    As I am having a wet Sunday I just did a quick bit of research.
    Main differences between the Armytek Wizard and Zebra Light H600 seem to be,
    Beam width
    120/70 degrees Armytek vs 80/12 degrees Zebra Light giving the ZL a more intense beam.
    Luminosity
    1000 lm vs 1300
    and run times,
    1 hour 30 vs 2 hours 20.
    The Armytek is cheaper though. Seems you can get it for half the price of the Zebra Light.
    Experience. What you get just after you needed it.

    Not as bright, doesn't last as long and heavier than the Zebra light.
    Only advantage of the Maxtoc is the red light if that is significant to you (which it might be).
    Experience. What you get just after you needed it.

    Not much. But my Spark has one. So its better

    Used it to fix the light in a handy spot a couple times. My spark is very similar in design to the light Ryan posted.

    Yeah. That's how you have to judge things sometimes. I think the major manufacturers have to keep it pretty real these days.
    I've seen the Maxtoch working, and they are great lights, but there seem to be a lot of great lights out there now. I couldn't find any specs on the beam angles for the Maxtoch and that seems to makes a big difference to how they "throw" their light. To be honest I would be happy with any of the three just mentioned. Actually it would be nice to have one of each.

    Do they still make steel seat posts?
