Break Away 1/4 Turn To The Flashlight Head To Access Strobe or Beacon Modes
If you like just using only three modes of brightness then just keep the head screwed down. Its that simple.
Well manufactured, functions as stated, useful features/modes, and astounding brightness for standard AA batteries
Respectable output and common power source makes this light a versatile alternative to a rechargeable primary.
The build is substantial, clean milling and the small clip is strong with a sturdy grasp on the body. Finish is consistent and has been holding up pretty well. Simple interface featuring a solid click ON/OFF with quick half press selection H, M, L. Practical lumen modes with separate access strobe and beacons. Seems to share the copper cr123’s deep reflector but smooth instead of OP. Putting the beams side by side, it’s got similar throw with a larger hotspot. There is an artifact which amounts to a slight discoloration dead center that does nothing to affect performance.
Most maratac twisties have jiggling batteries if you shake them, and so does this although not quite as bad. A reduction in ID would fix this, but I inserted a ¾” wide strip of pvc sheet that give the cells a tighter fit rendering it silent.
Love the weight and size of the light. Tail button has a nice click to it. I generally never have a use for the strobe effects on flashlights, so I am a HUGE fan of the 1/4 turn to activate it. Dont want to use it? Dont turn it! Fantastic flashlight! Oh! Its also super, super bright!!
I had another high end tactical light. it was a 1000 lumen, 18650 fueled light. Unfortunately it grew legs and took a walk somewhere. So I needed a good light to replace it, this light although lower output, to me it's way more versatile. Great size and weight for when you need may need to "persuade" if need be. And the fact that is uses the most commonly available AA batteries to fuel it, it makes it a very practical and useful light for EDC, work, walking the dog, leaving in the car. buy one. you can never have too many flashlights.
