Man - I am tempted, but the 2011 version is so much better that I might have gear buyer remorse.

More durable hinges, additional LED for low light and a max of 75 lumens.

But that price on the current version is killer.

I bought 2 from SAC a while back when they had them for $19.99 each. They're fantastic. I have a Petzl XP2 also which I love, but the deal on the old model SPOTs are awesome.

The 2011s might be a fantastic light, but the old models are some of the best around for most users. You might get a 30% better model in 2011 but you'll be paying 200% more for it.

It was a great purchase for me, and I'd recommend it to anybody.

I picked up the old model Spot at a REI garage sale for 9.83 about a year ago. Its a much better light than the Gizmo it replaced. I'm liking the red leds on the newer model so maybe someone will return one this next spring for me to pickup at a great price and upgrade again.

Got rid of the old Spot for the new one on 11/10/2010 12:26:37 MST Print View

And couldn't be happier. Dimmer is a MUST HAVE, as is the lock-out feature and the red LEDs. For $40, its the best light under $60 on the market, IMO

Check the instructions for the lockout mode. You may have to hold the switch down for several seconds to "unlock" it.

Assuming the batteries are fresh. It is typical for lighting manufacturers to have regular sales as the batteries in the factory pack expire.
