The output looks extreme! Is it as ‘blue’ as in the picture, or is that just the way it turned out?

It does look quite a cool/cold tint compared to the other torches. Other than tint the beam looks similar to the C83. Is there a difference in lux between the two?

To me the look from memory appears similar to the XML2 0A that IOS used to sell. The wife who was looking on said there was a slight blue tint. Definitely no green here. Smile They are advertised as being 6500K
I think these are the same ones that djozz did his testing on. These came from KD quite awhile ago.

The C83 XML2 tint is 2C while the MTG2 in the Monster torch and the XHP70 in the Tribute torch are both 5000K 3C tint. In reality they look quite different. The 3C XHP70 would have to be the nicest tint I’ve seen in a led.
