Just out of curiosity:
If there is an H502 model with an 80 degree beam, would you buy the one with the 80 degree beam or the 120 degree beam?
I would buy the 80 degree beam for these reasons:
1. 260lm concentrated in an 80 degree beam would be very bright, I imagine bright enough to be as throwy as my H51w if not more.
2. The beam spread is still large enough for up-close tasks and run time would be very long.
3. I think an H502 with and 80 degree beam would be a two-in-one light combining both the H51 and the H501 into one light.
Please give a reason for your choice and if you own the H501. Thanks.
I am wondering if Zebralight's decision to make the 120 degree beam H502 a marketing or technical one. If it was a marketing decision, where did they get their data from since the H501 is a hugely popular light?
