If you’re anything like most of the staffers here at Bowhunting.Com, you own at least 37 different flashlights. For some reason or another, we hunters can’t have enough lumens in our life.
The good news is that many of the leading flashlight manufacturers are adopting the ANSI standard for measuring flashlight performance. This will mean we’ll actually be able to tell the difference between a flashlight from manufacturer A and B from now on. One standard means better comparison for us!
Below you will read about Browning, and how they plan to light up YOUR world in 2010.
Browning Expands Flashlight Line-up, Adopts ANSI-FL-1 Standards
Morgan, UT-Browning continues to expand its line of high quality feature-filled line of flashlights for the serious sportsman with the addition of the powerful new Hi Power line.
The powerful new Hi Power line of flashlights blend innovative technology with striking appearance and the ability to squeeze every last drop of energy from a pair of AA alkaline batteries.

Length is 5.25″, brightness is 145 lumens and effective distance is 150 meters. The Hi
Power’s leading edge circuitry provides the brightest AA-powered LED flashlights available. Five Hi Power models are offered in Matte Silver, Desert Metallic, Black and Mossy Oak New Break-up.

New Flashlight Standards: Also, beginning in 2010, many top flashlight manufactures have agreed to use the same standards (ANSI-FL-1) for measuring performance, so that consumers can make an apples-to-apples comparison between models. Browning is proud to endorse and participate in these new standards, for portable lighting.
