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

Pros:
Extremely good machining, smooth exterior.
Great threads, amazing!
Nice big smooth reflector, small hotspot and huge spill.
Versatile 18650/AAA/CR123a
Slow strobe.
Pretty clean, no fingerprints or dust.
Cons:
Low is still very high output.
Reflector and lens looks glued (not sure)
Other:
Amazing flashlight! The feel of the exterior machining is very high quality. Threads are very well machined, screws and unscrews smoothly. Very versatile I use 18650's but in case of emergency, you can use a x3AAA cartridge (included) or 2XCR123a with the same nylon tube for the 18650.
The only con, apart from the glued aluminium reflector and lens, is the fact that the high mode has little difference with the low. I didn't have a multimeter handy but it looks like low is around 60% of high. Strobe is nice slow, perfect for biking.
Feels very confortable on hand, not too light, not too heavy. A bit big for EDC, but will fit on a jacket pocket nicely.
Bottomline:
Perfect deal, this torch will not disapoint you.
Thank you DX for another perfect deal!
