especially on 14500's. Modded with a Q5 it gets even brighter,. Solid stainless body makes this torch into a workhorse, capable of taking a beating. Produces a nice beam with plenty of spill and a soft hotsp...
    Cons:
    Protected 14500 is about one milli meter to long, preventing you to tighten the tailcap all the way. No o-ring at lens.

    A real high-toned looking and feeling kinda light

    posted by frankiej on 05/06/2008 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    This light feels very expensive and solid. I feel like I should be slipping it into the pocket of my tuxedo in case the power goes out at the wine tasting exhibition or something. Really high quality for the price. I've bought lights that were twice the pri...
    Cons:
    The threads are a bit loose, but I don't expect it to cause any stripping problems, as it is good ol' stainless steel. It does ...

    Great looking but fragile

    posted by vaughan on 04/22/2008 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Its great looking and stainless steel! I've been looking for a stainless steel flashlight for some time now. Its small size made it perfect for my wife to use at night when wandering the dark house.
    Cons:
    I've had it for about 3-4 weeks and my wife dropped it last light and now it doesn't work anymore. Looks like it its inherited ...

    GET THIS LIGHT!!!

    posted by yekimak on 04/08/2008 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Stainless Steel!!!! And it is bright with an almost perfect beam. I just cannot get over the deal that this light is. The beam is as bright as some of my older Lux III lights that run on 2aa or 2xcr123, even brighter than some of them, it is well machine...
    Cons:
    The internal threads were a little dirty and needed to be cleaned up some. The supplied lanyard is not the best, but I don't u...

    Lot's of light and a little size.

    posted by skaping on 03/18/2008 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    It's bright on a Regular AA battery. Can't wait for the 14500's to charge to see how much brighter it gets. It's heavy for it's size but not too heavy. Small enough to put in my pocket yet just big enough for my hand. (I have big hands)
    Cons:
    It's not cheaper but even so it is well worth $21.00 It doesn't come in a neat box so you could give it as a gift.

    posted by alfreddajero on 03/18/2008 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    So far im really digging this little light....it has found a home in my pocket and it seems to like it there...lol....It puts out a nice warm spot with just enough spill to be happy with, and my friends are surprised at how much light is put out by this tin...
    Cons:
    I guess my only gripe is that the small torch gets hot within 30 to and hour of use.......I guess its because of it being made ...
