Speaking of flashlights (we were in another thread), I found this while perusing flashlight info. The Tac-Fire Flashlight is the ultimate in flashlights from Foxfury. A 1,000 Lumen LED Flashlight for the professional and serious recreational user. And priced at a modest $999.99. ;D
I'm joking around a bit, since the price would be out of range of the average caver. But with a distance of 600 feet this light should shine (at least in theory) to the bottom of Fantastic Pit (Ellison's Cave).
* Candle Power = 12,560 * Lumens = 1,000 * Field of Vision = 12° - 18° available * Photopic Lighting = Near * Distance Vision = 600 ft (183 m) * Peripheral Vision = N/A
* Water Resistance = Yes * Fire Resistance = Yes * Impact Resistance = Yes
Battery * Size / Type = 15 CR123 * Battery Life = 1 to 3 hours (varies by mode)

Can you cut through solid rock with such a powerful beam of light? It sounds like a great light for occasional long range spot beam needs but for an overall cavers light I would get something a little less powerful and short lived on batteries!
Still it would be useful in certain cases....
