I just received my DEFT EDC the other day and have been remiss in posting. For that I am sorry. I own many lights but have always had a soft spot for lights that THROW, my initial experience being with some of Mac's HIDs, including the Elephant. I later became somewhat taken by the Aspherical lens designs and purchased several by Ledean and Mac. These were based on the Maglight platform and had, as I recall 50mm (or thereabouts) aspheric lenses. The performance was phenomenal! I had the opportunity to purchase two smaller aspheric designs by a company called Chapman. These were interesting lights with defocusing mechanisms but nowhere near the power of the Mag-based lights I had.
Then, I was most fortunate to find a new light by a guy by the name of saabluster, the DEFT, thethe ultimate aspheric light saber casting LED dies hundreds of yards! I had been spoiled by the smaller lights by Chapman but longed for a better performing light. What if a small sized aspheric COULD perform near the level of some of the "big guns"? I just got that light the other day as I've said.
When I received the DEFT EDC light I thought it resembled a ray gun out of Flash Gordon---rings glore and alternating annodizing and shiney Aluminum. From a size perspective it's about the same as my U2. That's about where the similarities end however. Up front is an aspheric lens, looking out the barrel as a bug eye. Pop in a freshly charged 18650 and awaaay ya go, casting the familiar but more squarish die shape near as far as one of my Mag based lights but....BUT...in a most portable EDC-sized light! This light is an incredible achievement for saabluster and this light truely turns the corner in terms of an amazing throwing light in a carry sized package.
It has become my current carry light into the fields spotting wildlife in the wee hours of the morning. Try it, you'll LOVE it!
Edit: One very important aspect of the DEFT EDC that has been drawn from the OMG Lumens original DEFT is the placement of the lens, well BEHIND the front of the bezel. One major downfall of many of the previous aspheric light designs was side light spill which forced the user to hold the light far in front of one's self to avoid being partially blinded. The DEFT EDC hs been designed so that this side spill is not a problem and this light may be used and held as any other light which one might carry.
