Designed to help free up your hands for other tasks, the T-MAX Pro allows the user to access its three switches with the use of just one thumb. It comes with a finger loop that keeps the light in place. There is a momentary-on switch that gives you quick access to 700 lumens of searing bright light. Two smaller switches allow you to turn on and cycle through its colored light options (white, red, blue, green) in varying brightness levels. The T-MAX Pro also includes options for a complete power lock out, strobe, and multicolor safety beacon modes.

Pros: Extremely bright, tied with the LED Lenser for offering the most colored lights (four)

Cons: Can feel awkward to hold, overly complicated operation, the $280 price tag (ouch!)
