I really had no idea how many were produced, after all, how would I?
Even if the number is <10k, that doesn't make it any better.
I should be getting my Fury in the mail today, hopefuly it's flawless
Here's an interesting review of the Fury. It also discusses the new rechargeable batteries that SureFire will be selling.
OK... Time to stop lurking and start posting.... I overheard a salesman discussing a new Surefire offering. The Fury is suposed to throw five hundred lumens and cost around $160. Has anyone else heard of this? Thanks.
Sounds like a good deal for a Surefire.
I'm glad I found CPF, I was beginning to think I was strange

Thanks CPF, thanks Think2x
Current SF offerings have been trending more toward 160 lumens and cost around $500.The Fury is suposed to throw five hundred lumens and cost around $160.
Hope your rumour is correct and hope we see it sometime in the next five years!
Will it be part of the low end line like the 6PX/G2X?
Al knows but he's not talking...
I like the current Surefire output vs. price graph idea. Incredibly nerdy, but hey, that's why we're here. Quick way to analyze value. I think we've coined a new unit of measurement too: Lumen/dollars.
"If you look at this simple graph of current lumen/dollar values for our lineup of products, you can clearly see an inverse relationship between price and projected luminous flux, causing what we in the sales department call a downward sloping trendline ....." *trails off*
Relax people, I like SF.
It's not in their 2011 catalog. The new (and yet to be released) UNR Commander and UAR Aviator are both listed as 500 lumens, but I seriously doubt that they will be $160. Was this salesman from SureFire? I wouldn't count on this just yet...

"It used to be 'Merkwuerdigliebe'"
Perhaps $160 was dealer cost not what we would be paying?
I'm surprised this isn't creating more of a firestorm here on CPF.
I have to admit I'm skeptical but I'll still maintain a detached interest to this thread.
Any more information you can give us Guy?
FURY - trademarked by Surefire on Sept 1st:
Two guys that I believe were manufacturers reps were talking, one had a paper in his hand he was showing enthusiastically. "Surefire" caught my ear. The other details came along, then they looked at me, clammed up and moved elsewhere to talk. Time will tell. Sorry if this is just noise, but it sounded good to me!
Surefire Fury? i like the sound of that..
with a name like that, one would expect 500 lumens!
Pretty hard to find a Surefire with that amount of output for $160!
Wow no way!! What a bargain!! Wonder what LED it uses! From a measly 15 lumens to bang!! 500 Surefire lumens!
That will sure wake u up at night!!
Well how about that! Now how do I rationalize another Surefire purchase to my Wife?
Thats funny, the sales guys stop talking and move away. Like its secret squirrel espionage stuff.
I have to say its great that Surefire is definitley listening and watching the industry . This shows they want to have some cutting edge lights in the output department and stay current. But that is one ugly light. I really dont like the direction SF is going with the physical appearance of their civilian lights. They re definitley going for the toned down non threatening streamlined look. Just not my taste
and did you notice, a POLYcarbonate window!??? Plastic?????? On a Surefire?
"It used to be 'Merkwuerdigliebe'"
I can now confirm how much of a flashlight dork I am, I really did tilt my head a bit & think "wtf...". Good catch.
The whole point (IMO) of Surefire that was aside from slow production cycles in recent years (which is a biggie - also in IMO), that said still...no corners were cut. I hope the premium-reliability construction is still there...?
Interesting that Surefire managed to keep this one pretty quiet. I'm looking forward to reviews....
amateurs practice ‘till they can get it right – professionals practice ‘till they can’t get it wrong
I remember watching a youtube video of Surefire at a show introducing the new g2x/6px range of lights. He said that they were a result of Surefire listening to it's customers, who were after better priced light with Surefire's reliability. I guess the tradeoff for getting the prices down is to use cheaper materials.
Really though...that seems awfully forgiving. There are well under $50 lights with glass lenses. Are they the same as Surefires - no. But do they make one legitimately question the move to save (in bulk...$2/order $10 max? ) in a $150+ light...I just really can't imagine the savings being that big compared to the overall price. Seems like a cheap move to save a bit & capitalize on either ignorance or excessive brand equity...
I don't know but - this is kinda freaking me out. Surefire has gotten behind on emitters compared to 5 years ago but...to get behind on quality for a component? That's kinda weird sounding.

now if that had the optics of E1B or E2dL for example i'd be on that like flies on you know what
SLPP 4 AA LUX; AT-100 10 LED; ARC AAA P; photon 1;Pewter 2C M@G with LED drop in; NEXTORCH Saint HID; SF E1B; RR 2AAA headlight; Vector 1 MIL CP spotlight: Q-Beam 2 Mil CP spotlight ;Sams HID; L2D RB 100; 6P
Get one before the price goes up, ala KX4's, G2X, 6PX...
Wonder when we'll see one with a combat grip? Looks like the Stratum, part deuce...
