Pros:
It give a very tight focused beam, makes a great spot light. Being focused it is also much brighter. Build quality is very good (couple of sharp edges though).
Very Very Different from other torches.
Cons:
Beam is more square than round, because of the LEDs die, but thats not a real problem, especially at distance.
A little pricey when compared to other Q5 torches on DX, but still you can't get one like this cheaper anywhere else.
Other:
Because of the price I was a little reluctant to buy at first, however glad I did. A pressure switch would make this ideal for gun mounting.
Bottomline:
If you want a torch for walking at night then something like SKU.16541 would be better. If you need more of a spot for searching/hunting then you can't go wrong with this.
