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

Pros:
Very bright on high mode, good machining, heavy heatsink, heavy brass pill, good finishing... and did i mention very impressive looking flashlight...
Cons:
gets very hot on high mode, even on mid... might be a HP-FET in the driver, which is not very effective... by far no 1300 Lumens... I think iz has something between 700 and 800 Lumens out of the front...
Other:
If you want to order this flashlight, keep in mind that you will have to do same things bevore you can use it:
First: unscrew the pill and give some thermal compound on the treads bevore rescrew. Give some silicon grease on all other treads and orings. The oring which should seal the glass lens is a little to small. But you can "pull" it carefully above needed size, put it back and then fix it whithin a few seconds, than never oben at the front again... ;-)
Bottomline:
Keep in mind to buy some 18650 batteries whith low inner resistance because in high mode cheap 18650 will give up after 10 minutes...
Brighter then SSC-P7 flashlights, should be sent whithout charger, box and batteries (which makes it interesting for the customs) for a much lower price...
