What LED Flashlight and mount is is best for night shooting ?

Thanks guys, thats given me a lot of good info.

What is de -doming, I presume its making the light more powerful, but does it compromise reliability ?De-doming is the removal of the silicon dome that covers the led.

Its been around for a while and increases output substantially.

I wouldnt worry about reliability if its from a reputable manufacturer.

I would suggest you go straight to the 2X. We specifically designed them for NZ hunting conditions as an all-purpose hunter, and they offer huge performance, plus value. They are designed to be light at just 400gms including batts – thats 0.9lb addition to a 22 or other rifle – and thats no problem. We have shot thousands of bunnies with them on rimfires and centrefires and weight has never been an issue. Not once. Nitecore and Armytek make some good stuff, but dont perform anywhere near on a par with the Maxtoch 2X. Company product stats show the Nitecore P30 produces max 95,000 lux, and the Armytek 150,000. The 2X produces 363,000 lux on high, 270,000 on medium, and (just tested mine on meter few minutes ago to find it reads) 122,000 lux on low beam. Gadgetman uses low beam at times for bunnies..

This extreme performance means the Maxtoch gives you versatility in range from 0 to 1200+ meters – and that covers not only bunnies, but all longer distance night shooting youll do in NZ for bigger animals. If you are out night shooting and come on some reds/fallow at 2-400m – you WILL want the extra light power.

Good lights are expensive and you may only want to buy one top line setup. Little Nitecore P30 and Armytek will cost you $170-200NZ at a guess. A new 2X is about $137NZ – quite a bit cheaper – and gadgetman services any that need it. These Maxtochs are designed to be all-purpose hunters – combining beam width plus long range hotspot, and can be quickly weapon mounted using Maxtochs quick release mounts, or used as a handheld spottie.

By all means buy another if you wish but the Maxtoch is well beyond the others in performance. Having tested heaps of other lights, we designed Maxtochs as ideal setup for the full range of hunting conditions you are going to meet. Heres the 2X link – scan through the orders and youll see how strongly they sell to kiwi hunters:

Yes to this. Ive shot deer with my Maxtoch (private land reducing numbers for a farmer) out to 250-300 yards no problem. Good positive animal id and lighted background. They are amazing. Only thing I dont like is the multi level switch. I wish it was just full bore all the time.

burtonatormikeeandMightyBooshlike this.

i have to admit i repair 100s of lights…well heading towards 1200 (HID +LED +Halogen)

and though i love my LED lenser, Gadgetmans maxtoch blew it away

but wait theres more (suzanne paul voice)

i have found bunnies will attract more to the high end spectrum, dear go for the low. if the animal in question is light shy then red is good for rabbit and hare and deer is better in amber.

halogen will give both ends of the spectrum but no way near as efficient on batteries

Agreed, I always just have mine on high beam, once its been on high beam it seems to dim on any other setting

I mainly have mine on low beam and can spot and shoot small game out 200m odd or more. I couldnt stand the disappointment of turning off the torch from the higher settings and seeing how dim the headlights were.

There are only three types of people in this world. Those that can count, and those that cant!

that p30 just looks like an expensive c8?
