I have one and works ok, but if the day is too bright, it won't do much to see well, you have to get really close to the rocks and by then, the fish saw me and hid. If the day is starting to get dark then it works amazingly well. I can't remember for the life of my how many LMs it is.. Maybe 300?

Orca small 300lm attaches to mask strap for re-rigging at night really helps a lot

1000lm orca hand held works well with graduated power beam, start the torch facing away from target on low beam then slowly ease it to the target to avoid shocking the fish away. Too bright is too much.

Spearfishing can be an exhilarating experience, full of mystery and expectation. But as it requires you do it underwater, you’ll need lights - not the lights just for your daily home use, but specialty dive lights. Following I share a list of some best torches for shallow spearfishing.

They're really well priced! For that power I was expecting more expensive, thanks!

l love my big blue dive lights. I use a wide-angle and a narrow-angle on my left hand when I dive at night and it's amazing. I bring the narrow one during the day sometimes for wrecks or caves. I highly recommend their 1200 series.

A little heavy in water but a very bright especially for night dive
