It's a Redline Blast RC. Has variable lumens of 32, 320, and 3200. That 3200 lumen is unreal. It literally shoots a beam further than my eye can see clearly. And, you can charge your iPhone from it while you're out hunting. A very cool light and not a wallet buster.

I had a Big Larry that put out some good light.
It got really finicky where small bumps would cause the light to flicker.

Otherwise I was happy with it.

I have one that will light out to 2 miles. Not very practical though. @6000 lumens, takes 8 matched 18650 battery's.

The Nebo lights I’ve owned are decent for use around the house but I wouldn’t carry one for serious use. I’ve had the same issue with flickering/turning off. I have two smaller rechargeable lights that have been fine so far but I don’t expect the internals to be of high quality for twenty bucks.

Eh, I may not take my Nebo into combat (and if that’s my concern, I have bigger issues), but it has been great for car projects.

OP, where did you buy it, and what was your cost, if you don't mind sharing?

I'm finding it on amazon for 79.99 shipped....

Sure, I wasn’t trying to be snarky. I have a half dozen Nebos and they’re good for what they are.

Say what you will about those Chinese factories, but they can pump out some fracking lumens.

It was on Amazon for that price. That's where I ordered it.

True.
The strong magnet on the Larry came in handy many times before the flickering/power issues started popping up.

The flickering/turning off has been an issue with the recent rechargeable ones. To fix it, you have to unscrew the base, unscrew the cap under the base, then take the battery out and clean the contacts on the battery and reinstall.

I use the nebo slide kings almost daily and they are a great durable light for the money, but aren’t waterproof.
