    Hi

    Which headlamp would you reccomend for pier and shore fishing? I've looked at the results of the survey on the Holderness site and the Princeton TEC Apex comes out on top.

    This is the one I am fancying but just wanted to see if anyone knows of a newer/better headlamp. I have heard about the Cree ones but was after something robust. Also never know which Cree one to get and from who on eBay as some sellers have mixed reports etc.

    Thanks for the help

    Re: Headlamp

    Most of the lads use the cheep crees now. Ive got one and would still go for a more robust lamp. The Crees are cheaply made, My battery £ucked up after first charge and I was told that they often use old batteries bought in bulk.

    I had a princeton and rated it highly. However Ive just bought a fenix h11 and can tell you its every bit as good if not better than the Princeton and about 50 quid cheaper.

    Thank you for the quick replies and links. I hadn't seen the fenix hp11 before. Gets some great reviews and a fair bit cheaper than the Princeton.
