    Its a wrist lanyard. I have them on both my torches. The young fella loves to ride on the back of the truck so I make him attach it to his wrist just to be sure it doesnt hit the deck

    I'd like to get my hands on one of the M1 Archer lights, as well as some 18650 batteries. Please put me on your list and let me know when they arrive.

    Muddy, keen on a M1 Archer as well.
    Is there a youtube clip where I can take a look at one ?
    Cheers


    Edit
    Found a youtube review.
    All good

    You depart with mighty boasts, but you come back having done little.
    Sounds like a typical hunting trip !

    Hi Craig - the H01R headlamp is a little camper/walker lamp with 80-100m range tops. Detachable from head strap - I used mine most as a wee stand up light.
    Good quality, several white beam modes, plus 2-3 red modes for night vision. 18650 battery in light.

    XPro can come alone, or with batts/charger/mounts etc - whatever setup you need. Does not come with red/green filters. We did test red and green leds in the 2X but shelved them as they showed less field advantage than the ordinary white beam led which has 4x as much power.

    Here are some reviews with night shots for the new M1 Archer and the 2X. Done by Texas Dave who has done good test work with Brian and I developing M24 and 2X. M1 Archer very strong in bunny range. Photo light testing starts about 8.50 into this review:

    And here are some pics from the 2X. Hard to get exact photographic idea - depends on mist/fog/dust in atmosphere etc. Has alot more flood than these pics capture - not a laser pencil beam only. Good for scanning whole paddocks in few seconds.

    No beam shots for XPro yet - too new..

    Someone here moded a couple of these to run off the bike, works a real treat.
    One mounted on the helmet and another on the rifle and forget about charging batteries.

    2x - Bright.....

    Haven't tried it on the boat yet, however, giving it a go in the morning over water in the dark, very impressed.
    @mudgripz fantastic com's and real fast delivery.

    Now to get the boat back from the shop (service and getting some toys fitted), and try the 2x out on a early morning mission......

    Huge amount of spill on that uber mega chip, looks more like a flood pattern but I guess you could change that with a different reflector

    It did have a ton of spill.
    He talked about the black spot and spill and how some mucking around would maybe fix it.

    Very good

    We've played with some real doozies - like the Maxtoch XSword with 2300m range. Hunter light - no. Yes small size, and extreme pencil beam so you could spot a gnat's testicles at 500 meters. Thing is .. we don't shoot alot of gnats. No hunt value at all - zero spill. Excellent for that small hobby group who enjoy lasering aeroplanes at night...

    Problem with this dude's light is size and weight. From a hunting perspective the best thing to do with it is weld two together, tailcap to tailcap, and use it in your weights programme. But .. for a fun light its pretty wicked..

    We keep playing with new variations, new LEDs etc, but probs with the big, high output LEDs include heat, extreme battery drain, and weight. Suppose you could put a flat area on top of one of those huge reflectors - fry bacon as you spotlight. Or rabbit backsteaks. Could be a winner - talk to Brian about that..
