Thread: Looking for a mid level flashlight to recommend to my uncle.

  1. #1

    Buttrock Looking for a mid level flashlight to recommend to my uncle.

    He's got 300 yards of throw he needs at least, and that probably his biggest thing he wants (but still have regular capability) He likes mid level tools, so like $50+ to the point of diminishing returns. I think 26650's? I really like them unless there is something better but they are really common from vaping, but maybe I'm partial. Throw me some ideas.

    Klarus's XT21X is their latest photon cannon. Specs say 316 meters with 4k lumens. average price around $120 though so maybe a bit outta budget? Their XT11X is the previous generation I think but still 3200 lumens and while it's only 283 meters...I would think it's close. It sells for around $80-$90

    I recommend the Klarus lights only because I love the XT series UI. Dual tail switches allows you to have instant turbo and instant low output. Their G20L uses a 26650 and throws out 3k lumens to 300 meters as well and is a more traditional style flashlight that doesn't have the dual tail switch setup.

    I would second Lumintop GT Mini. Ridiculous throw for the size and price point. Good luck.
