New head torch

Whilst loving my Petzl Tikka XP headtorch having run many miles with it I have found it wanting on woodland, rooted paths as the beam does not seem to penetrate well especially when the batteries are going low.

Whilst out on the South Downs Way last weekend I noted a few runners were using a much more powerful set of head torches so with a little internet research [read as Facebook Ultrarunning Community page] I went for the LED Lenser H7

I never knew that Ebay bidding was so stressful but I have got myself a real bargain finding that I was the only bidder chucked in the lowest rate of £21.99 with 1 hour and 37 minutes left. These babies can range from £40-60. To my surprise I won the bid so with postage and packaging I bought it for the princely sum of £26.98.....bargain.

What's more, the Delightful Mrs S was totally oblivious as no credit cards appeared in my hand at any time as it was all done by PayPal :-D
