KD C8 vs RQ 07? Which one to get?

Just saw that kaidomain has had some price drops on a couple of lights.  The KD C8 is 16.99 and the RQ 07 is 17.92.

I know the KD C8 gets rave reviews here but I've never even heard of the RQ 07.   It's also an XML, single 18650, rated at 1000 lumens, 5 mode. 

Anyone have any info on it?   I can't get both but would like to get one of these.  Any advice or suggestions on which one to get?

Here's the link for the RQ 07.  http://www.kaidomain.com/product/details.S009851

Here are a couple of pics of it

Skyray S-R5 looks very similar.

I have the flashlight (similar to the RQ 07)and like the Design (copy of the LumensFactory Seraph SP-6).

The RQ 07 has many names and I know the body in 3 diffrenet colours. Black (with Smallsun brand), bright grey as Skyray S-R5 and dark grey  as Skyray XM-L.

If you want a flashlight with more throw, take teh C8 (has a bigger and longer reflector, which is better for a thrower). If you want a nice design, take the RQ7.

Light up the darkness.

The RQ is a well driven light but the P60 format is the limiting factor.

The C8 is also well driven but it comes in a larger package.

If performance is your goal gor for the C8 if a good convenient light is what you need go for the RQ.

Ok.  I already have a UF-2100 for convenience.  I think I'll go with the C8.
