For those viewers here who may not have thoroughly researched these flashlights, it bears repeating that the way light is adjusted for brightness is by using a QTC (quantum tunneling composite) pill.
This makes for a different experience when adjusting brightness. Read the Fraz Labs website for more information. I believe the system behaves a little differently when brand new, until broken-in.
The machining and design are a genuine reflection of CPF members speckacuda and The Fraz.
Never thought I would go bat-scat crazy over this flashlight. I am smitten, and subsequently biased. It is not the brightest, or throws the farthest; it is one tough, one of a kind, illumination tool.
