When I got the request from HEADSPIN to field-test their new docking lighting system, I had just finished debating the pros and cons of headlamps with my hunting partner at camp. We were in the thick of bugling bulls in a Colorado elk archery season and had been in a cold camp near a herd we couldn’t quite pin down on and off for two weeks.
Of course, our headlamp debate was around options that are borderline standard on most headlamps these days. Do you use the red light function? Do you even know how to get to all the options in your headlamps one-button “menu”? Is yours bright enough? Too bright?
The HEADSPIN is an entirely different animal from what I saw in testing it out over a three-day span. Here are my takeaways from a backcountry archery hunter’s perspective.
