5.0 out of 5 stars Professional Perspective, January 16, 2012

This review is from: Fenix PD32 Compact 315 Lumen LED Flashlight (Sports)
The Fenix PD30 has been my main tac-light for over 4 years, after frequently bringing it home for use I figured I'd pick up the new model Fenix PD32. The PD30 has been EXCELLENT for over 4 years of daily use with highest/turbo setting, still works as the day I started using it. The PD32 is definately a clear upgrade, the checkered grip with grooves for added grip level is fantastic, mode memory is a much wanted addition; whatever mode/brightness setting you have it on when you turn it off will remain when turned back on. The side mounted mode-switch is excellent and IS EASY TO OPERATE 1 HANDED. I've seen some Police Academy Instructor do a review online and reccomend AGAINST Fenix for having side mounted mode switches due to the requirement for full 1 handed operation... assuming you have all your fingers, it's quite easily and naturally done. My current use for a tac-light is in law enforcement, I'm a former Military Instructor for Marksmanship & MOUT/CQC Tactics with 4 Infantry Combat tours in Afghanistan & Iraq. I LIKE and WANT to buy AMERICAN, I buy alot of Irwin and other made in U.S.A. hand tools, drive a Corvette and a Dodge truck, unfortunately when it comes to tac-lights there's not many choices.. Pelican and Mag cannot compete with Fenix. Surefire of course can but you'll pay not twice but literally 3-4x as much for a Surefire with absolutely ZERO design, performance, reliability, quality or material advantage over a Fenix. Surefire is the leader in Military and Police contracts when it comes to tac-lights, they make the training videos, they have the exposure. On active duty for my M4 I had been issued a Surefire G2, a pelican and then a 2nd Surefire Combat light that I remember ran about 350$ -even my PD30 made it look weak let alone the PD32. For Tactical use and general High Performance/High Quality Tac-Lights I Highly Recccomend Fenix Products.

Olight m20s Warrior is similar with its side button at the tailcap end where it should be if the light is held properly. Settings, including memory are controlled from the side switch with the light on and with it off, you have access to the strobe at full brightness. All of these features are one-handed accessible.

Unless your Corvette and Dodge are over 10 years old you are not driven an all American made car.

Even in the 80's a friend pulled the horn button cover off of his All American Dodge truck and the wheel was stamped "Made in Canada".
