I just received my McCulloch X990 from Greg at BrightGuy, and charged up the batteries while waiting for the night.
I live out in the country. When I turned that X990 on, one would have thought a B52 Bomber with its runway lights on was coming in for a landing. Absolutely amazing.
The X990 is worth every penny, and I can highly recommend it to all CPF`ers. It is another "must have" flashlight...if you can call the X990 a flashlight (it`s so bright).
I treasure my Surefire M6`s, and the M6 is the flashlight I`ll still pick up (along with my Glock 21) when things go bump in the night. IMHO, the M6 is still, pound for pound, one of the best flashlights ever made.
BUT...when you want to really turn the entire nighttime countryside into massive broad daylight, the X990 rules!
I almost bought the X990, but decided between the 6# & the almost too bright light, to go with the Light Cannon. Besides, I'll be useing it in the kayak or bass buggy for night fishing, & I'ld feel more comfortable dropping the LC in the water than the X990. I'm sure I'll still want the X990, but I'll get a lot more use out of the LC. TX
Yes, and there's not much to see.. imagine a square candy bar with wires going in one side, and wires coming out the other. BTW, its a real pain in the butt getting the o-ring seal back in place, so I don't recommend taking the X990 apart, unless you have an extra hour or so to kill

heheheh... join the club!
I too would love to see one of these lights, but it looks like I'll have to settle for other people's pictures. [img]images/icons/blush.gif[/img]
I do have a Light Cannon though, so I'm not exactly what you'd call "HID-less In Seattle". [img]images/icons/grin.gif[/img]
the 2 degree reflector for the x990 is to the best of my knowledge my own made- up fantasy .. I chose that number because that is the narrowest beam angle of the Maxa-Beam.
Magaray? wow. I already emailed asking the price..mm..> or< $ than MB I wonder..?
