I just got this light because I didn't want to spend too much for a light I might not use that much. Aaron went through all the lights with me and suggested this because of the xenon bulb. As soon as I turned it on I knew I had the right light. It is super bright and fits great in my hand (medium size hands)The lanyard is well made and you better use it because the light drops like a rock if you let go of it. You could spend more for a light but I don't know why you would want to. This is the light if you don't want to spend much and this is the light if you want a small light and it just is an all around great light.

I have a Surge. Love it. bright compact, great zoom. Bought my 2 dive buddies a Torrent for their Bdays. 1st, noticed when loosening the ring a tiny bit for the zoom function, that the light shuts off (looses contact with batteries). My Surge has clip that hold the electronics in place. They forgot that on the Torrent. 2nd, it just shuts off sometimes under water for no reason. Luckily I carry a great back up (another PTech light that works great. I think the Quality Control guy called in sick the day these two Torrents were made... if you buy one test it good before you are stuck with it. We waited to long after the purchase to return them. Tried swapping batteries etc, before realizing the lights were just no good.

About Me Advanced
Comments about Princeton Tec Torrent Xenon Dive Light:
I happen to like Princeton Tec lights. This was the first one that has failed me using the first time (I had made sure the light was screwed on well). I had it for a night dive, didn't even turn it on and found corrosion the next morning with water inside the light. I've had a similar one that I broke and this was a replacement. Leisurepro was awesome though. I returned the product and they sent me a new one... no questions asked.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Great light..when it isn't flooded
from Boston, MA
I use this light as a back-up in New England, and have used it as a primary in clear water. It's bright, and a nice size and weight. But I have had to have it replaced TWICE due to it leaking and the batteries corroding. The first time was after I had used it for a few months, and the second time after I used it only once. LP has been great about just replacing it, but I'd like to get more than one use from a light, and am tired of paying to ship it back for replacement. I wouldn't buy it again,and definitely wouldn't recommend it to anyone else. The free light that came with it is awesome!
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
Good price performance ratio

It is a good light to have it always in the BC pocket.
Excellent backup light

This is a great backup light that would be bright enough to use as a primary if needed. I hook this to my BC with a quick release coil lanyard, but it also fits in my BC pocket. Well made, easy to use switch.
