Cap Light?

I know everyone has opinion on lights, my question is of the 2 listed....I would like to hear pros and cons from folks that have used these lights, I am going to buy one of the 2 as my next light. I have carried a big dog for years, been very dependable, lacking a little on brightness!

1. Bright eyes Fuzion
2. Superior Hellcat Maxx

HELL CAT PRO

I HAVE THE HELL CAT PRO AND CAN'T IMAGINE NEEDING MORE LIGHT. MINE IS SET UP WITH TWO WHITE WALK LIGHTS AND TWO AMBERS. I REQUESTED IT BE SET UP THAT WAY. THE WALK LIGHTS ARE VERY BRIGHT, IN FACT EXCEPT ON VERY TALL TREES THEY ARE ABOUT ALL I USE. IF NEEDED THE MAIN BEAM WILL LIGHT UP THE TOPS OF THE TALLEST TREES. VERY WELL MADE LIGHT AND I AM WELL PLEASED. CAN'T SPEAK FOR THE BRIGHT EYES.

Lights

Letís hear about sunspot extreme as well. I may be leaning towards bright eyes, lots of switches and levels....curious if that causes any concerns for failures? Anyone had any problem with durable with bright eyes cap light?

I have the hellcat maxx and i cant imagine anything being brighter. I can shine most trees with the walking light on high this time of year. The natural color beam is nice as well on the spot

Lights

How much usable light do you really need I'm talking about a good walk light with red or amber color and a bright main beam most lights have more than enough usable light I want the walk light to shine down in front of me and around me most new walklights will light up an entire blacktop road. How much usable light do you really need

Fusion

I have the Fusion and it went dead on me last night after 3 straight nights without a charge. I love everything about this light. But what is better than the light is the people at Bright eyes. My son dropped his $300 light getting in the truck last year and I accidentally ran over it. I mean smashed it! The battery and the head light. Called bright eyes and was gonna buy a new one and they told me to send it in and they would look at it. Sent it in and got it back 3 weeks later like a brand new light with a $50.00 invoice. You will not go wrong with bright eyes!

In my opinion is do a side by side comparison of of both lights. The features like colors, brightest, weight, burn time, operating features ( controls) , price and warranty. Compare all them to see what suits your needs the best. Also look at the company. Like advertising see what is out there and how it is advertised. I always say a good product advertises itself. I use and highly recommend superior lites. Great customer service usa product and has been around for a really long time, made in the USA with great parts.. No special sales gimmicks with Superior Hunting Lites.

I've had the Sunspot for about 2 yrs now. It is built well haven't had a single problem with the light it's self. The charger has given me fits from the start. Other than that i'm ok with it. I bought the sunspot because it was one of the few with the dial on the head. The head is small and the helmet is balanced on my head. There is some real junk out there on the market but this light is built right.

I have a Sunspot and absolutely love it. Canít beat the lifetime warranty. I will say most all the light options these days are good. If you call and order directly from Sunspot you talk to the owner.

I love my Brighteyes lights. I have owned 4 of them through the years. They have always took care of any problems I have had with my lights which have been very few. Great people to deal with. You want be disappointed .
