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

Pros:
+This light is very bright.
+The hot spot is quite tight, throws well.
+Bright enough spill to be acceptable in closer quarters, but seems to be more suited for larger distances.
+Easy to switch through modes.
+Mode memory works great.
+Even on low the light is very useful.
+Very easy to open head to swap modules.
Cons:
-Threads a little dirty, had to clean & oil.
-2x protected cells (sku. 8683) Damaged my module by over-tightening. :(
-"SOS" (SOSOSO) and strobe mostly useless.
Other:
Can make 2x protected CR123A cells fit by removing the first PVC spacer from around the spring in the tail cap. This will make it easier for the switch to pop out while the tail cap is removed, but when batteries are in it feels solid. Might want to try this before forcing the tail-cap on tight if your cells are a tight fit.
Bottomline:
Awesome light, very pleased. Good if you want a small powerful flashlight for relatively cheap and are not too concerned about run time.
