Looking to night fish some this year and looking for a reliable light.

Not saying money isn’t an issue but I want a good pair.

Has anyone had good luck with one they would suggest?

Thanks


Ryan

I have the pro model. It is super bright and with 3 different brightness there's one to fit your needs and the rechargeable batteries last all night and with the red light it works great for keeping the bugs away

I have two of the energizer brand head lights. Three triple a battery’s. Both have the red light setting. One has three light brightness settings and one has three. I like both of them. The red light I use while fishing because I can see but it don’t draw bugs to my face. When I catch one a quick button push and the light turns white for you to see. I think they were in the 25$ range.

My favorite brand is PETZL. Used one for night hunting. I have three others but the PETZL was the better of them.

Harbor freight actually makes a pretty good one for $35. Rechargeable battery and a back up pack you can put batteries into.

I probably have 2 dozen headlamps and hand torches and have them stashed away in different vehicles, boats,houses and tool boxes. There are streamlite, coast,black diamond and Princeton Tec Remix LED ...

I will say a couple things here, as I love how these things can help. I prefer the ones that have the head bands and then the extra strap across the top of the head. They are more comfortable to wear and stay in place. The other issue here is one light doesn't work for everything. Depending on how close you will be doing whatever as to how much light and what type of light you will need.

Your not going to be able to take the best on the market led headlamp with 1100 lumen and use it comfortably up close like under the dash working on wiring, it would be so intense you would be hard pressed to tell what color the wires are.

The very reason I have a small fortune in these and the fact they are so handy. I do have to check the battery compartment on these close, as the batteries can start to sulfate and ruin one of these which can really hurt your fellers lol... Been there done that with a hand torch. Really po me to loose that 150 dollar hand torch because of the batteries destroyed the inside of it, to the point I couldn't get what was left of the batteries out. I am still po'd about that.

Another thing I like is the regular alkaline battery's, not the recharge. I just have a big box of the batteries and it has proven to be more handy for me. It's not always handy in a pinch to have to stop things to recharge. The C123A's, AA's and AAA's are the ones I like. This is a great thread man, hope to see you tack on here what you get...
