    Your eyes are the problem. It's difficult too see small objects (people for example) in that large of a distance. So from a practical perspective the Maxabeam doesn't go that much farther.

    yes, but at say 1000 meters, it will still put twice the intensity, or more, on a subject, with 4 times the lux

    As PolarLi described above, similarly, in a 900 Yard beam shoot with an 85 Watt, 1 degree beam Gen3 MB and a 175 Watt, 2 degree beam Megaray, the hotspot from the MB was indeed brighter than that of the MR however I could not tell that I was illuminating a large tree until I hit the same target with the dimmer but larger hotspot of the MR. So in this long-distance case, brighter was not better.

    Obviously, some years ago we provided the ballasts to MAC, that he needed to produce this one of a kind piece of art.

    Sorry, bulb. I read through the posts here and saw that there was a scarcity of currently produced factory offerings. The one I mentioned has a lot going for it: The one-off factor, gorgeous machining, and pretty much a full set of spare parts that are from a well known, high quality manufacturer. I must inquire, what on earth is a worm wrestle?

    Polarion and Surefire also still make HIDs.
    There were never really that many to begin with.

    Check out the "Group Buy" thread for the Polarion 50D.....heck of a light. I believe only a few more folks are needed.

    No I have not as it really does not make much difference on ones interest in buying as I bought them in the blind myself with "NO BEAMSHOTS". All you will get from beamshot comparison is someone with a 100.00 Amazon light claiming how much brighter it is..... There is many beam shots available for you here on CF to check out...

    Beam shots and input from members help me and others. That's why I come hear to learn.

    Is there a reason why the Hellfighter 4 is not even in the conversation. Is it too weak? What's the deal? I know it has a battery and is self contained.
