I would like to know which one of these two flashlights would be a better thrower and which one has the better runtime/regulation on high.

Please keep your replies on these two flashlights only. I know there is the Tiablo A10 and other (probably) better throwers but I am only interested in these two.

Wasn't Britney's sister called Jamie? :p

I remember reading that the Spear was very much appreciated by people looking for throwers, but isn't it out of production?

Spear throws better and has better regulation with 18650. A9 runs longer but no regulation and accepts R/CR123 cells.

Sorry, Didn't understand what you meant.

I guess so, But some merchants (Nitecore USA.com) still sell it.

Thank you for your information.

Have you checked out the Dereelight DBS V3?

What type of batteries did you want to use with the light?

OP specifically told you not to mention other options. . . :p

Personally, I can't wait until I can sneak a DBS V3 past the wife. . . . . . :devil:

I have an A9 and considered the Spear. I bought the Dereelight. I know you said you were only interested in the first two but do yourself a favor and check out the DBS. It is the best thrower in its class IMHO. There are several excellent reviews on all the lights if you do a search. good luck.

The RaidFire is called "Spear", not "Spears"... which is the surname of a certain singer. It was just a bad joke. :p
I understood now. Sorry about the title mistake but I cannot fix it now.

I will check DBS. Thank you.
