What torch would people recommend and if any one has a good night vision goggles what brand would you recommend also and I’ve heard the red beam light rabbits can’t see it ass much, is this true?

I've tried all the available lamps, and I still can't get a result..

Something is wrong,...got to be....🤔

Just go old school and use a cibie super oscar mounted on a bit of broom handle, complete with 18 amp motor bike battery!  lol

 

Well remember them days, best one I ever made was with a spotlight off a Hymac digger. Removed the frosted glass and fitted clear. Good beam for then. Also remember having a massive head fit when the battery acid ate my Barbour Solway Zipper , that I had to save for !! Now use a hand held Night Saber. Ideal for a couple or more hours and a brilliant beam, from flood to tiny pencil spot.

Clulite also good little lamp for a couple of hours

I got a lightforce. But when your just mooching and looking over a few gates. It’s a lot less hassle then having a corded lamp

I use a Striker 170, got filters but don't use them cos they're a faff to get on and off, despite modifications lol, as above, it's all about the dog and fieldcraft.

Got a little led red/white led (from D.Lloyd off here) that use for an occasional mooch but the red is better for me (I'm colour blind) cos I can't spot anything with the white 🤦‍♀️ have no idea whether the dog can tbh but if I can't see them it's pointless 

Cheers, D.

240 Blitz is the best lamp I've used.

Cheers.

I’ve a 240 and a 170 , if I put a 100 watt bulb in 170 it’s as good as 240

Blue Eyes

Black Eyes and

Clear Eyes

All great lamps back in the day. They also did a smaller version that was real handy in some specks. Tough as old boots too. 👍

Who remembers the 1000,000 cp lamp from Argos with the red on/off button on top,with the unscrew handle with a tripod inside. Like most people I rewired mine up to a different switch.

Think they sold for about £20,who remembers their actual name and does anyone still have one.I'm sure someone put a picture of one on here not long ago.

I seen one on a market stall back about 3 years ago for £10,wish I picked it up now,even came with original box.
