mdough6: Good review! Very helpful. I keep on on my bedstand now. Thanks!
Codbozo22: for 20 dollars more you could have gotten the Olight s10 Baton which is what i just got with a max output of 320 lumens it's really worth it. Plus, it runs off of a cr123 which from olight on going gear.com its only $2 and it lasts a long time. I will agree though that the XL50 is a good light. i also have one of those. great review
Jeffrey Wilkinson: its shaped just like the aaa solitaire they make !
fixnethin: I have and LOVE this flashlight, I might buy the magtec light cause its brighter, but I'm debating between that n the xl200? (Those little batts are expensive) but I have a ? How is the xl50 adjustable beam? I can't figure it out on mine
Brandon Eme: yeah its slick, i wrap mine in bicycle innertubes so it doesnt slip,
QuestoDomini .: Great torch, just need an equally nice carry case for it.
snake7686: Good light and good review!
kingd3001: For anyone looking a good holster for this light check out a good single spare pistol magazine pouch I use one to carry this light in works perfect for me try to found a pouch that will holds a glock 17-19 magazine pouch and that should work
mducheyl: So, It's turnable...
You could say the same in 3 minutes!!!!
sooooo boring and maybe if you twist it in your hand 8,000 times less, would had time to look at... hmmm maybe could be good to see... THE LED!?!?!?!?!
what kind of led uses!!! ohh great glass, but What is inside????
Richsifu7: I put some black duct tape around the back, cut to the length of the smooth pattern between the end cap and the beginning of the "knurling". I've found that is good enough to add some good grip but it is flush with the knurling lines and keeps it from slipping.
bobTom37: just bought this to replace my coleman high performance led i lost, and i am impressed. maglite really knows what there doing with led's. they are so bright for their size.
Richsifu7: Well they've come out with the Maglite XL200 which fixed the issues that the XL100 had with the mode switching and made it brighter, up to 172 lumens with the 5 modes that the XL100 has but with the clicky interface of the XL50 that everyone seemed to like and prefer. I have a review on my channel and it's a great light with great features, but I still do love my XL50 as well.
TheCrushmaster: @urbanbugout Yeah, it'll be interesting to see what they come out with. :-)
Thanks for the comment. Its a great american made flashlight. A few issues Im sure mag will fix in 2.0 or 3.0.
Just might do that as I'm like working with paracord too. Thanks.
The138Monster: Great review. How about making a paracord x cross wrap over the horizontal lines to give it grip and to fit the contour of your hand? meadhall.info/paracordstuff/paracord6.jpg
TheCrushmaster: Good overview. I'm currently running a Coast LED (which I won't be keeping in my system, as I want an all-American/European system) and an Underwater Kinetics eLED Penlight I as my lighting capabilities. Considering this light is "virtually" USA-made, bright, and relatively inexpensive, I think it'd be a good choice. We'll see.
