Good point Firelight2. :+1:
This light is also speced to use a Carclo Narrow Spot Frosted TIR (10511) Optic, .
So, as has been mentioned before: While the polls #1 choice, the XP-L HI; may well “throw” a bit further…. it is far from a ‘thrower’ as used in this light.
Due to the 2 types of leds in discussion, I also thought the “extreme” values (3000K and 6500K) would be the less favourite, and this table confirms it! Too warm or too cold in a flashlight like this would be not a wise move. Hence the general preferences for the 4000K-5500K!
However, seeing djozz’s test, that LED is a nice thing to use in other lights! :+1:
