Fenix has recently release a new flashlight to the market, the Fenix PD With the release of this flashlight, Fenix had a competition offering samples of the PD32 for review.

Pictures Disassembled into head, body and tail: Head and tail each have a spring: Comparison with standard PD32 Due to the additional cooling ribs the Ultimate Edition is about 1.
Apart from these differences, the external designs are pretty much identical. There is a big difference between the beams of both flashlights. The Ultimate Edition has a rather widespread beam compared to the standard PD32 which has a more focused one.
With the tactical tail switch you can turn the light on and off. If you press the switch only half-way down you get the momentary-on function. The flashlight remembers the last active mode and uses this one the next time it is turned on. If the mode switch is pressed and held for 1 second the light will activate its Strobe mode. When in Strobe mode the light switches between a fast and a slow strobe every 2 seconds.
If the mode switch is pressed and held for 3 seconds you get into SOS mode.

In combination with the included diffuser this might have been a nice feature, though. As for the diffuser: on Low, Mid and High mode the diffuser can be pretty useful to get some ambient light i. In my opinion the brightness levels are picked very well.
Low and Mid are suitable for usage in small rooms and for reading. High will probably be my standard setting. Turbo and especially Burst are just awesome. I got mine for 65 EUR which I think is a reasonable price for such a nice and powerful piece of craftsmanship. I would definitely recommend this flashlight, but if you think about buying it, keep in mind that the LED is neutral white, the beam is rather widespread and that the flashlight is a little bit bigger than previous models.

Mode for signaling for help. Like its predecessor, the PDG3 is operated using a pair of tactical switches, including a tail switch to momentarily or fully activate the flashlight and a side switch to cycle through the different outputs, both constant brightness and tactical. Needless to say, the newest edition of the PD32 makes a substantial jump in performance.
