Well hello fellow flashaholics i kept hearing how good the surefire u2 is and how versitile it is, so I purchased this light. WOW! This light is bright. It throws like my L6 and Has a good flood. The Low level is bright for a low level. It compact and throws a bunch. I got the whitest tint! and the very very very slight Cheerio that can only be seen if you look at the beam from a mirror. I think this is the best flashlight ever made! Sorry for not asking you guys to help me but i read enough threads to see this is a good light but afwul cheerios and tints made me back away but hit the lottery again! Also my surefire U2's Lens is slightly popped up like if rounded is this normal? Well it doesnt affect the perfect beam and bright light! Great light!
