A bit of background:
The light was first advertised on their warranty card..no one suspected much until fellow cpf member AardvarkSagus posed the question to Nicole of Eagletac here. I don't think the light was ever officially announced, but they are available at some stores.
It seems they're currently available here.
here is the light:
Nicely packaged, as usual of Eagletac.
Manual, Warranty card, Lanyards, Orings, and even a tub of oring lube!!
For this review, the OP reflector and the Tailstanding cap are included
NOTE: The tailcap failed to activate for me approximately 10% of the time.. I tried 50 clicks. I also tried dissasembling the cap, and oiling the switch.. no difference. :shrug:I contaced Nicole over at eagletac.. "The defective switch module was found in the optional tail-stand tail-cap. EagleTac has already checked their stock to ensure all the switches are good."
oops, did I forget the important part? Filters!!! and the light, of course ;)
the clip looks crooked at this angle. in real life, it is not.

The RGB system is just plain awesome. The coatings on the filters make the light look very cool! :thumbsup:
The light seems very sturdy for now, but,I noticed that the filters would rattle when they weren't installed.. no problem when installed.
The UI is nice and easy to use, and the light doesn't jumped immediately to the brightness you want, it ramps it up. Very cool effect!
I went out on a night jog with this in my pocket..
ow. the plastic antiroll ring digs into ones leg. rather irritating, so I decided to carry it in my hand. though cooler looking, plastic wasnt the best material to use, IMO.
All in all, this is a decently sturdy light, with a nice and easy UI to use, though I've gotten confused at times. The only annoyance I would see is the hard antiroll ring.. which does a very good job at that, and the messy beam, OP or SMO.
As for the RGB kit,I recommend most people get it! they filters are top notch!
