Thinking about buying one.would you recomend this one.Want to use it for getting to my stand in the morning or for tracking.If not what do you recomend would like to keep the cost under$50. Thanks to all in advance
i have a g2 light and love it. it is very very bright you may want a red filter for getting to your stand but for tracking after dark you can't beat it it lights up the ground like it's 12 oclock in the afternoon. the only problem i have with the light is battery life they eat up batteries like there's no tomorrow.
Surefire makes the best lights. Period. BUT, I would caution you about the G2.
There is no "off" position with this light. On the other lights, you can unscrew
the tailcap a bit and it will not come on if the button is pressed. Not so the G2. If you carry in a pocket or pack, be advised the zenon bulbs get HOT!
Hot enough to start a fire. I also feel the surefire series are a bit overkill for
going to your stand. And the white lights do burn a set of batteries in 'bout an
hour. I do use my G2 for trailing, and I have a small disc of cardboard cut out
and placed in the tailcap to prevent accidental "on" situations. I also have the blue lens cap. It is not any better than just the fabulous beam for blood trails, imo.
