Now wide is the beam? I have a backup light that has an 8 degree beam. I'm curious if this light has a wide enough beam to be used as a primary light on night dives.
Switch broke on my first dive. Never got to use it. Too lazy to go thru return process so it is now in a landfill
It could be primary for night but I prefer to use my larger Princeton tec for that...no doubt I've seen people use it as primary for its smaller footprint. Bottom line is I love mine!
Its wide enough for a primary but I use it mainly for hunting fish & lobsters under ledges. Works great & super bright.
The company does not provide the beam angle but it is more on the narrow side, not quite as tight as an 8degree angle but more narrow than the typical primary. Given that it is 280 lumens you could use it as a primary.
This is a wide beam with a center spot that is a bit brighter. It is not a tight, concentrated beam.
Some people do use this as a primary, but it is generally considered a backup light.
