Re: SUREFIRE LIGHTS - does anybody use them?

Ian--
I have the Z2 Combatlight and I carry it at work and off-duty, to include hunting. It is simply the best light out there for the size and weight. You can't go wrong with the Surefire...

Most have either 60 or 65 lumens, 60 to 70 minutes continuous run time, all have flawless white beams and are all but unbreakable. The G2BK is $34, and is about perfect for hunting with the blue filter(makes blood turn yellow), and red filter(deer cant see it).


Simply put- They are the best flashlights in the world. [img]images/icons/wink.gif[/img]

I am planning on getting the new G2 model. It should be bright enough.

The blue really turns blood yellow? without luminol

..The blue really turns blood yellow?..

Afraid that is just not right - been trying them. Sounds so good but no luck.

Ian its not working for you? We have used them several times. Works like it's supossed to. For me it turns the ground a brown color and blood has a slight tint of yellow. It does not make it glow just gives it a slightly different color. [img]images/icons/smile.gif[/img]

Re: SUREFIRE LIGHTS - does anybody use them?

I have used the "Combatlight Z3" for almost a year now.... Helluva bright light, and very comfortable with the rubber washers to aid in grip... Only downside is that the batteries it uses arent cheap....

Started using it while bouncing in a New Orleans Strip Club while paying for college tuition last October, now using it on the streets of New Orleans in full time EMS/Rescue work.....

HTH,

Squatch........
