One of My Favorite Quotes...

“The Master in the art of living makes little distinction between his work and his play, his labor and his leisure, his mind and his body, his education and his recreation, his love and his religion. He hardly knows which is which. He simply pursues his vision of excellence in whatever he does, leaving others to decide whether he is working or playing. To him he is always doing both.”

Surefire 6PX Pro Dual Output Flashlight

A couple of months ago, I bought the Surefire G2X Pro flashlight for an emergency light for the light. I liked it so much I wanted to buy another one. But instead of buying the same exact one, I decided to get the Surefire 6PX Pro dual output LED flashlight for the sake of variety and the fact I wanted something new to blog. Here are some detailed photos of the 6PX Pro. Since it has dual output for general purpose use, we know this flashlight is going to be put to some serious use. At least that's what I plan to do...

Just like the G2X Pro, the 6PX Pro is a two mode light with a low at 15 lumens and a high of 200 lumens. To me it's perfect for most tasks that the general public would use this for. 200 lumens can be too much light for most household tasks, but awesome for outdoor spot lighting. Like most of the Surefire light product line, this flashlight uses two cr123 lithium batteries. Making it perfect for emergencies where you know it works when it counts during those tough circumstances. Others may dislike the use of those batteries because of the cost, but it's not as bad as they make it out to be. Considering lithium AA batteries cost as much. I just can't stand leaking alkaline batteries and how it ruins your stuff. More photos here...

Here's a product description off of Amazon about the Surefire 6PX Pro... "The 6PX Pro is a dual-output LED flashlight. It boasts 200 lumens of max output but also features a useful low-output mode that lets you extend the runtime per set of batteries. The 6PX Pro comes with a press/click tailcap switch. SureFire's 6PX LED illumination tools share many features, such as virtually indestructible high-efficiency LED heads, 200 lumens of maximum output, deep micro-textured reflectors, and hard-anodized aluminum bodies. But their differences let you select precisely the right light for your needs. Single-output or dual output. Press/twist tactical tailcap switching or press/click switching. They're ideal for outdoor use, emergency preparedness, everyday-carry needs, and are well-suited for the needs of first responders.

So far, the 6PX Pro is rugged and reliable and like most Surefire lights it can take a beating. Sure, I wouldn't mount this flashlight on a gun since it wasn't made for that type of job. But that doesn't mean the light itself isn't tough. So, this is high quality stuff that's priced and targeted to the general public. The design of the light also seems to target the masses as well. It's not as tactical looking as the other Surefire offerings. I also like the feel of the aluminum body of the 6PX Pro. I prefer to have some knurling on it for added grip, but that's ok. Also, the finger groves don't do much for me. They're more for form than function in my opinion. More photos here...

You can see the difference between the Surefire G2X Pro and the 6PX Pro. Not only in the material used (aluminum vs. Nitrolon) for the body of the light, but also the design of it. The head units are basically the same as far as I can tell. Then again, the LED heads can not be removed without some serious effort due to it being designed to stay put. All-in-all, I'm a very satisfied customer and find this light an excellent value. So I recommend this light and will say that Surefire has a winner with these entry level lights...
