Id like to know a little about the PR head. I own a micra and it sounds like a good option, shoud I get a PR head or boosterhead? Got any beamshots?

Beam shots would be essentially identical to any beamshots of PR, PR-T, Aleph 1 or Pelican PM6 LED beam shots as effectively the same reflector is used by all. The stock micra LED module requires a modified PR or 27 MM reflector as the reflector can not seat down on the LED as far as in the cases of the other PR or 27 MM hosts.

Re: Info on longbow PR head

I dont know where you got the part about PR head being better. The booster head uses a 30mm optic if I am not mistaken. The PR head uses an MCR27(27mm)reflector. So do you want a lot of throw or spill with still an incredible amount of light? I remember someone saying he gets somewhere around 1100 lux with the PR, while he gets over 2000 with the booster head which is not surprising because it uses a very large optic.
