Default head lamp

ive owned quite a few and loved some of them but never like that they didnt shine any kind of distance. there is a silver and black BRINKMAN at wal-mart $9.96 that has the best bright white long shinning yet wide beem ive seen on a super priced headlamp. i bought one for my wife and when we tracked my one deer int he rain this year (me and my two brothers,and her) it was hand down the best light all around only thing the mag lights did better was shine a little farther but still put the black whole in the center of the beem.

just bought the same light today, and all i can say is it is really bright, and i like that the beam has no black hole in the middle, i just wonder if it will stay lit for 15 hours like they say, really bright for 3aaa batteries. cant wait to try it in the woods walking in.

You can adjust the beam on the mag lights to avoid the "Black hole" in the middle.
