I have Klarus XT11 and RS11.The RS11 is heavier and bigger but I use it more just because of its easier pressing the buttons.RS11 is not tactical as XT11 because the best place for a switch of a tactical flashlight is the tail of the flashlight.But I feel the switch of RS11 more precise and comfortable for every day use.Once I had to do quickly two short momentary blinks for signal with XT11 but because of the harder pressing the buttons I can't press momentary precise enough and I switched to constant-It wasn't good in the situation .
RS11 is perfect for using momentary and can be used momentary for all 3 light levels.
The only not very comfortable thing is the time for memory mode.3 seconds is too long and you need to remember it if you don't want to have a problems with UI.
I avoid accidentally switching the flashlight in the holster as I stick it with the buttons to the corner of the holster and I don't have problems.
Just remember a few specific things about RS11 and you will be very happy with the flashlight.
3 seconds for mode change is waaaay too long. Also, while many other manufacturers are understanding the market by hiding the strobe mode which only a few actually use at all, this light makes strobe way too easy to inadvertently activate. Making better use of the dual buttons without dedicating one button just for strobe (which is just too unusual for me) would make this light much much better. But as it stands now with one button dedicated just for strobe, no way. The UI on this light really needs to change.
The recharger port, however, seems good. Just change it to a higher-amperage recharger by making it to plug into a regular wall socket. The USB is too low an amperage source.

flashlion - thanks for your answers.
Do you prefer the dedicated strobe button as-is or would you prefer both buttons to perform various multiple functions or.....? If you had your choice, what would each button do?
One thing I don't like so much is the 3 sec time for remembering the last used mode.
The main button for ON/OFF and the second for changing mode is good variant,but we can't change the UI and I enjoy it such as it is.I like to use the strobe even for fun.
