The Sniper II Pro is a compact high intensity tactical LED torch with 6 levels including two strobes and a huge 1,210 lumen output. Only a few short years ago this output was unimaginable in a compact handheld torch, now all this is in your hand. This is the torch chosen by SAPOL (South Australia Police) for their whole force, as well as being chosen by many specialist Police and Defence units throughout Australia. We would probably consider the Sniper II Pro one of the best General Duties flashlights. It also makes a great general use torch!
Light Output and Beam Pattern
The 1,210 lumen LED in the Sniper II Pro LED rechargeable torch provides a good beam out to 100 metres. The reflector head provides a beam of spot surrounded by flood and a solid pool of light in the midrange. There are 6 levels of light output – high, medium, medium/low, low, slow emergency strobe and fast disorientating strobe. The Sniper II Pro utilises a 35mm head to give a 100 metre throw. We believe the Sniper II Pro and Pro Police are our equal best Police torch, the difference being the head size to give the required throw.
The Sniper II Pro provides 1.5 hours of light on high with the standard battery and 45 hours hours on low.
The Procap is a conventional tailswitch in the centre but has a ring around the outside to change levels. This can be used to change the level of the torch when it is on or before it is turned on. Particularly useful for say picking low before turning on to not cause too much reflection when reading or say selecting strobe before approaching offenders. It offers two strobe levels, a fast disorientating strobe and a slower emergency strobe. While unlikely that anyone will use the Sniper II Pro as a rifle torch with the Magnetic Mount (Police applications would usually use a picatinny rail mount) it is worth noting the magnets in the Procap are not compatable with the magnetic mount, we suggest installing the standard tailcap if using that mount.
TTT and Construction
The Sniper II Pro features Wolf Eyes Thermal Transfer Tube (TTT) which is a brass liner designed to drag damaging heat away from the LED and radiate it from the body, basically using the whole bodies thermal mass as a heatsink to radiate the heat away. The body is constructed of 6061-T6 aircraft aluminium, the two metals bonded together creating a structure stronger than either individually. Thirdly this brass liner also provides better electrical conductivity. The body is a standard 25.4 mm (1”) allowing fitment to numerous firearm mounts and also a good size to carry. The body is finished in a low temperature Hard Anodizing in tactical black.
The reflector is made of high temperature coated alloy, with layers of alloy films for a long lasting reflective finish.
Being Regulated means your Wolf Eyes Sniper II Pro doesn’t dim as the battery flattens. The regulation unit always maintains the optimum amount of power to the LED, meaning that as the voltage decreases as the battery flattens we increase the amperage to still provide the same current to the LED. This also works in reverse, contrary to what is advertised you do not want to use multiple batteries to overpower your LED, while it will shine brightly for a short time it will eventually overheat and suffer reduced output for the rest of it’s remaining life.
The Sniper II Pro LED torch uses our LRB168A (18650) battery which is a protected lithium ion battery. Being Lithium Ion means the battery has large reserves of power, meaning only one is required which keeps the torch profile within 25.4mm, important for a professional use flashlight and compatibility will all mounts. Being protected is very important, lithium ion batteries can discharge very quickly and also suffer thermal runaway (we have all see those videos of laptops on fire or exploding), this chip controls charging and discharging.
Due to the Lithium Ion batteries the Sniper II Pro flashlight works well in sub zero conditions, unlike most batteries which lose substantial reserves of energy if used in lower temperatures. The picture below is of a Wolf Eyes flashlight on low, which was then put in the freezer and frozen. After 4 days it was still shining – inside the ice cube!
Australian Approved Charger
Your Wolf Eyes torch is supplied with an Australian Approved Charger, meaning firstly it is safe for your or your staff and secondly all your insurances apply (Building, Workers Comp, Home).
The Sniper II Pro flashlight has a removable LED which can be upgraded when suitable newer LEDs come out.
As can be seen a number of Wolf Eyes torches are waterproof including the Sniper II Pro, but we would recommend something from our diving line for diving use.
The Wolf Eyes Sniper II Pro torch can be personalised to suit your unit, division, command, team or organisation with engraving on the side. A great way to reduce loss and build pride.
The Wolf Eyes Sniper II Pro torch is supported in Australia with a full range of spares and a 1300 911 007phone number to answer your questions. Due to the large number of Police and Military units using Wolf Eyes torches and lights in Australia, including the whole of the South Australian Police using this exact Sniper II Pro torch and many, many other specialist units, we are both morally and contractually obligated to have adequate spares on hand, which we do and also service facilities. As well as this, after hours the 1300 911 007 number is answered by live operators to take your message so it can be attended to in working hours. For your safety we want to keep your torch always working.

Different Levels of the Procap
This short video shows the different levels of the Procap and the ability to preselect a level before turning on - the video goes through high, medium, medium low, low, slow emergency strobe and the fast disorientating strobe. The torch is then turned off and low preselected. Then off again and the disorientating strobe is selected.

Take it everywhereBy: Stephen Payne on 11 February 2016I work Security at a large shopping centre with variable shifts and I find myself using this torch many times throughout the day. The pro cap feature is so convenient for getting the setting I want when I want. It is really well built and sturdy having been dropped a few times and being submerged. The strobe is very handy for getting the upper hand on more than a few of my encounters with drunks turning their aggression to me. Goes very well with the traffic wand attachment. All my friends want one
ExcellentBy: Werner.B on 21 January 2016I was shown this torch by a friend in SAPOL I was amazed by its capability and so I had to get one. Working in Protective Services I had to have the best, for everyone working in Security I Highly recommend this product. I have had many torches over my 25 year career but this one is number one.
Perfection !By: Paul Galna Qld Australia on 12 January 2016I was shown this torch by a mate who's just come back from tours of Afghanistan and he swore by it's reliability and performance capabilities ,what could be a harder set of challenges to face than those ,I had to have one as soon as he showed it to me and let me tell you this is definitely THE BEST TORCH I have ever purchased .Value for money ,Unbelievable performance /durability (I'm a rough bastard ) perfect size and great technology.
