New Jetbeam BC25!

Saw this over at CPF, new Jetbeam BC25. From their budget B series. Hopefully the price is nice.

Specs:
- CREE XML T6 LED
- 2*Cr123 or 1*18650
- Approx 460 lumens with SMO reflector
- Simple UI similar to other B series lights, twist head to change brightness
- Candle stand tail cap

I was a big fan of JETBeam, but their newer flashlights are just plain ugly.

This one almost looks like a cheap and generic knock-off type flashlight. Maybe JetBeam noticed the increased interest in budget lights and so now they're making some of their own, which even look like budget lights. It's all good as long there's still JetBeam quality in them.

You are much better off with Balder.

Even the Chinese don't like it.  http://www.shoudian.com/thread-206002-1-1.html

Very plain looking. It looks like any number of ****Fire lights.

They used to have good looking lights, seems like their recent design have gone down a bit.

That clip looks like its going to come off when you place the the torch down... 

I do agree with the aesthetics not being as nice, its got that over-designed look, more so than in the past. My favourite jetbeam is still the E3P and E3S, but apparently the sales data prove that most people wouldn't agree with me. (think of the F23 trustfire, without the attack crown)
