Successfully target hogs, coyotes, fox, bobcat, raccoons and varmints with the Wicked Lights W403 IC Hog and Predator Hunting Predator Pursuit Pack
This package includes TWO W403 IC Lights with Full Intensity Control tailcaps, interchangeable Green, Red, and White LED's, 4-position battery charger, and 4-Li-ion batteries, adjustable weapon mount, ergo grip with mount, one intensity control coil cord tail cap, and hard case
The Wicked Lights W-403 IC is the ideal light for night time Predator & Hog hunting and it’s the best value in its class. Here’s why:
The W-403IC basic design features:
*Ambient light (moon phase), optics quality & power setting, LED color, battery state of charge, background foliage, rain, snow, and size and color of target species will all affect range
Manufacturer specifications are subject to change without notice.
Notes Regarding Light Measurement
Why No ANSI Lumen Measurement or listing? The Lumen measurement means very little when it comes to hunting lights. Lumens rating is NOT an indicator of light range or how far a light will shine. A 250 Lumen LED can have significantly longer range as compared to a light with 1,100 Lumen LED. It's all dependent on the light bezel, reflector, and lens design, that's where you achieve beam distance and long range.
So How Do You Measure Light Distance or Range? Candela (Peak Beam Intensity) is the measurement unit and light intensity is measured in candela (cd) at the brightest part of the beam. A lux reading in the brightest portion of the beam is taken at some distance. For example this measurement can be accomplished at 2 meters or 5 meters or a further distance to ensure the beam is fully focused. This is very important on lights using convex lenses since they often don't reach peak intensity until several meters forward of the bezel. With the light on its brightest mode and tightest focus at some time between 30 and 120 seconds of turning the light on. The lux reading is multiplied by the square of the distance in meters to get candela. Regardless of the distance at which the reading is taken, you should end up with the same value in candela, therefore the measurement is independent of distance. A lux reading taken at 1 meter distance is the same as candela (since 1 squared is 1).
What's the FL-1 Standard? The short version is the American National Standards Institute (ANSI) approved a new specification standardizing flashlight performance. The purpose of the standard is to allow consumers to make apples-to-apples comparisons of lights and to eliminate exaggerated light performance by quoting "emitter lumens" or "out-the-front lumens". The test can be performed by the manufacturer or an independent lab.
Is the FL-1 Standard A Good Standard For Hunting Lights? It's good to have industry standards as it relates to measurements, however the formula for calculating Beam Distance is based on a .25 lux standard (considered by some as the same as the amount of ambient light on a clear full moon). We feel the .25 lux calculation used in the formula to express Beam Distance leads to confusion when using the Beam Distance rating to determine if a hunting light will meet your requirements for night hunting. For an example, a light advertising a 217 yard Beam Distance as per the FL-1 calculation in reality will not provide enough illumination to positively identify a target hog or coyote at that distance even with high quality optics. Our experience is your Useful Beam Distance will be closer to 140 yards. Because of this, Wicked Hunting Lights has developed another measurement called Useful Beam Distance.
What is Useful Beam Distance? We have modified the FL-1 Beam Distance formula and replaced the .25 lux calculation with a more stringent .60 lux. We call the resulting calculation Useful Beam Distance. Useful Beam Distance is a more accurate reflection of a lights range in yards and suitability for use as a hunting light. Remember ambient light (moon phase), scope quality & power setting, LED color, battery state of charge, background foliage, humidity, rain, snow, and size and color of target species will all affect the useful beam distance and light hunting range.

This purchase caught me up with technology. Things do change and I thought the lights I had were pretty darn good. These lights were obviously designed and built by night hunters with the knowledge of what works, and what is needed to make things simple and efficient.
I almost bought a much more expensive light because it had the options that I knew would make night hunting easier and more efficient. Glad I didn't, I found these and they offered the same options I was looking for such as a rheostat to control brightness and an adjustable beam focus. The ironic part about it was they were less dollars than the "one" light I was looking at and the Predator Pursuit Kit gives you two lights, five bulbs to choose from and the Ergo Grip to boot. I don't ask how, but they do and for less money.

Other than a slight wiggle in the windage and elevation on the scope mount these are solid lights super bright and worth the price.

Bezel had no wiggle. On off button virtually silent. Great package. Exactly what I was looking for to put on my hog rifle. Definitely bring enough.

I am extremely impressed with these lights as well as the mounts and everything else that comes in this package. I highly suggest going with this!
