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

Pros:
Almost flawless machining (see cons)Very smooth, no sharp bits. Quality finish. No glue, body comes apart into 4 pieces. All joins O-ringed. Chunky aluminium OP reflector, glass lens(o-ringed). Very solid. Oversize head actually throws a beam. Bright. Much nicer overall than MTE AA rebel and UF C3. Single mode forward clicky (the way all torches should be).
Cons:
OK, now I'm being really picky. Nice lanyard a tight fit over large hands. Hole it passes thru is not chamfered.
Other:
Its a cree, but the first one I have seen that is on the yellowish side of white. Not sure about the regulating circuit, but the brightness tapers off slowly, no sudden drop. 1.5A with new Alkaline, dim but usable light 3 hours later at .3A, .8 volts. Looks like this torch would be easily modified, and at the low price and unbelievable quality you cant go wrong.
Bottomline:
When it arrives in the mail.. I bet you get more of them.
