Hello there

I was wondering if anyone could help me on a torch im getting for CQB. Is 900 lumens okay?
If it isnt what would be the maximum brightness?

any advice is appreciated

with 900 lumens, you will have no probelms attatching it to the sky in place of the sun.

Tbh, It is probably far too bright, you are going to dazzle people beyond what is neccessry in airsoft and potentially damage their eyes

stick to below 500 as an absolute max

Send the doctors home, I'll be doing the operating around here.

I use 300ish and it is perfectly fine. The trick is having a torch that can regulate the focus of the light. Comes in handy when "zooming in" the light for long range, or "zooming out" to use in a room, or camp situation.
