    Having both MX25L2 Turbo SB-T70 and SR95S UT, I can say that it's a slight advantage for Eagletac in words of throwing. I noticed that MX25L2 turbo head has a little bit deeper and smother reflector than SR95S UT. The beam pattern of MX25L2 is very different than R95S UT (in my samples). While, at a closer distance the spot of MX252 is a little bit larger and less bright than SR95S UT ones, at a high distance the situation is changing. MX25L2's spot is very well focused and seems to be brighter and narrower than SR95S UT. In other words, at high distances (hundred meters) I found that transition from spot to spill is more uniform at SR5S UT than MX25L2 which has a better focused spot. Clearly MX25L2 Turbo is focusing better at higher dstances than SR95S UT due to a deeper and smoother reflector. Obviously both are outstanding throwers and I am happy using them.

    Good to know, thanks for sharing.

    Hi Selfbuilt,

    The ultimate throwking of the led flashlights, is the nitecore TM36, i have...its fantastic....over 1100 meters of throw.

    Alot are waiting, until you do a review of the TM36.

    Hope you do that soon.

    Hi Selfbuilt,

    1 You have tested this light, at 280 kcd....280000 cd,

    Does this light with this intensity, blind a person, within short-moderate distance=

    2 Can it light up a bit, things at 800 meters distance.

    3 Does a treeline at 300, and at 1000 meters, very well lit up, with this 280 kcd...280000 cd light.

    4 Is this 280000 cd light, at night, and at afternoon, at a clear night, and at a totally overcast afternoon autumm-winter day, clearly visible, when somebody pointed at me, at a short-moderate, or even at a long distance,

    Hope this light is still available.

    Yes, I was away for the past week.

    In response to your questions, there is not much I can say. Beam intensity measures are simply are an arbitrary standard for reporting and comparing lights. How well it actually lights things up in various environmental conditions at various distances (or how subjectively "blinding" it is) is not something anyone can answer. It's a question of opinion, and I can't say I have one. The numbers simply give you a way to compare to other lights you have experience of.

    November 2017 and this Luminus SBT-70 thrower is still very useful and very powerful. I was picking my Mom up at the mall curbside because she canít walk far. It was like Times Square very busy with tons of cars waiting to drop off and pick up (Valet area). I pulled the Eagtac MX25L4T (4x18650 version) from my glove compartment and even under all that stress, car headlights up the wazoo, and I was able to easily feel the rubber switch and used momentary for a turbo blast to signal my Mom. She is someone who canít tell if a Boeing 747 is shining its landing lights at her. But this worked flawlessly and she saw my car and came over (three lanes of heavy mall car traffic over). Great flashlight easy to use powerful enough even in the November of 2017!
