Pros:

  • One of my most used light.
  • Perfect for cycling.
  • Feels good in hand.
  • Very good beam profile with a nice hotspot and spill.
  • Reflector sits on led perfectly, not like Convoy S7 & S5. (Reflectors of S7 and S5 do not sit on led, there is some space 1 mm or so . I will update their reviews soon with this issue.)

Cons:

  • I consider PWM a drawback for flashlights. Not visible by eye though but it still exists on 105c AMC drivers.
