Okay, I watched the video on this one.
Awesome beam, and easily clears 100k. However, the form-factor is all wrong for pocketing. The mounting for rails makes it too square, plus the switch is also all wrong for being in the pocket--every time you move it would turn on.
So this is an excellent rifle light, but not the pocketable thrower I am looking for.
Now, if someone can mate that reflector and emitter with a compact 18650 body....
I thing think this a perfect choise for a pistol.Streamlight makes them cheaper than Surefire. The quality level is the same. With my department these are the only two lights that made the grade for pistol mounting. My agency leaves it to the officers discretion if they want one and which. Never heard of either failing in my agency or with those around us. My choice is the Streamlight TRL-1 HP. With a well defined hot spot you get a good idea of where the bullet impacts.

Vinhs version has double the throw so you would see where the bullet hits that much more. Also reliability will be improved with Vinhs version as he usually touches up poor solder connections and what not. You get the cheaper price with streamlight with the reliability of vinhs mods which imo make it Superior to over priced surefire not to mention 3 times the performance over surefire
is this your first Streamlight release? whats the throw. thats a nice reflector. i could put that on my AEG airsoft m4
