This economy travel tying light is cordless, lightweight and works anywhere. The battery powered 9-LED flashlight (included) provides long battery life. Clamps to any 3/8 inch vise stem and is easily adjustable to direct light exactly where you need it. Requires three AAA batteries (not included). [NOTE FROM JS: The light on this arm is not as bright as some would like. We offer an upgraded LED Light that fits this arm or you can purchase our Premium Light which includes the arm sold here plus the upgraded light.]

Given the previous reviews I had low expectations for this light. Sadly, not even they were met. The output of the light is extremely poor and very blue. Colors are washed out. If you're tying in the dark (say while camping), this light is good, but if you're looking for a boost in conditions where there's not sufficient ambient light (e.g. you're tying at an event and need a work light), it doesn't cut it. Now here's the good news: you can clamp any LED tactical light you might have into the holder. I have a Fenix light I use for camping and it fits right in and provides plenty of light. $20 for a real good clamp? That might be worth it.
The most important thing was left out of the description---- How many lumens does the light put out?
<i>J. Stockard comments: We checked with the distributor (Hareline) and, while they couldn't get this info, they said they've sold over 500 in the past 3 months and received not one complaint about brightness.</i>
Got this on sale, although not the brightest, got it to supplement headlamp in case I found myself on the tailgate or picnic table in the dark trying to tie some bugs. I'll see how long it lasts, otherwise packs up nicely in my kit.
