    Default Subwoofer's Flashlight reviews now on Tactical Reviews



    FLASHLIGHT REVIEWS INDEX PAGE

    06 Feb 2018 - With the second round of the Photobucket Bomb due to go off at the end of 2018, many of the reviews in this index will ultimately lose their images. It is impractical to re-host and update all of these reviews, especially as some will be of little interest and out of date, I will be open to requests for more popular or relevant reviews to be 'fixed'. Please post in the affected review thread to request this. Depending on my current workload, I'll try to accommodate as many of these requests as possible.

    09 May 2016 - With the launch of Tactical Reviews, this Post will remain frozen as an archive. A master index will be maintained on the:

    Light Reviews Page of Tactical Reviews


    - Remember that the latest update may be on my Gear Reviews Page or Knife Reviews Page.

    For reviews of Knives, Chargers, Batteries, EDC Gear and more, check the:
    Tactical Reviews Index Page.

    Performance Reviews


    Why a 'Performance Review'?:
    I'm not always able to conduct a full review, but have run the technical tests on a particular light. A 'Performance Review' is intended to provide an outlet for this information and a placeholder for further updates and discussion. No Pros and Cons are included as these performance reviews contain only experimentally measured output figures.

    Due to the momentous events in my life over the last few months, I cleared my test bench and kept it clear. I'm only now opening the doors again and do have a few irons in the fire. Once I have confirmation of any of the potential review candidates I'll post an update with 'Pending Reviews' in this post.

    I've enjoyed your reviews alot.

    Any chance you'll be reviewing the MH40? Its the big dog in Nitecore's MH line, yet it seems overlooked amongst the EA4, EA8 and P25 fanfare. And those 3 lights are interesting within their own specs.

    Nitecore has debuted many new lights in a short timeframe and perhaps they're is not interested in supplying MH40s for reviews, as it may over-shadow(sic) the P25.

    Hi Subwoofer

    First off, I've read several of your flashlight reviews now and have found them very clear useful! Thank you very much!

    But the main reason I post is to mention to you that your Fenix HP11 review is not on your flashlights review list. (it is on your other reviews list, though...) Just thought you should know. You mentioned the HP11 in your HP25 review but I couldn't find it here. Luckily there's also a search function

    elloco999, the reason is that when I started compiling my list of reviews, the flashlight reviews forum was for hand held flashlights only. Anything else, including headlamps needed to be put into a different forum.

    This thread is a list of reviews in this forum (which now includes headlamps) with the newer reviews at the top. There is a link to the list of my 'other' reviews which mentions that it includes headlamps at the top - the HP11 is in that other list.

    , is my face red... It does indeed say so at the top of the topic. Hadn't even read that.

    By the time I came to this thread, I'd been researching headlamps for a couple of hours already. Guess I wasn't really paying attention anymore. Forget I said something.

    These are excellent reviews and I do look for when subwoofer outs up a new one.

    A further update regarding the Photobucket bomb. All reviews hosted on Tactical Reviews are now independent of photobucket, so will not lose their images (I use to host the images only on photobucket as a subscriber). Older CPF only reviews will lose the images when the bomb goes off at the end of the year.

    More recent reviews posted on CPF have the images hosted on Tactical Reviews, so will be immune to the bomb.

    If there are any particular reviews CPF members would like reposted on Tactical Reviews to maintain their images, please let me know?
