Surefire Is So Hollywood

Surefire flashlights have been in tons of movies… here’s a look at some of them:

I can’t believe I’ve never seen most of those.  I always get so hyped about movies when I see the trailer, but the throught of going to an actual movie theater where I can’t pause the film to go to the bathroom, make good food to eat multiple times, and maybe even split a long one up over a few days, really doesn’t interest me.  Normally I end up forgetting about movies now entirely.  I’ve been watching a lot of good documentaries to unwind… watched one the other day on the U.S. Postal Inspectors.  Fun Fact: It’s the oldest law enforcement agency in the U.S…. and some of the stuff they do appears to be pretty high-speed.

I’ve always been a strong supporter of Surefire.. except for that tactical derp specimen known as the wrist light.

Next up for Surefire, Bollywood?

I have always wondered if there is an entire prop crew in Hollywood that had the job of running down CR123 batteries for Surfire flashlights until they are nearly dead. I used to watch CSI, and the investigators were always in some dark house, searching for clues with some big 500 lumen Surefire that was no brighter than a candle.

SUREFIRE sucks… take a look at their lumens… you buy a flashlight to be bright…. right? OR is it because of tactiCOOL Tomfoolery in the namesake? Seriously, why pay $200+ for a 100 lumen craplight from SUREFIRE when you can get a smaller FENIX that has 280 lumens for $90??

A Surefire G2X is $70 MSRP with an output of 320 lumens.

It is also made in America and backed by the manufacturer for life. And they are built like tanks.

I broke a Fenix light, Fenix told me to contact my vendor (in Engrish). My vendor said it was past their 30 days return period, and to deal with Fenix. In the end I had to fix the damn thing myself.

Now compare this to when my X200B broke (no idea how my mom had it). I called up Surefire, the rep spoke English promptly gave me a RMA number. I shipped it out on Monday. On Friday they called me up asking “Your X200B is not repairable, do you mind if we upgrade you to a X300?” And the following Friday I had a refurbished X300 in my hands.

In closing I would like to say fuck Fenix, fuck Fenix right in their ear hole. I will never buy one of their lights ever again.

Don’t you know that is the one to use when you set your phasers on stun?
