Yet another light thread…
I’m sorry, I know there have been a few of these threads recently. I have read them and plenty of others online.
I’m new to night riding so would really appreciate some input on the 2 lights I’m choosing between.
Magicshine MJ-872 1600 Lumen
Smudge’s XML Light 1000 Lumen
Both look great but I am new to night riding and I can only afford one light right now.
The MJ-872 seems to have a wider beam and the XML narrower but further reaching.
There are other differences such as price (£20), digital battery with the MJ-872 but I am most interested in which light would be the best choice for a main light.
Also if you were only using one light would you go for helmet or on the bars mounting?
What do you guys reckon?Posted 6 years agogrtdkadSubscriber
… I hear what you guys are saying about the Dx lights however it can be a false economy. Buy good lights, benefit from quality and performance. Then, after 18/24 months flog them on and benefit from high residuals.
I’ve been doing this for 6/7 years and each light has ended up costing me (net) £30-£50 for a year or twos use. A couple of times I managed to sell on at a profit – 🙂Posted 6 years agoNorthwindSubscriber
MJ872 on the helmet for me, no need for a bar light with that (though I still have one, in case of failure/damage). This’d definately be my recommendation to anyone.
(anyone using one of these on the bars with a seperate head light, give it a crack on the head, I was amazed how well it works)
I’ve not actually seen the smudge light in action, but I didn’t like either of my XML lights much, just a bad beam pattern- tons of light thrown at too small an area.Posted 6 years ago
