It's a fun light, seeing that beam pierce the darkness makes me giggle every time.
I have been taking it to work too, I know it will be needed one day (I have needed a good thrower before, only had an SF L2 on me)
Walterk, RA, grayhighh,
Thanks for the comments, I am going to try and continue to do longer and longer beamshots (need to find somewhere with approx 2km of space)
I would also love to do a Lux/CP measurement on this light, from what I understand it's a 75w Gen2, but has one of ParkerVH's adapters and a Ushio UXL75-XE, which i believe is around the same brightness, but because of the bulb shape has less optical arc distortion than the stock bulb, so may have a slightly higher CP
Edit - Just measured my maxabeam (on low - indoors, at 8m - so not a great measurment, will try and do a better one at 100m tonight) Converting from EV to Lux and then to CP gave me a measurement of a little over 3.3 million CP
