Headlamp question

12 posts in this topic

Its kinda hard to explain but I'll try. The princeton lamp has a steady beam and surrounding light. You can point the beam almost straight out and still have plenty of light shine close to your feet to see to walk. And it is very bright light. I like to say that its similar to those really bright car headlights. So yes it does have a steady beam, but also produces light 170 degrees around it.

Bright light? I buy the brightest LED's made and I'm sure they are the same suppler Princeton and Petzal uses. There nice but if your looking for Bright White light, LED's cant give you that. Think of a flashlight in the fog and thats what you get with an LED. So ya there good and are easy on batteries but still not as bright as a krypton bulb. I buy LED's separately and the uses are endless.

Eh..Surface Tension

I have been kicking around the idea of rigging up some LED lights on my Vex, I like the low amp draw deal.

Have you tried this and where do you get the components. Can you get the goody's at Radio Shack?

Thanks,
Ed

Surface Tension,
I disagree with your flashlight in the fog statement. The Princeton Tec Auroras are much brighter than that.

These babies are bright and white.

The Princeton Tec Aurora LED Headlamp- does it have a focussed enough beam of light to satisfy my needs or is it a more diffuse
beam of light so as to not spook fish, etc?
I'd like a headlamp that shoots a relatively focussed beam of light- will this one make me happy?

    • Great pictures by all that have shared thus far!    Three of my best or my favorites anyway...        
    • I was out and about wetland areas this weekend and saw lots of waterfowl.  Many trumpeter swans, high flying tundra swans, gadwalls, shovelers, a few wood ducks, ring necks, hooded mergansers, , a pair of goldeneyes, and a loon.  I also saw many sandhill cranes.        
    • Volume wise it cuts the same as any othe 8" auger.  Does the Nils make finer chips than others?   I never saw the issue the few times I used mine.  Can you reverse the drill and push the slush down the hole.?
    • Sorry, but Ive had enough of the indepedent/liberturd fence sitter crowd pissing down their righteousness on reality.
    •   Makes no difference what place we are in or that Stall has scored 2 goals in the last 5 games (you call that bunches?).....who would not want to play the Wild in the first round at this point?  This is absolutley shocking to me....they appear to me like a ship without a Captain....7 games left to figure it out.
    •   I go fishing here whenever I need a laugh.  They are always biting.......well the big fat Sucker Fish anyway.
    • i have seen more useless products succeed, but I can't see a practical use for this thing. I do agree with the icing aspect as well as the battery life. U better have a option to free spool this. 
    • Bearsheet4brains to the rescue.    
    •   Then the bad wookies landed, trying to get everyone to believe they were gods and could cure everything with their magical potions, driving a few totally batpoop. Pretty soon there was name calling and bashing, and it just went on and on. Others that were smart left, and the ones still there continued arguing about what kind of people and things were better, with no respect for anyone or anything, since the gods no longer stepped in and stopped it, except to change words that had no meaning anyway. Pretty soon, it was all arguing wookies and people and other creatures, until the land of the forum exploded, throwing all the creatures spinning  out into space, where they formed their own little galaxies, and soon they all  started arguing and preaching and complaining and.....
    • Here is how the math works out on the 100 holes per day.  First off, not every hole gets fished.  Secondly, I am not just drilling holes for myself.  When I am with my kids or an older person or fishing partners who don't understand where the holes need to located on a particular area I might drill all the holes for 4 people to hole hop.  Thirdly, ice thickness plays a roll.  I will drill many more holes in a day on 16" of ice than 30".  I know this may be hard for some to understand but some people really truly actually will drill 100 holes in a day.  I am a very crafty ice fisherman who has adapted to extreme cold weather by using a portable "flip over" shelter and propane heater to keep myself warm and my equipment from icing up.  Yes, even when hole hopping.  That's why they call it a portable.  Haha.
