Hi guys, well I find myself finally in the market for a heavy hitter - have owned PLENTY of Surefires, Malkoffs, Ras, Fenix, 4Sevens and Zebras, but never managed to break the 300 lumen mark... The output/runtime was never worth it to me.
Howevever, seems like the technology has finally caught up with practicality and value. Don't want to spend more than $100 and have been doing my research and narrowed it down to the ZL SC600, 4Sevens X10, S12 and Fenix TK35.
My primary uses will be walkin the dog, when I need a lot of light on the trail NOW and a general WOW light. I am looking for the best compromise between runtime and output and also a nice mix of throw and flood. Battery choice is not too big of a concern as I have plenty of 18650s and can charge the 26650 in my Pila.
So I ask you guys, which would you recommend if you could only own one?
My gut tells me the X10, especially since I cannot ignore the low sub-$70 price of it now.
Thanks in advance
