    Strong and cheap.

    posted by SamQu on 06/18/2013 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Surprisingly solid design, it's made from machined aluminum sections bolted together and I have confidence in it's overall structure and locking mechinism. The quality of the machining looks to be really good and it looks great.
    Cons:
    As with most blades out of china I am guessing the cutting edge isn't the greatest. Although it shouldn't make much of a differ...

    posted by SamQu on 05/17/2013 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    - Nice shape - comfortable - grippy end pieces - Light weight and fairly strong case with a zip up lid - comes with lens cleaning cloth
    Cons:
    This is trivial but I would prefer a magnetic latch on the case over zip up design.

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

    Pros:
    - Very thin light but packs a surprising punch. - Has a nice construction with some plated tabs that are super easy to solder to. - Very bright, would light up a small room no problem.
    Cons:
    - Needs a regulator unless the voltage suppy is quite constant, will be destroyed hooking it up to a car power supply. - Came b...

    simple and effective

    posted by SamQu on 04/18/2011 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    This light is a very basic 3 mode design where it goes from all LED's on, all flashing and lastly a nightrider style chasing led. Has a decent brightness and I am sure it would be readily visable for others on the road.
    Cons:
    The mount and overall design feels a little flimsy, and doubts about weather protection, see below. Button can be a little hard...

    Excellent product

    posted by SamQu on 12/25/2010 Certified Owner

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:more than 1 month

    Pros:
    - trustworthy lock mechinism that can't be accidently triggered - very solid design with very little blade flex - blade even has bushes so it's very smooth to open and shut - Belt clip is very firm and long so it likely to be able to actually hold onto a...
    Cons:
    Not much to say apart from one of the screws fell out without much use, while I did find it to screw back in it fell out again ...

    Needs work

    posted by SamQu on 12/25/2010 Certified Owner

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:more than 1 month

    Pros:
    Cheap and has a solid chromed steel frame that runs though it's whole length. The wooden handle is well braced to the steel frame under it.
    Cons:
    The twin ellastics use a creative way of restraining to the body in that they have a singular steel ball inside each tube that ...

    Pros:
    - very easy to use - adjustable focus flame works great - potentially very handy trigger lock to leave flame on for hands free use - feels surprisingly solid
    Cons:
    - had some initial trouble running it where it would not ignite, I thought it wouldn't accept any gas however it was already fu...
