Pros:
-> pretty decent throw, with usable flood -> the dim modes are actually dim, giving usable bright, medium and low mode. Should last for ever on low. -> mode memory -> 'SOS' is actually SOS (instead of SO SO SO SO)
Cons:
-> Like any P-60, thermal conductivity from the module to the body is poor -> the clip is soft steel, not springy -> the screw holes for the clip go all the way thru the body of the light -> The screws for the clip are mis-aligned, so the clip is crooked -> Strobe modes are useless
Other:
this is a good light, but it would be really nice without the strobe modes. The belt clip looks and feels really cheap. I think I'd go for the clip-less unit next time.
Bottomline:
Decent R2 unit, but there are better ones available on DX for similar $$$ (see the 504B, for example)
