Thrower flashlights have a smooth reflector and steeper head angle to produce a long throwing tight beam with little spill. These lights are better suited for hunters, search & rescue, or anyone who prefers distance over a wide flood beam. Lumen for Lumen, these lights always look brighter than flood lights due their impressive hot spots. They will still light up a room based on reflective bounce as opposed to spreading out the beam, but not as efficiently. These lights are recommended for outdoor, long distance use.
