    I used to have a small strobe, it was about the size of a small hand torch and ran off of 4 x AAA it had a bright yellow plastic body and you could swap the lenses. 1x clear 1x red 1x green.

    lent it to my lad for his DofE and he knackered it as to be expected. only problem is I can't find a replacement and I'd like to have one in my day sack for just incase.

    can anyone help?

  10. Go in any scuba shop........ small, takes one c- cell.

    Took it on a fishing trip to Canada last year, the lads were impressed to see it 3- 4 miles away, made the trip back in the dark a cinch.
