    I like it. Nice rig. That bezel looks aggressive as all get out! Love it.

    Yea just looking at the pics and the bezel actually looks like the teeth are smooth. Meaning they wouldn't catch or cut you by accident. I really like it. I would fill the slots in the bezel with either a Glow powder epoxy or, try to fit a Trit in there.

    I like the options, how about a beam shot?? Just curious to see how the teeth show up! lol

    I don't think the teeth will cut you by accident. However, they could be useful for self-defense.
    Not sure if the slots in the bezel were ment to be filled with glow epoxy or trits but I prefer to leave them empty.

    I'm sorry, no beamshots. I don't have a good place to take them and to be honest I hate making beamshots
    The hotspot is like normal but the spill looks funny. In other words it is the perfect bezel for the Halloween season.

    Photobucket sucks! Pictures are hosted by Imgur now.
    Until today this is one of my most used EDC lights (but with a plain SS bezel).
