    Pros:
    This is a good host for lasers. I need to build my first one and this is the host that I turned to. The metal body is great and allows for good protection. The board is easy to access and easy to utilize. Even if it is not modded then this is still an amzin...
    Cons:
    The metal treadings are very good but take a bit to make sure they are securly screwed on tight. Otherwise this is a good flash...

    Pros:
    Great price for this light. Pretty decent build quality. The clicky is solid and works well.

    posted by motorider826 on 06/09/2008 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    This flashlight is small yet sturdy. It is fairly bright. It can be taken apart easily and upgraded.
    Cons:
    Threads stick a bit. Could be brighter, but it is still fairly bright as is. Doesn't work on 3.6v batteries without upgrade

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

    Pros:
    Cheap, bright flashlight. Very focused beam, color wasn't too bad either. Easy to use, just put in some batteries and you are set.
    Cons:
    I wouldn't trust the waterproof claim. The o-rings on mine were sticking out all over the place because they didn't quite fit. ...

    posted by spencer on 02/26/2008 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    This flashlight has a very nice feel and look to it, and I consider it an ideal size. It's neither too large nor too small. The look is professional, and it has a good-sized clicky at the rear.
    Cons:
    There were some artifacts in the light beam (as in holes) that were corrected by maneuvering the reflector around a bit - a bit...
