Sky Ray STL-V2 clone -- Uniquefire V2

http://www.manafont.com/product_info.php/uniquefire-v2-cree-xml-t6-led-3...

Looks to be a 1:1 copy of the popular and well-received Sky Ray STL-V2 for $10 less. Except it only has 3 modes instead of the Sky Ray's 2 sets of modes. But I wonder if it will be as well driven as the original.

Ah, yes, that too. Same price as the Fandyfire STL-V6. However, the advantage is that this one is available at Manafont. And if I had to choose between a Uniquefire and a FandyFire just based on the name, I'd have to go with Uniquefire. Wink

And what about the regulation on this thing? That's a major selling point for the original.

Yup, when I first glanced at the ad I choked, "Crap! They've lowered the price on my beloved STL-V2!!"

Then I realised it was a carbon-copy Unique-whateverFoot in Mouth.

Except for the fact that the anodizing on my V2 isn't the best in the world, it's one of my favourites. It's right up there with the brand-names with regards to throw. Remains to be seen whether the Uniquefire is just as good. Reviews please!

Lights out! That's when things get interesting...

Has anyone here pushed the "buy" button on the Uniquefire V2?  Was considering it but wanted some input from someone who has one.
