    Hey guys. I did a search and didn't see anybody post on this yet (my apologies if there was a post somewhere already). Whelen's new surface max is basically using the existing "hour glass" optic (ie feniex wide-lux, SOS fusion, Weldon diamondback) and stamped the W on it.

    I know it's just video, but I gotta say that I'm not impressed. Aside from copying the ghost, I think they've done a pretty good job of innovating in the past, and I was very impressed with one of their last major product line additions, the M-series, which I think is the brightest line out there. If they really wanted something with a "wow," they should've looked at the off-axis that tec-niq lights have and tried to work on an optic like that IMO. Honestly, I'm sure they'll be way pricier than the feniex equivalent, so I'd honestly go with the wide-lux if I wanted to use that type of optic
