That would be just about the same head diameter and overall length as a Raidfire Spear. Larger than the P-Rocket but a nice pocketable size. What's the beam like? Mostly flood, I'm guessing?

Looks identical to the Ultrafire and Kaidomain C8's I have, although mine have XM-L T6's. The latest - the Ultrafire - has a smooth reflector and that makes for a very distinctly-defined circular beam pattern that I don't like. I've ordered an orange peel reflector for it so it will have a more useful beam like my other C8's. I guess it's personal preference, but I don't know why anyone would want such a sharply-defined and narrow hotspot.

Where did you order the orange peel reflector form?
I'd be interested in trying one in this light.

The beam in mine isn't like you're describing. It's not like the old Inova lights with TIROS optics. The hot spot is pretty bright & difined but the beam has some usable spill also.

Got the OP reflector from Kaidomain. Look for "OP reflector for C8" in their reflectors section. Less than 4 bucks shipped.
