Thread: Keep Fit foxing advice?

    Keep Fit foxing advice?

    Hi, looking for advice on a long life foxing battery pack that is light and long lasting and for a handheld lamp to match? I was thinking of a Lightforce 140 but i bet there is a modern improvement. And of course where to buy?
    Thanks.

    The Nightmaster XSearcher is more than a match for a LF170, IMO. The beam can be tightened down more for shooting if need be, and rifle mounted too. Different colours via different LEDs you just drop in and out - and it weighs very little indeed and is easier to handle. With good 18650 batteries, it will last all evening and beyond.

    I've got the NM800 (the little brother) and its brilliant for shooting, way better than my ancient Deben with its motorcycle spare battery!!

    there was a lad on the farm next to me a few weeks back and on foot he runs the following.

    x searcher on the rifle, and the nm800 in his hand, the x was a red pill and the nm was white pill.

    when asked how long he is out on foot he said until the cows come home,

    wish i had good enough knees to be able to do it

    Crelant 7G5CS fitted with Crelant 66mm collimator head. Cree XM-L2 U2 led. Most powerful white led in its class.

    as built by ian sirrel of irlightbuilds...

    ive had one for a year runs on 2x 1850 batteries and throws a beam like you would not believe

    heres link to his facebook page and pics of it....78 ish all in incl postage I think.....I was in a l200 with lightforce 170 thru roof and this as powerful as that !
    https://www.facebook.com/Ir.light.builds?fref=ts

    if you don't do facebook heres his email for queries
    ir.light.builds@gmail.com

    a friend of mine in Aberdeen who builds his own NV set ups has a light meter & can measure output of IR also and these creelants blows the nightmaster out the water in terms of performance

    heres Ian's pic from facebook sight of torch


    no wires, external battery packs etc.....
    these new generation of LED torches are amazing performance at night

    He does smaller T20 etc , different colour pills etc

    You can buy a mount from ant supplies that rings round yer scope then a quick release height & wind adjustable

    Then you can you use big torch above as a spotter / thrower
    Then smaller scope mounted for the shot ... But still change from white to red or green or IR for a night vision device .

    Way I went & never looked back
