    I am looking at some duty lights. What do you think about these?

    I have none of those.

    I have been carrying the OLight M20S (not the SX) version for a couple of years. Best light I ever had.

    320lumens is high output and I get about four hours on an 18650 battery.

    I did put in a different reflector to give me more throw. Worth the $9 if you need it.

    The M20S puts out more light than the Magchargers we have in the cars. I hardly ever use strobe. For most functions like traffic stops or searching houses, medium mode is bright enough. For searching warehouses or large places or outdoors, I prefer the high mode.

    If the battery dies, I just switch the medium until I can get back to the car for a spare. The holster has space for two spare 18650s (or cr123s in battery holder).

    The light's been rained on, snowed on, rolled onto asphalt, etc.

    I have a TLR-2 that collects dust on my shelf. I never use it.

    The M20SX from the reviews I have seen have mentioned that it has more throw on the M20S, but still has excellent flood.

    The only problem I have with the Foursevens and the Olight is that there is no metal structure around the tail switch like the Klarus.
