Just a few minutes in, but just want to say that it’s always nice to able to hear a voice in a review video (I know this isn’t always possible, as English isn’t native to many of us – not anybody’s fault!). I often will leave these playing in another tab while I work Silly

You mean it would be better if I talked longer and during night shots? I thought about it, but this time decided to go with music. But if people prefer listening to comments about flashlight, I will change my reviewing a bit Smile Would like to hear more opinions about this.

Oh sorry, it was just a general statement that it’s always great to have a review with a voice-over vs. some reviews where all details are shown as text (basically a slideshow w/ some background music). Don’t get me wrong, those are great too, but I can appreciate being able to multi-task while fueling the flashlight hobby. Nothing wrong w/ music with the beamshots, since I’ll definitely be watching the video for those. Big Smile

Thanks for your nice and informative review, Richard.

Will be nicer if you discussed/compared the different LED available for this Convoy S11: SST40, GTFC40, KWCULPM1, and XHP70.2. I am interested in the last one, wondering whether it will shine any much brighter than the XHP50. Smile

I have Convoy M3, which is quite similar to Convoy S11. Will be interesting if you discuss their differences in performance.

Hello, I am happy you liked my review. This is my first review, so noone wants to send me free flashlights. For now I am making reviews of flashlights I own at the moment, if I will get my hands on other LED options with this flashlight, of course I will make a follow up review with comparison. I understand, that people rely on those reviews, but manufacturers do not trust new reviewers I guess. Although brands like sofirn and convoy would be never considered as good brands without those reviews on internet. When I was looking for my flashlights and heard of Convoy, I first thought it is some kind of russian no name brand Big Smile and only after watching few reviewers talking about them realised that those two brands are go to budget brands with good quality. Hope those manufacturers thinks the same.

Hi, sorry for now I do not make russian reviews. Maybe I will do them in the future.
