VASTFIRE Green Hunting Flashlight for Nighttime Wild Hog and Predator Hunting -Texas Tested Review {Video}

Over the past several years, I have owned several CREE LED hunting flashlights and have had some great hunting experiences with them. The CREE LED technology has certainly put affordable flashlights in our hands here in the great USA and I carry hunting lights with me on every big game hunt I go on these days as you never know what opportunities might pop up on a whim to hunt the night.

VASTFIRE contacted me recently and asked me to review one of their flashlights and I was pleasantly surprised when I received it in the mail from the Amazon.com warehouse.

The claim is that this fixed-beam flashlight can reach out to 350 yards and the LED is 1,000 lumens. In most of my nighttime hunting adventures, I don’t shoot near that far but it is nice to have a bright beam that can reach that distance. The body of the flashlight is a common style seen in many lights but I always say it is what is inside that counts the most in my book. Having internal components that fail when you need your gear the most is one of the most frustrating thing that can happen in our outdoor pursuits. With a CREE LED that has a 50,000 hour lifespan, this light seems reliable and the aircraft aluminum body is as tough as nails.

 

This particular kit comes with a nice hard case for storage, two mounts, two 18650 batteries with a dual charger, a regular flashlight end cap and an end cap with a remote switch that can be used as a pressure switch or a constant on/off button. All of that together is a great value for the money and I am a budget hunter so that makes a lot of sense.

Now sure there are other lights on the market that are brighter and have variable zoom but for a light and accessory kit with all of those goodies that is less than $40, that is a good deal in my book.

I took the “Pepsi Challenge” with this light and compared it to a brand of flashlight in the same style of body with a CREE LED I repped for many years as that company’s spokesperson and front man before they closed their doors earlier this year. Not only was the VASTFIRE brighter, the other brand cost nearly three times as much as the VASTFIRE did! Now that catches my attention. For something to be a better overall product AND be light on the wallet… well here, take my money!

There are three possible ways to mount this light to a gun with the mounts that come in this kit. You can use the adjustable scope mount, barrel mount with scope ring holding the flashlight or directly to any picatinny or weaver rail with the scope ring holding the flashlight. The latter of these three is my choice as I have picatinny rails or scope/rail  mounts on all of my guns and scopes that I use for hog and predator hunting.  Any of these mounts can be changed around in seconds and there is a lot of versatility in how you can mount a light to your gun.

Overall, in my opinion at least, I think this is one of the best flashlights for the money. If you are looking for interchangeable LEDs and zoomable function, this may not be your choice, but if you are a value minded hunter looking for the best bang for your buck, this flashlight kit might be one of the best deals I have come across. Check out this flashlight kit for yourself at Amazon.com.

On this episode, Dustin sits down with Capt. James Stegall of Port Lions Lodge Kodiak Island, Alaska.
The two talk about Alaska as a fishing and hunting destination of a lifetime for a wide variety of fish and game species.

capt-james-400x533.jpg

Captain James grew up fishing and hunting in Texas with his dad and brother. He moved to Alaska in 1981 where he began fishing the Kenai Peninsula both in the rivers and the salt water. In 1995 James and Patti purchased their first salt water vessel and within a few years were running a very busy charter business out of Seward Alaska. James and Patti also owned an X-ray sales and service business in Anchorage. James and Patti found the Port Lions Lodge was for sale when they were there looking at the Armstrong Catamaran “Lara Beth” and within about six months they sold their X-ray business and their Seward Charter business and were the new owners of Port Lions Lodge. James holds a US Coast Guard Master of 100 Tons license, serves on the Alaska Charter Association Board of Directors, and spends his non fishing and hunting time fighting the allocation battle for halibut. James is also a transporter licensed under the Alaska Big Game Board as well as an Assistant Hunting Guide.
