Thread: Surefire EB2 pictures

  1. #1

    Default Surefire EB2 pictures

    I stopped by Surefire to pick up some stuff and while looking in the display room happened to see these.

    There was an employee playing with the EB2. I asked about the light after hearing him say it ran for 5 hours on 2 123's. if I heard correctly. I asked if it was the same head as the EB1, he said no. It will be released soon he said and was on display. There was a tactical and civilian like the EB1 models.

    They operated the same as their EB1 brothers.

    Remind me again, that'll just be a difference of low first vs. high first, or entire twist + momentary vs.click interface? Either way i don't even care that much, thank you for the update!

    I posted above too, but they operated the same way as the EB1 civilian and tactical.

    Two stages lights.

    The heads looked the same to me, but the guy said they were different. Again, the lumen level and run times may have been wrong. The guy was talking to another employee about 500 lumens and a P3 if I remembered correctly. But they could have easily been talking about this light.

    This EB2 looks to be a very interesting light. Cant wait to see beamshots of the Surfire 500 lumen TIR beam. Unless it has a bad green tint, this light will be a must have for me.

    I suspect it will be the same setup as the E2DL Ultra. I'm really looking forward to trying this one out.

    If its the same as the Defender Ultra it's only 500 lumens for a few minutes then runs at about 375 for about 80 minutes before a quick ramp down. That's fine with me but just so you know.

    Wow! And I just placed an order for an E2DL Ultra with my local dealer yesterday... I like this EB2. It just looks sleek.

    Again, sorry for not taking more pictures. I did hold the E2DL Ultra and the EB2 side-by-side and they were the same size except for the strike bezel.

    This is the ticket and without the sharp DNA collectors on the bezel. Thanks for sharing the intel that you gathered!

    What's the most prudent strategy?

    -buy eb2 and e2dl then swap the heads & sell (who would want an eb2 with defender head)?
    -put L1 delrin tailcap ring on eb2, assuming it fits (same dia.)?
    -eb2 + z68 last resort (has solid shroud).

    It's not listed under switches, but is there even a part no. for the scalloped shroud on the e2d's?

    edit- will this eb2 head fit on a classic e2d defender?

    Do want!

    My want list includes the EB2, new E1L, and maybe the new E2L-A. Surefire, however, is bad about getting product out and even though the new outdoorsmans are out there, they are very limited in circulation and I can't find them with the newer 2-way clip.

    I would hardly call that size "backup"...I thought the Eb1 was borderline too big.

    I agree with you 100%. this will be my personal choice over the E2DL Ultra.

    So I'm assuming that the EB2 with tactical switch is going to be the realization of the LX2 Ultra, just under a different name? Very good looking light, although I wish they'd been able to make the head slightly smaller.

    I think the real thing lacking on the EB2 will be a higher low. While I generally prefer lower lows in most lights a 15,25 or 50 lumen low would be much more useful in a light with such a high primary output. Adding more modes might be even better but there is something to be said for the simplicity of a Surefire.

    Off topic slightly, but I agree. I've always wished Surefire's "low" was 50 lumens instead of 5-15. Just seems like my Fury is either way too bright, or way too dim for the task at hand.

    Guess that's why God gave us Vinh and Nailbender!

    Man, that looks sharp. I may have to pick one of these up. I would be first in line if the tailcap functioned like the lx2.

    I agree. 2-mode lights with such a bright high output(and therefore short runtime) could have a low of 50lm or so.
    For the Outdoorsmans with their moderate high modes(and several times better runtime) a 5lm low or maybe even less, is good, however.
