Hunting Guide

The most common question I get is what do I recommend for hunting, so I'll just note down a list of torches with their usable shooting range (safely identifying an animal), you'll be able to see much further though. These are based on feedback I've received from customers.

 

Every single brand uses a rating called the ANSI Standard which is a calculated range with a light meter. For decent usable lighting in ideal weather conditions, you generally take any brand's range spec and halve it at the very least. Range varies greatly on weather conditions (fog, humidity, rain etc), and how green everything is. For example: a white house will be seen at much further range than a green tree, due to how much light is absorbed and reflected.

Note: I have now renamed the Osram C8+, L21B, L21A models to Convoy C8+ etc with their LED type, I believe it was confusing to have an Osram C8+ and Convoy C8+, best to have everything under the one brand name. Previously I was building the Osram models myself, now I'm getting the factory to assemble them. I am still modifying the L21B model to significantly increase the range.

130-350m (Mountable)

400-500m (Mountable)

600-800m (Mountable)

350-600m (Handheld only)

The Convoy C8+ SST40 should be avoided if using high magnification and/or a suppressor. I've been told that such a wide beam causes issues at 10X or above and using a suppressor causes glare.
