Klarus have produced a new torch that just pissed on the falcon and xt12 gt2000 and the xt11s.but it does seem to have a small problem. The magnet charging point unlike the others sometimes drops off which can get annoying but the throw makes up for this. Still has a great finish and looks good. The torch has a tight beam with not much of a spill outside. At least a throw of 600m tops possible to get more in real dark conditions once again adam top services and products.

I had an oportunity to take my new XT12GT hunting last night. I had a successful shot at 200 meters using Nikon optics at 9 power. The tree line behind the target was 240 meters away. The useful range of this torch for hunting is about 250 meters. Maybe a couple more meters on a dryer night as the air was pretty humid last night. Not bad for the size of this torch and I am happy with the purchase.
