Surefire makes some good lights, but like the x300 not everyone can justify spending $190+ on a light whenever they can find one just as good for cheaper.i have two surefire lights and two streamlights, and they are great lights, but my solarforce lights are brighter,have a longer range, and are just as reliable and they werent more than $30. In all honesty flashlights arent that "high tech", a good reliable light doesnt need to be uber expensive to be good.
