Musings on a new range - EagleTac

Posted on June 04, 2014

In the last week or so I’ve been familiarising myself with the ‘new(ish)-to-Taclight’ EagleTac range of torches, to write the blurb for the descriptions and to be able to talk to customers about them, (and playing with torches is quite good as jobs go), and I have to say, I’ve been very impressed with this range.

Coming new to EagleTac I really didn’t know what to expect, I knew they were cheaper than some of the big players we carry; Olight, Klarus, Fenix etc, and with that in mind perhaps I was expecting cheaper quality, fewer features or poorer output?

I’m pleased to report that this wasn’t the case. In fact, the build quality, durability, performance and features of these torches are easily comparable to the bigger name versions.  How do I know?  Because while painstakingly researching and trying out each torch in the EagleTac series, I found myself nipping through to the stock room to find its bigger named counterpart to compare output, modes, features, weight, size and balance and each time I found the EagleTac illuminator holding its own and sometimes, a little better!

There are, of course, areas that I think EagleTac could improve, but this is primarily on accessories. For Instance the MX25L2 TURBO is a beast of a torch and easily comparable with Olight’s SR95 Intimidator Searchlight in terms of features and output BUT, you do get a nice flight case with the Intimidator and it comes with a shoulder strap; a must for me to carry such a weighty torch for any length of time – but then I’m a bit of a wuss.

That said, EagleTac have some great little accessories included such as the rubber tail-stand boot to enable you to tail stand a tail-switched torch – great idea!

Of course, I’m paid to wax lyrical about the illuminators we sell but you don’t have to take my word for it (and frankly, why would you?), the fantastic people at CandlePowerForums have some great reviews and comparisons of Eagletac torches and I’m clearly not alone in getting excited about them!
