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.

These photos are only for the purpose of showing the spot size across each model. Same camera settings, but different nights where how much moon will cause a large difference in brightness. For example the top two images, the C8+ PM1 is brighter.

The L21A SFT40 photo below is exactly the same as the L21B SFT40.
