    Not a bad deal.

    posted by maadcow on 05/21/2010 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    It's plastic, so if the size isn't exactly right, you can hack away at it, sand it down, until it fits precisely where you want it to. Fits cree LEDs. Good for converting maybe an old incandescent flashlight.
    Cons:
    The paint job isn't the greatest. Because it's plastic, you're stuck with only a decent reflector. An "OP" surface op...

    Great tool for customizing or modding your lights

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

    Pros:
    Solid aluminum, has just about everything you need except the emitter and circuit board. Threads are in good shape, seem like they'll hold up.
    Cons:
    Make them in different sizes, so that you can have custom drop-ins! More sizes definitely a must!

    Great deal

    posted by maadcow on 05/21/2010 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Great light, bright, handy, good to have around, and pretty much disposable at this price. If you lose it, buy another!
    Cons:
    I'd be cool if there was some way to modify it so you can stick a cree LED in place of the 9-led. If the tailcap clicky was inv...

    I paid way more, and it was worth it then

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

    Pros:
    Awesome! The variable flood/throw makes this such a versatile flashlight. It's also got a recessed clicky button, so it can tailstand. You can put it on flood and it fills the room with light, it's awesome.
    Cons:
    I think a twisting mechanism would be more durable than a sliding one like this. Since it's a sliding mechanism, there's nothin...

    Pretty good circuit

    posted by maadcow on 05/15/2010 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Worked like a charm! It fit perfectly into the project I had in mind for it. I used it with sku.03475 and sku.10084 for some very nice results running off of two AA batteries.
    Cons:
    The price. I also didn't really like the 5-mode circuit. It fell off. I don't really see the point in the other 4 modes anyway....

    Fit perfect into a cheap flashlight.

    Pros:
    Worked like a charm! It fit perfectly into the project I had in mind for it. I used it with sku.03475 and sku.10084 for some very nice results running off of two AA batteries. Pretty awesome, actually.
    Cons:
    A bit pricy for a small piece of aluminum. The flashlight I installed this into cost 1/3 the price of just this reflector alone.

    In reality, kinda useless. Doesn't reduce bites.

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

    Pros:
    It gives you the hope that there might be less mosquitoes on you at night. Hope is hard to come by these days.
    Cons:
    It doesn't work. At all. It could probably save like... a million lives a year if it did.

    It works well with Sku 8244

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

    Pros:
    It really does filter out a lot of the tar that would otherwise enter your mouth and lungs.
    Cons:
    You have to take harder drags for the same amount of smoke. I also think it's made of PVC, which isn't exactly a good compound ...
