    Just received mine yesterday from LAPG. Very fast switching between low and high and it has a glass lens.

    Very nice beam and tint. The head appears well glued!

    Just ordered one from LAPolice gear for 108, I wonder when I'll get it? Haha. It says it's only backordered 1-2 weeks, is this what it said for you guys that ordered it at christmas time and are just now getting yours?

    Previous delays were due to a shortage of reflectors, but that has been resolved and SureFire is starting to catch up on backorders (a bunch of them went out to dealers last week). Hopefully it won't take too long...

    I ordered one from Nalpak, Inc. on Feb. 24. Price was $108.50. It was in stock, and shipped the same day. I received it March 1, shipping was free. It is a very nice light.

    That's good to here. How can places sell this light for only $108, when surefire is selling it for $165? Hey, I am not complaining though.

    SureFire recently changed the way its Dealers can advertise its products. I believe it was a contracted Minimum Advertised Price. It now appears Dealers can advertise at a price they decide.

    I have to ask, why isn't this light more popular? I mean a factory 500 lumen light from Surefire for alittle over $100? Isn't that like a CPFers dream? Maybe I am missing something. I mean there isn't even a review for it in the review forum, it kind of boggles the mind. Maybe it is the lack of upgrade/interchangeability in these new SF lights? What gives

    Two reasons:
    a) UI of 2 levels (acceptable in the Surefire Backup because of the size and its intended role)
    b) low first.

    not a real reason, more of a personal observation -
    c) 500 lumen is way to much for mostly indoor use.

    Cheers

    ^^agreed. I was seriously planning on buying a Fury but when I saw it comes on in low first I lost my enthusiasm for potentially buying this. :/

    The new defender will probably be what you are looking for, it goes on High first, then low.

    If at all, then I am waiting for the ZM2 (depending on the price) since it is a single mode light. If I need a lower setting, I surely have other lights with me that can provide the lumen I need. Especially since I would consider the 500 lumen of the ZM2 too specialised.

    Cheers

    I guess it all depends on preference. I see what you are saying for tactical reasons, but 95% of the time I will probably use the 15 lumen mode anyway, so it coming on first makes sense for me.

    Got mine a few days ago. I'm impressed with it, especially at the $0.22/lumen price. Low coming on first is a plus for me. I do however seem to have a faulty switch. When I press for off it sometimes stays on. I'm not worried tho, Surefire will replace it.

    I agree with jalcon, I just use my Fury for around the house, walking the dogs, and use it when I am cooking on the grill at night. The Fury is perfect for this type of work. I do want the new DM2 Defender for my night stand when it comes out. For a tactical light, I can see why people wouldn't like the Fury but for an everyday light, the Fury works great for me.

    I know they have not been released yet but I'll ask anyway. Surefire's 2012 catalog lists both the Fury and DM2 as 500 lumen with slightly different candela, 9400 to 9700 respectively. The LX2 candela is 13000 for the 500 lumen model. Higher candela means tighter beam and more throw, right?

    If total output (lumens) is identical, that is correct.

    Just got my Fury back from warranty. They sent me a brand new one, this one has the glass lens, flawless beam and no issues, perfectly satisfied with it . Thanks to Surefire for excellent service.

    Hello,

    Just want to tell you that the Fury works good on Two AW ICR 123 / 16340 3.7 Volt / 750 mAH rechargable batteries.

    The problem using one 17670Cell is that the regulation of the lamp doesn't work very well.
    With a full 17670 Cell (AW, 1600mAH) it takes about 2 Amperes at 4.1 Volt but when the Voltage goes under 4 Volt, the current drops and even so the brightnes (though you don't see it so easy at first).
    the good thing about this is, that you have useful light for nearly one hour (because the lamp takes less power from the cell when the Voltage drops).

    With two full Cells the lamp takes only 1 Ampere at 8.2 Volt, so the lamp takes the same power from the Cells which says it isn't "overdriven".
    You have full bright light for about 30 Minutes till the Light drops off immediately (you can't even use the low mode, it's totally off for some minutes).
    after some minutes, you can switch it on again for some seconds.
    The lamp got very warm with the two cells lying on a table in a warm room. After 20 minates it reaches 55° C (130 Fahrenheit) till i cooled it down with water.
    this is very hot but on a normal use, the lamp is cooled from the hands or wind outdoors, so it wouldn't get that hot.


    So both Alternatives (one 17670 or two 16340 Cells) have their advantage, but i prefer two cells because i know i get the maximum light out of the lamp.
    The best is to use CR123 Batteries because the regulation works best on them, but for everyday use, the rechargables are much cheaper.

    I used the two 16340 cells about ten times now without any worry.

    Best regards, Hendrik

    How much further will the Fury throw than the 6px pro?

    Just took my G2X Pro out which is the same head as the 6PX Pro. I compared it to my new FURY, there is quite a difference in throw even though these are not throwers. Fury puts a lot more light out.
