Sounds like the throw is legit on this light. The fact that Fenix advertises this light as being weapon mountable must mean they have high confidence in it's durability, whereas with previous LEP's, durability is a concern. A video of the beam would be useful indeed.
Previously not showing much interest in LEP's, this new light has certainly sparked my interest.
Where I do have confusion is some of the specifications on candela and throw distance measurements that some of these manufacturers are giving. For example, Jetbeam just released a new model, M2S LEP that is claiming over 800,000 candela at 480lumens. Unless there is something I'm not understanding correctly, I have a hard time grasping how Jetbeam has managed to produce an astronomical higher amount of throw from a light of the same size and output as the Fenix at 363,000 candela, which is about where the Acebeam W10 is.
I have no doubts about the reliability, durability, and excellent warranty and customer service of Fenix. Hopefully, some of these will fall into the hands of reviewers soon.
Here's a video comparing all of the beams from most of the currently available LEP lights.
As you can see, the jetbeam m2s does have a noticeably tighter beam, perhaps only 2/3 in diameter as the other similarly sized ones. It appears they maximized throw/form factor ratio, and as many people note, having a beam as tight and focused as that of the w30 is a downside in many scenarios. It seems the m2s is in between the larger models and the smaller models. I have one coming in soon, but it will be my only LEP light so I won't be able to compare it to the other smaller ones.
