    Hotshot used to be my only light when I adapted its mounting to PBSF bracket and I kept PBSF as a backup. However, I realized that PBSF is not really good enough for daylight, didn't like its AAAs &...

    I have a Hotshot too. But it's nice to have two tail lights in case one fails. Also, Serfas has a large CPSC reflector & is a perfect rack light which Hotshot is not.

    Got Serfas 9-Led Cross Pattern couple of weeks ago & it's an excellent rack light. Easily as bright as the original Hotshot with a much wider beam so it's quite visible in the daytime. The box says...

    Turbo Flash is great for the nighttime but not good enough for the day. I have regular Superflashes & use them as back up lights. One can only squeeze so much from the meager AAA alkalines. AAs are a...

    You're right. Sorry. Mixed it up with Serfas 80. Hotshot has a much better old style mount including one for the rack unlike the silicon crap the Axiom & Serfas have.

    Yes, Axiom 60 & 80 from Performancebike, couple of Serfas & Blackburn Flare R. Perhaps some others. However, the it looks like the Hotshot got a better (i.e. longer lasting) battery. And it's on the...
