    Default Foursevens Preon P1 P2 Pass-Around n GAW

    Sorry everyone for the delay, Iíve passed on the lights but not given any feedback! I will begin by saying that I have many older P1s, and I have an aluminum Preon P2 from a few years back.

    These lights have all the same functionality and ability to be customized, which is great. But the thing that impressed me the most is the tail switch. In the old versions, they worked well enough, but compared to this new switch, they seem clunky, as the new switch is extremely smooth and comfortable to operate.

    The copper of the P2 was also a welcome surprise. It is quite hefty for a 2AAA light, but it is a nice heft, not clumsy in any way to me. I suppose compared to the aluminum P1 it may have exaggerated the weight also, since itís a larger version in a heavier material. The only complaint I had was a tiny battery rattle in the P2 when shaken side to side.

    All said and done, I was sad to see these go, and plan to keep adding Preons to my collection for years to come.
    I'd love to shed some light on that for you

    My impressions after 1 week of use.

    The LED choice is excellent. The tint and CRI are great.
    The beam quality is excellent. It is a nice floody type of hot spot. Very useful.
    The button is rather stiff. Good for not coming on in your pocket. Not quite so good for the smaller P1, as the small size gives less area to grip while turning it on.

    The clips: I am not a big fan of clips. If I clip something to my pocket, it eventually gets snagged and pulled out. Sometimes I notice, sometimes I don't. The only clip that I like, and use, is a bezel up clip, and only to attach to the brim of a hat for hands free use. If the P1 had a 2 way clip or a bezel up clip, I would buy one.

    I was expecting to prefer the P1 over the P2, but I find that I am using the copper P2 most of the time and only occasionally reaching for the P1.

    The Preon P1 and copper Preon P2 are now on their way to Nitroz.

    Thanks for the opportunity to check them out. Both lights have a nice fit and finish, good switch action, and great looking beams. The tint of the LED is perfect for a smaller light that you would tend to use up close, though the beams throw decent for such a small reflector. The P1 had respectable output for a smaller light, but the copper P2 was the light that I wanted to use more often. It wasn't exactly pocket friendly (for jeans carry), but felt really good in hand and had a bit more punch. The light levels on both are nicely spaced, but the P1 levels are spot on for a pocket light.

    Here are the pass-around lights with my well loved Preon ReVO. That little twisty lives my key chain and sees a lot of use and abuse.

    I am currently accepting limited mod requests. Please send me a PM!
