I seem to have amassed a few of these.

Great little light :tu: I have 2 of them actually :facepalm: The first was 900 lm in turbo mode and then I lost it :oops: and a while after I replaced it with the newer model with 1000 lm I found the first one :woohoo: So now that I have 2 I am back and forth when carrying them but mostly carry the small rechargeable i1R EOS as it stays clipped to my keys :cheers: I have been carrying the H1R lately as well since it can be used as a headlamp, been dark in the mornings when I get to work and it helps me find my way around :D now with the time change I hopefully won't need it as much :salute:

I also carry the headlamp version. Mine is the non recharging model though.

I think that you can buy a conversion kit that comes with the magnetic charging end of that light and the rechargeable battery :think: I think mine was the regular version but they were running a deal with the conversion kit included :cheers:

Hey all! Been a while. Been busy with life as usual. Just got one of the new M2R Pros. Absolutely loving it so far. Please excuse the blurry photo. My phone will not let me upload anything larger.

Sure.

I have a number of Li Ion batteries and don’t mind charging them on my charger.

Nice to have backups ready to go.

Hey Poncho! Good to see you as well!! I am loving it so far. I don’t have a Seeker, so I can’t directly compare, but I can say that this light is definitely a thrower. It puts out a defined circular beam and seems to go on forever, it actually seems to throw farther than my warrior X! This is a good and a bad thing I guess, because up close sometimes it is better to have more of a flood light, but I have made it work as my edc since it was delivered. The tailswitch is much improved now that it is slightly raised, but the magnet on it is generally useless for holding the light horizontally, as can be expected for a light of this size. Before this, my edc was a baton 2. I love having a tailswitch for moments when you need the light quickly, and the combo of this and a deep carry clip was exactly what I wanted.

I bought the M2R Pro Warrior, despite the doom and gloom at BLF over the proprietary battery. Wow...I cannot wait to mount this one on my rifle and give it a go! I love the high output, but a moonlight mode that lasts for ages. Very good set up for me.



That Seeker 2 looks real nice! That color is amazing.

This time 2017 I rounded up all my flashlights mainly leatherman and mag light fitted them all with new batteries and took them to the charity shop.

Then ordered 8 new olights ranging from the S10R baton lll up to the R50 seeker. The baton gets used every night walking the dog the H1 and H2s get used when doing odd jobs where I need both hands free,  I have used the warrior a couple of times when the baton has not been charged. And I have yet to use the seeker.

Just recently I have had to fight hard the urge to buy replacements as they have updated most of their line up since then and they always discount heavily this time of the year.

I had to keep telling myself I have all the torches I need. :D

My trouble is i never show initiative, but that's only because no one has told me to.

Very nice Poncho. I have the non pro seeker 2, great light, Only think I don't like is when you double click for turbo and battery is too low it steps down to a lower mode which is kinda annoying, wish it just stayed in the same mode, other than that it has been my go to light for awhile now, nice blend of spill and throw and insanely bright.

It is has a great range and great flood :cheers: putting it and the M2r side by side you can tell that the M2r has a bit more throw but the area that the Seeker2 Pro actually lights up is amazing :o I can turn my whole yard into mid morning with the click of a switch :rofl:

What do you guys think of the tint of the M2R Pro? It is a warm tint on mine, but seems a bit...yellowish.

Thanks poncho, that’s what I have been telling myself.

When the urge got too great I had a wander over to some of the flashlight forums to look at some of their collections and it made me think again. Not that I got anything against people who collect flashlights or flashlight collecting, it’s just I collect enough things already :rofl:

My trouble is i never show initiative, but that's only because no one has told me to.

The variety they have is nice too. The new one in red caught my eye. I just wish they had better run times.

I am not a heavy flashlight user (unless at home checking things around the house) so the run time work great for me :salute: and the red sure is nice looking isn't it :dd: :like:

It isn't as though I am running a light down completely when I use it. I think it is just one of those things I look for. I will agree though, for carry, they are hard to beat. And it isn't as if 8 days of moonlight mode is going to be a major problem haha.

Honestly, in the flashlight world, I think the focus on lumens and runtime is really not where they need to put their effort. The truth is, heat management is where we need focus. There are some great lights out there, and their biggest limitation is turbo runtimes that last only a minute or so due to the potential to overheat.

 :iagree: I do wish that Turbo would last longer but at least it is there when you need it :like: I am leaning on liking the M2R Pro more than the Seeker 2 Pro as the spot is more what I want rather than flood for looking in my yard at night :salute: The S1R II was my go to before that though :D
