Is there a tidy way to shape beam of torch ?
Okay, I've just received two P7 900 lumen torches from Hong Kong and I must say that they seem quite bright. Certainly brighter than my tesco cree torch. Anyway the thing is that because they are quite bright I can point them a fair way down the road but I am certain that they will dazzle drivers. I haven't used them yet, just strapped them to the bike handlebars but I looked at the reflection in the window and they are quite dazzzling. Maybe they won't annoy car drivers. But assuming that they will, has anyone found a slick way of masking the high part of the beam ? My state-of-the-arc method involves rubber bands and tinfoil over the upper part of the face of the torch. But there must be a better way. Incidentally when I was looking for bike lights I only found one that actually had a beam shaped for road use.
