I mostly use my Deft-x to smile. I admit it.
My Thrunite TN32 "super thrower" almost never gets used, it's mainly a "take it in the car with me when exploring new territory" light. My baby thrower, EagleTac S200C2, on the otherhand, gets used all the time as my hiking "backup light" to my H600Fw headlamp. I thought I'd rarely use it when I bought it, but it's rapidly become one of my most used lights when I'm hiking into new unfamiliar areas. It kept me from blundering into a snake about a week ago, lit his brown body up from about 80 yards away and gave me time to let him move on.
Your eyes are better than mine, and I'm only 31. I can't see a snake from 80 yards away, unless it's neon green and flashing like a stop light.
