Hi All,
I have just purchased an 'Intova' LED backup torch from Mick at Divers Service. I had been looking for a good LED backup, and had my eye on a TUSA which Mick had a couple of himself. Like most LED's, the TUSA had a rather wide beam which put me off. He suggested the Intova narrow beam, which he got in for me to have a look at. First picture is the two torches side by side, with new batteries in each. Second pic is the Intova. I had it outside last night, and am sriously impressed with it's above water performance. Great spot beam, good punch, nice ally machined finish, double O ring and a nice clip attachment point on the bottom.
I am taking this away with me, so can give a report when I get back, but I think it will excell in our caves.
Specs: CREE LED, 2 x CR123 batteries, 5 hour burn time, 120m depth rating and about $110.

JD

PS: It will be interesting to compare with Craigs new torch, which I believe cost him 3x what the Intova costs......

Good above water performance should be of importance to you, considering the amount of diving you do. Grin Grin Grin Grin

Hey Rick, it's me, not Harvey.
I would love to do more diving, but working Saturdays limits me a bit. Nice for you guys who have 2 days off a week, but working 6 days a week certainly limits the opportunuity to get down the mount. In saying that, 2 weeks of diving coming up! Yee HA!

Do you guys have Rat Jr backups? They are supposed to be the dogs bollocks, and I wouldn't mind comparing the two.

Not really. The idea is to have a fixed light on my housing to assist illuminating the subject particularly macro stuff. It'd probably also be useful in caves.

Yours would be too narrow and would create a hotspot likely visible in the photo. Mine comes with a couple of screw-in diffusers to spread the beam & give a more even light.
