    It's products like these that look interesting, but until you try one, it's very hard to know if you will like it. I've tried a lot of snoots, each with pluses and minuses. On this one, the questions that come to mind are: How do the aim it--the hardest part of snooting if you are alone; is it very powerful?--I'm skeptical here that such a small device can project much of a beam; how small a point can you shoot, and can you shoot different size circles?
