i like the lamps started with the lance rather nice for rabbiting
light weight and hardy ,ive now upgraded to the blitz
awkward when climbing but a grand lamp 2 .
only thing i do with them is swap the wiring for my old clulite to stop wire snap.
as ive been out on sevrel occasions with old wiring and had to stop lamping
due to a break in the wire .other than that cant go wrong :+':

nothing mate off an old lamp
they are good as you can swap from red to clear.
with a little flick .
to be honest when i used to use the lamp ,
i never used anything else Very Happy
if it will fit on you can have it .
well i will try dig out the front too
but im sure i have tried before with no luck scratch
canny be far away .

I like the striker, but was thinking about the lance with a stonger bulb, not sure whether that would improve or hinder the lamp though, anyone tried this?

yes i had the lance and put a 50 /70/100 tried them all
now the only problem is less battery time ok on 50 like .
and if you go higher you notice lot more battery usage.
also you have to turn the housing to make it spot
due to the longer bulb length. but saying that the lad i swapped my lance with
the strengh of the lance and bltz dont vary greatly just the blitz
more distance on the spot ,but if you your doing smaller feilds etc climing
the lance i can recomend ,i had great fun with mine :+':

Cheers, I thought that there would be some downside, as i think both the lance and striker have the same bulbs, but different housing.

to be honest mate
they all come with the same 35w bulb i believe
just the bigger housing throws the beam the bit further.
but i will say the lad i swapped the blitz with .
he is as happy with the lamce and dosnt understand why i swapped.
i think what you need to think of is would you need distance beam ,
what size are the feilds you lamp,and if you climb a bit.
now i must say now i have the blitz i dont like the bulkiness.
i would much prefer the small size of the lance nice and light too.
but saying that i had the striker the first i got
but the wire broke so took it back to shop .i found that the best.
but they had no more in stock and ended up with the lance.
if i were to use the lance again.i would upgrade the bulb to 50w
i think its about one turn out on the housing to get the spot correct.
and your getting the battery time too.i think all in all your gaining more power
on the rabbits eyes to help confuse the quarry and thats all :+':
oh and any bulb change get the osram as any other does not have the quality
of bulb or beam strength :+':

if you got the striker gaz which is a very good lamp .
i presume you have the standard bulb which is best in my opinion.
but if you do want to adjust the range of beam .
i would think that you have the reflecter housing tight
and that give you the tightest beam on the lamp .
now if you loosen it a little unscrew as to speek you will get a wider beam
and keep loosening it will go to flood if nessasary .
but if it has the standard bulb and you have the tightest beam that would do for me.

as im using the blitz with a bigger bulb and forever adjusting the beam so quite anoying really.
until i get the standard bulb but that can wait for me while next season now Wink

I got him that lamp as an xmas pressie..
did i get a pressie in return No
how you adjust the beam on em is you unscrew the lamp..as your un twisting the head of the lamp the beam gets wider....
until you totally unscrew it and the head of it comes off..when its on fully tight its at its narrowest beam...

well i started out with the cluson lamp with a red filter with rocky
and i prefered it on the rabbit .
i got the lance and i used an amber filter not really much good.
and iam going to get the red filter for my bltz for next season
it may lower the beam but once the eyes adjust to it
it is very suprising how good it is .not so bright on your own eyes
and makes the rabbits glow like a candle .
and i think you can change it to clear once they running yes ip mentioned that.
i havent tried it but red is definetly a good thing to have in your bag
espeacially if the rabbits a little lamp shy they normally sit to the red Wink
