The tint is lovely, nice and neutral, with a slightly cooler spill and slightly more yellow corona.
The deep OP reflector also gives a pleasant beam with decent throw for a tube style light.
Pocket clip is VERY sturdy and tight, you won't be losing this light from your pocket!
The knurling on the body is a very classy diamond shape which gives great grip in the hands.
The battery level indicator on the electronic switch works perfectly as well, letting the user know when voltage is getting low.
The emitter is an XPL2 which isn't run too hard, so heat isn't an issue at all.
This will be my new work carry light because it's packed with features and it truly excellent value for money.
The Thorfire TK18 comes close with only a few minor issues. My sample had oily fingermarks on the inside of the lens! With the aid of a vice and timber shims I removed the bezel and cleaned the lens, so easily fixed. Also, the front bezel was not perfectly even, rendering wobbly head standing. A fix would require beveling one of the crenelations - again not a major issue.
The light is otherwise well made and thoughtful in design. The beam and tint in particular are outstanding for this price point. Only annoyance is the VERY slow (7.5 sec - seriously?) ramping speed of the default (from factory) UI. I use the alternative 4 level mode set which fortunately exhibits very well spaced outputs.
One thing to note regarding battery safety: the battery's protection circuit was faulty - would not accept charge. I was not prepared to remove it to try to identify the cell manufacturer to see if it was worth salvaging. Worse still, the negative terminal (of the protection circuit, not the cell itself), is made from some cheap alloy that had rust spots and actually began disintegrating upon bearing the screw force of the spring contact while screwing the tail cap on. I drained the battery and plan to dispose of it properly. Had I not received the promotional discount, this would have cost another point in my rating. The charger that came with light is a basic CC/CV unit and is otherwise perfectly adequate - time will tell how durable it is.
Overall a fine recommendation with exception of the supplied battery.
