    Flashlights!!! Who doesn’t love having a good dependable flashlight?

    5 weeks ago today I went on a goose hunt Ken Power and Jeremy Cash. We had a good day in the field and Jeremy got his first band. We left the field and when I reached for my flashlight that night, it wasn’t on my belt. I use this flashlight every day of my life and when you don’t have it, you realize how much you use it. I always bought different lights and none of them ever held up.

    I’ve tried a lot of different reputable brands that advertise they’re a tactical flashlight and you can’t kill them. I went to the Toronto Sportsman Show 3 years ago and stopped by to see the owner of Powertac Canada. It seemed like a lot of other light booths throughout the show. When Thomas talked about the lights and the way other companies measure the lumens “at the bulb” instead of “out the front” it started to make sense because these lights are brighter than any other lights I’ve owned that stated higher lumens. He talked about the warranty they have and I decided I was going to spend the $85 for the show special which was the Powertac E5.

    I finally had the chance to go back to the field where I was sure I lost my light and this is what I found. The light had laid out there, pushed into the mud, rained on, snowed on and frozen multiple times. I had to dig it out with my pocket knife because it was frozen in the ground. When I got it out of the ground I clicked the button and nothing! All I could think was I’m going to have to go on the hunt for a new light at this years Sportsman Show. Walking back to the truck I clicked it one more time and it flicked on then off again. I grabbed the end cap where the switch is, tightened it and on it came.

    This is the best light on the market and it beats any of the other big manufacturers I have bought from previously and today proved it was the best money I’ve ever spent on a flashlight.
