Microfire Warrior 35watt   vs   Polarion PF40  vs   Acro X990   vs   Rayzorlite (Old 50w)





Microfire Warrior III 35w



Pro
-Very Light Weight
-Nice Build
-Good Price (as long as dealers back-up if failures)
-Quick Start-up
-Good overall oup-put with good run-time



Con
-Bulb Temp High (Blue)
-Reflector is like brushed aluminum (what were they thinking!) Kills the throw...



They are getting close.....

Cold Start
Started Camera before lights




Microfire Warrior 35w  You can see some of the color changes (more than the other lights with some flickering; In person the color is blue with red/orange at start-up) this bulb goes through before warming up to blueish color. Quick Starting...

Great stuff Lips!!!

I've been longing for a Polarion for a long time.

That barn burner is incredible!

I'm glad to see more manufacturers move to warmer tints. The difference in color rendition is obvious in your pictures.

Is the Microfire still type II?

I look forward to the rotating shots. Do you have an Amondotech N30 to compare with these?
A few favorites from milkyspit, McGizmo, Surefire, MR Bulk and others

Here at Flashlight-Forums we put the "FUN" in "DYSFUNCTIONAL."

Thanks Chronos   :D



The BarnBurner has some awesome throw and output for sure...



I can't get used to that blue tint so I too hope to they move warmer...



The Microfire Warrior says III on the side of the light so I'm assuming type III        :dontknow:



No Amondotech to compare but yesterday I ordered the LITHIUM ION  35 watt version below:

http://www.cntoptree.com/detail.asp?id=102         $200 plus    $35 ems shipping = $235


So it shouldn't be long...    Those Chinese guys want: instant transferrers, money up-front before shipping so the are TOUGH CUSTOMERS to deal with... I guess price to pay to be among the first to see some of this stuff...  :rolleye:

I spoke   "out"   too soon to get sample on the lithium ion version but I believe it is in the works for USA soon...


They changed the shipment (should arrive any day) to the single output version here

Lips, as usual man, great presentation and write up.  I wonder how the smaller Polarion X1 would fair in this comparo.
