I bought this to use fishing from rocks at night. The white light output is more than adequate but the main factor for me was the red light.
The turbo setting is excellent for moving about safely at night on rough uneven rock surfaces, although the High setting is quite adequate for this. The High setting is also good to see what's happening with any hooked fish from 15 to 20 feet above the water.
The waterprrof rating is of obvious benefit. Having used Fenix headtorches for a number of years, I am more than happy with their reliability.
brilliant light .great quality.customer service was first class.well done hill and dale.
Fenix HM65R ShadowMaster 1200 Lumens Rechargeable Headtorch
Fantastic product and the best price on the internet…
I used a £30 Petzl headtorch for the last 5 years on commercial window cleaning jobs out of hours. Good little torch but just not bright enough. Did some research and came across the Fenix HM65R. All the reviews and videos I watched point towards this torch being the one I need.
Firstly the Torch arrived promptly from Hill And Dale and their customer service team were helpful and friendly when I needed to contact them when I was ordering.
The torch itself is top quality and the build quality feels really solid. I've used it a couple of times on jobs and can easily see to the top of buildings from the ground. Havent ran it on full power yet permanently to see how long it lasts but its lasted long enough for our jobs. When the battery is running low it knocks it down a power setting and keeps going.
The red beam is handy and on setting 4 its really powerful.
I pulled over the other night on the way home in the middle of nowhere to test it on full power and was easily seeing 150 to 200 yards away.
Headband is really comfortable but is a little footery to adjust for someone like me who has little patience, so my wife did it.
Overall I would give it top marks and highly recommend the torch and Hill and Dale.
Thank you 10/10
