Thread: Looking for a new 2xAA Thrower

    Default Looking for a new 2xAA Thrower

    Hello, I have been updating my lights this year and my 2xAA Thrower is next in line for replacement. I will be using this for hiking/camping/night time fishing, things like that. I have a zebralight h51f for floody needs, I will be ordering a Spark SD73 in about a week. So what is the best 2xAA thrower available right now ? I would love the zebralight q50 but this company is just taking to long to get that (and the H502) released.

    Thanks in advance for your time

    +1 for IFD2 due its design quality and infinite ring adjustment. But its quite pricey tho

    I have the IFD2 and while it is a great and very versatile light it is certainly not a thrower. It sends out a wall of light but something with a bigger reflector diameter is realistically the only way to get good throw from a AA light.
