    Default Beamshots: Fenix TK70, TK41 vs Olight SR90, M3X vs 24W and 35W HID!

    On the Easter Weekend we had a small flashaholic meeting. There was really nice collection of flashlights so we took some beamshots

    I was really surprised how Olight SR90 and Fenix TK70 (prototype) compete with 24W Tactical HID and G&P 35W HID. I know that better HIDs with good smooth reflectors would still blow those LEDs away, but these cheap HIDs are no more competition for LEDs!

    Below are the most interesting beamshots, you can find more beamshots here http://www.ledmania.cz/recenze/velik...-test-svitilen

    The distance to the tree in the center is 85 meters.

    Fenix TK70

    The TK70 is *definitely* on my to buy list. From the looks of the beamshots, I prefer the beam profile of the TK70 over the SR90.

    Those are awesome beamshots - thanks a lot for posting those.
    I now know that I must get the TK70 when it comes out.
    Also, I'd been wondering what the Olight M3X looked like - thank god I haven't pulled the trigger on one, as I prefer the TK-41 to the M3X.

    Fenix hits a good balance between spill and throw - I really like that.

    This sucks guys. I've been a lurker at CPF for a number of years. I've only posted a couple of things about testing batteries a while ago, and other than a couple of lights I received as gifts I've been able to keep my affliction under control. I finally broke down when Fenix announced the TK41 and now I'm going to HAVE to get the TK70 ... oh and the TK60 also Oh yea, and I recently bought a Quark. I think I'm relapsing. Is there a rehab for our condition?

    There should be a recovering flashaholics subforum lol. I can picture each of us coming to the front of the room and going : '' Hi, I'm Marc and I have been sober for a year now.'' I have a wild imagination...

    TK70 use Ni-Mh battery or Li-ion battery?

    @ jirik_cz
    You said in the other thread that the TK70 was run on 2 x li-ion D cells. Is that what's being shown or 4D Nimh? Does it make a difference?

    The beamshot published here was taken with 4x D NiMH batteries. I have also beamshot with 2x D li-ions and the brightness is exactly the same.

    It'll come to you wrapped in a beam of light, then a voice is going to say in a whisper : ''my preciousssssss''.

    I really am in a joking mood today so don't see any harm in the above haha.

    What would a cop do when he comes to your car with his light and you shine back with a TK 70? I guess it is not advisable but an interesting thought anyway.

    I wouldn't try this, but the mere thought of it is kind of funny. Cops in my area are still using small Maglites - I was pulled over the other week and the officer shined that mini Maglite at me - I was thinking to myself : ''hey, do you want to see what you guys should be using instead of those archaic flashlights''. I had my TK-15 next to me. Seriously, I'm sure oficers in my area have no idea there are such powerful small lights, otherwise you'd think they'd have made the switch. I found it to suck for a police officer to wield a small Maglight as their primary light.

    Even here, the cops are using Fenix instead of old Mags

    Is there still any word on when the TK70 will be released? I know that when it hits the market, it will be in my shopping cart pronto!

    If you are black or brown they would have shot your face off as soon as you reached for it.

    I've got the SR-90 and it's incredible. In fact, I took it up at night in my Cessna 177 and used it as a landing light. It's WAY brighter than the 2 stock Par 46, 4509Q, 100 watt halogen landing lights I have.

    The Cessna has a crank out window that allows the SR-90 to get a farily straight shot out at the runway. That Fenix must be stunning.

    SR-90, a couple of Surefire toys and a good number of LED lamps of all sorts
