PROS
Tritium tubes are awesome.
CONS
Orange is SIGNIFICANTLY less bright than green.
I purchased these for a watch face. They glow bright enough to be seen when your eyes are dark adjusted, but they are much much less bright than green. I needed a contrasting color because it is hard to tell the difference between 5 and 6 or 6 and 7 if 11 or 12 of the hour markers are the same color. So I am glad I used them for 3,6,9 & 12, but I was surprised at how not bright they are.

We turned off the lights in the kitchen and shined this on the cabinets and counters... it showed us a clear history of every baking project that had ever taken place in the kitchen! Flour and smears and smudges were clearly visible everywhere. It is amazing to consider all the things that are masked by all the rest of the visible light spectrum. Only when you remove that spectrum can you really see! The flashlight itself is typical Convoy, meaning it's fantastic. It's good for close in work (<20m) but you're not going to light up a dance floor with it.

PROS
- smooth, won't catch in pocket - strong springs keep battery from losing contact when shaken - metal clicky is slick - lanyard is versatile (and easy to remove) - finish quality is top-notch - bezel is slightly concave, giving it an edge - 800LM is blinding, even in sunlight!
CONS
- I might like the rubber switch better
I bought this as a defensive flashlight and I am really thrilled with it (even if I have not had the opportunity to save my own life with it). 1) With the clip-on pocket clip it fits easily in a pocket, meaning it's more likely to be with me when I need it. 2) The smooth bezel doesn't scream "tacti-cool" so it's less likely to go into the TSA collection, and more likely to be with me when I need it. 3) low and med levels are plenty to search for things in the dark 4) hi (800LM in my case) is stellar. It's painful to look at even on a bright sunny day. It easily reaches out 100m+ in the dark. 5) The bezel has a bit of an edge to it. Combine that with the fact that if you struck someone you would probably to it at the angle, meaning not all the bezel would contact at once. So you're probably achieving the same pounds-per-square-inch as with the tacti-cool bezels. 6) It's just long enough to protrude out the bottom of my clinched fist. Functional "striking tool" length without being too big to carry or offering too much of a lever to get torqued out of my grip. In short, I would not hesitate to use this against an attacker, even in broad daylight. Make him look away just a bit so he can't clearly see my other hand coming at him.

PROS
- Easy drop-in - pretty good flood - really lights up area, out to ~40m
CONS
- not effective much beyond 40m
I bought this for varmint hunting with a PCP air rifle. 501B with 1000LM white light has been very effective to 100m or more, but I want to try something that won't spook the animals. This red light is great. It doesn't reach out as far as my 1000LM white, but does a good job up to 40m. Can't wait to try it in action...

PROS
PROS - holds Convoy S2 tightly - lets light ride deep in pocket - easy to apply/remove - doesn't grab pants too tightly (maybe a con)
CONS
CONS - none
At first I was upset that the screw-on clip was fazed out in favor of this clip-on clip. But now that I have used it, I am a believer.
