A Closer Look
Above you can see the flashlight both with, and without the clip attached. The clip may not be the prettiest, but it seems to be both flexible as well as comfortable to hold. Personally, with my large hands, I think it’s actually easier to hold and a lot more comfortable as well.
As you can see, the screws that hold the side clip are right there, in your face. Although this does make it easy to put on and take off in a hurry, it makes the light look a little tacky. The same could be accomplished with a screw that was perhaps flush with the clip.
The markings on the crown hold not only the name of the light, but also the website where you can buy other Ra Lights. Again, this is a little tacky. I understand the branding of the product, but placing your website, engraved at the top is an unnecessary advertisement. On the other hand, there is a serial number engraved as well. This is nice, as you don’t have to worry about your jealous friend stealing your light and saying he bought one.
For a tactical light, the crown seems to be less effective than other lights such as the Brite-Strike. At this point, i think the cut outs are more for decoration than for any actual purpose. Although the top is obviously strong enough, I’d like to see these edges a little sharper for use in applying pressure points.
Here is a little more of an up close shot of the LED itself for those of you that like to see exacatly what LED is used.
At the other end of the spectrum, or the back of the light, is the Raised Clicky. This switching system is by far the easiest to use in my honest opinion of all other tactical lights. If you go for it quickly, it is easy to turn on high and then turn off. For those of you that like to keep your light in some form of holster, you may want to get the model with the flush button, as it is less likely to turn on this way.
Below is what the light looks like after you have taken it apart. Powering the light is a standard CR123A Lithium Battery. The threads are fairly tight so there is little chance of the light ever falling apart unless you want it to.
