    Are these things still the best bang for buck out of longer range stuff?

    Look forward to reading about how these go, they are a heap lighter

    Do you need to send the whole torch away for de-doming or just the head

    I think I just have a torch fetish Rushy.

    Had the same knives for years. It would be hard to improve them. They are always improving these torches in some way.

    New Maxtoch Torch

    Never used the big lenser. But it would be fair to say they make a lightforce SL170 redundant
    You can pick up eyes at least to 500

    Just the head is required. Unscrew the battery tube but leave the reflector/lens/crown ad the LED is quite fragile without the protection of the dome.

    I haven't seen or used a big led lenser, but last trip out I was lighting up trees at 800m. If there were animals about you would see eye shine at that distance. Safe shooting I'd go 300-400m with a suitable backdrop.

    Maxtoch I believe are doing a deal on a charger and Sanyo 3400mAH batteries.

    Cool, but I normally don't buy anything with 'Sniper' written on it as it will normally disappoint. I may make an exception in this case.

    Haha, almost all recent buyers are NZer's!

    @BRADS, as far as range and lighting go these eat the big Lenser, and are lighter. Their durability is what lets them down against a lenser.

    To give you a bit of an idea, my SN6X-2 dedomed by Gadgetman will easily pick up a deer outline 3-400m away.

    In fact, on Thursday I lit up some deer with it on a face that when using my 140 lightforce I can just make out eyes. That is approx. 375yds on Google earth. Also, I was shooting hares that night with my 223 at 240yds (ranged), they were fully lit up like little beakons.

    This torch supersedes my SN. Buy one, I was slow on the uptake, but am almost converted (still use my lightforce for spotting off quad or truck).
    R93 and BRADS like this.
    I'm drawn to the mountains and the bush, it's where life is clear, where the world makes the most sense.
