    Well, If you are looking for a contender for king of throw, the BLF GT platform is hard to beat. It’s big though....

    If you really want throw with limited spill, I would also suggest the BLF GTvn, not 20,000 lumens, but either 1.5M or 2M cd, and certainly large. https://www.candlepowerforums.com/vb...rthest-Thrower

    Since I don't use it along with a spotting scope, I prefer my stock BLF GT because of color temp and the ridiculously low group buy price. A 5-lb, 13" light with "only" 1M cd is enough to impress the girls I know...
