Hello Everyone, this is Marty with a review of powerful “Ballista 3.0” search flashlight made by Russian company “Yarkiy Luch” (“Bright Beam”) Such flashlight might prove useful on any night airsoft game. The flashlight is packed into pretty cardboard box which is a standard for “Yarkiy Luch” products. Let’s unbox and check the content. The package includes: the flashlight itself, 2 batteries, charger kit for 2 batteries, spare rubber washers and button, belt holster. The interesting feature of this product is a partial modularity. There are 2 batteries for a full length provided but you can also use shortened version of flashlight for 1 battery only. You need to unwind one section of battery slot for this. You can optionally buy additional section and use the flashlight with 3 batteries to increase usage time. It can also be used as a baton thanks to aviation-grade aluminum with type III anodizing. The product is IP68 waterproof up to 2 m depth. The LED is XP-L high intensity with neutral, sunlight-like hue. This feature is a benefit during dull weather. The maximum intensity is 1200 lumens which provides effective light distance between 400-700 meters based on weather. There are rear and side buttons. Rear one is on/off switch with manual semi-switch mode for signaling. Side button allows mode switching. There are three intensity modes available: 55 lumens; 480 lumens, and 1200 lumens which is a maximum. Note that maximum intensity lasts for 4 minutes only to prevent overheating. After 4 minutes it is defaulted at 800 lumens which is a standard maximum intensity. You can also turn the strobe mode on by holding side button. To turn this mode off just press once. The side button is also a battery charge indicator. Until it is green the charge is at max. When it turns red and even starts blinking – the charge is depleted. The flashlight can ‘memorize’ intensity mode you use. Once the intensity mode is chosen – you can switch the light on and off, the mode still remains. You can also turn it on at max intensity irrelevant of last mode used – just hold both buttons when turning the light on. Let’s talk a bit about efficient use of this device during night airsoft games. This flashlight is not cheap – around 9000 RUB at the moment. Please keep in mind this is probably not personal item and is more often used by whole team or squad. It is used by dedicated player who doesn’t hold a weapon. For instance my buddy Rusty used that last year on the last game of a season. He is a sniper during the day, but at night he cannot snipe so he was operating the flashlight. He used to tag-light the targets for other team members to engage. – Contact alight! – Blue! Take him out! Such combination is most often used in airsoft – fire teams together with a flashlight operator whether it’s attack or defense. Flashlight is sometimes attached to a monopod or long stick and can be elevated above the cover keeping the operator safe from enemy fire. Please like my video as usual and check the description – you can find the link to this flashlight down there as well as other useful links. Don’t be afraid of the dark!
