I bought a Nextorch XL of 780 lumens and the beam is so much wider that it is not that much brighter in the hot spot than my previous 200 lumen torch. I only tested the same Glo Z Nuke that i tested with in the previous test with a 200 lumen torch. I shone the torch on the top and bottom of the wing moving the torch fairly slowly and left the disc in a dark closed room and after 22 minutes it was glowing enough to help in finding the disc once you're in the vicinity to be able to look at the wing from above=probably fairly close not too many dozens of feet away. Not a bright glow by any means.

So i need to adjust my previous conclusions with the surprise of the hot spot being not that much brighter with the almost 4x lumens being diluted a lot by shining them in a much wider beam so getting blinded is not much of a problem. Although losing night vision is always in the cards even with the 200 lumen torch so imagine 780. I had frankly never thought of getting such a long time of minimally usable glow from a disc so not bad at all. I did not try the other discs in the previous test with their shorter glowing time but with this torch they should be easy enough to find :-)
Flat shots need running on the center line of the tee and planting each step on the center line. Anhyzer needs running from rear right to front left with the plant step hitting the ground to the left of the line you're running on. Hyzer is the mirror of that.
