There's a new Larry Light out.It has more lumens and a better switch too.The only thing I don't care for is an LED pointer on the end.I don't need to point to things very much. The price could have been cheaper without the pointer I'm sure.It is a bright light though!

Dude, My parts house was laying in wait for me again! So I had to get it, It is now my main go-to flashlight... really bright. The pointer is okay but I wished it had a different button and you didn't have to cycle through the pointer to get to the light.

Thats why I don't like it. I may get one but Im not sold yet.Why don't they ask people's opinion before they make things?

I have the original Larry light and like it a lot.  

 

The v2 Larry design doesn't look as good to me.  A laser pointer? I think an integrated bottle opener would be more useful  :pint1:

but the brightness cannot be compared. Once you use the new version, the other one seems dim. 160 vs 60 lumens. I put up with the minor inconvenience for that difference.

I just wonder why they thought the pointer was necessary in the first place.I almost bought one anyway but I hate giving in so quickly. I am going to contact them and see what they were thinking.

they probably will tell you something like "our market test showed this that and the other." then they will say how they saved you money by not making a separate button for the laser. Typical corporate jibberish.

That's a good price... double clicking the switch has now become second nature but I still press the top of the light as if the switch is located there like the original model.

Well, I gave in.I did email them and they said they put the laser in it because a lot of customers asked for it. I found them on fleabay for $13.99/free shipping.Got it today and although I cant see using the laser, it is a bright light!.They did say that they may come out with a new design that has a seperate switch for the laser.
