March 2019 reviews FYRLYT HELLFYR.

HELLFYR 12000. The ultimate professional 12V 240mm - 9 inch remote mounted SPOTLIGHT/SEARCHLIGHT


HELLFYR has set a new benchmark in its class. A build quality and tactile precision normally associated with a premium riflescope it has redefined the performance benchmark in its market sector.  


Beautifully considered design, CNC metal construction that is a quantum leap in quality above any plastic light. Other metal type lights are comparably primitive with archaic lens clips, screws, pop rivets or nuts and bolts. Make no mistake the HELLFYR 12000 is next level.

NOTE: HELLFYR is not designed as a driving light as in most cases the FYRLYT 5000 or 9000 NEMESIS will provide a better solution.

2019 has seen HELLFYR earn its place among professionals as the new light of choice. Even those initially skeptical, once having seen FYRLYT in use have become HELLFYR's greatest advocates.

Customer feedback - Philip * 10/8/19

I purchased a HELLFYR 12000 about 6 months ago, I wish it was 6 years ago! The only proven down side is power consumption and that is manageable.


Pros include: 
Eye shine from all angles (halogen over LED or HID).
Better contrast for picking up body.
Beam elongated for wider searching.
More usable light through an optic (my range finder can be used beyond 600m under this light, with other lights 200 was a push)


I would advise anyone spotlighting to spend the money on this product prior to upgrading your scope if it works fine in daylight, as this light makes daylight out too distances double any other light I have used can even give usable light (that is a lot of lights too).


Thanks for a great product.


HELLFYR chose a HALOGEN bulb. Why not HID or LED?

Firstly, despite common beliefs and perhaps wishful thinking not even a 100W HID has the output of the HELLFYR bulb. The reality is the majority of HID kits are poor quality Chinese in origin with grossly exaggerated claims for the ballast and bulbs. Aside from basic hardware quality issues where these fail is their inferior light quality.

Ideally, you need to see maximum accurate detail, particularly if it is a mission critical scenario. You do not want washed out or missing colours, harsh shadows or unnecessary glare. HID & LED or any light source with a typical 5000K rating is less effective than the 100 CRI (colour rendering index) halogen due to the Tyndall effect of their propensity to scatter light in atmosphere contaminated by dust, smoke, moisture or other particulate. This phenomena is often observed as a blue bias glare or fog type bounce back to the viewer resulting in less detail and distance being achieved. A halogen bulb of equivalent brightness and volume will always be superior in this regard as technology currently stands. To discuss further please contact us and talk to our designers. Footnote: The only exception to this is a short arc type bulb however the costs are exorbitantly high initial purchase price and ongoing running costs of bulbs at hundreds of dollars each.

FYRLYTs compared to Lightforce 240 100W / 70W HID & NBB 35W 60W 225 HID / LED.

Our Nordic distributor, Andreas conducted his own comparison test when asked by customers how the FYRLYT's LUXSIS 5000, NEMESIS 9000 & HELLFYR 12000 compared to the Lightforce 240mm SL in its standard 100W halogen, 70W HID variant and finally the NBB 225 in 35W, 60W HID and LED.


These images by Andreas are interesting and we think show up relevant characteristics well. All shot from same position, time at 50M. Lots of detail in a very vertical plane that tells a lot more than the typical blank wall type shot. Also of merit is the tonal range of the background and how it displays the characteristics of the different light sources in the detail you can see.


Note the HELLFYR 12000 (top left) is our spotlight not a driving light but Andreas could not resist putting it in there. (Those interested in spotlights should note the difference between the 240 70W LF and the HELLFYR 12000).

We think it is patently obvious the superior rendering and also all important even volume even at 50M that the FYRLYT LUXSIS 5000 and FYRLYT NEMESIS 9000 are displaying.
