It's showdown time. This will be the 2nd Crelant 7G5 that I have compared to the Olight M3X. No excuses this time. Either it beats the M3X in throw this time or it simply put doesn't. So let's not say you need to try another one. Pictures coming. It's put up or shut up time.
They seem identical in throw, but the beam pattern is quite different. The deeper reflector of the 7G5 actually has more spill than the M3X and that can make the 7G5 appear as brighter over all. But how I see these, apparently to me, the 7G5 it's the same with the M3X in throw. Or just a slight bit under the M3X, for example the roof of the white building is not that clear in the 7G5 photo as in the M3X photo.
