Thorfire VG10S & VG15S

Ok so shortly after joining this forum Miranda contacted me about reviewing the VG10S and VG15S. Which I’m glad she did but unfortunately Amazon rejected my reviews, wtf Amazon. I guess I can see their point on bias for free products. Anyway, I owe her a couple of reviews. What good reviews by a novice will do on this forum is minimal at best. But here we go.

Likes Both:
- Price point, don’t feel the need to be gentle because they are so expensive
- Build quality
- No noticeable vampiric battery drain
- Water resistant to the point of submersion
- Dropped on concrete without effect

Dislikes Both:
- The switch takes some getting used to, but is easily mastered.

VG10S… This is the larger of the the two. I’ll probably move the clip to a different flashlight, I don’t really see the need for it on this size flashlight. It’s too big to be an everyday carry, more of a backpack or glovebox light. I would like to take the strap off this one and put it on the VG15S, but my wife likes it were it is at the moment.

VG15S… I really like this for an edc light, but the strap makes it a little bulky imho.

What I have been doing with them for the past couple of weeks. I have older terra cot pipes for surface water runoff going across my back yard. It goes through at least three of my uphill neighbors yards too. My part was broken and mostly filled with dirt. I’ve been using these lights while I’ve been blasting the dirt out with my pressure washer, using jetter nozzles. They have stood up to the abuse without issue.

Thanks for the lights Miranda, I have enjoyed using/abusing them

Edit to add,I like that both flat and button tops work both flashlights

I am trying to get into the flashlight review scene. I have been infatuated with LED lights and own close to 100, and I want to start doing video reviews. How do I get started to get my name out there as a reviewer and be able to get lights to review?

I didn’t do anything. They contacted me. If I were you, I would start doing reviews of the lights you own. I may be wrong but it seems like the guys who do the most in depth/technical reviews get the most to review. Good luck

Easy enough. You have 100 flashlights. Well now you can make 100 YouTube videos that will get you started and busy for awhile to do indepth review of each light. Somewhere along the line you’ll get noticed and will be contacted. You won’t have much luck without a good history. You may get one here and there. But only known reviewers get the expensive lights for free

Blf has changed a lot since I've been here. Lots of snow flakes and easily offended over nothing. When the forum use to be great and people joked around and could take a joke. It's a forum it's not that serious. Let's make BLF great again!
