Next, I`m going to briefly talk about the Malkoff Hound Dog flashlight. And sorry about the apostrophes, I`m on a silly french keyboard.

This is the Malkoff Devices "Hound Dog" Flashlight. The output is 325 (measured) Out The Front Lumens. It was designed primarily for throw (reach) and will easily illuminate objects at 1000+ feet. The Flashlight has an approximate 7 degree beam with good spill. The LED is a Cree XP-G. The reflector was custom designed by Don McLeish for this flashlight. It has a High/Low function accessed by head rotation. The low output is approximately 40-60 lumens depending on batteries used.As above, the light`s putting out 325 out-the-front lumens, which is EXTREMELY bright. All of Malkoff`s lights come with the warning that you can cause eye damage at close range.
This light is built more for throw than for spill, but as you can see below, it does an alright job of illuminating the surroundings as well.

Take your pick, but it`s a beautiful light!
