The word Floody in Zebraspeak, actually just means frosted glass over a reflector. And as you will see in the following photos, the Floody beam is narrower than the spill of the Reflector w Clear lens..Oh, I don't want that. I intentionally don't want the floody version since the wide part of the beam blinds people I'm running with.
Zebralight has three beam types:
Note the flood beam has a very wide angle, but the Floody beam does not:
Standard Beam Reflector with clear glass, notice the width of the spill. The center of the beam reaches farther than the other options, but when running the hotspot will move around a lot, and that may become tiresome. Not ideal for running imo:
Floody beam (reflector with frosted glass): notice the beam width is narrower than the spill above. The Floody beam also does not throw as far, but is the most suitable for running, imo.
Flood beam, this is very wide angle, very little throw, not suitable for running.
so, imo, the floody beam is the best choice for running with other people..
DCFix is a way to simulate the Floody beam, using plastic film that is removable, instead of comitting to the Frosted glass on the Floody beam model.
bear in mind that both the Floody beam from frosted glass, and the Floody beam from DCFix will reduce the useful distance of the light beam... If you choose to use DCFix, and then decide you want to see farther, with a smaller hotspot, you can peel the DCFix off the clear glass.
