Nice collection! How are the LED Lensers?
Led lensers have good build quality(like Fenix) I realy like the P3 with to zoom u have basicaly 2 options ; focused ,and this other very cool looking big blue circle it spreads the light very evenly everywere in the circle, acctualy its more usefull then the focused beam cuz that's not very nice .P14 looks ,feels steardy nice throw in complete darkness I would say 170m useful light amount.

Yeah, nice collection!


I have a few MAG Industries, Surefire, Nitecore, Fenix, plus Ultrafire, Spiderfire, etc. but I'm not particularly into them. I appreciate a good light as long as it's not too expensive. I sometimes help my mates on British forums get Chinese flashlights. I group bought 2,500 keyring flashlights for britishblades and procured another 2,500 for bushcraftuk's magazine and did some $6,000 worth of group buy for about LED 75 torches in the 1,000 lumen range again on britishblades. I generally try to avoid it though, as after-sales customer support and replacements of postal-losses is a killer.
Cool !
Can you tell your experiance with Ultrafire and Spiderfire?I wanted to buy them but I hear they have poor build quality and lot of times need to fix them right out of package in orter to work.Cheap torches claim much more lumens that they acctualy produce and cuz of this for me is hard to invest in them. Anyway have you heard about Tank007 torches they are small but claim to prodice at least lot of lumens

Factory quality control is indeed a bit iffy. The proportion of dodgy lights is low, but they work on the presumption that if you have a problem you will return it for a replacement. Therefore the customer service and location of your vendor is important.

However, a large proportion of the lights that have problems are fakes. One internet supplier (dealextreme) originally bought originals from Ultafire, but Ultrafire soon noticed that they were selling close copies under Ultrafire label with copied or defective parts.This hurt UF's rep a lot until people on candlepowerforums and other forums noticed that dealextreme had become so brazen that they had started producing new models under the Ultrafire label that even Ultrafire denied they had ever made.

Spiderfire is like Ultrafire, but a newer, much smaller competitor.
Interesting. I am up on CP but I never heard about this copying issue. Its true for sometime I did not check it so it must be new. I thought DX is good cuz everybody reccomends it.
Thanks for the news mate
