Not going to get into the politics of where they are made like last time. Here is a Very nice Russian website that tested all the <span style="text-decoration: underline">current</span> flashlights. Beamshots are posted and they did a heck of a job letting us know how the light will look at night.

You can buy the lights at 4 sevens, battery junction, bugoutgear usa and a host of other US dealers. See candlepower forums for dealers

Re: New "updated" flashlight beam test

Funny the missed so many excellent lights if their intent was to test "all" the lights. I don't see any of the older or new JETbeam models at all... I have their new RRT-3 and it's the finest light I've ever owned. (so far)

I find that the best testing of lights is on the Candle Power Forum. Lots of knowledge there...

I noticed that they missed JB's and you are correct the new JB's are awesome. I like the power of the RRT3 but not the size. I went with the dminivx D mini VX ultra sst50 at 600 lumens in my shirt pocket. Maybe the JB's were not available in the USSR??
RRT3 RRT3

Just to rehash some of the best (brightest) light brands are:

Nitecore
Jetbeam
Fenix
Zebra light
Olight
Lumapower
Thrunight
Novatac

Re: New "updated" flashlight beam test

It's all a matter of perspective. I carried a Sreamlight SL-20 or 4 D cell Maglight for years so the size of the RRT3 seems small to me <grin>.

Re: New "updated" flashlight beam test

I carry a Streamlight Stinger DS LED HP at work...I don't know what technology it uses but it damn near harnesses the power of the Sun...and cranks it out at range. I can light up alleys from a city block away. How does this light compare to the ones mentioned in the test?
