After we got our hands on the 1500 lumen Dual-Fuel M600 Scoutlight, we knew that a superpowered Surefire Fury couldn't be too far behind. We first got hands-on at SHOT Show, but now the Fury DF is officially shipping to dealers.

To put the light level in perspective, the original Fury, the P2X, ate from (2) CR123 batteries and had a max output of one-third of the the Fury DF. Later P2X models would get a 20% bump to 600 lumens. The larger Fury P3X was fueled with (3) CR123 batteries and would give you 1,000 lumens.

Like the M600DF, the Fury DF feeds from either (1) rechargeable 18650 battery or (2) CR123 batteries. Because of the power density of the 18650, you'll have 1,500 lumens with a runtime of 90 minutes with one. However, even with CR123 batteries you'll max out at 1,200 lumens for 75 minutes.

The Fury DF features an anti-roll bezel which is quite effective without being obtrusive.

A crenelated bezel makes it easy to tell if you've inadvertently left the light when upright–and we wouldn't want to get smacked in the face with it either.

The example we have is the Tactical model, which means it only rolls on high–we anticipate a dual-output version as well. The pushy/click tailcap allows for both momentary and constant-on.

The deep reflector means you'll get a lot of throw, but there is still ample spill; makes for a good general purpose do-all flashlight. Car. Nightstand. Woods. Duty. You get the idea. Like the generations before it, the Fury DF is probably going to be a little bit too large for most to comfortably pocket carry it.

Generally we'd say if you want a Surefire WML, stick with the Scout-series. For those that are interesting in mounting a Fury, this one can also be used in that role, albeit with a few caveats. While previous Fury models were compatible with the XM-series of tailcaps, allowing for the use of tape switches, the same cannot be done with the Fury DF–the tailcap threading got larger to accommodate for the larger 18650 battery. However, with the tailcap removed, the Fury DF can be slipped into a standard 6P-sized mount.

The slightly larger diameter means the Thyrm Switchback 2.0 is a scootch too small to fit. We're going to try our hand with a heat gun.

Once all of the dealer shipments go out, these will be available on Until that time, check your shelves locally. The MSRP of the Surefire Fury DF is $199.
