The introduction of PEAK's portable fly tying light came about because we were unhappy with the lighting solutions available. Halogen lights became too hot, and needed a cooling off period before they could be put away. Worse yet, some could even result in burns if touched. Fluorescent sources were frequently not bright enough, produced off color light spectrums, were bulky and the tubes are fragile. PEAK's PTL LED light source runs cool and provides a wide angle of light to illuminate your entire tying area with minimal power consumption. Even after a full day of tying, the housing remains cool to the touch. No need to worry about burning your hand if you accidentally touch your light. You also won't feel the heat build up in your tying area that you may from some light sources so tying will be safer and more comfortable. The lamp provides a full spectrum white light that won't skew the color properties of the material you're working with. The bracket mounts to any PEAK vise stem, PEAK's Accessory Shaft or other 3/8" diameter vise stem and incorporates an integral tool holder. A 20 inch flexible gooseneck allows optimal positioning of the light source. The lightweight construction allows PEAK's light to be easily transported. Wall transformer provided supplies 500 mA at 9VDC and is rated for 100 - 240 VAC at 47 - 63 Hz input.
