supporting hand Intense light?

I wish I'd paid more attention when I saw the TV ad for this, but has anyone heard of this?

An extremely Intense blight light that wraps around a supporting (or free) hand that switches on and off again (when needed) and blinds and intruder?

It was on a secure strap that was positioned on the "free Hand" in a way that would not hinder that hand from being a supporting hand (with usual 2 hand grip)....or could be held away from the body, if wanted to not give an armed intruder your body or firearm location.

It could be turned off and on with at "free hand" and was said to be blindingly intense to give you a shooting opportunity, if the situation was such.

Has ANYONE heard of that?
And WHO makes it?.....WHERE I can buy it online, Please?

I actually tested out that flashlight at a training seminar. The instructor apparently knew the inventor, or something like that, so had one on hand. It seemed to work well in my hands while holding a pistol. Neat little gizmo until he told me the price. In my opinion a good old metal streamlight works just fine and can be used as a weapon if need be.

Do you remember the name of the maker?

I could fabricate such a light with velcro strips on my free hand., but the on/off switch might be a problem when 2 hand holding my pistol in a supporting griip......WHAT it is the VERY MOST Intense blinding LED light out there, Please?

I don't remember the make, but it looks just like the one pictured. I remember the guy showing me some cool things about it, but not cool enough to justify the price.

Thanks guys,
From what AK103K posted....it looks like the Tomahawk ST is what it was.

thanks.....strobing 120 lumens? Yeah!!
That would disorient someone momentarily !

Does anyone own a strobing intense hand light Tomahawk ST to tell me if these lumens and features work?

Flashlights

If anyone is interested in finding out more about flashlights check out http://www.candlepowerforums.com/vb/ there's a whole other world out there besides the surefires and such.

I personally use a Fenix P3D P100. The 210 Lumens strobe is very harsh on the eyes.

Damn,

I guess I'm getting "Lumens envy"!

I just noticed the Fenix Digital P3D Black Premium Q5 with 215 for the same price.
(my ordered Fenix P3D Premium 100 Rebel is "only" listed as 200 lumens in strobe...what's up?)

What's the reason?(difference?)...do you know, sylathnie
