With the LED LENSERs I have , if my rechargeables go flat I can swap them out for normal batteries

I take 3 headtorches anyway so will never have the problem of no light.

You must not use of often enough to notice. Some go fishing not just on forums.

Good headtorch for £10 but Iíd rather spend double and get a better one.

EDIT - Looked back at old threads theyíve been mentioned in and Iím the 3rd to mention glare off them.

Like I said :

There comfy at night
Cheap
Batteries last well
Plenty bright enough just to much spread.

Like anything, a £40 Jrc x lite carbon Net is light enough for me and great for £40 yet people say the Dymags are better at £120. Everyone has an opinion and mine is there fine for general use but landing fish at night I prefer one with less glare and more focus.

you might want to get your eyes checked as there are lots of people on here using them and your the 1st person to ever complain about a glare from one ?

AND NO unlike you Im not being a sarcastic **** ! either !!

it can be a sign you have cataracts so worth checking out

Got one of these as was recommended to me last year, good bit of kit, I like the fact you can either turn on the red or white, rather than scroll through options

I use 2, I have a Petzl Tikka for generally 'seeing what I am doing' and an LED Lenser for lighting up a spot at distance. I never intended to carry two around but like to sleep wearing one and the external battery pack on the LED Lenser makes it less comfortable to sleep in compared to the Petzl, but the Petzl doesn't offer the bright light I sometimes need to re-cast in the night.

Got a old nash one cost me a fiver 15 years ago still works well. Had a petzl for about 10 years. 3 weeks ago someone gave me a led lenser h14 I thought thanks but bit over kill. However its mint so light you can hardly feel it dull as you want and then if you need the power it's there. Would I pay 90 for one. No way but as free gift what someone found it's a bargin

It glares terrible from the bottom. I ended up painting the bottom to reduce it. Eye site must be going bless ya.

And yes it does focus but still not a solid beam. Spreads a lot.

Like I said great torch but thereís better. Petzl , coast , Fenik all do better for not a lot more. use mine as a back up.

Iíve used many over the years to. Military purposes and fishing. So donít worry I no whatís good and bad.

been using one for years I dont get any glare ?

its got a FOCUS control for beam control ? the clue is in the name

over the years I have quite a collection of head torches
a couple of LED Lensers that cost silly money at the time A Fenex headtorch a few by Coleman (they are good)
various Energisers a few Petzel models had most over the years especially when I used to beach fish

but the real truth is ! you should never need a torch brighter than 300 Lumens for normal fishing situations most of the silly bright ones are total overkill and not necessary I swear some people are afraid of the dark lol

Itís a good torch but not amazing. Glare from it during use is poor and better designs out there. Maybe not for the money though. Battery life is good but the beam isnít strong more of a spread. D

I bought one when you suggested this on a previous thread. My biggest requirement is to be able to turn on red light straight away without scrolling through white light options....I have this model set so one button turns red on and off and the other button does same with white light...also agree about rechargeable batteries, I want to be able to use torch at any time, not have to wait for charging.

IMHO a headtorch needs to be
comfortable , have a red light option. be bright enough to do what ever you need ,have replaceable batteries ( dont want a rechargable one going flat on me ) You can have a pack of rechargeable AAA batteries
Just my opinion oh yes and not pull my pants down on the price lol
so LINKY POO
