So I got my hands on one to play with and surprisingly like it more than I thought I would. With the head fully tightened it's high / strobe. With the head 1/8 turn it's moon / low / medium / high. However, if you set the light to 1/8 turn, run it to high, then tighten the head down, it should be the same output but it gets noticeably brighter so its almost like a "turbo" in a way. The moonlight is also surprisingly nice in low light conditions, though I don't have many of those. It's a nice light, and has useful features, carousing me to like it more than I thought I would. I'm still iffy on the clip both in form/function with respect to durability being that it's screwed into the body of the life itself, but that's relatively minor. Mainly I'm just trying to see if the 30% increase over the Microstream is justifiable. I appreciate your insight and replies.
