This light is an exceptional piece of technology. It is relatively compact, highly adjustable, and has a reflector that is exceptionally efficient. The SST-50 LED is a gem, and easily outshines my Olight M20 and M20S (with smooth reflectors), Olight M21, Olight M30, Surefire M6, Surefire 6P (with 300 LM light engine upgrade), Streamlight SL20XP, and puts most lights of similar size to shame.
The beam is similar to my M20S with a smooth reflector, but the intensity is much greater. The low setting is still bright, and the medium setting is more than sufficient for many tactical applications. The high setting really has reach, and appears to live up to the impressive 700-meter claim. It’s good to be a flashaholic…
I ordered the light on Friday, and received it Monday afternoon. Kudos to Battery Junction for their exceptional customer service! I wouldn’t be surprised to see this item back-ordered – it’s that good.
