I just wanted to express my admiration for this little light. I bought one when they first came out- I loved it then, but the switch was so tight it was nearly impossible to fully engage it. I had to make the tough decision to send it back. Since then I have also heard people say the switch took significant pressure to click in, so I have kept waiting in the hopes of improvements being made in latter models. Well the one I got the other day from Lighthound is great, I'm pleased to say. Although the switch does take a little more pressure to click than some other lights, it is completely operable. I do believe that the first one I got was simply a bad one (happens to nearly all lights from time to time). This is an amazing little light! Intense, cool white hotspot with no artifacts, great throw, perfect form factor. The anodizing is awesome too- it's got a nice, grippy texture to it. Even though I've got brighter lights with neat features, I am going to spend a lot of time carrying this one. For the money, I don't know if this can be beat.
