FocusWorks Eryx F1 Flashlight Review

Today I have a special light.  This is another “new to the flashlight market but skilled in other stuff” flashlight.  And it’s unusual.  Titanium and copper mix, and it’s a reflector light.  It’s not a run-of-the-mill triple, as so many customs* are these days.  I’m excited to have this one in my hands, and I hope if nothing else, the glut of photos I’ve included here tell you the story of this light!

Eagtac SX30C2 Flashlight Review

Here’s my second Eagtac light, the SX30C2.  This is a throwier version of the Eactac I just reviewed, the TX30C2.  The specs and such are otherwise pretty much the same!  As a result, much of the review will be carry over, too.

Eagtac TX30C2 Flashlight Review

I have tried for ages to get lights by EagTac for review.  Their lights are consistently solid offerings, and one of the few brands which offer Nichia emitters in their main lineup.  I have a couple of these EagTac lights in for review; here’s the first one!  This is the TX30C2, an 18650 light with medium range, and dual switch interface.

Astrolux S43 Flashlight Review

I’ve reviewed many iterations of this light.  I did the S42 not that long ago.  And one of my very first reviews was of the Manker E14 (which I later sold, and hugely regretted selling).  
This is yet another update on that platform, with 219c emitters, and some other improvements.  Read on for more!

Oveready Lava P60 with XP-L HI 371d and Optic DIP 219c Drop in Flashlight Review

Here’s one of those random reviews of a light (and items) that I purchase myself, and am  completely free to say what I want.  (That’s a joke; I say what I want about all items I review, no matter how I get them.)  This is a light I’ve eyeballed for ages, but never ponied up the money for.  I had a failed purchase through another site, so I decided to use that money for this light.  It’s the Oveready Lava P60 host.  I paired it with two drop ins; a 371d p60 triple drop in, and an Oveready DIP 8-mode 219c drop in.  I’m excited to have this light, and glad to put forth this review!

Manker E03H Headlamp Review

It’s been a long time since I reviewed a Manker light, though I have liked most of the Manker’s I’ve had.  The E14 is still a personal favorite (and in my opinion, a watershed light).  Good friends have described the E03H as a must have, so I … had to have one!  Fortunately Fasttech came through for me.  So here’s the review of the E03H!
