Thanks, friend. I'd rather not have useless rumors spread around about perfectly good safety equipment. Although using safety equipment ≠ safety.

Not directed at you, MagnaMagicBtu:

Common sense = safety. Using goggles is part of common sense, but not the end all and be all of it. Everyone should use goggles to protect themselves, but they should also use their laser in such a way so as to wear them for the same reason one wears a life vest in a canoe. You shouldn't need it, but it's just good responsibility to wear it anyways.

I got one of these things a couple of days ago as well -- and wasted no time posting a review of here on LPF and on my own website.

Default Re: My Review of the Spyder 3 Arctic

I take mine with me everywhere; a laser isn't considered a weapon here unless it's used as such. I don't know why I'd need to bring it with me, but seeing as how it cannot be turned on without the tailcap and smartswitch code, the only way another person could get injured is if I told them how to use it, they ignored my safety instructions and turned it on whilst it was pointed at themselves, which wouldn't be my fault, having already told them what laser safety means. But I don't think it's a good idea to hand my Arctic off to anyone who doesn't already know that lasers are not toys, or flash lights, and that they're in fact very powerful tools.

Can someone tell me what Bypass mode is? Is it the same as full power/momentary mode? The WL video says there's a bypass mode, but it's not mentioned in my Arctic User Manual & Safety Guide that came with it.
