Novatac just announced a heck of a deal, for those of you in the market for a new flashlight. When you buy a Novatac at full price from an authorized dealer (like me), you can get one of their new lights from them for $20 plus shipping. The models included are the Storm, Special Ops, and Classic. Considering that the lights start at $89, this is a pretty sweet deal.
The Novatac lights feature a switch that is probably my favorite out of the 200+ flashlights that I stock.Ã‚ Unlike most of the tactically oriented models where you lightly press for momentary activation and click all the way for constant on, you can press the Novatac switch as hard as you want for either operation.Ã‚ Press and hold for momentary and release when you are done to have it turn off.Ã‚ Quickly press it to leave it on.Ã‚ Each model has multiple brightnesses and all except the Wichita have strobe, so you have versatility when you need it.
I haven’t given you two people who actually read this blog a coupon in a long time.Ã‚ Shame on me!Ã‚ Use gggp10 for 10% off your entire order.Ã‚ The coupon has no restrictions, minimum order, limit on number of uses, or any of that crap.Ã‚ Use it as many times as you want and send it to as many friends and family as you want.
My employees and I have added over 500 new items to the site in the past couple of months, so you have a lot to choose from!
The 4Sevens Quark RGB is the light that I find myself wandering over to mess with more than any other light in the store.Ã‚ It features a really neat version of the CREE MC-E LED, which is used in big and bright lights like the JETBeam M1X, Olight M30, and Fenix Tk40.Ã‚ The MC-E has four dies, which is basically the same as four LEDs on the same chip.Ã‚ The big and bright lights use four white dies to put out a ton of light, but the RGB has four different colored dies.Ã‚ As is hopefully obvious from the name, the colors are red, green, blue, and white.Ã‚ Each die can be powered and run separately, so you can access each one individually.Ã‚ This gives you four colors in one light without having to use filters or use a ton of LEDs crammed in the head.
When the head of the RGB is tightened, the light is always white. When the head is loosened, you have the choice between the red, green, and blue. Each time you tighten and loosen the head, you switch to a new color. The RGB has the same modes as the other Quark models, five brightnesses, strobe, SOS, and beacon. Tap the switch when the light is on to switch modes.
The reflector on the light is wide and shallow, which is nice to see on a light. A lot of lights these days are going after optimum throw (lighting up far away objects), but the RGB’s reflector will spill the light in a wide area in front of the light, lighting up a lot of area at once.
Enough flashlight nerd talk, here is a flashlight nerd video:
Next up we have the Olight SR90 Intimidator. I might have to do another video where I have more than 100 yard or so to show the thing off, because it is ridiculous. If you have a job or volunteer in a position where you need to see things that are far away at night, the SR90 is hard to beat. The light is rated to light up objects up to a kilometer away. I can’t even see that far during the day in the pollen haze that we have during spring in Georgia.
The light is easily one of the nicest that I sell and have ever seen. The machining is top notch, the case is really nice, and the performance is incredible. I know it sounds like I am gushing about one of my own products, but the SR90 really is fun to use and is a serious tool for those that need it (or just want a ton of light). The one big drawback is the weight. At about 3.5 lbs, the SR90 is definitely not made for ultralight backpackers and the included padded shoulder strap is highly recommended for extended use.
As usual, I went completely overboard making flashlight videos this week (I stopped at 18 thanks to the record levels of pollen killing my voice).Ã‚ I’m really glad that I do this for a living, because my obsession with creating light would be a little unhealthy if I did not profit from it.
First up is a video featuring my current favorite light, the ZebraLight SC30, along with the SC30w, SC50, and SC50w.Ã‚ The w notates a warm tint, which is closer to what you would see with an incandescent bulb light, like the class Mini MagLite.
I posted about my love for the SC30 a little while back, and the infatuation still stands.Ã‚ I’ve been really pleased with the performance and ease of use of the light, so having the AA option in the SC50 and SC50w will be great for those of you that do not care for lithium batteries.
