I've spoken with Armytek flashlights and they have agreed to a pass-around for this forum. I figured there are enough other campers, hunters, etc like me, plus cops soldiers and all the others who just love flashlights.
Basically if there is enough interest, they will send me a couple lights to mail to people. What they are looking for mostly is hunters, police, army, etc (and other gadget lovers, flashlight lovers, campers, etc) to post pictures, provide input, discuss the light in the thread, etc so they can get ideas and interest going.
I've cleared this with a moderator as well.
I personally hunt, fish, camp, etc so the light is really interesting to me. Basically it is a light that is pretty small, but can blast a lot of light out there.
The biggest thing about the light though, is while you can use the pre-defined setup on how the flashlight works, the flashlight itself is almost totally programmable. Can program what modes/brightnesses go with if the head is tight or loose, how many in each, etc. You can program how fast the blink rate is in the strobe mode even, or what type of flashlight drive it uses, for you flashlight lovers out there. You can pick the LED tint when you order, what color the bezel is, what type of reflector is inside etc.
The company itself is great (which is part of the reason I'm doing this). They have a little subforum on candlepowerforums, and they basically directly respond to any customer questions, take their suggestions (very seriously, and have already changed UI based on suggestions, in addition to saying they will incorporate the suggestions into future lights).
Anyways, the idea is they will send a flashlight to be mailed around to gather comments, and foster discussion so they can get a better idea of what the public wants, and to generate interest I imagine. You get to keep it for a week, program it, play with it, take it out with you, whatever. Then it goes to the next person.
IN THIS THREAD: They want to see if there is enough interest to do this. So for now just post a reply mentioning if you're interested and what sort of use the flashlight might get (IE: If you're a LEO, hunter, fisherman, etc)
Disclaimer: Other than maybe getting a free light I have NO affiliation with this company. I Just saw their forum and their light and thought it was really cool. So when they contacted me about the pass-around I said I'd try to gauge interest! I don't work for Armytek in any capacity.
